Slight malt aroma. Body has a good bit of malt with not much biterness to balance it out. Fair amount of fruitiness, but not overwhelming. A decent brew.

Almost a pale ale in style, lots of different fruits involved in the flavors & aftertaste though too, very well balanced, waited a long time to get my hands on one these guys & I wasn't disappointed, very good brew

Amber. Subtle frutiness. Making a good fruit beer is difficult and I think this does a decent job. Not so sweet, but slightly tart.

Pours with a golden amber body topped by a thin white head with a good amount of lace. Sweet and fruity (raspberries?) aroma with a hoppy background. Sweet and fruity (raspberry?) flavor with a hoppy background and a bitter finish. Light bodied and dry.

Pours the color of clover honey with little head. Nose is very yeasty with bready notes.First sip reveals a truly unusual brew. Light bodied with a big malty presence. Not a lot of hops in here to balance in my opinion. Just plain weird.

This verges on girl-drink (what? that's a COMPLIMENT) in terms of sweetness and refreshingness. I appreciate its secretive apricot splendor.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Sweet, slightly tangy peach flavor dominates and the light-medium body is consistent with the fruit flavor. Occasionally, might enjoy one in the sun, for a change of pace. Not a beer that I like to drink in quantity.

So tasty! Pretty light compared to the other MH brews, but the apricot flavor just makes the beer so enjoyable, any time of the day.

This may be the most refreshing beer that I have ever had. The color is orange/amber and the taste is very balanced between the malt and fruit flavors while finishing somewhat dry. Just an outstanding beer.

White, slightly golden, tightly packed head. The aroma is sweet. There are raspberries in there I think, almost a champagne scent. Hazy, honey-golden color, a little bit of sediment, but really a negligible amount. As the commercial description states, "dry and crisp". Very little carbonation. If you've had New Belgium's Frambozen, this is like that, but instead of a Brown Ale backbone, this has a pale ale spine. Pretty unique and interesting, overall.
