2.13/5 rDev -40.8%
On-tap at Strong Ale
A: The pour is a clear golden color with perhaps some notes of orange to it and a white head.
S: This really just smells like a sweet, high alcohol lager, or even a malt liquor. Grape and apple juice with perhaps a touch of sweet apricots, but it's really more "corny" than anything.
T: Flavor is similarly sweet, almost to the point of cloying. The apricot flavor is there a little bit, but it does little more than make this beer more sugary and overbearingly sweet. Pretty much just tastes like white grape juice, apple juice, honey, and corn.
M: The body is medium and sort of syrupy. The carbonation is moderate at best.
D: This was just no good, I have to say. I am unsure as to whether this was the original batch or a re-brew, but either way, I was not a fan.

On tap @ provisions
Look: Golden yellow in color and translucent and a thin bubbly head
Smell: Sugary apricot sweetness
Taste: Again its a bit sugary with apricot in the background
Mouthfeel: Thin body and ample carbonation
Overall: After having two beers today brewed with Apricots I have come to the conclusion that Apricot does not belong in beer PERIOD

Quite orange amber in the small tulip at Pizza Port in OB. Strange fruit, I call it. Salty and sweet with an odd syrupy flavor. Sharp and heading towards acidity. Lots of apricot, finally, in the nose. A strange smoky, cardboardy hint. After finishing most of it, I took a sniff of the nearly empty glass- weirdest smell of old fruit and the gym.
I wouldn't call it very drinkable, but it's interesting at least. Not to mention, an alternative to the nuclear hop war. It really doesn't seem that strong, not did it feel alcoholic either. A friendlier version of this, or one less strong with Saison yeast might be more enjoyable.
