1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Poured orangey color ale with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is quite weak but I can distinguish some sweet fruity flavour and some malt. Taste is almost indescribable, like a mix between some poorly grown apricot (lacking flavour and sweetness) and malt that doesn’t do any favour to this mix. Like all fruit beer, they can be a wonderful experience when correctly balanced or a complete disaster when things go wrong, such as this case was. Almost needs to wonder if this was a bad bottle.

A decent ale, pours translucent amber, like sunlight peering through clouds. Nice feel to this one, not too fizzy, very nice. Flavor is a little bland, not much to it. Towards the end of the bottle, the flavor I that was really coming through to me was rye bread.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean golden pour, highly filtered appearance. Small white head but too mucg carbonation to give it any staying power. Little and thin lacing. Very fruity and pleasant aroma with just a touch of hops. Flavor bursting of apricots and mandarin orange. Almost a bit too fruity at first but the expected (and braced-for) cloying sweetness never attacked. I really liked this beer but it would be hard to drink more than 2 or 3 in a sitting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gold, very clear, large fast bubbles form a wispy head head with no retention. Light creamy apricot aroma with the barest undercurrent of nutty malt. Nearly flavorless; white bread soaked in water, hints of apricot and flowers. Sharp carbonation and dry crisp finish. Watery palate. Faint artificial peach flavor aftertaste. Overall, this is a completely pointless as beer, and hardly qualifies as flavored water. A beverage fit for babies and girly-men.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber color with a small white head. Thin body. Some hints of apricot in the nose. Taste is actually well balanced, lots of apricot syrup, but not enough to make it unpleasant, some sweet malt, caramel, and not much else. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow/amber color. Aroma of peaches and apricots. Body is thin, and the peach/apricot flavor is just about all that is there. There is a little bitterness.
Not much to write home about.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not too impressed with this beer. There really wasn’t much here. Very little aroma and flavorwise it just was not there. This might be a tad overrated here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer poured a very light color like a domestic light beer. The taste was just like a commercial light beer with some fruitness added to it. I was not very impressed with this beer.
