3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange amber with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that was totally diminishing in a matter of seconds and basically had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very strong with the scent of apricots, along with a mild grain malt and a large dose of a sweet doughy yeast and not much else.
The taste was lightly sweet and very yeasty with a big fruity apricot note throughout with the finish being somewhat tart and big on wheat flavor. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a fruity tart wheat flavor left to lying on the taste buds for a little while.
Mouthfeel was just above light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a decent fruity brew with a nice wheat feel, a great beer for those days relaxing on the deck in the summer...
Cloudy like a NE style IPA.
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. gripweed57 (2460) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 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. BCMike22 (92) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 13, 2016
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!

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 (655) - 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 (527) - Bayombong, PHILIPPINES - FEB 24, 2016
