3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Ohio Dad for this. The pour was hazy dark copper with 2-finger white head. Nice big apricot aroma, with some perfumy florals, berries, caramel malt. This aroma is outstanding. The flavor was fruity, with a lot of natural apricot flavor, plus a good amount of peaches, some caramel malt, and subdued finishing hops. Medium palate. Well done.

Draft at brewpub. Amber color with a moderate white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Average sweet apricot aroma. Light to medium body. Medium sweet fruity flavor with a short thin finish. Good fruit brew, not my style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly couldy medium orange colored body. The head is thick with a slight off white coloring. The aroma is almost overpowering with the apricots. There is also a little bit of fresh grass. The taste is definitely apricot tart. But there is also some grassy freshness. A little note of lemonbread is in the aftertaste. This is your beer is you like apricots.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours to a hazy apricot colored body with a huge white head thatís foamy and frothy. It spewed all over when I opened it. Was hard to control. It looks quite nice... The aroma is definitely dried apricots and mango with some soapy characteristics. The flavor isnít really bad. I get raw barley and apricots. There are definite fake aromatics in it. The palate is tingly and carbonated.

12oz from OhioDad. Thanks Scott! Pours a cloudy dark yellow orange color with a big rocky/frothy white head. Aroma is light hopps and some apricot and sugar. Taste is fruity, apricot, some mixed citrusy notes, a bit of malt and some sugar. Not overly powering like some fruit beers, a decent mixture actually

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with OhioDad, thanks Scott!) I was very impressed with this beer when I poured it and took my first whiff. Mmm, fresh apricots! But ahh, the power of suggestion. Taking a sip, it has quickly come to me that what Iím smelling and now tasting isnít fresh apricots. Iíll be nice and say itís really, really overripe fruits, and not just apricot, but Iím actually getting a lot more mango here. The beer is somewhat grainy and fairly sweet, but not overly so, and bitterness is light. Medium bodied. The body is bright orange and quite cloudy in appearance. A tall, off-white head nearly overflowed the glass on the pour, but has slowly settled to a wide ring. Only a few splotches of lace stick to the glass. Next time, they should use fresh fruits rather than scour the orchard grounds for fly-infested fruit that fell off the tree.

light orange cloudy color huge foamy white head well laced. Smells terrible like dried appricots sugar and shit. Palate is thin and highly fizzy. Sweet apricot and stale water flavor. This stuff is bad.

Bottle via trade with OhioDad, thanks Scott. Pours golden clean amber/ruby with tiny fast rising bubbles and a tall creamy/rocky off-white head, mostly lasting with some good thick spotty lacing. Huge fresh apricot aroma, some candy/syrupy notes, and lightly roasted caramel malt (cookie) and yeast (dough, oak). Chalky lightly acidic sour yeast and tart apricot flavor, malty nutty body. Medium bodied, clean and refreshing palate.
