This is an interesting brew. I am not a big fan of fruit beers and having said that, this is probably my most favorite. The fruit flavor is well balanced and not sickly sweet. Great label and marketing.

I love this beer!! A summer favorite if I lived on the East Coast. It blows the pants off any apricot brew I have tasted. It is a perfect blend of hop and apricot AND it’s above 5%. A bit yeasty and stronger fruit than malt.

Love the light, refreshing wheat beerish quality. Good citric palate cleansing hops. Fruit is everywhere but not overpowering or sticky. The citric elements brighten the flavor so it takes a bit like a nectarine. Straight up and good with lighter fare and heavier dishes that can use a palate cleanser.

Had it on draft at pizzario uno’s. Tasted pretty good. A little dark with a sweet aftertaste. Overall a good beer would have it again.

Bottled. Cool label, mysteroius name hyped brew; for all that I couldn’t say that I found anything overly impressive. Subtle apricot and other essence though nothing too special.

not much of an aroma, the flavor is slightly sour, there’s nothing special with this beer

I have had this in the past on tap, however the rating was performed on a bottle. Nice pour with golden color. Very dissapointing aroma. Smelled somewhat like yeast, not pleasent. Fruity taste with citrousy overtone. Was pretty lame.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 This is the worst beer i’ve ever had. Forget the mich ultra this is worse...the fruity apricot taste is so overwhelming i cant tell if i’m drinking beer or not. I drank about 3/4 of it and dumped it out, which is sad because I wont even dump out a beat light. I’ll be a happy man if i never have to drink this again. The only redeeming qualities i could find were the witty things written under the cap, and that it felt pretty good in my mouth.

This is the definition of apricot flavor in beer, for those who wonder. Peachy color, clear, but the head doesn’t impress. Light and drinkable but on the bland side. Delicate hops.
