3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow, white head. A little wheaty, noticible apricot and peach. Pretty fruity overall, the peach and apricot battling for supremacy. Pleasant, but one dimensional with the fruit.

Thanks to Matta for sending this in a fine trade!!!
This looks like a wheat beer when poured. Huge white head, some haziness and a medium yellow color. The aroma is to me more of the Peach than of the Apricot, but it’s a fruitbasket in any case. The flavor is pleasantly fruity with a smooth easy drinking palate. Fruit beers are not my favorite style, but this is not bad. For a fruit beer lover, this would be a gem!!

Strong apricot aroma, light apricot taste. More of an ale than a fruit beer. The base beer is lightly bittered so there’s little to get in the way of the fruit. Decent brew. Thanks, MattA.

Thanks for Matta for trading this bottle to me. If you like Apricots you’ll love this beer. Apricots to me are ok. Poured a cloudy orange color with a pretty good sized head. Tasted and smelled apricots, duh. Had a slight wheat taste to it also. Good summer beer. Something I wouldn’t personally seek out but it was worth the try.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: strong scents of apricots and peaches, flowers, earthiness, and sugars.
Appearance: cloudy yellow, foamy head, floaters.
Flavor: dry, bitterness, smells better than tastes, slight graininess, slight peach/apricot flavors, kind of like a flavored wheat beer.
Palate: very smooth, light, and crisp--good summer beer. Froathy head.

Light yellow and really murky like a hefe or wit. Foamy white head, nose is a spicy belgian-like fruit, actually resembling a flemish sour a little. Flavor is a subtle fruit and lambicesque sourness, with a mild wheat finish. A good summer beer, and big props to Matta for sending this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy straw color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was maybe some wheat with a decent apricot and peach aroma(Duh) Fairly Flat with little to no carbonation.Apricot flavor abouns throughout this brew with a slight hint of peach and very mild hops presence,in fact you almost have to wish them to be there to actually be there.There is a slight wheaty side with a slight tang at the end of the tasting.Not a bad brew at all,in fact it's quite pleasant much more then the Croon's from these people.Definately worth trying again.Thanks go to Envane for sending such a nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours hazy straw, light pink hue, with a soft milky white head. Extreme abundance of carbonation, fairly sticky lacing. Heavy apricot in the nose, perhaps a hint of marmalade. Taste is of light apricots. It seems to finish better, providing a bit more of fruitiness, but not nearly as much as you would think based on the aroma. Medium bodied, decent mouthfeel, light and easy to drink on a hot day. My only real gripe is that it could stand to be a bit more flavorful. Thanks goes out to BierBauch for the trade!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very hazy glowing peachy orange color, fizzy head, some lacing. Aroma is fruit - apricot, melon, peaches - flavor is the same fruits along with a wheat tangy-ness. Soft carbonation, dry finish. Not bad for a fruit beer. (thanks Matta)

pale orange. head disappears quickly. incredible peachy aroma. it's not as sweet as it smells, however. initially a tad sweet, with a dry finish. i wish this were a bit fruitier, but it's good 'nuff. this is a very refreshing, tasty beer.
