bottle. interesting fruit beer. pours a golden, amber, orangish color with almost no head. clear and watery looking with little carbonation. smelled of apricots. tasted sweet with slight citrusy hoppiness and definite apricot flavor coming through. interesting and refreshing. i wanted more hoppiness out of this one though. something a slightly more bitter.

Nothing special here. Aroma was grassy, maybe scallions, clovers... you know,all that grass crap. Taste was not much different: grass with a touch of bitterness. Not seeing this apricot that people mentioned. The taste faded quickly as the skim-milk like thinness had the beer go down rather quickly as well. Certainly not an offensive beer, and I could definitely drink it leisurly, but you can also do much better.

Out of a bottle,thanks rich again almost done with the starters. A nice waffting smell of apricots eminates throught the clean golden mixture with a nice white head. The taste is interesting, a swirling mix of sweetness, apricot,pear and a slight presence of hops. Reminded me of a good woman. I liked it overall. Tasty

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Good beer. Sampled this at Coventry. Very refreshing, could drink 10 of these on a hot day. Has a nice hoppy undertone with apricot citrus accents. Not very sweet, which is why I liked it. Nice crisp hoppy aftertaste. Good sipping or pounding.
I changed my mind. This is pretty bad.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Not a bad beer at all, a little weak for my liking, but very drinkable, good aroma and different taste, probably my favorite from the magic hat brewery

Pours a dark honey color with a white head. Laces nicely. Now, on to the curious aroma and flavor. It’s aroma has a strong nutmeg presence, or is that what I’m confusing for the apricots?...not a big fan of it. Is this beer or egg nog...lol. It tastes like nutmeg, too....in the finish. If you love the nog....maybe this is for you.

Very satisfactory beer. Basically a sub par pale with a weak fruit taste that does not add much to the beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 12oz bottle.
Pours a crytal clear pale gold. Small head with lots of carbonation. Sparkling tiny bubbles.
Sweet pear aromas and a bitter dry smell as well.
Definitely dry but also kind of skunky. Don’t enjoy the fruity body at all. Light hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and dry. Not an enjoyable brew in total. Interesting dryness for a fruit beer but for me, I do not get the appeal of this beer.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2005 A good brew that I could have a few of, but after a while the spicy, citrus funk gets to you. I like the fruit content in this brew. This is a good brew from the folks at magic hat, but not their best.

Its always interesting to see what will be under your cap with Magic Hats brews. This poured out a clear orange with a decent sized off white head on top. The head dies quickly leaving a slight lacing around the glass. Aroma is sweet with malt with a touch of fruit and an odd smell that I couldn’t recognize. Taste is similar with a malt sweetness standing out the most over slight fruit notes and an odd taste matching the smell. Overall this is a very mild brew that is a bit odd but I can’t place my finger on what it is. Mouthfeel is a little watery. Ok drinkability, but not something I could have many of or something I would have very often.
