This beer is quite refreshing on tap, very light and drinkable. The alcohol content stands at 6.2% but it tastes very spritzy. The apricot flavor is pronounced but without sweetness. It also has a bit of a yeasty wheat taste to it. The carbonation and tartness reminded me a little bit of Sprite. Yum. I will keep this in mind as a tasty (mid-day)summer beer.

16 oz. bottle poured into Nonic pint glass.

Appearance: cloudy light orange/brown colored body with a slight off-white billowing, rocky head. The look of a nice hefeweizen. Fine bubble carbonation leaves nice lacing around glass sides.

Smell: definite peach and dried apricot aromas are soft and not overpowering. Reminds me of long forgotten Gerber peach or apricot baby foods.

Taste: mild peach and apricot is dry, hardly sweet at all. Dry lemon zest finish. Hop taste and smell seem almost non-existent. Crusty, bready flavors at finish.

Mouthfeel: love the carbonation. Makes for a smooth mouthfeel. Perfectly balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Light to medium bodied beer.

Drinkability: refreshing and tasty with little alcohol taste makes for pretty easy drinking. This beer reminds me of a warm spring day.

16oz bottle with reasonably involved silkscreening obtained via trade with BierReise. Thanks for the opportunity...

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed over an inch of whitish head which had good foamy staying power. A cloudy golden peach in color, and the aroma is peach and apricots, whoa, does the aroma ever match this brew's name! Flavor is not quite as fruity as the aroma led me to expect, and is actually quite well-balanced with the light malts and hops. Smooth mouthfeel, with enough hops action to keep the brew from hitting far that sickly-sweet level that some fruit beers achieve. A great summer beer, I would expect, and even though I am not the world's biggest fruit beer fan, I have to appreciate this one...

Picked one up at Blackburn Point Liquors in Osprey, FL. Had tried the Leonard Croon's Old Mean Stout and enjoyed it, so what the hey.

Poured straight into a pint glass. A big, light-colored head formed over the hazy, somewhat cloudy, golden colored liquid. The head stayed for quite some time, several minutes, dropping evenly and leaving no trace of lace at all.
Smell was, of course, peach & apricots, hops and a little malt sweetness lingering in the background.
Taste followed through with peach/apricot, hops, hints of lemon later and just a touch of alcohol present at the end.
Mouthfeel was smooth, lightly carbonated, a light-to-medium body. Perfect for a summer brew.
Drinkability is very high. A great flavor without being overpowering or cloying. An easily quaffable beer and one I will have again.

Had this on-tap at Dunedin Brewery, served on a Pint glass.

A: light but cloudy orange color with a small white head.

S: as advertised, peach is predominant on the nose which is a nice touch. Well done because the peach aroma is never offensive. Hints of wheat were present as well.

T: sweet fruity flavor with peach leading the way, apricots and a yeasty finish. Good balance and good implementation of said fruit flavors.

M: light to medium body, balanced carbonation. Very drinkable.

O: a very solid choice, fans of the style should definitely try this beer. Makes a good beer for a hot summer day.

Dunedin Apricot Peach Ale pours a hazy golden color with a small white head from a brown sixteen ounce bottle. The aroma is apricot and peach, with apricot coming out on top. Apricot dominates the taste, there's a little peach too, followed by a wheat flavor. Spritzy carbonation and a light body. This is a nice summer beer, perfect for our hot Florida days. Definitely worth a try if you like fruit beers.

16oz. Bottle. Poured a cloudy honey gold color with a very dense and creamy white head that lasted quite awhile. Aroma is very fragrant with peahes and apricots that are slightly perfume like but rather pleasant. Flavor is fruity with peaches and light like a wit. Body is medium, not too thin. Overall a decent brew that was refreshing to say the least.

Very hazy golden color due to being unfiltered. Almost no head to speak of. Not much in the smell department other than the slightest bit of apricot and peach tones (surprise surprise)

Taste is surprisingly smooth, refreshing and fruity. Apricots dominate the palate, and the peach mingles well with it. This would make a great sumemrtime/lawnmower beer. Finish is wet and fruity. Thin mouthfeel, but it is what it is.

While this isnt an exicting beer, its definately a juicy quencher. I could see myself chugging a few of these in the 100 degree Florida heat this summer.

According to the bottle this is an unfiltered ale brewed with apricot puree.

A cloudy pink pour with a small off white head. Looks like a glass of grapefuit juice. The nose is very sweet and full of ripe apricot and candy. The taste on the other hand is much more mild. Only hints of apricot creep through. There is a tartness and refreshing fruitiness to it. The mouthfeel is light and creamy. Seems to be the perfect summer quencher. A quality beer.
