4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a refrigerated bottle into a brandy snifter. Pours a partly hazy orange color with a white head of foam. The aroma is as much like an apricot as anything else I have ever had. More than Fou’Foune even. There’s not much in the way of tartness, although there is just a hint. Taste is like biting into a fresh apricot. This beer is great! I wouldn’t mind having some more of it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear & bright orange-gold body with a good sized white head. Aroma of apricot nectar and lightly toasted grain. Flavour is a great combo of a clean, simple golden ale and fresh apricot notes that start quite sweet, but develop a nice tartness in the finish, where a bit of Earl Grey tea comes through as well. Really nice stuff - one of the best non-lambic fruit beers I’ve had in quite some time, in fact.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent fruit beer. Since I don’t care for apricot, I am rating this to my tastes not how good it is. Lovers of apricot would love this. Aroma was big, sweet and fruity. Apricot and sugar. Pour was a nice cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Taste was big sweet and fruity. Apricot and fruit cocktail with nice carbonation. The sweetness was a little too much and there was not anything to balance it out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 33cl. Rating number 2800. A very approachable beer for almost anyone I would imagine. Sweet but not artificial. Good in itself but I can’t seem to find the right setting to drink a beer which is that filling at 5.1 ABV.
