This is only fruit beer that I will drink twice. It has a good wheat base and just a touch of the apricot to give it a clean finish. great summer beer.

If your looking for a fruit beer, this is a good one. Cloudy orange color. Strong apricot taste initially, but blends and fades nicely with the finish.

I had one of these when I lived in California at the Pyramid Breweries restaurant in Berkeley. Weak hint of fruit or apricot, light taste but with little or no depth.

This fruit beer has a hazy golden color, rather like a hefeweizen, but more orange. Its aroma is pleasant, a slightly sour apricot smell, with a hint of hops. Its flavor is a bit more strongly hoppy, and here I run into a problem: I just donít think apricots and hops work together very well. Additionally, the fizz content is too high for my taste. This isnít a bad fruit beer, and Iím sure some will like it, but itís not to my taste.

Fruity apricot aroma, not as fruity as I thought, nice clean dry finish.

This beer smells nice and I give it credit for uniqueness but something just didnít click. Not my style of beer!

About a year ago, this was the first and only beer I liked. Ahh, the memories. But as they say, you can never go back. Still, a wonderful apricot aroma. The flavour is quite syrupy, but with a decent hop presence to balance. Refreshing but nothing I could drink every day. A decent fruit beer.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2005 The beer escapes the 12-ounce brown bottle a limpid amber color with a modest sized frothy light tan head after its decomposition the lace forms a thin concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is heavy on the apricots, fresh and crisp, sweet with the start sweet and the malt profile decent, the top fair to middling in feel. Finish has a pronounced acidity with the hops light in spiciness, the aftertaste tart and dry, a drinkable beer, but nothing I would drink on a regular basis.
