Fantastic fruit beer. Compared to most of the apricot beers i’ve had this one was the most flavorful. Usually the apricot beers are wheats and because this one is an ale it is again much more flavorful. Don’t try it if you don’t like apricots lol.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 this is good fruit beer.a slickish candy apricot brew just right for a crowded hot urban night . low carbonation and simple it has a good refreshing quality that is a bit different. unpretentious and real it has a light but noticeable body. goes down good and cold.

(Tap) Pours a light amber color with little head. Aroma of apricot, but not particularly strong. Taste is also slightly fruity, with a good amount of malts to balance it. Light and slightly undercarbonated. It was all right.

Tap. Hazey pour, very fruity, light carbonation, thin head. Not as girly as most Apricot offerings. I enjoyed.

Hazed orange, thin white head. Nose was full blown fresh apricot. Simple as that. Flavor was fruity with notes of black pepper. A light hop bitterness rounds it out to some extent. Light bodied, light carbonation, fruity finish. Drinbable on a hot summer day...

(07.01.06) On tap at the Heartland Brwery, 51st in NYC. Poured clear light amber with small white head. Apricot ester aroma. Soft carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and hoppy apricot flavors. Some bitterness. Apricot flavor has a slight synthetic side. Finished dry with light malt fade. A good decent fruit beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft at brewpub. Lightly hazed orange-amber color in the glass, with a thin white head. Cloying sweet apricot and grainy malt aroma, with hints of citrus noticible as well. Apricot jam in the flavor with some grassiness and floral hops - I experience this as a "chick beer" bordering on an alcohpop. Medium body and creamy carbonation on the palate.

Thanks to my wife and daughter for bringing me a growler back from their recent trip to NYC. I was looking forward to this one but was a bit dissapointed. Instead of being a refreshing summertime beer, it was mostly flat with no head. Perhaps it didn’t survive the 2 hour trip in the heat too well. I’d like to try it againg at the brewpub to compare...
