Golden and clear. Strong aroma of Apricots. Flavour is wheat and apricot, could use a lot more complexity.

Trev (1936) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle: Pours a clear medium gold with a thin white head. Aroma is deliciously apricot (like smelling a jar of jelly. Flavour is no where as sweet as the aroma suggests. It’s a bit flat in the flavour in my opinion. I expected alot more, medium carbonation gives a good mouthfeel without being too much. Struggles to get that wheat tartness to the front. Nice clean finish. An enjoyable beer but I expected more really.

presario (4631) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2005
Bottle. Dark gold. Head starts thick and leaves a lasting sticky film. Strong apricot aroma. Apricots add a unique bitterness to the beer. Not a bad fall sipper.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2005
On tap. Very very fruity nose. Flavor is slightly wheaty with lots of apricot and some strawberry. A bit of straw/wheat in the finish.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Dorée, apparence translucide, claire et filtrée. Moyenne quantité de mousse blanche et crémeuse laissant plus tard une fine pellicule recouvrant le liquide et adhérant partiellement au verre. Parfumé, comme la section des parfums du magasin à rayon. Essence d’abricots sous une décente base de malt. Arômes d’essence à gâteau et du sucre recouvrant certaines gommes à mâcher. Un aspect épicé, style poivre fait également surface. Simple et unidirectionnelle en bouche, on s’en lasse très rapidement. Texture laiteuse, corps d’épaisseur semi mince à moyenne, légèrement piquante en bouche. Aucune trace d’alcool de détectable.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear sparkling amber with a small fizzy tan head. The aroma just blew me away, it smells wonderful. It’s very fruity and sweet but in a good way. The flavour is also sweet and fruity but with some hop bitterness making for a very pleasant taste. I don’t usually care for most Fruit beers but for what this is it’s just about perfect.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2005
Bottled. Very strong apricot aroma but not really artificial. Clear (it was a wheat wasn’t it?), dark yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Light sweet, chemical apricot, light bitter, pretty smooth. I expected more from McAuslan but this really tastes like a lager with bad apricot syrup.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Bottle (341ml). Sampled at the 2005 Toronto (Fort York) Festival of Beer. After a couple of crappy GenericLagers, this tasted like ambrosia. Poured a pale, slightly hazy amber-yellow with a spare white head. Aroma was incredibly sweet, but as it didn’t stink like Green Giant creamed corn, I wasn’t complaining - very fruity, apricots, apples and pears, with some bready yeastiness and vague malt. Tasted quite fruity, not as sweet as it smelled, again apricots and apples, a bit of grain and straw flavour, slight hops - refreshing. Light, lively, slightly oily mouthfeel.

PandoraGreen (27) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2005
Draft. Slighty sweet, fruity, scent. Nice amber gold colour with nada head. Not sweet, very carbonated. Apricot is not overpowering, more of a back of the mouth taste.

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2005
Overall plesant, I guess. Pours a golden peach, light head, almost flat. Aroma is of apricot. {Duhhhhh} Mouthfeel is slightly thick, like the syrop from a can of peaches has been mixed into a beer. Taste is domonant of apricot, grasy wheat, with a sweet aftertaste. It’s a fruit beer that tastes like fruit. Overall I guess that’s a sucsess, but I cant see wanting my beer to taste like anything but beer. Cheers.
