Amazing. Smells like apricot and actually tastes like it, too. Much better than Mag#9. Incredible stuff. Lots of flavor. Buy this brew.

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.

Only in draft. Delicious rich apricot flavor... a little more than just a hint of apricot.

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.

I love Ottos micro brews, but this is one of their best. Lots of flavor and great aroma for an apricot beer. No awful aftertaste like some fruit wheats, and a good beer with any of their food items.

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.

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.

On draft at Ottos. Pours a semi clear honey orange with a medium oft white head. Aroma of fresh apricots and light wheat. Taste of fresh apricots, wheat and hops. Quite nice.

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...I’d recommend it!

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