A: poured an orange brown with yellow highlights with a half finger of head and left decent lacing on the glass.

S: the apricots really do run the show on the aroma with faint wheat and malt notes; fruity aroma for sure.

T: the taste is of candy apricots with a pretty decent malt backbone but doesn't have a whole lot of wheat charater goin on which is not a bad thing for me.

M: the brew was medium body with a good amount of carbonation that had a sweet malty and creamy finish.

D: drank surprisingly very good and wasn't overwhelming on the sweetness. I honestly really enjoy this beer, so all you fruit beer haters can suck it pimp.

Pours a beautiful apricot color, hazy with a nice, creamy head and good lacing.
Smell is sweet, apricot and malt. A well-balanced nose.
Taste is malt, apricot and light hops.
Mouthfeel is smooth with a light effervescence. Medium bodied.
Drinkability is quite high, would gladly quaff this offering again. Again, balance is good but I would have liked more complexity. Apricot, along with blueberry and peach, are such subtle flavors that they rarely get thru to the final product. This is happily not the case here.

On tap at the brewpub in Eureka.

Pour is a hazy, medium amber. Very fine head and sticky lacing.

Aroma: Fruity, with only vague apricot, and hints of biscuits and bananas.

Flavor: Soft fruits and light wheat bread.

Feel: medium-light bodied with crisp, medium-high carbonation level. Semi-dry finish.

O: OK, and with restrained fruitiness.

A - Apricot hue, hazy, with a wispy head and spotty lace.

S - The nose is very fruity (apricots mostly), and is almost potpourri like, but is fairly nice.

T - The taste is quite fruity and yet it is also rather dry, offering a simple pale grain and mineral water base with lots of apricot lingering on the finish.

M - The feel is watery and lightly carbonated which happens to serve this beer quite well.

O - A (better-than) decent fruit beer, and very refreshing.

Clear, light gold colour with a small short lasted off-white head. Nice lacing.

Big, pungeant apricot aroma. Very light tartness.

Smooth light malt sweetness with a hint of grain. Good apricot flavour which is a touch over the top but still good.

Medium body with moderately low carbonation. Good.

A solid effort with a good if slightly over the top apricot flavour. I’d like a little more wheat character to shine through.
