If I had to drink a fruit beer, this would be it. Apricots are not overwhelming, but compliments the beer’s clean and crispt taste. Solid.

I’m not a big fan of fruit influenced beers, but this beer is excellent. The apricot aroma is very fresh and braced me for a beer that does not skimp on the apricots. The flavor is neither subtle nor sweet, both a pleasant suprise. Great summer refresher.

I really enjoy apricots. This beer if good if you are in need of something refreshing...technically, I think it lacks a good malt profile, and after a while the apricots become obsessive. I can only drink one, maybe two of these before I am ready to move on. Lately, however, they are refreshing after working in the heat.

A local beer, weak body, sours easily, very temperature sensitive, not much back end. Fake apricot aroma ’staining’ the glass with adhesion and persistence.

Too stong on the apricots for my taste. I mean seriously - this tastes like carbonated apricot juice.

Let’s see. I like beer. I dislike apricots. Apparently I dislike apricots more than I like beer. Points for color that matches the flavor though.

slight head, decent appearance, i would say there is more than a ’hint’ of apricots...i thought both the flavor and aroma were too powerful..didnt get much of a beer taste at all.

This beer pours out of the bottle with a nice, deep yellow color and a nice white head. The best part of this beer experience is the aroma. The smell is of fresh apricots. The beer is sort of thin and does not support the apricot flavor. Not well balanced, but a decent fruit beer as fruit beers go.

I liked this a lot before my taste for beer had really developed, now it’s far too sweet. Looks and smells nice, but the apricots are just far too overpowering - could be a bit more on the wheaty side.
