Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pours coppery amber with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has fresh apricot, quite dry, grapefruit, red apple and pine. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good fruity tartness at first, apricots aplenty, oranges. Nice caramel and doughy malts. Good dryish and lingering bitterness. Very fresh. I like.

HIGHB4LL (475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
finger white head that does not last, soapy bubbles, amber-copper color, clear, slight lacing. Aroma: citrus, apricot, floral, caramel, resin. Palate: medium body, bitter lasting finish, sticky texture, average carbonation to lively, dry finish. Taste: super complex, sweet malt pushes through, with a building apricot fruity sweetness underneath, giving way to a nice hoppy bitter finish. Overall, taste balance on this beer is amazing, usually not a fan of apricot beers, but this is the best I have ever had.

paintedmaple (395) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a beautiful bright copper with some white lacing. Nice apricot aroma with some fresh hops; the first sip is fruity sweetness that finishes with a bitter kick. Complex and refreshing...well done.

closey22 (847) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Dark amber orange with foamy lacy beige head; aroma is hoppy with cedary notes and some hints of sweet fruit; Flava upfront is strange at first: hop bitter, peatyish funk and some notes of tangy tart fruit; feels light with fizzy bite; finishes dry very bitter with notes of soap

kramer (4894) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded pretty quickly. The aroma is a mix of apricot, leafy floral hops, and slightly sweet caramel malt. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the fruit and the hops, with the fruit winning out a by a bit. Finishes on the sweeter side with some caramel and toasty malt. Some lingering apricot notes. Medium bodied, rather sturdy malt backbone with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not a favorite from their lineup, but it was nice to revisit it after not having it in years.

Pours a clear golden color with light white head. Apricots, light fruit, and some floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more apricot notes.

nice lite bronze color and a clean apricot/peach aroma..very natural fruit taste,extremely refreshing. the mouthfeel is light to medium..the hoppiness is there,but well balanced with the apricot flavor.great hot weather sipping beer.be careful of the 7% alc. content.you can throw this down very quickly and be drunk very soon.

From the 2014 batch 12 fl. oz. bottle. Ah ha! I thought this was a new beer but it just a new label. The pour is an attractive looking medium mahogany amber with a cream colored head that holds its own for some time. The apricots are there but not as present on the nose as the caramel malts and earthy hops. This is the way I like my fruit beers to smell. The body is smooth and around medium. The taste has a good roasted malt character with a solid bitterness and the apricots are more like window dressing.
