4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
550mL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a touch of pink. Looks like Apricot juice. Thick creamy white foam. Aroma of apricot puree, loads of fruit. Distant floral hops? No essence of malt. Tastes mildly sweet, a touch of fruit tartness. Again it tastes like apricot nectar. So good and fruity, it feels healthy; like a smoothie. Thick texture, heavy bodied, light ABV. Apricot has dominated the existence of all the senses in this beer, in the best ways possible. Very refreshing, an excellent fruit beer. (3342)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is yeast and apricot juice/skin. The flavor is apricot juice and a big sweetness/sourness that dominates into the finish. Not exceptional but pretty good still.

Bottle bought at whole foods, poured a light golden color with aromas of all apricot preserves. Not much in the aroma, it translates to the flavor, sweet apricot jelly, annd light grain. Ok beer overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The appearance is cloudy peach with a medium head. The aroma is fruity but also a bit meaty and there is a yeasty beer underneath. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer to try but it has an off aftertaste that throws it for me.

Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday tasting. Aroma is huge apricot, like those cheap little puddings, not much else. Flavour is sweet and tangy, cider like, light wort note. Okay. More a cider or lemonade.
