2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unusual fruit beer. Sits very pale without a head. Kinda like M.J. Aroma is very pleasant. Apricots and plums come out in both the aroma and taste. Mildly sweet with light body. The problem is no carbonation to speak of. Leaves a sour finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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 I’m smelling and now tasting isn’t fresh apricots. I’ll be nice and say it’s really, really overripe fruits, and not just apricot, but I’m 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.

Pours to a hazy apricot colored body with a huge white head that’s 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 isn’t really bad. I get raw barley and apricots. There are definite fake aromatics in it. The palate is tingly and carbonated.

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.

On tap at the CBC. Gold color with a thin white head. Thick apricot jam nose. Tastes of oppresive fruit syrup over a light ale. This beer is all about the apricots. Not the nasty artificial flavors that ruin many fruit beers, but still not a compliment to me. There is some home made bread under the jam, but I find the apricot too heavy handed.

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

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.

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.
