Eck...this is just a plain ’ol ale. Apricot is *barely* discernable and is present as a fruity note without any particular apricot-ness. Sourness pervades the brew. Not a good drink.

I’ve said it before in reviews and I’ll say it again: I have a support shop put for fit beers. This one is no exception. Some wheat flavor, but it is mostly the mild citrus of a summer apricot. A little sweet finish and it vanishes from your mouth. Ok, but forgettable.

gyllenbock (4091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at Heartland Brewery and Chophouse - 43rd St, August 2012. A bit hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma and taste of apricot, malt and some light sour notes. Light mouth feel. Drinkable but a bit stale.

saxo (13458) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2012
Tap @ Heartland 43rd st. Nice head with good duration. Color is hazy amber. Aroma and taste are quite sweet with lots of apricot, notes of soap, wheat malt and hops.

petexner (854) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 24, 2011
Draft @ HB near Rockeffeler Centre. Actually I loved that brew. Fresh, fruity, smooth, nice taste and palate. Ideal summer special.

stouby (3510) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2011
Draught at Radio City. Clear dark golden with a beige head, nice lacings. Aroma moderate malty, caramel, heavy apricot. Flavor heavy sweet, light bitter/acidic. Medium body. Out of balance.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft: Poured a clear light orangey color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention. Aroma of light apricot and lightly sweet malt base is OK at best. Taste is dominated by light apricot ester with a lightly sweet non-descript malt bill. Body is average with medium carbonation. This one was a non-memorable fruit beer.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
On tap at Heartland ESB, Manhattan NY on 26th July 2011. Orange body and a fair amount of mostly diminishing off-white foam. Heavy lemon and apricot scents. Sweet and acidic initial flavour in-mouth, sour lemon and apricots in finish. Medium body, and lively carbonation texture. Enjoyed as a novelty and rated as such.
