Just not my kind of thing. Definitely a very interesting, funky blend. It seems to be the beer version of Lucky Number 6 (the male fragrance). Not that it tastes similar to the smell (hehe), but that it’s flavors are equally difficult to describe and equally tries to come off as being elusive/mysterious.
Lots of citrus, a bit of a ginger-like bite to it, but the malt flavor isn’t lost.
Hard to forget. Not disgusting at all, but not something I would ever buy 6 of.

Good nose. Rich body and pour. Hoppy flavor with malt aftertaste. Overall a great beer.

On draft at local bar. Great fruity apricot nose. Nice color and carbonation, slight hazy appearance. Beautiful head. I really love the flavor in this beer, the apricot/peach fruitiness goes really well with the grainy malt taste. Hopped just enough to let you know its there.

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

I love this beer. It's just light enough with just the right amount of flavor. The aroma is worth a moment's savoring. In bottles it is good, but on tap it's great and has a bit more aroma.

Drinking one of these is a good idea. The apricot is not overbearing and makes for a yummy, crisp beer. After about three of these, however, the apricot flavor gets old.

Very fruity beer. Good mix of flavors, hard to pick out an individual flavor. Might be overstated. Great initial taste though. After taste is a little tainted.

Out of a bottle. Nice aroma, good look, however, half way through it , I was ready for something else.

Pale Ale meets Shorts Brewing Soft Parade?
Ap - Poured a very clear golden amber. No head and little lacing.
Ar- A complex fruit smell, nothing like I was expecting from a pale ale.
F - Hops were very light and were largely hidden by the fruit. I thought I tasted raspberry in there but I did not see that on other reviews. Maybe a little strawberry also. Overall a decent, and surprising, taste.
P / O - Although I liked this beer I could not drink that many. It would be something I may order again, especially outside on a hot day.
