MONTEITH'S APRICOT WHEAT BEER

Monteith's Apricot Wheat Beer. Into each life some rain must fall, wrote Wordsworth, and it's a line that appropriately springs to mind as I choke down this, one of the most offensive beers I've had in ages.

Monteith's has given us so much, the flavour-packed IPA, the bitey Pilsener, the surprising Celtic and, of course, the magnificent Doppelbock Winter Ale.

This is nothing like those.

An "unfiltered apricot wheat beer", supposedly a Hefeweizen with some apricots added to "balance the tart clove and banana flavours of our wheat malt and special yeast" this is a beer I can confidently say I will never drink again.

I've never been a fan of fruit beers, ever the mighty Mikkeller failed miserably with his cherry Saison (blech) and this is no better.

You can almost taste a decent beer in there but it's like someone added a shot of cheap schnapps in the glass. Or cough mixture.

In the words of my co-taster "this has a weird bouquet, tastes like medicine and leaves a bad taste in my mouth".

We're now drinking Peroni to wash the taste out, what does that tell you?

Ah well, I came in with words from a poet, might as well go out with one if my own:

Their Pilsener and Doppelbock's great,
But this apricot crap I don't rate,
It tastes like the sweat,
From an overweight pet,
What the hell were you thinking of, mate?
