3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Neck is stamped SJ18L1.
Appearance: The body is a cloudy amber to dark orange with a frothy white head that has decent retention and settles into a thick coating on the top of the body.
Aroma: The aroma is lively, lots of apricot aroma ranging from tart to sweet, perhaps even a touch acetic. This smells wonderful.
Taste: This is lovely. The intro is sweet and fruit with the apricot which provides the main flavor here. The finish has a light tartness to it, with very mild vinegar notes.
Palate: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
Overall: This is the apricot version of Duchess de Bourgonge. I greatly enjoy this, it’s a pleasant surprise!

Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Muddy golden blonde with a nervous crackling and a compact white head. Soft fruity aromas of apricot, jam, lemon, wood. The taste is very fresh, sweet and fruity with a present acidulity, nice balance sugar-acidity. Bitterness of almond-kernel, hints of vanilla, wheat and fruity Lambic.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale golden yellow with a white head. Aroma intense with fresh apricots. Taste is very sweet followed by a slightly tart orange citrus turn. Ends up a little to much towards the sweet note.

This is nicer than I hoped. Some funk and sourness to it with lots of apricot. I think more beer-wise than some are giving credit, though I don’t think credit is the right word. What I mean is, that they’re wrong. This is reasonably beery.

This is a surprisingly well done beer. The apricot consumes everything but not in an unpleasant way. Well done.
