Booooooooooooring.....good beer on draft when there is nothing better available, but not something I would seek out in the store. Smell/taste is peach/strawberry/apricot. Bland stuff.

Pours a very pleasant amber. Spotty head, never quite one fine layer. Smells of orange, hops and caramel. Has a wheat, malty flavor with a speck of hops. Very unique. Almost caramel. Easy to drink a number of. Wouldn’t consider it a top spot.

Pours amber with light head. Aroma is sharp when first poured but fades. Taste is fruity at the start with a bitterness at the end.

Light, just the right carbonation and great taste. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired, though.

Pours copper in colour with a moderate head.
Very strange floral taste with an apricot aftertaste.
I’d say its a fruit beer with IPA tones.
Not a fan but it’s complex taste may well make this someone’s favourite.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very unique beer. Very stong fruity aroma (not sure I’d have pinpointed apricot if I wasn’t aware it was in there). Taste is sweet, with equal parts of fruit and hops. Aftertaste has a slight hoppy flavor, but is dominated by the fruit flavor. Not usually a fan of fruit beers but this one is unique and different. MUCH better draft than bottle.

Great infusion of apricot; crisp, light, slight tartness balanced by flavorful taste of grains.

12oz bottle out of a variety case. Poured a golden yellow with an off white fizzy head. Aroma was fruity, like a mixed bag of grandpas dried fruit. Tasted sweet/sour with apricot notes. Thought it would have been light bodied but its heavier. Pretty nice beer, have had it plenty of times.

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
