I wrote: "This Widmer Brothers Hopside Down has a great apricot-like smell. Well, maybe not apricot, but some sort of fruit. This is not to be confused with the smell of so-called fruity beers. In any case, I like the taste it gives off when it hits the tongue on each sip, but it seems to be leaving a bitter aftertaste. In fact, a very strong bitter aftertaste." 6:40PM ET
