On tap at the brewery. Clear straw yellow with white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and fruity apricot, though not overly sweet. Taste is lightly sweet and malty. Mouthfeel is very crisp and carbonated. Pretty nice! puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Super sweet, fruity, apricot nose, with an ugly wheat beneath. Very regular fruit beer tasting -- a disappointment coming from these guys. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009
Pale golden/straw colour with loads of apricot and a bit of wheaty spiciness. Simple and sweet without much in the way of complexity. A simple, quaffable wheat ale. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Dried apricots, with much residual sugars. Hint of lacto but just sweet overall. Eh not so good beer, but the name; well played. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2009
On tap at the Blind Tiger at their Kuhnhenn event. Pours a clear pale yellow with at very slight touch of a white head. Lots of fruit, apricots, pears, grapes. A bit thin, but gorgeous apricot flavor. Light sweet finish with some overlying apricot flavors.

Tap at Blind Tiger: Light golden with a fading white head. The aroma is quite fruity- apparent apricot yet it’s very fructose ridden and one dimensional. The body is light with apparent apricot character in the flavor. Lacking body overall and the base beer isn’t very discernible. There is a touch of diacetyl in the middle followed by vague grains. Again, a natural fruit presence but lacking body and dimension. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Clear, pale body with small white head. The aroma is apricot syrup, sweet and a bit medicinal. The flavor is apricot, fairly sweet with some caramels and floral. Medium/light body is a bit flimsy. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 20, 2007
UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 A couple of draught samples at the brewery on 4/8/07xav33 (313) - Midland, MI, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2007
Hazy peach-apricot-gold color, with a small, cascading head that is retained fairly well.
Strong diacetyl, and chewy apricot skin in the aroma. Light caramel and gooey vanilla iced cream as well. Very light tartness on the end is a bit unsettling mixed with caramel and diacetyl. Medium strength, no alcohol and a very rich aroma from the malt
Kind of like a british pale ale, the apricots didnt come out as well as Eric said he would have liked, leaving it almost like an extremely estery English bitter, replete with lots of diacetyl. Creamy, partially nitrogenated body it seems. Very sweet with only a light, light tartness and some vanilla-caramel lingering. I actually just thought of it as an English bitter and drank it pretty easily that way, though it’s still a bit sweet and lightly tart, giving it some similarities to Lindemans Peche
Kuhnhenn Apricot P.D.
64 oz growler
Moderate pour in an English pint
Unknown brewing (recent?), enjoyed 2 days after the growler pour, 04/07
Poured a clear dark copper with a large fluffy slightly off white head with good lacing.
Smelt of strong apricot and caramel.
Taste was upfront moderate sweet and lightly sour apricot, light sweet caramel and faint bitter grassy hops followed by more of the same accompanied by a light bitter doughy yeast on an average length finish.
Palate was light bodied, watery, softly carbonated.
Overall, a tasty fruit forward beer. The latter part of the name works too... JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Yes, I know everyone’s thinking I was drinking the Peach Apricot PD, and not a new beer, but I wrote down what was printed on the drink list and it said Apricot Panty Dropper. Slightly cloudy orange with a thick white head. Light to medium in body. Taste is an interesting fruity flavor, interesting in that the taste is much more akin to the actual taste experience of an apricot or peach. The taste was slightlly acidic and tart along with some sweet, rather than a one-dimensional sweetness often described as "fruity". Aroma is mildly sweet, like melon or peach.
