I found this on Bellport Beer's expanded tap unit today, and though I tasted this at the brewery a few months ago, I wanted to see if it had updated or changed.

The copper-gold ale poured well with a fragrant head of apricots and malt into my tall shaker pint. I inhaled the aroma a few times and guessed this would be great with fresh heros containing ham and swiss cheese.

The first taste invited the second with ease as the creamy wheat of the base seemed as if it was topped with apricot frosting. The slight dryness on the end suggested there were some hops hiding in the mix, but their names escaped me as I polished off the growler easily.

This is one of the easiest drinking beers or introductory craft beers with training wheels that I can think of. I am honored to know that this local product and it's designers as they have made a splash on Long Island and the rippling news of their initial success have inspired other local brewers to go pro.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving wisps of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of apricots are present in the nose; these become prominent once the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of apricots and has slight hints of sweetness from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I'm not a big fan of blonde ales, but I really enjoyed this one as the aromas and flavors of apricots kept it from being bland. The lighter body nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink, and I could see this as being a good beer for the beach or the pool on a hot summer day.
