When I had this it was in and out of the fridge a few times, which I am sure did it no justice, so I will be trying again. But it has very nice peachy/apricot flavors with some spicy, wheatiness to it. Full flavor, even enjoyable when barely cold.

Clear orange, with a white quick head and apricot and hops nose, reminding me of Lindeman’s Peach Lambic. Dominant apricot flavor with underlying wheat accompany the sweet, slightly tart taste. Throughout, there is an artificial characteristic I just couldn’t get used to. Good.

I enjoy fruit beers, but the flavor of this one didn’t adequately mask the medium-high alcohol content. There’s certainly a bet of ethanol aftertaste, which is a drawback for me. Drinking beer shouldn’t at all taste like doing shots in my book.

I’m not a big fan of fruit beers. This is done well, however; it could have been cloying. Still, it’s only an occasional thing to do for me, like once a yr.

Crisp and sharp with a slight apricot fruitiness. The wheat malt helps keep it tempered and in the background. An awesome light beer and original to say the least.

It might be easy to be put off by this beer’s exceptionally thin body at first, but once the flavors set it, this becomes less of a concern. A moderately hopped beer which emphasizes its fruity characteristics more than anything else. In fact, I wasn’t aware this was flavored with apricot initially, as I had it on tap; however I was able to pick up on its subtle tones. A great ale for the summertime.
