3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 2013-04-29. No notes. much fruitier when fresh. 7/3/6+/3/13-14 Sampled at the brewery
March 2007. Draft @ Coles in Buffalo. Golden yellow with a small white head. Fruity apricot aroma (6+) with similar fruit character in the flavour. Light wheaty tartness to the malt base. Average palate is slightly more full but not quite medium. Pleasant but does not make me reach for another. 6+/3/6+/13 - 3.2
June 2004. Mondial. Bottle. Yellow amber body with a white head. Slighty fruity apricot in the aroma. Pleasant, fairly light and restrained apricot flavour. Quite pleasant and easy to drink. Very well balanced, and not at all cloying. Mondiale 3T (Radek). 6/3/7/3/15 - 3.4

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nasty apricots on nasty toasted white bread. Deep gold body. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly bitter. No no no. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: ack.

Been to a hair salon lately? I think this beer was too. The aroma reminds me of hair dye and perfume. Unfortunately, it tastes like hair dye too. Perhapo I had a bad bottle. Regardless, I’ll leave this one for the stylists to enjoy. Yuck!!

hm, not bad, not great either. i couldnt drink more than the 22 oz i bought of it though. pours orange colored. strong smell of apricot. apricot taste too, but this is a kind of pleasent taste to accompany the brew. not something i would buy again, but its not something to pour out either. worth trying once.

This is like eating a bucket of buttered popcorn, whew! Lots of apricot in the aroma, even when the bottle is first popped. Slightly overwhelming. This is like eating a piece of white bread toast with lots of butter and apricot jam, not cloying our sour, but definitely over the top. As the cap says, ’you can win, if you can grin.’

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange. fast rising bubble and lively white head. Sea salt and dry apricot nose. Very fruity throughout, dry at the back of my throat. Some strange bitter and sour notes wrestled at the finish. I also found some strange rotten-like flavor lurking in the finish.

12 oz bottle at Tom’s 30th in New Haven. This is an improvement over the earlier Coronas. Mildly hopped, modest body, hint of apricots?

This apricot ale is a bit artificial. Tastes of iron. A sweet taste, but not like beer. More like soda.
