COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Try our spin on the traditional wheat ale. Alley Kat has managed to turn wheat ale into a fruity delight with natural apricot extracts.

Description
Aprikat is based on North American style wheat ales. A great wheat ale stands out with a brilliantly clear and crisp taste. For Aprikat, we add a natural apricot extract to produce a nice (but not over-sweet) taste with a fresh aroma and big fruity finish.

Notes
Aprikat is brewed with 50% malted wheat and fermented with our house ale yeast. Aprikat has a medium carbonation that gives a light, crisp straw-coloured pour. 12°

I swear I rated this forever ago... thanks ratebeer, your app sucks. One of the first beers that got me interested in the craft scene, this is a very drinkable ale with fresh apricot flavour. My tastes now find it a touch sweet, but it’s really good nonetheless.

On tap at Alley Kat, pours a clear dull golden with a small white head. Nose brings out fresh apricots. Flavour is light, with faded apricot. Could use some more oomph, but it’s very clean and drinkable. Decent.

Mild apricot and grain smell. Gold with small white head. Medium carbonation with a wheat and fruit palate. Not pne of the better apricots but itll suffice.

Quite good actually as does not overpower with the flavour, no lingering aftertaste or uneccesary sharp notes.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Sample at the Picaroons Brewers Bash. Hazy orange colour. Aroma and taste were pretty strong dried apricot with a little wheat backing it up. Decent summer fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

simonblaine (403) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours orange. Aroma of apricots, fruit, wheat. Taste is very much apricot at first, leads to the taste of a weaker ale. Good for what it is, a summer fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Pours a clear bright yellow, with little head amounting to a nice ring of white. Aroma consists of sweet apricot, wheat and pale malts. Carbonation is high, flavour is mostly sweet creamy apricot, followed by a light wheat and pale malt profile. Maltier than i remember, decent fruit beer. Funny thing is this is this was my gateway into craft beer, thanks alley kat!
