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.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Was listed as 12%. Pours to a glowing golden body with a crisp white head. Aroma is light apricots. Flavor is more significantly apricots and some light floral hops. Moderate sweetness. Medium body, and surprisingly not syrupy. Doesn’t taste like 12% at all. Very dangerous brew for that reason.

chucklemation (1312) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a pale gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is honey, apricot, and booze. Flavor is sweet, thick honey, apricot, and some booze, though not as noticeable as on the nose. Some carbonation and a thick, full body, honey-like. Wow, this is much bigger than I thought. Pretty good.

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.

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 (5531) - 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.
