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.

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.

Initially I was disappointed with this beer. I am not really into the Hef/blonde vairety if beers but this was just watery and bland. Apricot is jsut an afterthought. Bleek

JMerritt (1890) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2003
Pale orange color, very generous off-white head. Aroma is definitely strong of apricots. Flavor is initially very apricot-y, wanes to light malt, and sharply drops to blandsville. Finish is rather brackish and lifeless. A decent fruit beer, but far from the best. It would make a good introductory fruit beer to a new drinker, however, as it is very unoffensive and delivers exactly what it promises.

a good ale that does not lie when it claims to taste of apricots. I've met some non-beer drinkers who like this one.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2003
Hazy light orange appearance. Roasty hops and a touch of apricot in the aroma. Spritzy and lightly fruity, I was expecting more of an apricot experience. Finishes with a little hoppiness.

This stuff really tastes like apricots. If they put something else on tap after it,without changing lines, that will have an apricot flavor as well. (even if they clean the lines.)

3fourths (8601) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 Quite nice for a fruit beer. One of the few drinkable beers for some non-beer drinking freinds of mine, but perhaps that's not a good point. Very weak aroma, and flavors are good, although they don't merge well. Overly sweet, but still quite bland.
