The beer has an aggressive apricot jam or a strange chemical candy peach aroma.

The flavor follows with follows with that strange peach flavor. A nice tartness, and then onto a candy and grainy malt body.

For some reason, the beer just doesn't taste exactly right.

Bomber into a snifter. This review is a long time coming since cavedave put it on my radar. The brew appears a clouded golden color with a frothy cap that exceeds your typical berliner head formation and far exceeds expectations regarding the lacing and head retention.

The aroma is strong with more of an apricot jam aspect than peach. Somewhat earthen and lemony with a grain backing presence that doesnt necessarily scream wheat. The more I smell this, I cant get over how much this smells sweet and candy-like which is quite atypical of the style regardless of a fruit addition.

The flavor is quite tart almost to the point of being sharp and acedic moreso than lactic. Just like the aroma hinted, there is a deep fruit apricot flavor that is much more prevelant than the typical lemony lacto fruity quality typically seen in the style. Perhaps the most distracting part of this brew is the candy-like sweetness that lasts long after each sip and feels very unnantural. The sweetness is almost like marshmallow fluff.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Dont get me wrong, this is interesting and enjoyable by its own regard but it isnt something I would want to drink on a regular basis. That borderline cloying sweetness to the finish really clashes with the tartness and makes for quite a disjointed and seemingly artifical brew. Maybe the bottle I tried was an anomoly, if that is the case I wouldnt mind having this again. But as is, I would not seek this out.
