The aroma was bountiful amounts of apricot and hints of other fruit. The appearance is similar to an apricot because of its slightly amber and orange characteristics. The head is white, small, but dense. It tastes sweet and slightly malty. It has an average carbonation with a light body and a quick finish. Overall, it is a great summer beer that went well with the pizza and environment; - very refreshing.

Draft at brothers downtown Denver. Pours a light tan color with no head. Very fruity off the bat but not super sweet. Ok

12 oz can purchased at Antler’s in Frisco, Colorado. The pour is a very hazed golden orange with a 1/2 inch well formed white head. The aroma is fresh apricot, sweet, and softly tart fruit. The taste is the apricot fruit, very fresh and natural, tartness of apricot skin all on top of clean softly sweet straw malt. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a clean finish. Tasty refreshing beer.

scoth (506) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours cloudy orange, with a thin diminishing white head, fine lacing. Strong apricot aroma with just a hint of biscuit. Light body, velvety smooth. Medium sweet, a hint of tartness, very little bitter finish. Very drinkable, not overly sweet, a bit one-dimensional but well done.

Vivid deep gold, cloudy. Very little head. Smells like apricot preserves. Taste- musty, wheaty, sweet apricot and not a lot else. Taste is great. Good level of carbonation. Thin texture. Good balance of refreshing and sweet. Very comparable to the Pyramid Apricot ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear apricot aroma. Sweet, fruity and malty. Also most like a sprite peach in flavor but much smoother.

Nice summer beer. Hazy golden. Apricot and orange pretty much take over. Tad sweet, with not much tart or bitter to balance. Still super refreshing.

4 oz at HighPlainsTap. Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma has a very nice apricot smell. Perhaps a slight citrus from hops. First sip was more like fruit juice than beer, but not in a bad way. Second sip more of the same...finishes fairly dry so not overly sweet. A nice refreshing drink that would be a good summer beer with fish or chicken. Surprised to see it is 5.3%

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
12oz can poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a hazy yellowish orange with very light carbonation and a thin ring for a head. Aroma is a deep apricot scent. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is sweet giving mellow apricot up front and just a hint of white pepper in the back. After taste is clean with a note of the fruit hanging on. Overall its a tasty, refreshing and easy drinking summertime brew.
