COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with only six ingredients. Malted 2-row barley, palisade hops, orange blossom honey, White Labs California Ale Yeast, apricots and San Diego carbon filtered tap water. Low bitterness is balanced by tart apricots with a sweet but not cloying finish. Barmy Ale can be aged up to eight years with a strong honey wine character emerging if cellared. Be careful not to be the barmiest of them all.

This beer is very rare and made in small batches. It is also very awsome from the first sip to the last! made with apricots and orange blossom honey it’s a 10.7% dream for strong ale and meade lovers. Strong fruit and honey through out and a nice full body. Nice mouth feel. Great carbonation.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body. Aroma is honey and mild apricot. Taste is runs sweet with an odd bitter finish. Texture is chalky.

TattooJack (479) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Poured from the bottle of a six pack (definitely can’t drink all 6 in one sitting). Pours hazy orange, taste is faint apricot and booze, with a slick honey aftertaste which makes it go down dangerously smooth. If you are looking for a non-offensive high powered beer to get you ripped, this is it. Be careful with this one, it bites back.

malrubius (2518) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Gold with ring. Honey apricot boozy grassy aroma. Very sweet honey apricot with very boozy spicy finish. Thick and slick and cloying. Blech.

SPDickerman (1152) - Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours clear golden orange with a small white fizz. Smells faintly fruity. Taste is sweet, hints of fruit, alcohol, and honey. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Ballast Point Barmy Apricot Ale finishes with a faint sweetness.

Obfuscate (459) - Minneapolis, - JUL 17, 2016
So thick it’s like baby food. No smell. Looks like a beer. Yikes! Fruity alcohol. Not for me. Suppose a few will get you wasted.

dmac (5377) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2016
12oz bottle from Spirits LKWD. Poured a clear deep honey gold body with an average sized bright white foamy head. Aroma is sweet breads, dry fruits, alcohol, honey. Flavor is very similar but with a bit more grains upfront that faded to sweeter notes and finishes with alcohol. Syrupy full body with light carbonation and lingering heat on the finish.

vyvvy (5528) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 9, 2016
It pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has apricot, alcohol, caramel and sweetness. It has a medium body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes and quite heavy on the alcohol. Very hot. Not for me.

ElGaucho (2387) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle. Smells like a bock, sweet and strong. Crystal clear Amber. Tastes like it smells, with far more honey evident than Apricot. Sweet and warming. Consumed just below room temp. Delicious.

Tap. I usually like stronger beers, but this one didn’t seem right to me. It tasted like a barleywine and the alcohol covered up most of the apricot flavors I was hoping for. It was there but my taste buds struggled to pick it up.
