Only Jamesport beer Iíve ever had. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a slight hazy orange to slight burnt brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Light lacing was there. The smell had a light grainy apricot to wheat breadiness going on. The taste was exactly the same. On the palate,this one sat about a light to medium in body. Thereís a light sessionability about this one. Overall, good beer worthy of having again.

Draft. Apricot and lemon wheat malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with minimal head. Tart apricot and wheat malt flavor. Nice balance. A very nice fruit beer.

Flight draft in Ludington. Hazey yellow-orange color with a white ring. Dusty fruit aroma. Nice peachy flavor mixed with the wheat. Pleasant.

5 oz. sample on 5-20-12 (Flight 1)- served a nontransparent, appearing very much like unfiltered freshly made oj. Slight nose of apricots up front. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is buried by apricots, but itís alright in this case. Went down way to easy...

Had this one on draught as part of the sampler at the brewpub in Ludington, Michigan. Cloudy medium yellow pour with some flowery hoppiness, very fruity, pronounced apricot and peach with some apple sweetness, clean finish. Good.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2005
Draft at brewpub. Hazy golden amber hue with a small white head that diminished slowly. Sweet wheat and apricot aroma. Full apricot flavor with a good wheat finish. Took a growler with me.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Sampled at the brewery. Not much aroma, just a slight hint of wheatish malt. Cloudy straw yellow with a very thin white head. Wow, candy-like peach or apricot flavor. Medicinal, caugh syrup finish. Thin body, water dry finish.

BigNasty (55) - South Lyon, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Sample at brewery and growler fill. Cloudy yellow and thin head. Wonderful apricot and hop aroma, which does a pretty good job of indicating the overall flavor as well. As others have indicated, the apricot, while assertive, isnít sickly sweet or cloying. Will glady return to Ludington for another growler fill of this.

hoppygrrrl (104) - Albion, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Nice foam floating on pretty lemony-orange hues. Creamy palate. At least the apricot flavor is bitter, not sickly sweet, and seems relatively authentic. In all, nice flavor, zingy finish. Good.

So hereís the thing. Iíve carried a ferocious anti-fruit beer chip on my shoulder for a long time but recently have had some decent fruit brews and have to wonder. Either my palate has been broadened with experience or the breweries have figured out how to actually fold fruit into the process more adeptly. In any event, I find this brew to be beautifully apricot - not so much that cloying cheap artificialty sends me raging into that good barbaric night that damned so many fruit beers heretofore, and not so little that it seems only a whispered afterthought. No, there is apricot AND some malty substance both to this brew and if I wish for more hop balance it is still in recognition of what is, after all, there.
