A decent, lightly cloudy, light orange color to this beer with a nice white head. The aroma is (obviously) apricotty (is that a word?). It's not overpoweringly so, which is nice. Also some wheaty notes. The flavor isn't as sweet as expected (which is good) and is drier than expected (which is...neutral). I'm kind of surprised by this one...not in terms of ratings...but, rather, in terms of the way this beer is constructed in terms of alcohol flavor sweetness, etc. It's better than expected, and for someone wanting a fruit beer without a LOT of sweetness, this is a nice choice. I don't want to mislead though...this isn't a "really good" beer. It's good and has a nice flavor. I get the feeling, however, that if the apricot WASN'T there...in other words, if it was JUST a wheat beer, that this one wouldn't be too good. Not much OTHER than the apricot here.

Straight out the aroma was nice. Quite refreshing flavor, dry, sweetish. Aftertaste left a popcorn taste, strange. Had this beer on tap many years ago, was better then.

Tap. Awwwwwwwwww....it's a fruit drink trying to act like a lambic, isn't that cute?? The strong apricot aroma was nice and for a moment I thought that this might actually be good despite my initial thoughts, but the graininess in the flavor ruined it for me. Still a good chick drink.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2003 Tastes a lot like an American wheat flavored with apricots. ;-) So I guess it's a success in that regard. Fairly one-dimensional and nothing I'd drink regularly.

Cobra (1100) - - MAY 4, 2003
Pours out a cloudy, well, apricot color. Not much of a head to begin with, fades to a layer of fine bubbles around the rim. Nose is of fresh fruits, some dried fruits also evident. Background of sewage. Literally, sewage. Highly carbonated, thin on the palate, and thing in general. Not very bitter from the hops, but has a weird bitter tang finish to it. Has a dry aftertaste to it, kind of sulfur-ish.Not the best example of a fruit beer by any stretch of the imagination.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - APR 22, 2003
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.

Nice hazy golden/amber color. Nice restrained nose of fruit. Good apricot taste mingling with decent hops. Good bitters. A nice beer.

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.
