12 oz bottle. (Jungle Jimís) Fairfield, OH.
Hazy amber colour with a small white head.
Wheat, some sweet fruitiness and yeast in the aroma.
Yeast, sweet caramel malt, some strange fruitiness, mild tartness and toffe in the flavour. Not much apricot though. Quite bad...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Past the BB date, but who cares, itís not an IPA.
A: Pours an apri-- Iím not going to say it. Iím just going to say it pours a golden orange color. There are a few specks of yeast sediment floating around in there, too. The head is a frothy-looking eggshell shade one fingers high. Retention is low and thereís minimal - if any - lacing left on the glass.
S: Apricots aplenty. Thatís good and all, but the fact they seem a bit sweet and extract-y is a turnoff. Another turnoff: the dregs seem to have a cheesy aroma to it. íCourse, I still poured them in the glass anyways, because Iím a boss like that.
T: Sweet apricots start and finish this one off. Did I mention sweet? The only thing to break up the monotony is a touch of back end tartness. On the plus side, I donít pick up much cheesiness in the flavor, so that good. I guess.
M: High carbonation and an off-dry finish do an okay job of scrubbing away some of the palate sweetness. Still too sweet, but not as stupidly cloying as it could have been. Not particularly easy to drink.
O: Meh. How many different ways can you say íchick beerí?

Aroma is apricot and wheat. Appearance is hazy apricot color with small off white head, Taste is all apricot with a bit of wheat. Palate is medium. Apricot lingers. Overall a decent fruit beer. Apricot comes across as completely artificial but still drinkable. Very one dimensional.

Yuck. Didn't like this at all. Poured a hazy amber. Over carbonated. Lots of fruit on the nose and palate. Some orange also. Too sweet.

Cloudy gold pour. Aroma is sweet apricot and wheat. Sweet apricot dominates the palate, with a light wheat base. Itís tasty, but the apricot is too sweet overall.
