UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 I actually thought this to be quite tasty. Alot of tart apricoty peachy aromas. Quite an effervescent light body. Not as sweet as I would have liked and the effervescene was a bit much (aftertaste of Alka-Seltzer).

I am not sure what they where trying to accomplish with this beer. I would either go with a lambic or a cider.

Panzuriel (1626) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2003
Nice hazy golden/amber color. Nice restrained nose of fruit. Good apricot taste mingling with decent hops. Good bitters. A nice beer.

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 3, 2003
Not a bad fruit beer. The apricot was fairly evident for me, in both smell and taste. Very cloudy with mild carbonation. It would be good on a hot day but other than that not too appealing.

mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - MAR 29, 2003
(Mar2003--12oz.bottle) Dense head initially, partially receding, hazy, limp carbonation, fine bubbles, some lacing. Aroma of apricot syrup. Flavor: syrupy, moderately sweet, slightly sour, apricot, adjuncts. No bitterness. Blah.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2003
Sweet apricot nectar aroma, and touch of wheat/yeast. Pleasing. Bright amber-orange cloudy liquid with thin, off-white, foamy, lacing head. Medium watery smooth body, medium carb. Citrusy/tangy in taste. Good amount of hops, wheaty but a little bitter. Can taste the apricot but not as pleasing as the aroma. Imparts some undesirable sour notes. Mild astringent finish and apricot/wheat after. Sourness detracts.

I can't get over the smell! It makes me want to fill a bathtub with it and bath in it. Nice color with a very big apricot and honey taste. Good for a fruit beer.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Yummmm... This beer made me want to clone it. Mine was dark and I added too much apricot extract. Close, tho! The smell is great. Its always murky looking to me. The beer is lite wheat tasting with a finish of mellow apricot. This one was so good on tap at the saucer.... Too bad they got rid of it.... Only two bad things are color/price.... This is a top10 beer of mine!

hoorayforbeer (105) - Denton, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Pours cloudy orange with white head. Smells very strongly of apricot. Has a very refreshing apricot flavor that doesn't taste artificial and isn't too sweet. Finishes with crisp maltiness.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2003
This beer poured an orange color and the taste was full of apricot fruitiness. However, this is not really to my liking because I like apricots and beer, just not together.
