Not syrupy sweet like most fruit beers, this is for beer drinkers! Just a hint of apricot gives this delicious medium-bodied ale a wonderful aroma and a unique finish. Try it! Available on draft and in bottles.

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

Gee, thanks Blake :) . Pours a slighlty hazy orange color, huge white head. Aroma is of dried up apricots, and rotten grass. Flavor is acidic, apricots, wheat, sour body, not much here to enjoy.

Decent fruit beer. Apricot is subtle in the taste but prevails in the nose. Smooth, golden ale.

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.

Had this at the Brewpub as my appetizer. Nose of citrus & pine. Light apricot tones are present also. Light sparkling golden amber. The thin white frothy head is quickly diminishing with light lacing. The brew starts spicy with a heavy acidic middle and a toasty apricot finish. The medium creamy and lively body feels slightly cloying at the finish. A very good fruit beer.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2004 Pours amber with a small, white head that is fairly easily resurrected with a quick swirl. Very nice aroma with the apricot; not at all fakey; full and fruity. Flavor is also apricot but not artificial or overdone; hoppy finish. Average mouthfeel. As fruit beers go, this is probably my favorite. As the description states, this is more of a fruit beer for beer drinkers. Not bad as fruit beers go.

margarine yellow, brassy as a new trombone, head shows obligatory white top, neither slacking off nor doing back-flips to impress. light fruity sweetness of caramel is enhanced with some apricot-- no rocket science here. i use ’apricot’ as a discriptor fairly often to articulate various dark fruity malt aromas, so, in theory, it’s not a bad fruit to use deliberately as an agent of flavoring. good carbonation, sweetness and bitterness all crowd on the front seat and don’t bicker. the echo of hops was pleasant, as was my surprise with this modest, quenching beer.

Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass it produced a finger worth of white head that settled to a thin lace. The body of the brew was a apricot color how appropriate. It had aroma of apricot and flavors of apricot that’s about it for this brew. Oh ya good carbonation and light in the mouth. Now I am not to keen on extract added fruit craft beers. Use the real thing brewers please it is much better, and more in the sprit of a craft product. Ok enough of a rant Serving type: bottle
