UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 # Yuck! I feel a real fruit beer should contain real fruit, not the flavoring. This beer taste like a light hop free ale with a Jolly Rancher thrown in the fermenter.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 Light, bubbly nose with no hint of. . .anything until the body, which is extremely light and tasteless. I had to stretch to pretend i tasted some apricot. This could be one of the most tasteless yet inoffensive beers. Reminded me much like a cool tasty glass of spring water.

Strong apricot aroma and flavour. Thin white fully diminishing head on hazy straw body. Medium body. I find the fruit flavour to be artificial and cloyingly sweet. Although I do generally like the output of this brewery, I'm not a big fan of this offering. On tap at the brewey and bottled.

Bottle: Impossible to describe!? There are at least 477 ratings that say otherwise. Overall: plain, simple, some fruity taste. That´s it.

This "fruit beer," which it is not truely at all, is rather lousy. In most pubs this beer is sold as a lager or a brown ale. From the moment it touches one’s tongue, an immediate spalsh of perfume is noted. The uninformed novice may understand that scent/taste to be "fruitiness." I fouthrightly disagree. The odors and flavors are much more flowery than fruity. I would imagine a better flavor could be attained from drinking old rose water from a vase. This beer leaves a soapy coating on the roof of the taster’s mouth as well. Overall, considering the pricetag on a pint of this in Philadelphia is over five dollars, this is a beer to avoid.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2009 2008-09-06, Draught at R.F.D., Washington DC, as Not Quite Pale Ale, 4-3-4-2-7=20
Deep blond color. A poor Ale, with soft corners and some baking yeast character, maybe a light fruit touch too.

Amber color; big head. Some malt flavor with a gentle fruitness; the aroma as well shows some redberry touch. Quite bitter at the end. Drinkable.

reminds me of rolling rock and bud select mixed together. I think the taste i get most is peach and its not that good. Not that its a bad beer but its just not a top-of-the-line brew. Has a very lingering gross fruity aftertaste.

Looks like apricot juice with a smallish white head. Hey it smells like apricots too! What do ya know, it tastes just like apricots! One dimensional and overall it’s simply boring. This lacks both freshness and depth.
