I want to know too. HWMOM and I are looking to brew something summery soon, and this sounds like a good one.

It was light and refreshing however I would use 3/4 to 1/2 what the recipe calls for w/ apricots.
A little yeasty with a viscous mouth feel and a little tart citrus finish.

But you must LOVE apricots to really enjoy this. That is why I recommend using less apricot than what is called for.
