My first venture into the world of fruit brews. It might be that I just don't have the taste for it yet, I'm not giving up on these, but I didn't like it. The peach flavor was stronger than I expected an that made it taste like a juice box. Poured a nice color and the smell was amazing. If you know your fruit beers, go for it, it seems very popular. On the other hand, if your new, you might want to stay clear of this one.

a. Cloudy yellow appearance with a finger of head. Lacing on glass. Cloudy.

s. Fresh apricot smell that is better than when poured from a bottle.

t. Again, this beer takes on a life of it's own when on tap. Fresh, outstanding apricot taste layered into the beer.

m. For a wheat, it has nice body. Although the head was small, the carbonation persisted.

o. This is an outstanding apricot. Having had several, I think this is the best of the bunch.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Odor: Apricot and Pear.

Pour: Straw color, Small head, but thick lace. Unfiltered and noticed that the yeast had pooled at the bottom of the bottle. Beer seems to have had been on the shelf for a while as the yeast did not move. Might want to check your bottle before you buy

Taste: Heavy Apricot extract taste, maybe apples as well. No Hop flavor. Seems they have done this to make the fruit stand out more. Beer is very smooth, no bitterness whatsoever. Almost a buttery taste on finish.

This beer was decent for what it is. I almost feel like I'm drinking a wine cooler as they have removed any characteristics of an beer from this. You can taste beer but I would liken it to the most ultra-light beer you ever had. Not bad drink but I expected a beer.

12oz bottle with no discernible freshness date. Sort of hazy yellow, lots of lacing but a filmy head. Aroma is mild apricots and wheat. Flavor is wheat and mold apricots, easy to drink but really falls short in comparison to Dry Dock's apricot ale. I'd take that beer over this one every day of the week.
