3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 The Magic Hat flagship brew, as far as I’m concerned. A pseudo-complex taste that truly escapes description. Dry, sweet apricot comes close. You could savor this beer or session it. I recommend the latter. Buy a case and get after it. Cheers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light copper body with quickly vanishing white head. Aroma is earthy hoppy, somewhat sweet, some apricot fruitiness. Taste is light -- moderately sweet apricot that’s tempered by some mild earthy hoppiness. Somewhat sticky on the palate, detracting from its summer-beer feeling.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: #9 is a cloudy light amber color with a fluffy white head that doesn’t leave much, if any, lacing in the glass.
S: The smell is incredibly sweet, and not necessarily in a good way. A lot of artificial fruit smell, mostly apricot.
T: The taste is all fake, sugary, candy-sweet apricot. There are probably some other flavors in there, but the aforementioned "quality" is just overbearing.
M: The mouthfeel is surprisingly decent. The body is medium and there is moderate carbonation.
D: This is one of the least drinkable beers I’ve ever had. It’s just so sickeningly sweet that I tried mixing a bit of Stone IPA in it to make it a bit more palatable. I finally just gave up and drank the IPA instead.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours clear copper with a decent finely bubbled head. Nose is largely apricot. Love that. There’s a bit of sour pit like aroma too. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor seems perfumey nectarine and apricot. It’s lightly sweet, but that’s more than balanced by the pit suck bitter character in the finish. My. Yes, mine. Tasty.
Re-rate: Sticking with the original.
