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.

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.

Faintly hazy yellow color. Small off white head. Lightly carbonated. Light aroma of apricots, wheat. Apricot up front but light in flavor. Slightly tart and wheat through middle, sweet tart finish. Light body, light ethanol.
Overall light and refreshing.

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.
