Draft at brewpub. Amber body, slight apricot nose, smallish white head. Apricot is more assertive in the flavor; base beer is pretty neutral.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An 8 year boycott ends. Served in a pint at the CBC. Golden pour with plentiful carbonation. Great aroma! Lots of very noticeable apricot. A light apricot flavor that is slightly sweet with touches of grain. There is no way this is real apricot, but the essence that they use really works well. Medium semi-dry body and mouth feel. Wet finish. Good brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Apricot not too overpowering, more of a golden ale then a fruit beer. Lighly bitter kick on the tail end, good warm weather. Apricot undertones. A little bland.

Served a bright, clear amber with only a wispy film for a head. Fruity aroma with apricot & strawberry. Fruity flavor, not overpowering with a defined wheat base. "Spritzy" due to a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Not a bad fruit beer, but it is a brewpub cop-out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight head. Unbelievable apricot and fruit on the nose with a hint of syrup. Apricot is very bold. A little spice balances it out.

Smells great, taste is a little bit to be desired. Who came up with putting fruit in beer? What’s next, watermellon or mushmellon?

Poured from bottle at local Rest. Pale Golden Copper color...Smelled WONDERFUL like appricots and Peaches. The flavor was the same with maybe a hint of vanilla. I really liked this beer. Very easy to drink and the fruit flavor was not overwhelmingly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft 4 oz sample at the brewpub, 10/23/06: Bright gold with a thin filmy head. Fruity aroma of an apricot grove. But flavor is more musty like a not-quite-ripe piece of fruit. Comes off actually with a sharper bitterness than many fruit-beers.
