I brewed this on my wife's request and she's happy with the outcome. Adding the pureed un-sulfured to the secondary started a second fermentation, which I'm sure increased the ABV - but that's not accounted for in the calculation. The apricot puree added a nice full apricot undertone, and the extract provided a more discernible flavor. This ale is a little on the sweet side, but not overly sweet, and is easy to drink.
