Thanks to my friend and brewer Rob for this one. Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle with no date code visible into a pint glass and get one finger of head.

A: Pours a clear golden color with one finger of head that dissipates quickly to leave a heavy ring around the edge of my glass. Lacing is little to zero.

S: Smells like malt and fresh apricots.

T: Very fruity from start to finish. Tastes like apricots.

M: Medium-bodied and medium-carbonated. It goes down easy.

O: I think it is a good fruit beer. It tastes exactly what it is supposed to taste like. That being said: this is not a beer that I would gravitate towards. However, I have learned that having a beer party where there will be several people who are not beer drinkers or women that are not really beer drinkers; fruit beers are a must. I would have this one on hand then.

Pours a cloudy orange color. Smell is pretty much all apricot as expected. Taste is similar to the smell, fruity taste. No bitterness or hop presence detectable. Fair carbonation, crispy after taste. It's a little better than I expected it to be, not bad for a fruit style beer.

I am drinking this beer during this review.

If you like Apricots, go for it! It tastes like them and smells like em too! Feel free to jump in. Both feet, no shorts or shirt.

I digress, it is a good Ale. Pros - Easy to drink, gets ya going a little, hint of apricots, well done.

Cons - I wish the taste of apricots was a little stronger. Just a light poke on my taste buds with apricot is not enough. I wish they had gone with a more powerful taste.

Overall, Worth it. Please enjoy one and think for yourself.

I first had this beer when one of my nephews and I did a tasting of about 14 beers. It was the only one we both liked. I loved it and he said "this would be great on a hot day" (which, in NC, is common).

This beer looks beautiful. It's sudsy and peachy colored. In a sense, it doesn't look real. It looks like a high dollar TV ad that has been heavily doctored up.

The taste is great. It's as peachy as it is apricot...y(?). And, as my nephew suggested, it is exactly the type of beer you'd want to drink 12-15 of on a beautiful summer day after frolicking in the outdoors.

For some, it might get too peachy after a while. It also might be a little too carbonated for some (it feels a little like Mountain Dew, at times). It's really purely subjective if either is too much, or just right for you.

Poured into a frosty mug. Hazy amber orange appearance. Head stayed for a little while. Smelled like apricots and sweet malt. Maybe a touch of seltzer. Went down exceptionally smooth. Mouthfeel was buttery and smooth, ended refreshing. Just the right amount of malt and sweetness. Almost everything was right here. Definite apricot. reminds me of apricot candy without being artificial or non-beer like. Great beer on tap!
