COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing and delightful ale with the subtle flavor and aroma of apricots. A wonderful change from the ordinary. This is not a sweet fruit beer.

Poured into a pint glass. 2.0 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of fizzy white head that falls super fast and leaves just a whisp or two of lacing. 3.0 S: Smells of moderate apricot and a light graininess underneath. Not much else going on. Fortunately, the apricot is powerful enough for the nose on this to be sufficiently decent. 2.0 T: Unlike the nose, the apricot in the taste fails to even achieve half-assdom. That coupled with the lack of anything interesting underneath, puts this at the level of shitty fruit beer. Clean, weak, and boring. 2.0 M: Lighter body. There’s way too much carbonation. Indeed, this is easily BMC level. No creaminess and the carbonation makes this hard to put down easily. 2.0 D: We’ve all seen this plenty of times with fruit beers, so I doubt I’d need to explain why this beer sucks much. I was super pissed to find that this was the mystery beer in my mixed twelve pack. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-01-2012 03:37:02

On tap at the brewery. Pours gold with a creamy off white head. Aromas of pale malt and apricot. Light bodied, refreshing, fruity. Faint bitterness on the finish. I enjoyed this beer, refreshing with a nice apricot presence without being overdone, a pretty solid summer beer.

Twelve oz. bottle, 10.03.09. Pours cloudy gold, white head. Aroma is apricot and malt. Flavor is malty, hoppy, apricot. On the bland side but at least this isn’t offensive.

Haslinger (865) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2009
On tap at Middle Ages brewery. Decent mildly fruity aroma. Very sweet apricot taste. Sweet but not artificial tasting. Too sweet for my liking but a very solid fruit beer for sure

[2349-20090731] Tap. Fruity apricots aroma. Lightly hazy, light brown body with quick creamy off-white head. Lots of sweet apricot and fruit flavour. Medium body. Nice and refreshing, judging from the ratings here it looks like it may have improved slightly.

2009-07-31. Golden body with a modest white head. Aroma is very fruity, apricots, touch of yeast. Flavour is similar, muted malt is overshadowed by dominant fruit, apricots. Very light bitterness. Average palate. Okay, I am not particularly an apricot beer fan. On tap at the brewery

Traffic-light amber color. Ivory head disappears quickly. Clear and watery. The sweet fruity apricot smell is balanced by a bready, wheat-like yeast. The fruit smells fresh and not saccharine. Excellent for style. The taste is an excellent handshake between the slightly sour and sweet apricot, and the bready, estery yeast. The balance is crucial and keeps this beer from tipping toward saccharine. A nice, solid brew. The feel is thick but smooth. The yeast adds a necessary dryness. It’s a solid fruit beer. Balance is the key, and the sweet/dry sides make it repeatable.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Apricot juice is fizz. Nothing really going on here.

Golden color with big fizzy head. Light apricot aroma. Taste is very much apricot with other sweet candy flavors. Not bad for what it is, but not all that good as a beer. Drinkable, but nothing like Dogfish Head’s Aprihop for instance.......

Hazy light golden hue with white head. There is not much fruitiness in the aroma. Marginal apricot flavour. Generaly I’m dissapointed in fuit beers they are either too sweet or too poor to even notice. However this is better then others I have had.
