On tap in a pint glass at the brewery on 7/21/12.

Dirty, muddy pond water brown with some orange dullness. Just under a one finger head. Thin layer of bubbles with a thick clump of foam.

Sweet, fruity and floral aroma. Fresh apricot with candied fruits and butter caramel. Rounded sweetness as it warms. To taste, apricot is a lesser player; hardly there, even. Instead, it's floral, herbal and earthy. Then again, the apricot does pick up over time and is quite tangy. It has kind of a funky twinge, too. Weird. Some musty grain and bread notes. The finish is really disoriented and confused. Slickish, granular feel. Plump, medium body. Carbonation is on the liberal side of average.

Overall, this beer has some ok qualities, but it just doesn't quite come together. It does better with warmth, though.

Served in a shaker pint glass at SmallBar - Division.

The bartender sorta smiled when I asked for this, a touch of mischief behind those eyes. He knew this stuff was simply billed as a pale ale on the draft list, so I had no idea what I was getting into. It pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises light grapefruit zest, pineapple, soft pine, and a kiss of biscuit. So far, so good, so normal. The taste, though, starts off all normal and innocent with the aforementioned notes; then it goes into full spice mode, with that chamomile shining brightest before some cinnamon, brown sugar, light clove, and even lighter black pepper. The result is a decidedly interesting and tasty assault on the tastebuds, leaving no 'bud prepared for what's coming next. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a creamy feel. Overall, one of the most interesting and unique pale ales I've had in some time. Get some!

"6.5% ABV. Pale ale brewed with plentiful amounts of Apricots and Chamomile. A collaboration beer with Chef Cleetus Friedman of City Provisions."

Draft serving at City Provisions.

Frothy head of white foam, hazy opaque dark orange body, some sticky lace around the edges. Fresh aromas of citrus and chamomile, the fruit is definitely the star of the show, though the light base of ale malt is also noticeable in the finish. Lightly sweet and tart, fruity apricot dominates the flavor.

Body is crisp and light, despite looking a little hefty, it's just the opposite. Will be looking for more at the Great Taste...
