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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
