UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 #100. Draft at the brewery, the only place you can get it so far. Poured a dark orange witha nice white head. Extremely cloudy, light cant penetrate through it. Aroma of fresh apricots. Tasted like fresh apricots as well, with a slight tartness in the backround, very nice. A nice drinker for the summer, but at 7.1% can sneak up on you. real good beer.

growler thanks to Hophead22, pours light orange with a thin white head. Looks just like orange juice in the glass. Aroma is wet grass, wheat, oats and of course, apricots. Faint notes of alcohol as well. Flavor is very nice, this is creamy as hell, pale malts, sweet wheat and apricot with a mild tartness in the vein of orange peel in the finish with not a trace of the boozy aroma. This is delicious stuff, light and delicate but with tons of good flavors going on and would be very nice in the morning or served with a brunch.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film.

The palate is medium with lively carbonation. Finishes long with lingering apricots and a bit of metallic aftertaste. Overall: Very tasty apricot brew.
