3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold to amber body with a large growth of bubbles sticking to the side of the glass. White ring around the glass trying to pass itself off as a head. Very pungent nose with an aroma of a cheap chardonnay. This beer does have a smooth texture that slides down the throat. Flavor of apricot with a lasting bitterness on the palate. Trying too hard to differentiate itself from others.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2003 GOlden/yellow/amber hue. Interesting aromas of wheat, apricot, bread, yeast. Sweet first, light to medium bodied, nice carbonation. Kinda an american wheat, fruit beer, american pale, all in one. Nice apricot finish, crisp and refreshing. Well balanced. Not a bad brew, but nothing spectacular.

One of the few fruity beers I will actually drink. Good, refreshing summer beer with definitive apricot aftertaste.

Obvious fruits--what’s more to say--like it or leave it. Watery consistency, but depth of flavors such as strawberry, raspberry, watermelon. Plain appearance. (on tap, Whisky’s, Boston)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 26, 2003 The apricot flavor adds just enough fruitiness to enhance the overall taste. One of the few fruit beers I think successfully pulls it off. Strawberry blonde coloring. Very nice for the warmer weather, but yet the aroma and the finish are a little too sour for my taste. It's not as good as I orginally thought, but it gets points for being interesting.

First notice the rediculously huge apricot aroma that spreads through the air. Sligthly less apricot in the flavor. The pale ale background is so subdued by apricot that i cant really sense much hop character besides som bitterness and malt tones are masked as well. I very different beer. More of a beer for the women, I think.

Eventhough my rating is not glowing, I think this is worth a try. I am not a big fan of fruit beers, but this is an interesting one. It is not overly artificial tasting. I think if they used more hops (for both bittering and aroma) this could be good.

I enjoyed this beer, a good beer to drink after trying to pound a pick axe through N Carolina clay in order to get some grass to grow
