250ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Sweet, but a touch sharp too, sticky resiny oak barrel aroma. Peach or perhaps apricot too. The compulsory de Troch level of bizarity too - anna got beef! Tastes of beef and bacon in a delicate sweet and sour apricot sauce! Sharpness is very nice, but body’s very sweet. A touch of soap in places. Finish is pleasantly woody, again a bit sweet, and very fruity - peach, apricot, and lemon. They’re weird, but they’re wonderful in their own quirky way - please keep experimenting, mr head brewer!

[Bottle] Not sure what happened to this thing, but this was one of the worst beers I’ve had. The aroma was like sweet apricot, but there was this really sharp, green aroma really similar to jalapeno peppers. The flavor matched the aroma. Two sips and down the drain.

25cl, from the brewery, not complex sweet fruit brew, yet refreshing, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special

Bottle, bought @ Utobeer, London.
Pours deep orange with a small, creamy, white head. Sweet fruity aroma, some apricot, but also lots of marzipan. Light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light tart fruitiness. Not very good.

mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2008
Pours a hazy dull orange with a small white layer of foam with some nice lacing. Aroma is fresh apricots - very sweet! Tastes very sweet indeed, pop-like. Low carb, quite creamy. Some lingering artificial aftertaste. Mmmmmeh.

..has a slightly funky sugary aroma, that and apricots ... has lots of sweet and tangy flavours, with some intresting back funk... a nice beer that refreshes after a hot day digging graves...

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 30, 2008
Bottle, 3.5%. Citric aroma. Hazy orange colour, dark floaties. Small white head. Sweet flavour, quite citric, strange smokiness.

unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2008
Purchased at Foremost Sunset Corners. 12 oz capped and corked bottle. Extremely unique aroma. Not the best smell. Smells of Grey Poupon mustard, grandma’s attic, and the oak from an old decaying outhouse. Pours deep rich golden color. Apricot juice... really? Was the juice from the apricot pit?? Flavor is quite syrupy and sweet. Overall you get past that frightening smell. It is quite a change from the norm... Candi coated fruit juice.

ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orange body with, well, okay... so there’s no head. Who says a beer had to have one anyhow? Smell: Displeasing aroma of spoiled vegetables, mustard seed, and cheap, rotting wood. Any apricot to be found here seems fake at best, and it’s not worth subjecting yourself to the rest of the aroma to find it. Taste: Sweetish, apricot juice flavor is fleeting, as a funkiness that can only be described as trash can juice creeps in and never lets go. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks times a million! Grab a Cantillon, get yourself a 3 Fonteinen, but do steer clear of this mess.
