This is my first of beer of my next 100 beers. This pale ale was purchased at The caboose in Ashland, VA. The pale ale was thin with little body. The head was white with about one finger. The color was a straw. There was fruitiness and some sweetness. This was just a unremarkable beverage.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 On tap at Taphouse Grill, Norfolk VA, 4/25/06: The bartender couldnít really tell me what style this was, but I tried it anyway. What I got was a mellow yellow-orange beer with a quickly ebbing head. It had a smooth mouthfeel. It was sweet and fruity with an almost berry or apricot essence. But it was underpinned with a light malt goodness. Good warm weather beer.

On tap. Never choose a beer with the word "mysterious" in the first sentence of its description. Disappointing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
What the hell was this? It was easy to realize it was a fruit beer, but everythign beyond that was a toss-up. The body was almost amber with a generoues and rocky head that faded quickly. There was a fruity sweet aroma that reminded me a little of cherries. Odd sweet flavour with more cherries or tart something. I think the appeal of this beer is the fact that it is wildly different, not because it is good.

My god; this was horrible. Admittedly I was too impatient and didnít let this warm up beyond about 42 degrees, so maybe it would have been wonderful warmer, but I almost gagged when I swallowed the first mouthful. I tried one more to see if I could come up with some descriptive terms to use here, but it wasnít worth trying any harder. Fruit? Didnít smell or taste any. Mostly tasted like a bad American Pale Ale to me.

this was pretty good. i might have enjoyed it more if some friends of mine hadnít compared this to the much superior Piece Wingnut (almost an IIPA). nevertheles decent. "a fruit beer" is kinda deceptive too

Pours a yellow color with a quickly diminishing white head. The aroma is pleasing with strong apricot smell dominating everything. Unfortunately the taste starts to border on malternative territory with itís ridiculous sweetness and overbearing apricot flavor. Itís really sort of boring. Itís crazy how much people in the northeast talk about this beer. Itís really not that special.
