Clear orange gold color, just a white ring of foam around the glass a head. Aroma of apricot, but it feels more like syrup or essence than the fruit itself, some wheat too. Sweet, fruity flavor of apricot, again, it feels more like syrup, sweet finish. Light body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Cheap fruit beer ...

I always wonder why apricot is always buried under a mountain of syrup as a flavour in products. Itís a tad malty and a bit too clear. Nothing to write home about really.

Pale golden colour, thick white head. Huge apricot and honey aroma, light spice. Flavour is fairly sweet. Flavour is light and spritzy, apricot flavour, some UK hops over a dry wheaty finish. Acidic finish. Refreshing.

I was surprised by this beer the first time I tried it--from a McAuslan tasters six pack--as I am not inclined towards fruit beers, but this was not overwhelming and simpkly had a nice sweet taste to it.

boring orange color with white head...apricot comes through in the aroma with a side of mildewy books and old dirty once wet clothing...really thin bodied with a spritzy apricot essence to it...kinda lagery behind the fruit...not refreshing like i think it tries to be.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A hazy orange beer with a very small head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of apricot. The flavor is of apricot and coriander - but I donít like it. And the body is even thin.

draught at the Toronto Beer Festival. I donít know why it took me so long to try this beer since itís readily available in Ontario. But anyway. The apricot aspect of this beer was fairly subtle and didnít show up for me until right at the end. Light hoppy flavour and very quaffable. Itís not up there with the other McAuslanís but itís still decent.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2004
Nice apricot aroma. Honey-colored beer. Bland beer with apricot. Fruit ruins the complexity. Apricots and lightly hoppy. Diacetyl finish.

Pours a very nice golden colour, but it needs a stronger flavour. Very strong apricot nose, but that isnít backed up by the taste. Itís a step above a crappy wheat beer with a little extract, but no great. The mouthfeel is goo and the initial flavour provides a promising dose of apricots, but then it dies off.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2004 Very aromatic with a blast of apricots. nice golden colour. very refreshing, very well-balanced.
