Good bottle, standard Sam Smith throwback label; foggy gold. Pleasantly sour, pickled apricot aroma. Sweet and tart, you can almost feel the fuzzy apricot skin on your tongue, lightly bitter. Medium body, medium tangy finish. Thanks, LuckyDog.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Crafty Pint, I think.
Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - dried apricots, not much else.
Taste - more of the same.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a lovely tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Great palate, mostly on the back of the fruit I’d have to say.
Overall - it’s nice but really the apricots dominate everything and if you hope to taste anything else, you’ll be disappointed.
