While I find Dunedin's brews a bit hoppy for my taste, this one suprised me. Overflowing at the first pop of the cap, it poured a lemon-orange color with a beautiful, thick head.

Apricot baby food was my first thought for the smell and truly honest to the scent of apricots. I didn't notice much peach in the smell, but I was rewarded later with the taste.

Again, apricot was my first flavor, followed by a nicely balanced hoppiness, and finally the taste of fresh, cling peaches. It had a nice citrus kick.

The mouthfeel was crisp and very dry. I don't know how quenching this would be on a hot day.

If you're in the mood for a fruity beer, I think it's worth a try. I enjoyed it and will drink it again. (720 characters)

Sampled straight from the BIF fof Hell. Big brown bottle, no freshness date spotted.

Beer almost explodes out of the bottle on first popping of the cap. Allowing the beer to settle I poured almost the full bomber into a pint glass, lost the rest to foam.

Beer is deeply hazy orange yellow with a tall white head that collapses pretty quickly with the lips.

Aroma is a large dry apricot aroma with a medicinal earthy peach behind it.

Flavor makes with a sharp acidic fruit character and a spicy hop bite that compliments nicely with the sweetness apparent in the brew.

Still too much of a medicinal chemical peach flavor in the brew.

Tasty though. I'll give them that, but not the best effort of the brewery. (726 characters)

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. (816 characters)

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. (454 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Presentation: 16 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Hazed orange beige with a tiny bubbled lace that draws a little retention.

Smell: Big fruity aroma of peaches and apricots, yeast and wheat malt in the back.

Taste & Mouthfeel: The upfront crispness holds a refreshing quality in the palate. Very light on the hops with only a faint astringent grain to hold the sweetness at bay. Evident fruit flavors are at the appropriate levels. Ends with a yeasty note and more grain.

Notes: A half decent fruit beer, a tad bland in the malt department with a drawn-out graininess and a lackluster fruit flavor. A good try but there are better fruit beers out there. (684 characters)

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... (735 characters)

This hazy yellow wheat beer appears to be unfiltered. It sports a small but retentive white head. The aroma is light and gives just a small bit of fruit notes, mixed with, perhaps, some slight hop note.

The flavor is a delicate apricot fruit taste, so delicate, in fact, that might wife could not pick it up. The feel is of a perky and sprtizy light nature. Good drinkability for a fruit beer. (396 characters)

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. (354 characters)
