1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a full white head. Tons of apricot, peach, artificial and natural, buttery diacetyl, not very nice. Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Sickly sweet, mostly artificial apricot/peach, less buttery than the nose, still not very nice; quite sweet with no bitterness and a long, possibly artificial stone fruit finish. Alco-pop for sure. No thanks.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 550 ml. bottle. Pours a medium lasting ivory head, with attractive lacing, over a cloudy, amber orange (SRM 10) body....nose is apricot, hints of cereal....taste is apricot, light sweetness, finishing with light tart acid...mouth feel thick, carbonation adds nice tingling spritz. This is a well done Fruit Beer. There is enough character from the apricot, and adequate acid to help balance the sweetness that comes naturally from the fruit. This is the best of the fruit series so far. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 6/24/2013. Pours lightly hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge apricot, peach, orange, pear, honey, wheat, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big tart apricot, peach, orange, pear, wheat, honey, bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, peach, pear, apple, wheat, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness of juicy apricot, fruity yeast ester, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic fruit beer. Tons of robust and balanced tart apricot and pale malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Ashley. Light, weird pour with a big white head. Aroma is apricot and sweetness. Taste is kinda off, more apricot, and an unpleasant finish.
