Pours a hazy, light orange with a small head that quickly dissipates. Predictably, apricot hits heavy on the nose and continues thru the taste. Finishes clean and crisp. Definitely something worth drinking on a summer day.
pours a nice orange color with a blondie on the can so its off to a good start. Smells like a beer fruit roll up. TasTes very good not artificial and cloying as many fruit beers can be. Tasty would drink again slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Orange in color. Light body and a little light on the flavor, but the nose is peach and light malt. Quite fruity and pleasant as a summertime brew. I really like the sour version! zoucrew102 (2236) - - NOV 1, 2016
Can. Sweet apricot aroma with light notes of pale malt and a hint of grassy hops. Pours clear orange colored with a thin white head that has poor retention and little lacing. Starts with a boat load of sweet apricot flavor with a light amount of pale malt. Finishes smooth and very refreshing with a slight amount of grassy hops before ending with more sweet apricot and crisp and clean mouthfeel. Excellent fruit beer.

Nice lasting head. And good body also. How fitting. No off flavors very fruity. This is what you want a fruit beer to be. Nicely done.

Pours the colour of apricot skins, there’s plenty v foam that shrinks slowly.
As authentic an apricot smell as I’ve ever encountered. It’s a balanced smell of sweet and sour without suggesting that sour will dominate.
Sweetish apricots with an additional sweet note or 2 from the malt of the base Blonde Ale. I have to admit; the smell is outstanding, leaving the the taste placing 2nd in a 2 horse race.
Medium body with medium carbonation.
If only the flavours lived up to what those delightful aromas suggested. Still, it’s a lovely drop.

In a can
Hazy orange brown color. Kind of like apricot. Off white head that falls to a thin collar.
Nose is a whole lot of apricot. Apricot skin mostly. Very bright nose.
Taste is apricot and grain, little bit grassy. Light bodied, prickly carbonation. Slightly medicinal in the finish but well done. coachd (971) - Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Heavy apricot on the aroma with some hops. Kind of like marmalade but not as sweet. Nice hazy burnt orange color. Taste is also apricot with wheat in the background. The palate is smooth and substantial. My only knock on this beer is that it had a funky metallic aftertaste. Other than that, very well done by dry dock.

Dry Dock Apricot Blonde 5.1%
Thanks Nie! It is an orange honey gold pour with an apricot & cream aroma, possibly also peach blossoms. Fairly light bodied with a seltzer type carbonation. After the aroma the dry crackery flavor blessed with just hints of apricots leaves you kind of let down it lacked the juicy apricot you expected from the nose. A nice drink though with honeyed biscuit & tangy apricot. Nie (131) - - NOV 26, 2015
Sweet creamy apricot aroma. Cloudy slightly peach orange. Bittersweet apricot with tart complimenting hops, comes off with a biscuit taste. The flavor is a bit disappointing compared to the amazing aroma. Medium body, very active carbonation. burg326 (5628) - Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Drank from the can aromas of hay and apricots. Flavors are all apricots and hay mediocre but still better than a macro.
