3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Gardiner & Haskins, Bristol. Pale amber with a slight white head and moderate carbonation. Light arma of apricot, peach juice and a hint of lemon zest, with a trace of rustic yeast. Flavour had some sweetish fruit juice to start, before some more substantial malts, and then a dryish finish which left some tannins in the mouth. Avoided being syrupy, which is commendable. Good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright orange sunshine body with a thin white collar. Sweet apricot aroma. Sugary, candied fruits, dried apricot. Some nice things going on. This is a suitable beer for one who gravitates toward the sweeter side. Personally, I find this cloying. A few ounces is more than sufficient. A bottle to be shared several ways.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - golden with a slight haze and thin ring for a white head. Aroma of fresh apricots (unsurprisingly) and some yoghurt. Taste of apricots, a little marmalade and a little orange in the finish. Medium body, low carbonation. A tasty treat.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The apricot is very there, so is a ton of sweetness, don't care for it. Smells good enough though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured a golden in color with a thick layer of white head that retained well. Aroma has jammy fruit, fruity sweetness, cream cheese, and some malts. Mouth feel is medium light with good carbonation. Flavor again is led by the fruit, more juice than fresh fruit, some sweetness, and some underlying malt. Just too much juice for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, slightly golden yellow with a thick and rather persistent ivory head. Apricot overtone reaches out and touches you from a fair distance. Though quite strong and sweet, it lets through a peep of malt. Flavor is quite fruity, almost more cider or wine (Apricot cider or wine? I suppose it’s doable) than beer; however, the malty undertone reminds you what sort of potent potable this is. Heavy texture has some good beery fizz. Apricot in liquid form. If you love apricots, here’s a brew for you.
