Can from a friend. Orange color, white head. Bittersweet taste with apricot, citrus, wheat and a bit of malts. Bittersweet finish with apricot, citrus and wheat. Decent brew, but overpowered by apricot aroma.

Pours lighter orange amber with a white head. Aroma is perfect sweet peaches. Flavor brings some lighter bitter malty flavors, not much peach like in the nose, with a nutty peach pit ending.

Draft sample at Falling Rock Tap House. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of frothy eggshell-colored head. Aroma of sugar, vanilla, apricot, and straw. Flavor of apricot, bread, peach, wheat, grains, and caramel. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Good fruit beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Golden orange pour with a small khaki head. Lots of apricot in the aroma, some bready and doughy malts. Malty flavor, more apricot, lingering doughiness. Not bad... I would probably dig this more if I liked apricot.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can in a tulip. Pours amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma of apricots, light malts, some hints of spices, and floral hops. Flavor has a nice blend of everything, but itís not for me. Average texture. Not a fan of this style of fruit beer, but Iíd love to try the sour one.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Falling Rock. Itís easy to say that because this is a "fruity blonde ale" that it should not be rated this highly but this is the best damn fruity blonde ale Iíve ever had. Light-bodied and full flavored, easy drinking with a nice non-cloying sweetness. A great summertime quencher!
