Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Allentown. Pours a medium copper with some chill haze and a thinning head. Aroma is medium apricot essence, seems slightly fake, with some doughy toasted malts, wheat character, yeasty phenolics and even a hint of salt? Flavor is more apricot with some pineapple it seemed, crackery dull malts, and light peppery yeasty spicy notes. A slight bit slick.

On tap, Bethlehem. Slightly hazy copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is full of over-ripe apricots. Lighter coriander and some caramel malt. Smells kind of like a fruit smoothie. The flavor is like biting into a fresh apricot in mid-summer, very natural tasting. Estery, with the coriander coming out a bit more on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not clingy at all with a lingering spicy finish. Overall, a pretty damn good for a fruit beer.

On tap at the Bethlehem location. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Yep, aromas and tastes of apricot and coriander/spices.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Draft at Allentown Pours a good amber gold with a white head. Aroma is definetly fruity with the major one being apricot. Flavor was apricot with hints of spicies. Had good carbination and an alright mouthfeel. Light bodied and a decent finish. This is not what I would seek out in a beer but it really was not bad.

TomDecapolis (4470) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 6, 2009
On tap at Bethlehem locaiton. Pours a translucent copper with golden notes and a medium creamy white head that laced. Aroma of light apricot, Belgian yeast esters, bready malt and a touch of the coriander. Flavor of dougy malt, very like corriander and apricot and Belgian yeast spicy notes there as well. Kind of reminds me of a Belgian single ale with just a faint touch of the fruit and spice.

DocLock (7826) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Draft at BBW. Medium goldish pour with very little off-white head. I got a spicy and fruity aroma, with definite apricot and some pale malt. The flavor started spicy, and then the apricot kicked in, all the while retaining a very refreshing quality. Medium to light palate heft.

eaglefan538 (2883) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Hey, I’ll admit it, I liked this one. The appearance was the weakest part, very little head and no lacing. The aroma was spicey, coriander most prominent over the light fruity aroma (although w/o the description, I couldn’t identify apricots specifically). Flavor came across as a witbier with apricots lightly mixed in (again, the fruits didn’t dominate this one). A little more fruity and sweet than the average witbier, but a neat twist on the style. Couldn’t drink as many of these strait on through, like I could wits, but a nice finishing drink.

Pours orange with a thin white head. Smells of coriander and oranges. Taste is initially soappy before mellowing out to reveal the apricot.

alobar (2755) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Not much aroma. Cloudy yellow color. Hint of apricot aroma. Mildly spicy taste from the coriander. Couldn’t really taste the apricot at all. Not a bad beer, but taste was not not pronounced enough.
