Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2008
A golden ale with a thin creamy white head. An initial strong apricot aroma, very pungent, followed by a burned charcoal aroma, like burning wood. In mouth, an oily beer with an initial strong apricot, followed by bitter and clying fruit taste, unripe, green, then followed by the floral IPA hops. Medium bodied. Tasted in late nov. 2006.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle from Lithy, thanks! Orange brown color. Grapefruit, red berries, flowery and oily hops and especially apricot in the aroma. Hopbitter, slightly medecinal yeasty flavor with apricot. Surprisingly dry, oily a touch of malty and fruity sweetness. Plesant brew.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle from Wine Warehouse Charlottesville. Pours a nice amber color with a small head. Good retention and lacing. Not much hoppiness is evident in the aroma, which is mostly the sour side of an apricot. (In a good way). Hops are barely noticeable with the balance of the apricots. Starts sour and then goes sweet. This skews a bit too far away from the hops, but its still pretty tasty.

BeerandBlues2 (11053) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
12-oz. bottle. Pours clean and clear copper with an average sized frothy off-white head, mostly lasting, fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (meal, cereal), average hops (citrus, flowers, grass), average yeast (sweat, dough) with heavy apricot notes. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and a bitter finish. Light sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness; sweaty yeast and apricot fleshy flavor with meal malt notes.

mcberko (10562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours a beautiful golden orange with a beige head. Aroma of apricot and hops in the background. Flavour is a great balance of apricot and pine hops. Very nice.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Odd beer IMO. Orangish pour. Some hops and apricot on the nose with hints of malts. Flavor is hoppy and has notes of apricots and peaches, but not a lot. Ok beer...but not what I expected.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2003 On tap at the brewery. Crystal clear, deep amber ale with an off-white, creamy, lasting head. The aroma is of very light apricot and heavy malt and hops. The flavor is malty, bitter and just the slightest bit apricoty. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Nice, bitter finish. Not your father's fruit beer. Imperial fruit beer perhaps?

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Draught @ FreshCraft. Pours a red maroon body with a small light head. Citrusy and slightly piney hoppy nose with a sweet apricot smell. Initially a creamy pale malty flavor with piney hops that progresses into an apricot-led bittersweetness. Apricots are really most noticeable in the back of the mouth and on the aftertaste. Unlike most fruit beers, the apricot is fairly mild and complementary rather than being dominant. Pretty good.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2009
Cask version at Winking Lizards 1st Annual Real Ale Fest (03/28/09): The beer is a golden amber color with a thin and rocky off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Light apricot and malt in the nose. Medium, clean body with a tart fruity character and flavors of malt and hops. The finish is fruity with a short apricot aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
