(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- This beer is a slow gusher with a thick spongy antique white head that breaks up into a bright yellow body with an orange hue. There are strands of bubbles trailing to the surface.

S- The dry soft bright tartness has a light plastic aroma to it with a fruity note coming through as it warms. There is a dry jammy fruit finish that stays a bit soft but does grow as it opens.

T- The dry slightly tart unripe stone fruit note leads to a dry green finish. There is a juicy tartness lingers for a bit with some dry field corn flavors coming through.

M- The light mouthfeel has a big scrubbing fizz in the finish.

O- This beer has a light base with a fruit flavor that is a bit artificial.

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.

A - Apricot Goddess' wonderful clarity allows the streaming carbonation to be seen through the orange-hued goldenrod beer. It's short-lived white head speckles the glass in plenty of lacing though!

S - Soft apricot and wheat frolic through the aroma with trailing notes of malty sweetness and balancing undertones of earthy hops.

T - Smooth pilsner malt underlines tender apricots and soft wheat with just enough sweetness as to elevate the beer without becoming too cloying.

M - Despite much of it streaming towards the head, Apricot Goddess' carbonation is smooth, gently providing a prickle on the tongue following the soft wheat body and faintly sweet finish that's nicely punctuated by tart apricot.

O - Apricot Goddess is a refreshing and drinkable fruit beer that skips the big sweetness for a mellow and playful combination of wheat and tart and tender apricot.

This beer basically resembles an apricot Berliner Weisse. Tom Porter has stated it's an Amber Ale base with apricot puree added during fermentation and concentrate added after filtration.

Bright orange with a slight bit of haze, frothy white cap of foam, steadily rising trails of carbonation. Delicate lacing sticks to the glass in an elaborate pattern.

Fuzzy tart apricot aroma, wheaty and minerally, a slight lactic funk to it.

Tart and fruity, a nicely quenching surprise. Simple and clean, a light minerally wheat and malt base with natural unsweetened apricot fruit flavor. Only mildly tart, with plenty of grains from the base beer coming through.

This is an innovative new seasonal from Lake Louie, that harkens back to earlier days when Prairie Moon was spiked with lacto, which developed a pleasant tartness over time.

Nothing special but for an easy summer drinking beer, this works; especially when it is from a local favorite brewery like Lake Louie. The apricot taste isn't overpowering but the fruit taste is just enough to make it a refreshing summer brew. This is a beer I may not usually buy again but since it is from Lake Louie, I probably will pick up another six pack.

Bought a single 12oz bottle and poured into my Duvel tulip. Unable to find anything on the breweries website if this is a new seasonal or will only be brewed one time. Unsure of ABV, but probably around 5%

A - A light copper orange with a nice 2 finger head that dissipated slowly and left a ring. Quite a bit of lacing on my tulip.

S - Pretty strong smell of apricot, but it doesn't smell like a fresh apricot would. Kind of odd and artificial with some lemon zest.

T - Taste is kind of apricot fruit with a slight bit of lemon tart. At first I didn't know what to think, but I kind of enjoyed it.

M - Decent amount of carbonation and a dry finish.

O - An interesting brew and nothing like I have had before so I find it difficult to describe. I'm not sure I would purchase it again, but I would drink it if offered on a warm summer day as it is refreshing. I give credit to Lake Louie for trying something different from their normal beers.
