SanfordBrewer (1574) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Hazy gold, no head, syrupy medium body, low carbonation.

Aroma: sweet toffee bready malt, rich apricotl.

Taste: sweet caramel, dark ripe apricot, and a nutty or pit note.

Great flavor. Sweet, but not cloying The sourness is not as harsh as most lambics, which is nice, but it could use a little more.

Pours with weak foam. Carbonation is big. Color is a bit cloudy orange-pink. Aroma has dried apricot, fermentation, raspberry, some dried plum, lactic acid/sour beer aroma. Palate is a bit more oily than dry, but is almost well balanced. Bubbles are big and the carbonation feels sharp. Taste is sour and sweet in a good way and has sour dried apricot as dominant taste. Some raspberry, fresh sour strawberry, a hint of lemon. Very delicious. It’s a shame that the aroma does not live up to the taste. Still an excellent beer though.

Suprised by this low rating. Of this, the peche and the banana, this is the only interesting beer at all. An incredibly sour aroma with some floaties. It has a crazy bite. A rare one-at-a-time type beer. May have gone a little funky but I thought it was pretty decent.

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.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 Bottle. Imported from Belgium. Orange copper color, minimal head. Dried apricot aroma. Very sweet, dry flavor, not even a hint of malt or hop profile. Surprised at the low rating, I liked this a lot, though a bit weak. Wife remarked on how it tasted like new wine. I will have to venture further into the world of lambic.

Liked this a lot more than the notes. Winey in texture and taste with more sweetness than one would hope but I found it to be clean apricot sweetness. Some mild sourness. I enjoyed it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz corked green bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was musty, dryish, a hint of cardboard and a bit of apricot jam. The flavor was sweet and tangy apricot jam, sugar and yeast. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Quite tasty!

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of apricot-dough, earthy woodsiness, some sort of apricot confection aside from the dough that blended with it. Flavor again big on the apricot with tart and sweet notes that are quite pleasant and not artificial, medicinal, juice-like, anything of the sort. Last few chapeaus I’ve had I’ve sort of agreed with the consensus, but this one I liked.
