Way fruity. Not too shabby, but only once in a while. Not beer-like enough for normal consumption.

Way too intense for me. The apricot aroma and flavour overpowers with just a slight wheaty taste at the end. I like my fruit flavours much more subtle.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2005 Very interesting, for a fruit beer. Super cloudy, apricot-colored, even! If I have to have a fruity beer, I wouldn’t be sad if it was this one. (Lambic of course would be the best... 8)

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2001
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 Hazy peach colour. Big apricot aroma, kind of syrupy but not much else. Big sweet apricot taste, hint of wheaty tartness. Sweet & tart finish, still with lots of apricot. That’s really about it. Pleasant, refreshing, drinkable but not terribly exciting unless you like apricot.

Original rating: Back in the day, before the likes of New Glarus and Quelque Chose, this was considered a definitive North American fruit ale. It is unfiltered, has a peachy colour, and strong sweet apricot flavours, which fall away towards the finish. Ar 7 Ap 4 Fl 7 P 4 Ov 14 = 3.6

The Apricot and sweetness is a bit to overpowering. A well made beer, but I would prefer better balance.

This is a great summer beer. The nose on this beer is delightful, very fruity. It literally smelled like I had just opened a jar of apricot jam. The pleasant surprise came when drinking this mellow, smooth ale. The surprise is that the apricot flavor wasn’t overpowering. It was a great balance, with a terrific apricot finish. If you don’t like fruit beers you probably wouldn’t buy this anyway. But for those of us who do like an occasional fruit beer, this is one of the best.

Very refreshing, but the apricot taste is a little strong. Magic Hat #9 is much better!

honey colour, strong apricot aroma, disgusting flavor with plastic aftertaste

PhillyBeer2112 (2517) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2000
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2004 This bere smells far better than it tastes. (nice apricot aroma). The flavor is dry and moderately fruity, but not very interesting (actually quite boring, with the apricot flavors being very attenuated and almost unpleasant). Almost a waste of a mediocre wheat to start with, and a questionable choice of fruit.
