Overwhelming apricot flavor. Probably best drank ice cold, as it warmed it exposed nothing. Not bad, but far from special.

Pour is a honey amber with a white head. Aroma is a nice wheat with a light fruit. Taste is a sweet crisp fruit. Finish is a wash of fruit.

If you like the fruits in your beer this is good. It’s a heavy fruit and not subtle to me. Tap

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Rouses Point Beer Emporium. No idea how old it is.
Appearance: Clear pale yellow/golden with a medium quickly disappearing white head and little lacing.
Aroma: Gummy peaches mostly with light herbal notes and not much else.
Taste: Not very tasty. Mild gummy peach and light wheat acidity. Other than, there isn’t much more.
Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Really watery. Bland finish.
Overall: Very disappointing beer from Ithaca. Aroma is quite artificial despite real fruits being used. Bland and watery.

Pale orange color with a long lasting head. Overpowering apricot aroma and flavor. Kind of like a beer cooler, but it kind of worked.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
For what this is, it’s really good. I am not a fan of these sort of ham fisted fruit brews but this is head and shoulders above most of its ilk--not that that makes for an especially great beer. This is cloudy orange in color with a small white head. This claims to have "just a hint of apricot flavor in the finish" and that may well be true but the nose is fairly well bathed in and dripping with apricot flavor. It is a bit heavy handed but not altogether unpleasant. This is just a touch sweet and really pretty bland except for the apricot flavor. It’s medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation and finishes pretty clean. I’d imagine I could slug a few of these back right from the bottle if I so desired and enjoy them well enough but from a glass the apricot does get to cloy after a while.
