UPDATED: JAN 5, 2011 One of the best fruit beers out there. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a rich golden color with a small white head. The aroma was robustly sweet and tangy apricot. The flavor was strong, sweet and juicy fresh apricot with a light wheaty malt undertone. This is a great fruit beer that still tastes like "beer" yet has a strong "real" fruit flavor. Not too sweet.

Very mellow but noticeable apricot flavor. Actually tasted more like beer than cough syrup like other fruit beers.

For a fruit beer, this was great. Sweet and refreshing apricot flavor was very noticeable, but did not overtake the fact that this is BEER. Some hops and wheat flavors present, nicely balanced.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draught at the brewery. Slightly hazy yellow and orange color. Lightly sour orange and grapefruit rind scents. Flavor is similar, with a light tartness present which is particularily nice. Has some light apricot rind and wheat flavors throughout, though stronger and more pronounced in the finish. Lightly tart, lightly biting on the tongue. OK overall, a bit pale and lacking depth, but drinkable, and thankfully not overwhelmed with cheap fruit flavors like so many other fruit beers.

Lite apricot overtone. Balanced bitter hops thru out the ale. Decent wheat ale but not one of my favorites from ottoís (They have too many to choose from!)

Not a big fruit beer fan, but this isnít bad on their patio on a summer afternoon. The apricot flavor is there, but not as dominating as you might expect, itís more there for support. Otherwise itís nicely balanced, fairly light in general, but refreshing.

Growler. 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...Iíd recommend it!

I usually dont like these type of fruit beers, but this is an exception. Pours very light gold/orange with a slight haze and good head retention. Aroma and flavor are loaded with real apricot which gives the impression of biting into a fresh ripe apricot on every sip. Good wheat smoothness all the way through. Very well made.

Dark golden color with a small off white head and nice lacing. Authentic apricot aroma. Smooth wheathy and apricot taste. A delightful fruit beer. This pairs well with the Stilton with Dried Apricot cheese.

I had this beer over Christmas last year, and was impressed. The apricot flavor is realistic, not phont tasting, and the beer has a good malty base. I would not call it real hoppy. I took a growler to go, and noticed that the apricot flavor intensified as it warmed. This is a solid fruit beer.
