First had: on tap at their brewpub

The brewer called this beer Dunedin's "biggest seller," and it's pretty obvious why, especially if you're a woman or college student. Not really my style, and I'm assuming this uses syrup or concentrate rather than actual fruit, but overall, this was not a bad fruit beer, IMO.

Hazy, golden orange color, with a fizzy white head that receded to a wispy layer, maybe leaving a few dots of lacing on the glass. Sweet but not cloying aroma, caramel malts and apricot/peach. Taste reflected the nose, bready malts, toasted wheat, apricot/peach essence omnipresent but not overpowering, light leafy hops in the background. Body was light edging towards medium, above average carbonation. Not something I'd go for again, but good in its own way.

S: Sweet and fruity aroma – mostly peach and apricot .

T: Sweet fruity flavor (peach and apricot) with a wheat malt background.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Decent fruit beer –easy drinker.

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.

Had quite a few of these in plastic ups on the beach the last time I was in florid. This is decent. A haze golden brew with a billowy cloud white head. Retention is minimal, but it is 100 degrees out, so whattyagonnado. Aromas of Peach and wheat, with a bit of biscuit malt. Taste is the same, fruity with the peach and a nice solid wheaty biscuit malt backdrop. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth wheat. Drinkability can't be beat when in the lower FL heat...Not bad..

From the tap, my wife ordered this one. It had a dark gold color with a slight creamy head. I tried it and immediately thought of an apricot soda with a beer aftertaste. I am not big on fruit beers at all but for what it was it seemed like a wheat beer with a hint of apricot. It was kind of sweet with a minute bitter aftertaste. It's not too bad if you are looking for a light and refreshing summer beer to quench your thirst.

I also want to note that I saw quite a few other guys in the bar requesting this ale. It seemed like a popular choice at the Dunedin Brewery.

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.

Pours a pale amber. Another highly charged offering from Dunedin. Split this one with my wife and got the right pour for her. Yeasties in there.
Apricots dominate, but there is a peachy/banana presence.
Apricot, peach, and banana like yeasties. Tart and maybe a touch sour.
Light bodied, Sour pucker, and way overcarbonated.
I'm begining to think Dunedin bottles prematurely.

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.

This one has been sitting in my apartment for a while now. Decided to try it today because I got a batch of carambola (star fruit) wine started yesterday, and it reminded me of the bottle sitting in the corner... Should be noted that the bottle I have looks completely different from the one shown in the picture.

Appearance: Holy cow, maybe the most carbonated beer I've ever had to pour. Ridiculous - I poured fairly carefully, and there was maybe an inch of beer in the pint glass, and the rest was all foam. After settling down, it expanded to maybe 2.5 inches, and I was able to pour in some more beer. Pale peach (surprise!) in color, champagne like carbonation - copious amounts of bubbles streaming up from the bottom. Rocky white head. Pretty attractive beer, really, but be warned when you're pouring!

Smell: Initially a little offputting. Peach is very present, with some sour apricot and believe it or not a bit of hops. Juicy smelling.

Taste: Slightly sour, very light - almost reminiscent of mineral water. Peach shows up on the front of the palate, apricot at the finish and in the back of your mouth. Somehow manages to avoid being too sweet, despite a lack of much malt or hops character.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation too high - again reminiscent of mineral water.

Drinkability: Not bad for a fruit beer, but I won't be buying this one again. This one goes out to the ladies...

Sits with a lightly hazy, orangish tinged, straw gold colored body in my tulip glass. It is very well carbonated, as many streams of undulating rivulets bubble up through my glass. The carbonation maintains a fluffy, off-white colored head that starts out four-fingers thick. The aroma is quite fruity, with definitely noticeable apricot aromatics. The peach is here as well, but it is hard to differentiate between these two fruits. The fruit aromatics completely dominate the aromatic profile, but if you dig for it, there is a dry, lightly toasted grain character underneath.

Definitely well carbonated, the beer fizzes up into a frothy mass as it first hits my tongue. A quick, yet vigorous, swirl of my tulip glass, and I can no longer get to the beer underneath all of the foam again. This really has a dense, meringue like head that is almost a structural wonder, but I just want some of the beer underneath. A bit of patience finally yields a second sip. It is still pretty well carbonated, but I can now notice the flavors a bit better. Lightly tart and quite dry, it is still quite fruity tasting. Almost floral like in its expression of apricot and peach flavors. This beer is incredibly light, very quaffable, and would be perfect on a hot summer's day. The carbonation only contributes to the perceived lightness of body. I could perhaps use a touch more sweetness, but I wouldn't want much; I have a feeling that this went into the bottle with a touch more sweetness, which is why it is so incredibly carbonated now. Apricot is one of those fruit flavors that I like from time to time, and this certainly is an ejoyable quaff.

An enjoyable fruit beer without the sweetness that pervades most. Apricots are a good choice for this style, in my opinion. Not very clear with a big head and plenty of apricot aroma. Coated the tongue with that "fuzzy" apricot flavor. The second half of the glass had much more aroma than the first, as the beer warmed.
