(Bottle 35,5 cl) Unusual brew using English top-fermenting yeast and also wheat. And then it’s a fruit beer - I would’ve guessed raspberries, but it turns out to be....apricot!!! Fully golden, unfiltered with a pretty decent head. Pronounced, dry fruit flavours and almost no sweetness. Well, not a complete pleasure.

The essence of this beer is directly in its name. I have very little clue why I like this beer that it might possibly be magical. It has a refreshingly fruity taste with a bold accent of a pure pale ale. Its mysterious and impossible to get in my area, but everytime I am in Brooklyn it is my #1 choice.

Amber, creamy head.
Flavor is also overly perfumed, like in soap, strikes me as artificial, grainy cardboard in backgound.
Not my cup of tea

Bottle: Poured light orange with a big off white head. Had at around 55 degrees. Aroma of apricots and peaches, earthy hops. Flavor is all apricot with same earthy hops. Short finish. I thought this was good. I could drink more of this.

One word, Aprihop. It’s better. Sorry, deal with it. Pours deep gold light amber with a short white head. Aroma of barnyard, yeast, peach skins, light hops, toasted grainy malts. Fruit, peach more than apricot, a little licorice. Green hop bitter, sweet sappy resin. Balanced but not very deep in character. Decent.

On tap at the Mad Raven in Waltham, Mass. Had a nice smoked fruit flavor - sort of like a dry fruit compot taste. Hopped and smooth.

Always a favorite. Nice pale ale with that mystery fruitiness- fig, prune, apricot. Nice hopped finish.
