Bottled as Dry Dock Apricot Blonde. Picked up a bottle as soon as it hit the shelves at the local store, the guy stocking said I bought the first one there - yes! Anyhow, on to the review:

A - Poured from brown 22oz bomber to a pint glass. The beer pours a cloudy dark deep yellow/golden color. Nice 1.5 finger white bubbly head with excellent retention and lacing throughout.

S - Wow, apricots! The beer smells heavenly. I can't think of how it could get any better. The nice pleasant fruity sweetness of the apricots dominate. Blends well with the yeast, and malty biscuity background of the beer. You can basically taste the beer through the nose.

T - Very similar to the nose with a dominant force of apricot immediately. It provides a nice fruity sweetness and imparts slight flavors of apples and bananas as well. Very flavorful. Mild bitterness. The biscuity malt provides a nice bakdrop for the fruit. Finishes crisp and clean.

M - Thick, medium bodied. Well Carbonated.

O - Another excellent beer from Dry Dock. Perfect for a summer day, it is a Summer Release as the bottle states. I've never been a fan of Apricot brews until this one. Outstanding.

Bomber labeled "Apricot Blonde" Summer Seasonal: Ale Brewed with Apricot Puree.

Served cold into a goblet, this beer has a hazy golden orange color with thick white head.

The aroma is spectacular! If you love apricots, you'll probably spend as much time sniffing the beer as you do sipping it.

Flavor is really solid as well. A sweet and mild malt backbone is there simply to provide a stage upon which the apricots to perform. Very little bitterness but not cloyingly sweet either. Very drinkable, especially considering it's a fruit beer.

Mouthfeel is light in body and carbonation. Reasonably well balanced but fairly sweet. No hops to speak of, really.

Overall a really well done beer. I will have to seek out another bottle before the Summer seasonals go away.
