JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Courtesy dsnowden. Pours a clear light yellow with very little head. Aroma of overripe apricot flesh, a bit of a candied smell. Lighter body, lightly carbonated. Not much fruit going on in the taste and not a lot of wheat character either. Just a general sweetness up front and a bruised-fruit sourness, pretty bland finish.

Clear golden pour, thin and fully receding white head. Boring to gaze upon. The aroma is full-throttle apricot, glazed with notes of sweet powdered sugar and hints of apple cider. Something this sweet typically does nothing for me, but this has a very unique scent and I find it interesting and pleasant. Lesser notes of peach, orange rind and wheated malt, though none seem to change the direction the apricot is headed - sugary sweet with little else to compete. The flavor is pretty pathetic, apricot the only component that retains any sense of strength. Wheat is soft, astringent and roiling with clove and banana that join diminished notes of peach. Still sugary sweet, the mouthfeel is watery and the sweetness is reminiscent of stale juice-box-juice. The finish is sweet, wheaty and musty. Blah.

Something truly different. Nice barley and wheat flavour, with a pleasant apricot nose, and subtle hints of banana. Lovely golden colour and nice head. Unique and tasty.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Poured a clear amber color. Aroma is full on apricot sweetness. There is an under pinning aroma of some pie spices, almost as if a freshly baked peach cobbler is coming out ofthe oven and awaiting my arrival. Flavor is nowhere as sweet as the aroma would lend you to believe. The finish is slightly fruity, with a slight almond note.

From bottle. Peach aroma. Extremely clear pale orange colour. Crisp taste . Peaches through and through. Very well made I feel. Clean and crisp. Good refreshing beer

Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2007
The aroma is loaded with apricots. The first sip also screams apricots. As the bottle progresses, some slight malty hues make themselves apparent. Kriek style with a different fruit. Great.

3.2
french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2007
Clear golden poor with a nice thick foamy off-white head. Aromas of peaches, apricots, mcintosh apples, mangos, corn and hints of caramel and fresh malt. Nice even balanced mouthfeel, slightly bitter but nicely sweetened, nothing artificial. Good carbonation. Sweet crisp fruity aftertaste. Flavors are grainy and have notes of lots of fruits.

larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2007
Big offwhite head. Deep orange body with lively carbonation. Strong sweetish apricot aroma with notes of candy and mealy wheat. Mild mealy apricot taste with hoppy, papery notes. Faintly sweetish. Dry papery apricot aftertaste. Interesting, nice, and very drinkable. (0.341l bottle from a grocery store in Montréal.)

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2008 There is something inherently likable about this beer. The mouthfeel is impressively soft and velvety: a small sip is enough to cover the mouth. Not overly fruity due to the natural tart-bitterness of apricots. Because the fruit is not invasive, this is a dry fruit beer. It’s by no means a big beer, but it goes down so well I find myself returning again and again.
draught @ Winking Judge: Clear warm orange gold. Aromatic apricot wafts up from the glass. Sweet-tart like good candy. Medium carbonation. Juicy, off-dry. The apricot dies out a little at the end yielding to a fruity dry finish.
