12 oz. bottle from Wisconsin. Immediately this one pops a nose of slightly over ripened fruits. Pours a hazy orange amber with a 2 inch frothy head that lasts forever. Something seems to be off here, not sure if it is a bad bottle or what. Mild apricot flavor overpowered by some almost rotten fruit notes. Saving grace is a nice tart finish that if nothing more cleanses the palate of off flavors. Disappointing beer from a usually dependable little brewery.

On tap at Stubbys. Amber with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of apricots, caramel and light spices. Taste of mild apricot, sweet malt, faint noble hops and a sweet and semi-tart finish.

dekester1 (312) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a nice, clear copper/amber with modest head and lacing. Aroma was sweet - malt, apricot and fruitiness. Taste was malty with apricots, light hoppiness and slight sour twinge at the finish. Palate was very good. Overall, a nice smooth fruity brew. Even if you’re not a big fan of apricots, this is worth a try.

Draft. Very light but not too sweet, plenty of apricot and a good dose of light maltiness.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours light golden amber with a thin white head. Nose is floral perfume soap with some grainy malt. Taste is real grainy, rotten fruit, light tartness, and a real off-putting finish. Well-carbonated and biting. There wasn’t much I liked about this beer, but I’d be willing to give it another shot.

Bottle shared by Greg, pours an unclear orange with a white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma really has the apricot come through with a nice amount of sweetness, the flavor has quite a bit of fruit on the front end with a dry finish, kind of different but not bad.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 12oz bottle. Unfiltered hazy orange body, thin creamy white head. Full of pungent, earthy apricot flavor, this is a pretty unique offering. Medium bodied, refreshing, with a really nice apricot depth. Some zesty bite up front, but finishes smooth and easy. Refreshing, tasty beer. Juicy, tangy.
