Not many brews get as subjective as a fruit beer. This beer looks, smells, and tastes like an apricot, so Ithaca's delivering on the name, that's for certain. The scent is strong and pervasive, but pleasant enough (if you like apricots, natch); it realls hangs around the nostrils while you're trying to taste the beer. Big fruity flavor with very little beer character; the malts are a supporting act here and the hops apparently called in sick. On the bright side, this was not as sickeningly sweet as some fruit beers can be.
Because there's not too much beer character to lose, this would probably stand up to being served ice cold on a hot summer day.

I'm a major sucker for fruit beer, so I had to try this one. It was my first time at a local bar, and I was waiting for my aunt and uncle to meet me after work, so I ordered this beer with my fries. It was sweet but not too much so- in other words, you could definitely still taste the beer in it. There was a perfect blend of sweetness and yet a tiny bite to it. It was very smooth and amazing when ice cold! If I came across it again I'd definitely go for a second taste.
