You can knock "fruity" tastes in beer. And, admitedly, when you hear apricot and beer, things can get a bit scary. However, Magic Hat has done a nice job with this one. Makes for a great "Black Magic" underneath Guinness and is a great way to finish a night of drinking. Nice malty / apricot flavor.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with thin white head that leaves only a ring in my glass. Nose is wheaty and yeasty with apricot and a touch of peaches. Flavor is dominated by apricot. Always tastes much better out of the bottle than on draft. Not too sweet; a good session beer.

Orangish coloring. It tasted like apricots and grass, I don’t want to drink apricots or grass and that is what this was. Horrid, the worst beer I have ever had.

This beer is fresh, crisp, cool, sweet, and has everything that you could ever ask in a beer. There really aren’t many words that can describe how good this beer is.

This is one of my favorite standard beers, and I’m so glad it’s finally available in WV! They even just put it on at the Moose in Martinsburg!
Refreshing and easy drinking, this is a great session beer, with perfect balance, and perfect lacing, and a great finish!

Also on draught at Jet Rock in the Philadelphia airport (Terminal B, I believe). A wheaty, apricot thing my wife ordered. Good enough, I suppose. Not as good as DFH Aprihop. Better than Pyramid Apricot Weizen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Hazy and orange colored. Slightly golden and pink grapefruit juice hue. Spotty white head. Apricot and peach nose. Citrus and tons of different fruits. Initial dry and slightly bitter flavor. Then the sweet honeyish flavors come through. Then the cornucopia of fruit flavors. Of course, apricots and peaches. But there are other notes of orange, lemon and lime, slight grapefruit and plumes. The finish is crisp and sharp. The hops are citrusy and dry. Tart and sour flavors intermingle with sweet and sugary nuances. This is definitely tasty, and the fruit flavors are enhanced by the dry finish.

This is my personal favorite MH brew. It has a brown-like ale pour. It smells of hops and apricot...aprihops. This is a great pale and has a smooth taste that all can enjoy.

a sim rate: (on tap at 7B in NYC) Sweet aroma and flavour. Very citrus and fruity. Nice, drinkable and worth a try.

This is my first of beer of my next 100 beers. This pale ale was purchased at The caboose in Ashland, VA. The pale ale was thin with little body. The head was white with about one finger. The color was a straw. There was fruitiness and some sweetness. This was just a unremarkable beverage.
