Pours amber with a white head. Smells of reaberries and cherries. Tastes citrussy with some nice fruity undertones. Great session beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marigold orange clear body with medium offwhite head that laces and sticks to the glass. Instant aroma of apricots and a hint of caramel. Light flavor of apricot and hop. Kind of weak compared to the aroma. Thin palate with a refreshing, lingering apricot finish. The Dogfhish Head Aprihop is a better choice.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank it about a million times, and now am finally rating it. Pours out a straw color with a fruity aroma. The taste isn’t overlly complex, just notes of apricot and sweet malt, agree with previous raters that it needs a kick on the hop end of things, Dogfish’s aprihop is a much better choice

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear copper with a small off-white head. Very faint aroma of light fruit. Flavor has notes of raspberries, strawberries and some caramel. Ends watery with no aftertaste. Moderately sweet, no bitterness detected. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Drinkable but extremely boring.
