Pours a clouded yellow gold, left a minimal head that dissipated quickly.

Smells very much like apricot.

Tastes like apricot, some tartness to the flavor, which is reminiscent of cactus pear fruit.
No complexity, but doesn't take away from it at all, a refreshing offering.

Light bodied, crisp, moderate carbonation, easy to drink.

Fruity. A great Spring or Summer beer you could drink every day.

I like apricot nectar for making an especially scrumptious fuzzy navel drink...

Poured from the stubby into a shaker. A pretty hard pour produces about an inch of froth. The beer is a slightly hazy amber-golden with moderate carbonation.

Strong apricot on the nose, continuing into the flavor proper, with a hint also of orange and lemon. An earthy hop bitterness suggests an apricot stone.

I don't like drinking more than one of these at a time, but it's a decent enough beer. The apricot flavor doesn't taste contrived and the residual sweetness is more apparent than real. I could see this as a refreshing hot weather beer.

This is an overly sweet fruit/vegetable beer that is just too much for me. It's only suitable for drinking very sparsely. I didn't really like it but a lot of people do.

Almost like a dry apricot cider. Nose is sweet. Taste is less so but still very fruity. Not a subtle apricot. It is very much there. If you like apricot and lighter beers you will love this.

Nice Apricot smell and taste. This would be a great beer if it wasn't for the horrible bitter aftertaste on the backend.

Great beer for a summer day by the pool. Easy to drink with a light apricot taste and a smooth finish.

VERY fruity. The apricot flavor is a bit overwhelming. Not terrible overall though. A bit hinting of banana and belgian-y yeast flavors.
