Like fruity beers? This is about as fruity as they come! A smooth mild pale ale with very light hop aroma. I don’t particularly like fruit in my beers especially apricots,... especially when you taste that above all else. The taste tired my toungue.

Way too fruity for my palate, interesting but wouldn’t purchase. I really do not like it due to sickening sweetness. In all fairness though, a well produced beer, but very weird taste, tastes like going camping i.e: very fruity and herbal with an almost raspberry aftertaste. Good beer if you want to get in touch with nature. Others try before you buy. Completely one of a kind though.

Amber, creamy head.
Flavor is also overly perfumed, like in soap, strikes me as artificial, grainy cardboard in backgound.
Not my cup of tea

Nothing special here. Aroma was grassy, maybe scallions, clovers... you know,all that grass crap. Taste was not much different: grass with a touch of bitterness. Not seeing this apricot that people mentioned. The taste faded quickly as the skim-milk like thinness had the beer go down rather quickly as well. Certainly not an offensive beer, and I could definitely drink it leisurly, but you can also do much better.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting bubbles. The body contained very soft carbonation, was transparent and yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild floral malts. Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild fruity apricot bitter hoppy notes.

Had at the Rohrbach’s summer brew fest. Berries in the nose, straw color, malt and hops in the palate and a dry finish. One of the less impressive fruit beers of the day.

Ginger ale gold with orange and brass tinting. Head is buttercream/white and a solid 3/4 inch thick from a hard pour. Smell is non-descript fruit malt, decently rich, with some sourness and a bit of cheap lager taint stirring around the edges. Taste is a bit thin/watery and as advertised, weird. Wheat, berries, pit fruit, and dry pine needle hops roll over the palate. Wet grass, wheat lay the base for the aftertaste, followed by a very dry, sodawater finish. Because I really have no clue what style this is susposed to be, I don’t know if I’m being overly or less harsh than I should be about the thinness of this beer. This could be a lot better, I think.

bottle-plurs an apricot hue with a nice soapy white head and good lacing. aroma of metallic fruits-berries and grains with a light diacytl butter note. flavors of highly grainy with light fruity notes and sunflower seeds. slightly oily body that was thin with moderate carbonation, which i thought would be higher than it was. This is not very good, but thanks to hopdog for the try.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 ~~Org. Ar.6 Ap.3 Fl. 6 Pa. 3 O.I.14 = T.S. 3.2. ~~ had this on tap at some Fox Sport bar in an airport in PA. The only thing move vauge than that is prob. my rating. As I was already feeling swell, I ordered based on Tap designs.... the cool 9 did it. Anyway, I didn’t get much fruit out of it. Seemed rather an average ale, with little malts and an easy hop linger... too easy. I thought it was an American Strong Ale? or something like that.... but whatever, it was only ok. -
---- Now looking back... very average... no fruit. Nasty cheap pale. Not too impressed. Lowered Score to present 2.6... damn. 12/ 28/ 06.
