This beer is what is says it is, and does what it claims to do. From the tap at the Green 7 in Glendale, WI, a few months ago. Unlike a lot of fruit beers which are either (1) too fruity and more like a glass of carbonated Kool-Aid or (2) Not fruity enough, or generally "fruity" instead of reflecting the flavor, aroma and appearance of the fruit. This beer strikes a decent balance between the two. Nice wheatbeer appearance with the aroma and flavor of apricots. Best cold, and best on a warm day.
Quite fruity, light crisp summer drinking. Not overall great beer underneath the dominant apricot though. Bottle in Berkeley

Cloudy like a NE style IPA. gripweed57 (2921) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Semi tart apricot and wheat aroma. Smells like the pits were thrown in.
Tastes like it smells. Not too sweet not too tart.
I had this years ago. Didn’t like it back then.
From old tasting notes. Hazy honey gold color. Fluffy white head. Sweet apricot malt aroma. Tangy wheat malt flavor with hints apricot and peach. Nice flavor. Very refreshing. BeerRenter76 (1044) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 1/23/09. This is about what you would expect, apricot flavor and aroma. Body is a little murky, slightly orange, with a thin cap. Overall its an enjoyable beer if you like apricots. lbcgreg (67) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
Sweet hints of apricot and slight malt flovour. Very little hop. Great summer beer.

Fresh in Seattle, fantastic nose and full fruit flavor. Some could argue it’s too fruity, but c’mon, it’s an APRICOT ale. Enjoyable! robinvboyer (4787) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2016
Hazy, Cloudy dark orange pour, with a large white head. Aroma is obviously not on juicy apricot flesh, with some honey, and peach. Mouth feel and carb are good. Finish is lightly bitter, sweet, smooth wheat finish, with a nice softly sweet fruity end. A decent fruit beer, not over the top, just solid. electrotype (664) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2016
Pas mal trop artificiel. On s’éloigne amplement des vrais abricots. Malgré tout, ça aurait pu ête pire, être encore plus sucré. Très moyen, mais buvable. Melkart (431) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - APR 12, 2016
Our flavorful apricot ale boldly combines the taste and aroma of fresh apricot with the smooth finish of wheat malt. Its refreshingly unfiltered character and fruit flavor make it an ale worth savoring. donandres (681) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - FEB 24, 2016
