4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2004 or early 2005 bottle, not sure. Highly sedimented bottle pours a very hazy brass and copper toned amber, fairly bright despite being so heavily unfiltered. Small off-white head with decent retention. Aroma of soft, not overdone apricots, light vanilla blossoms and light honeyed maltiness. Flavor starts out with a piquant apricot flavor, I really like the light tanginess. The wheat quickly smooths things out and then a light vanilla and honey pilsener-like malt provide a good sweetness and medium body. Natural carbonation is still quite prominent on the palate, but it dies off well and leaves the beer no worse for it. I will admit to apricot wheats not having a whole lot in common with beer, as the apricot is the main focus, but you can still taste the malt in this one, a little yeast perhaps, as well. Reminded me of Ithaca Apricot wheat that I used to drink fresh on draught in Rochester. That was the last good apricot wheat I have had (not counting fou foune). I’m going to find this stuff on draught and sit down with a pitcher of it, next time I’m in Montreal.

Almost copper coloured, appearance was faint fuitiness, not overbearing on the palate. Would have no problem to make this a regular offering to guests.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark gold hazy body topped with an average foamy head. Unidimensional aroma dominated by apricot. Mild taste with good hoppy finish. Fair stuff, although this is far from being my favorite.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Sampled draught at Brutopia, Montréal.
Hazy golden, Loads of apricot in the aroma. Sweet with some wheat character. Light flavoured and one dimensional, somewhat fizzy mouthfeel. At least it stays away from being cloying.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear orange gold color, just a white ring of foam around the glass a head. Aroma of apricot, but it feels more like syrup or essence than the fruit itself, some wheat too. Sweet, fruity flavor of apricot, again, it feels more like syrup, sweet finish. Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Cheap fruit beer ...

I always wonder why apricot is always buried under a mountain of syrup as a flavour in products. It’s a tad malty and a bit too clear. Nothing to write home about really.
