2.63/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12-ounce bottle into a SA pint glass.

A: Pours a very light, golden yellow color with almost no head. Slightly hazy, and no real carbonation to be seen.

S: Smell is definitely of apricot. No hops at all, or other spices. Just that sweet apricot smell.

T: Sweet apricot, somewhat syrupy. No other strong malt or hop flavors. The fruit is a little dull, buttery even. Has a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste.

M: This fruit/veg. is light-medium bodied, which might please some, but I wouldn't drink this for its richness anyway. Whenever I think it's crisp, which it is, I can't call it refreshing.

D: I was good to try one and call it a day with this brew. I don't know if I'm not an apricot fan, but I'm certainly not a fan of this Ithica offering.

If it were an apricot I wanted, I'd think twice before getting this again. Particularly if there were a Dogfish Head Aprihop Wheat or Seadog Apricot available.
