Tasty beer. Not for all palate, but nice experience. It helps if you like apricot! Very nice nose, good color also.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2007 Bon au goût, mais ça goûte les abricôt. J’aime le hublon. J’ai essayé cette bière, mais pour son goût, je la trouve bonne. Si on est un amateur d’abricot, c’est bon.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle acquired in trade with Boutip (thanks!). Best before date of Ma 31, 05. Poured a medium hazy golden color with an averaged sized slightly off white head. Apricot dominates the aroma. Tastes of apricots (not as strong as the aroma), wheat, and honey. Medium sweet with a light tangy/bitter finish to it. Drank this one after being outside in the 95 degree weather today and it wasn’t that bad for a fruit beer.

The nose is what hits you first - but this is nowhere near as sweet as the aroma would have you believe. Bitter on the palate and sharp, but flavours moderating into a very pleasant aftertaste. Excellent.

Draft: I really didn’t like this too much it was like a budweiser with apricot flavor in it, just real watered down and metal tasting, think it would’ve been better bottled.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber color, good foamy head, peach and apricot aromas follow throught on a medium-bodied yeast, with a vibrant apricot flavor emerging on the palate, with modest hop bitter in malty finish.

Orange-yellow in colour, kind of hazy. Subtle apricot flavour matches nicely with the clean wheat beer taste. Not too fruity, very refreshing drink.

341ml brown bottle. Floral fruity aromas. Golden beer, small layer of tight bubbles on top. Apricot noticable in the mouth with light caramel note, light hops and wheat.

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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost copper coloured, appearance was faint fuitiness, not overbearing on the palate. Would have no problem to make this a regular offering to guests.
