Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-01-2005

Castlebrite is the first fruit beer to come from Dragonmead. This Apricot Ale uses an apricot puree as well as Pale Wheat malt to bring about this wonderfully refreshing brew. This beer starts with a subtle sweetness and slight apricot flavor, and finishes with a palate-cleansing tartness that will leave you wanting more.

On-tap at Dragonmead. Served in a taster glass.

A - A half-finger of white foam settles to a thin cap and thicker collar, leaving behind a few stray splotches of lace. Hazy straw body.

S - Rich sweet apricot flavors, with light malted wheat and a touch of musty Kölsch character. A bit saccharine, but shockingly good for this style of beer.

T - The taste isn't quite on par with the aroma, but it's still quite enjoyable. Nice apricot sweetness, and a clean pale wheat malt backbone.

M - Zesty carbonation, medium-light body, and a slightly grainy texture. Pretty much what you'd expect from the style.

D - This was actually quite excellent, and it's one of the best fruited wheat beers I've had (although most are quite terrible). Worth trying if you're at Dragonmead, and something that one could consume in large quantities.
