superspak (5880) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy and lightly tart/tangy apricots, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, and bread; with light notes of hay, straw, grass, oak, funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/light funky yeast, apricots, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of big juicy and lightly tart/tangy apricots, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, and bread; with light notes of hay, straw, grass, oak, funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of apricots, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, honey, candi sugar, wheat, bread, hay, straw, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/light funky yeast, apricots, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; with a good malt/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing tart/tangy fruit dryness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/syrupy/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is a very good sweetened fruit lambic style. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/light funky yeast, apricots, and pale malt/sugar sweetness; very smooth and refreshing to drink, with the mildly tart/tangy/drying finish. Big juicy fruit flavors and balanced sweetness; with a good mix of fruity yeast complexity, and a touch of funk. A very enjoyable offering. Met my expectations.

Golden in colour. Very odd aroma! Possibly a slight amount of acetic in aroma. Not really any apricot in aroma. Sweet aftertaste, not much apricot.

SinH4 (6121) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2017
Bottle. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is apricot, a touch funk, bubblegum. Taste is apricot, sugary, sweet and sour. Silky mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Barely ok, but better than the Fraises version.

vinivini (2828) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUL 27, 2017
Hazy orange-to-amber ale with small head. Aroma: sticky apricot jam, wheat, yeast. Light to medium body. Sweet taste. Too sweet. No tartness. Just that massive apricot marmelade.

4.1
mviljamaa (183) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 20, 2017
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.
