3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange with a 1 finger, creamy eggshell head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is heavy on the apricot, some toast and tree fruit. Flavor is pretty heavy with apricot, some tart apple, toast, floury wheat, a nice, tart apricot note toward the finish along with lingering toast and light citrus notes. Excellently creamy mouthfeel, with a fittingly sharp, but fairly light carbonation and nice, fruity acidity, neutral to dry, but juicy finish. Really nice palate. Overall surprisingly good beer. I honestly wasnít expectiong much, since I am not a huge fan of apricots, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Tons of apricot and orange flavor, interesting fermentation.. somewhere between champaign and a really subtle sour/wild ale. Great beer.

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.

A pleasant surprise. Aroma is freshly cut apricots with just a hint of lemon. Pours hazy yellow with a big frothy head. Taste is fresh apricot, some noticeable stale bread finish. Great fresh fruit mouthfeel. Was very happy with the showcase of the fruit. I will be looking for this again.

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 Iíve had in quite some time, in fact.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy "apricot" gold with a 4 finger creamy beige head. The aroma is apricot skin. Med body, almost. Flavor is apricot and mixed grain. Surely wheat is there. Itís neither sweet nor bitter. Fairly floral as well as apricot. Certainly a nice drink.

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

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a generous white head. Nice apricot aroma. Odd becasue I wouldnít previously have thought of apricots as having a very distinctive aroma. Flavour is a supreme balance of malt and fruit with a touch of wheat. The apricot is very well rendered. A touch oversweet on the finish. This is probably the best fruit beer Iíve tasted.

550ml brown bottle. Hazy gold pour, somewhat noisy white cap that settles to a nice inch or so of rocky foam. Strong apricot fruit nose, jammy, floral. taste has some fruit sweetness up front, gains the tart and tangy character from the fruit midway, slight lemony note, dries up a bit in the finish, notes of grainy malt. Medium body and carbonation. Fruits hit their mark here, tastes pretty natural and not overly sweet. Well done, would drink this again.
