A - deep reddish amber color.
S - Clear hop notes, with citrus, pine, and of course apricots.
T - Sweet and fruity with a malt foundation, with pronounced hops up front. Dangerously drinkable for a 7% beer.
O - The apricots strangely work to make this ne of my favorite seasonal beers, and I do not normally like fruit beers.

Poured into tulip glass.
A: Pours a clear copper color, nice big white head with good retention on top.
S: Sweet apricots, a little maltiness.
T: Exceptionally smooth, apricots, pine, citrus fruits all come together. Just enough bitterness to balance the malt without being over bitter. Hard to believe its 7%.
M: Medium to full bodied, great carbonation.
O: I didn't expect much from this beer, I expected it to be one sided but that was not the case at all. The hops paired with the apricots quite well and was a well balanced beer for my palate. I'd definitely buy some again if not for me but something that may convert my girlfriend into craft beers.

Pours more of a copper colored body than one would expect from the style, beneath the foamy, off-white head which slowly dissolves to leave a scattered sticky lacing.
The aroma is almost exclusively of sweet fruit and citrus hops. There is already notice of the tart/sweet apricot to follow.
The apricot really comes out in the taste with a more subtle hop presence. There does seem to be a fairly generous malty backbone to assist which seems like a traditional Munich type malt.
Medium carbonation and fuller in body than expected with a semi-tart, semi-sweet finish.
A respectable brew which is certainly highlighted by the apricot which is quite tasty and refreshing but I would like to see slightly more citrus hops for more of a bite to offset the tart.
