3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange amber with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that was totally diminishing in a matter of seconds and basically had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very strong with the scent of apricots, along with a mild grain malt and a large dose of a sweet doughy yeast and not much else.
The taste was lightly sweet and very yeasty with a big fruity apricot note throughout with the finish being somewhat tart and big on wheat flavor. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a fruity tart wheat flavor left to lying on the taste buds for a little while.
Mouthfeel was just above light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a decent fruity brew with a nice wheat feel, a great beer for those days relaxing on the deck in the summer...

Our flavorful apricot ale boldly combines the taste and aroma of fresh apricot with the smooth finish of wheat malt. Its refreshingly unfiltered character and fruit flavor make it an ale worth savoring.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated from old notes. Pungent, strong, sweet cloying taste with an overwhelming apricot smell. One whiff and you start to fear the beer. Goes down like sodapop - fizzy and burpy. Seemed artificially carbonated. Avoid.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: pours a thick off white head that drops slowly with mild lacing. Cloudy light yellow gold color.
Aroma: strong apricot aroma along with wheat, white bread and a bit of lemon.
Mouthfeel: light and fizzy
Flavor: apricot also dominates the taste with wheat and malt notes in the background and just enough hops to slightly offset the sweetness.
Overall: ok for the style, but nothing spectacular and too sweet to drink more than one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated based on notes taken 4 Aug 2012 -- Was a little disappointed in this beer. Not exactly what I was expecting, but this was a little thin and artificial tasting.
