Tap @ Chucks Hop Shop. Pours clear golden, still. Aromas of sweet apples, citrus, peach, light esters. Taste is sweet up front, apples, some pearlike notes, coriander, orange peel, light hoppy finish. dfearnley (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2017
Oui, oui, oui. C’est Chimay avec les pommes. Finit. Well, there are other things. The apricot does come through, but this tastes like an applely, sour, saison and me likey. luttonm (6956) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle in Seattle, shared by Trevor. Soft bubbly ring, soft cloudy orange. Intriguing aroma, inviting yeast, a little bit sweet, and a soft green hop flavor rounding it out. Unusual cider for sure, with a more bracing (and Belgian they say?) yeast character, with some peppery spice. Apple is tart and clean behind. Fairly sparkling body, but very dry and a bit tart overall. Green apple and some fruity green hops. This is unusual, but pretty delicious. White wine astringency, yeast throughout. Intriguing. beerplace (2288) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with no head. Aroma is very ascorbic with some sweet apple notes on the background. Same character taste. Definitely not so exciting like its’ description sounds. bulldogops (2850) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2016
Rating #1845 - 2015.08.06 - Draught - @revolutionyeg Hazy yellow pour with some of the apricot puree (unfiltered). Super carbonated, bubbly. Aroma is apricot, sweet apple, mild grapefruit. Palate is more, some peachy sweet notes, balanced by the dryness provided by the ripened fruit and alcohol. Would have liked more residual bitterness. Refreshing.

Tap at Marciero. Clear gold, flat. Nose of apricot, apples, hops. Sweet and spice, somewhat like a Sauvignon Blanc, with apricots. A bit strange, but interesting. maekchu (4098) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2016
Tap at Hanshin Department Store Portland Fair. Nose of grapes, and strangely near-pungent blossoms (perhaps the coriander and grains of paradise?), bittersweet apricot. Spiced apples, apricot, and tangy with wine-like favors. Thin body and lightly astringent. Very unusual aroma, hard to pin down. Interesting stuff. Wombata (627) - Kobe, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Tap at Hanshin Dept.
Aroma: Floral, ripe tropical fruit, very "Viognier like" with a touch of of lychee, apple.
Palate: Smooth full-mouthfeel that moves from light to moderately sweet to a dry, crisp finish.
Flavor: Ripe Apple, light, dry apricot, green apple towards the finish.
Comment: If I tasted this blind, I’d peg it as a white wine with some aromatic grape like Viognier. At this level, cider is no longer the rough and ready stuff we made at home. KansaiBeerLvrs (5500) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Draft at Hanshin. Reverend Nat Hallelujah Hopricot 6.7%
Clear deep gold with a quick burst of juicy hops then rich Apple in the aroma. The flavor is a bit more flat, like apple sponge cake with a lightly tart spicy semi-dry finish. OK.

Had both the fresh hop and hallelujah side by side, quite different, but since they are the same here I guess I’ll just input the rating for the one I liked significantly better, the fresh hop version. It pours cloudy yellow / orange. The aroma has tangerine, fruity hops, apricot and mush. It has a medium mushy body with light carbonation. The aroma has rich apples, tangerine, herbs and basil. The finish is earthy and grassy. Really liked the fresh hop, the regular was just kinda there.
