Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
22oz bottle from treyrab, big thanks to Trey as usual. Rating #32. Very clear light amber color. Aroma was big apricots, more like an apricot extract, but pretty good. Flavor was similar, apricot flavoring dominated everything else, sweet and pretty drinkable, not too bad. (1019)

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle Pours a nice clear amber with a fizzy deminishing off white head. Very limited lacing. Has a good aroma of floral, apricots, and a touch of wheat. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is refreshing with good amounts of apricot, and fruit. Has a watery texture. A light body. The finish is good and sweet. The aftertaste is okay. Not a bad beer to share with friends.

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
This beer was really weird, somewhere between a lambic and a wheat beer but leaning more towards a lambic. The 22oz bottle was poured into a wheat beer glass and produced an off-white head that quickly dissipated and a clear light amber body (unlike a true wheat beer which should be more translucent). Sweet apricot dominated the aroma and taste. Very light, much like the other lambic’s I’ve had.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2009
22 oz. bottle; thanks to adrian910ss for the trade; pours clear orange with thin white head; primarily dried apricots on the nose; texture is thin with flavors of soft, dry apricots; some apples and other dried fruit too; also some lemons and stale wheat

bvc (1148) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bomber from suzygreenberg. Pours a slightly murky orangish light brown to golden with little head. Nose is huge on the apricot and then some yeasty wheatness. Very inviting and almost desert like. Light prickly palate with lots of apricot and wheat. Taste pretty nice, but maybe a bit ’artificial’ on the fruit. Enjoyable and I would drink a bomber to myself, but nothing I would seek out. Thanks Ben.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Apricot extract nose. A little tart fruit. Golden pour, no head. Apricot flavors, a little wheat, and mostly apricot. Light and a little fruity. Thanks ben.

unclemike (2214) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Light-medium amber color. Nearly no aroma or head to speak of. Palate is smooth (light on hops), and a distinct apricot flavor rolls over the tongue but is not overbearing. Refreshing, fruity, but not over the top. A very tasty and refreshing fruit beer that certainly does its style justice...I’d recommend it!

Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2009
On draft at Ottos. Pours an orange colour with white head. Aroma of sweet, apricots, honey, wheat, citrus, and hops. Taste is the same as the aroma. Presence of apricot noted throughout. Sweet taste with no bitterness.
