This is a surprisingly well done beer. The apricot consumes everything but not in an unpleasant way. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
550 ml bottle. Mostly clear yellow orange, smaller foamy white fading head. Tantalizing apricot aroma. Sweet apricot juice taste and not much else. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, no discernible malt or hop presence. Tart finish. Good for what it is. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Cloudy Pale orange.Some froth,leaves a little frothy decending lace.
Aroma is strange/unique. Its got a fruitlike aroma but the apricot is kind of mutated with some dyacytal/woodines/butterscotch/tartness.Maybe even some leather. Some mineral/light grassyness even.
Taste is good with a fruit/cider like quality. Tart and sweet. Some butterynotes,apricot with woody dry -butterscotch,apple cider. Pretty tastey.

Bottle. Pours a hazy -- well -- apricot colored. (Duh, huh?) Head is high and white with large grains and lace. The nose is superlative -- avoiding the candied extremes that fruit beers are prone to. This just smells like apricot preserves, rich, floral, and sweet. Apricot is dominant on the front of the palate, but a malty and bitter midpalate finishes with more clean, vibrant fruit. Anyone who wants to make a fruit beer should drink this first.

Bottle. Taste is peach and apricot infused champagne, with a fizzy mouthfeel. Decent fruit beer.

355ml bottle. Orangey golden-yellow colour, white foam head that dissipates and aroma of sugary apricot & syrup. Taste is sweet fruity apricot with flowery hop and yeasty notes, some tartness and light bitterness. Light bodied, well carbonated, crisp dry sourish finish. Quite drinkable.

Yet another sweet and summer-satisfying fruit beer from Samuel Smith. Probably a little too sweet, but very refreshing during summer’s last stand. Difficult to dislike, but not what most would call excellent beer.

Bottle from app vintner - pours a cloudy peach with a white head. Aroma apricots, wheat, and malt. Taste is sweet with a nice bite. Palate is syrupy. Overall, one of the few apricot based beers that tastes like apricots!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden yolk color with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of apricots, grass, citrus, wood and some nice sweetness. Nice apricot and wood aroma. Both the aroma and taste come across as tart tart. Has a nice full body that slightly coats the mouth. The finish is a bit tart, sour, bitter and dry.
