12 oz. bottle from Wisconsin. Immediately this one pops a nose of slightly over ripened fruits. Pours a hazy orange amber with a 2 inch frothy head that lasts forever. Something seems to be off here, not sure if it is a bad bottle or what. Mild apricot flavor overpowered by some almost rotten fruit notes. Saving grace is a nice tart finish that if nothing more cleanses the palate of off flavors. Disappointing beer from a usually dependable little brewery.
Pours clear, brassy orange -- dare I say apricot-colored? -- with a big fizzy head that soon settles but doesn’t leave much lacing. Smells of apricots, honey, and cereal; a pleasant enough aroma but not terribly nuanced. Flavor is a solid burst of apricot as one might expect buoyed by a solid malt backbone. This beer is really upfront with its apricot profile. Washed down with fizzy, bubbly sensation and some lingering cloying sweetness. Refreshing summer flavor but a bit too sticky to be thirst-quenching. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at Stubbys. Amber with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of apricots, caramel and light spices. Taste of mild apricot, sweet malt, faint noble hops and a sweet and semi-tart finish. dekester1 (368) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a nice, clear copper/amber with modest head and lacing. Aroma was sweet - malt, apricot and fruitiness. Taste was malty with apricots, light hoppiness and slight sour twinge at the finish. Palate was very good. Overall, a nice smooth fruity brew. Even if you’re not a big fan of apricots, this is worth a try. crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Draft. Very light but not too sweet, plenty of apricot and a good dose of light maltiness.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk...thanks Greg! - Pours light golden amber with a thin white head. Nose is floral perfume soap with some grainy malt. Taste is real grainy, rotten fruit, light tartness, and a real off-putting finish. Well-carbonated and biting. There wasn’t much I liked about this beer, but I’d be willing to give it another shot. cbfobes (2885) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle shared by Greg, pours an unclear orange with a white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma really has the apricot come through with a nice amount of sweetness, the flavor has quite a bit of fruit on the front end with a dry finish, kind of different but not bad. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 12oz bottle. Unfiltered hazy orange body, thin creamy white head. Full of pungent, earthy apricot flavor, this is a pretty unique offering. Medium bodied, refreshing, with a really nice apricot depth. Some zesty bite up front, but finishes smooth and easy. Refreshing, tasty beer. Juicy, tangy.
