Cute packinging hides a really shitty beer. I am baffled by the positive reviews. A bunch of beer snobs?

I enjoy fruit beers, but the flavor of this one didnít adequately mask the medium-high alcohol content. Thereís certainly a bet of ethanol aftertaste, which is a drawback for me. Drinking beer shouldnít at all taste like doing shots in my book.

Color is murky gold, nose is very strong, flavor is distinctive, fruity essence with a distinct flavor, finish is much more subtle than taste for a nice well rounded beer.

Smooth beer with a hint of apricot. There really is nothing like it and itís probably my second favorite Vermont brew next to Long Trail Ale. The first sip kindof suprises you because you donít expect it. Very tasty.

Thick foamy head when poured. Orange fruity taste. Very creamy texture and soft carbonation make it a good beer for a relaxation day.

I usually donít like fruit beer, but I do like this. unlike the unimaginable torcher of miller chill, this really is brewed with the essence. it really is like a pale ale hybrid. some people rightfully canít stand it as it is weird. but itís a weird beer that works.

Bottle. Nice amber color. Sweet fruit flavor. Definately apricot. Not very bold on the hops. Very tasty and refreshing. A great session beer.

Delicious, light and fruity. Wonderful and refreshing as I’ve come to enjoy from all Magic Hat brews. Definite apricot/citrus flavor.

Tap in Columbus, OH. Golden beer, decent white head. Aroma has a hint of the apricots that are described to be in this beer. Flavor very floral with a hint of the apricot. Little malt flavor accompanies the beer. Very smooth going down. To me, this is an example of a well-balanced fruit beer. Too often I taste all fruit or no fruit. This has a pleasant touch of the apricot.

Out of the bottle, it pours a whitish-gold color with a thinner head. It has a metallic-apricot flavor tempered with generous hops. It has a medium-bitter flavor. almost like an IPA/Apricot Ale hybrid. It was interesting and drinkable - probably my favorite in the Magic Hat line. For those that like fruity beers, this is a good one. For those that don’t, well, keep moving.
