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.

[2/20/15] Draught at Ballast Point Old Grove in San Diego. As Barmy Ale. Clear orange. Aroma of apricots, a bit of honey and alcohol. Sweet and slightly sourish flavor with honey, caramel, apricots and alcohol. Medium-bodied. Decent but too boozy.

"This version coming in at a whopping 12.4% and done well! Is it beer? Is it mead? Not too sweet, but the fruit and honey are front and center for sure. Smooth, tasty, and unique."

A malty aroma dominates. The flavor is strange, sweet malt to start with a syrupy apricot sweetness to follow. The finish is sweet and sticky. Lots of alcohol on the throat.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 19.06.2013, tap @ The Ginger Man NY:
Almost no head. Aroma is kind of neutral, fruity artificial strawberry like, grass, heather, alcohol. Taste is slightly harsh grassy and fruity, heather, grass, strawberries maybe, alcohol, hay. Medium bitterness and dry mouthfeel. Not a beer for me!

Hoooly moly. This supposed to be 10.7? No way. This an odd mix of fruit forward to medicinal. Medium bodied. Crisp. This thing is dangerous.

Poured from the tap a clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma was low but mostly citrus and apricot. Flavor was much less fruity than I expected but still had notes of the apricot and sweet malt caramel. Finish was sweeter with plenty of fruit flavors. One of the best apricot beers I’ve had.
