3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Taster at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow gold color with a small white head. The nose is distinctly fruity with mangoes and apricots. The taste is similar with a very strong apricot flavor up front, way in the back are some wheat and bready biscuit notes. The palate is light but effective with lively carbonation. Finishes long with lingering apricots. Overall: Very tasty deviation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery in August 2009.
Poured a light yellow with a bit of an apricot-colored tint to it. A good amount of lacing. The aroma’s first scent is straight-up apricot, although underneath some of the typical characteristics of an American Pale Wheat Ale kick in. The taste is quite similar, with the apricot being the dominant taste. I really liked what they did with this one, and would love to taste this sort of apricot on other styles as well, maybe a berliner weiss with it. The overall body was light, and the drinkability was excellent.
Serving type: on-tap
