After brewing one of our fruited sour ales, we found ourselves with a few too many leftover apricots in the fridge. Rather than starting a smoothie company, we decided to create this unique take on the popular Belgian-style golden ale. The addition of apricots strikes a lovely balance with our fruity house yeast, yielding a delightfully mishmishchieveous ale. Effervescent, delightfully fruity, yet surprisingly dry, this is a great beer for the upcoming, warm, Summer months.

Bought this recently so not sure how retired it really is. Slightly hazy orange pour with big white head. Nose is tart and sweet apricot first with an undercurrent of belgianesque yeast and malt. Flavor is a touch thinner than expected, yet slightly cloying. Pleasant, but this one’s on the weak side for the Bruery.

Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, thick, moderate foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Apricot nose, a little musty and barnish.   Dry and tart up front, not as strong in Apricot as the nose suggested, but its still there.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft bubbley Apricot on the finish, a little bubbley, slightly dry and tart.   Not as robust or bright as I was hoping for, but decent.   Seemed to foam over pretty good when I inially poured it tho.   Decent Summer like brew.

Bottle split at ABC Beer The Hague, 24/09/2015. Thanks. A hazed golden / orange coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is tart orange, baby sick, sweet rice pudding. Weird. Flavour is composed of white peach, semi sweet peach and apricot yogurt, tangy orange in the finish. Palate is sweet and sour, highish carbonation, medium bodied, Lingering nice orange rind tangy.

Bottle during a Bottle Share. Fruity obviously. Apricot on the aroma and flavor. Now if only it were sour.

Taster on tap at the bruery. Overall numerical rating only. The standard bruery line is not outstanding like the rest.

MrHangover (4020) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2015
Bottle @ Pre-Borefts Tasting, courtesy of the European Crew! Pours a hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of white fruits, slightly vineous, some apricots and other tropical fruits. Flavor is sweet, fruity and has a light tarty aftertaste. Not really boring, just a bit uninteresting, but certainly enjoyable.
