3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On Tap @ brewery. Clear golden color with bright white head. The sweet apricot fruit in the aroma mixed seamlessly with the sweet malt. The flavor is decidedly fruity from the apricot. Again like the aroma the sweet malts used in this beer blend well with the sweet fruit flavor. This brew was constructed to appease the none beer dinking crowd.

Tap at brewery in Alpine, CA: Clear yellow, citrusy malty nose along with a rustic sweet flavor and a malty body. Nicer flavor, some citrus and light spices. Better. Creamy like those apricot cream bars from the freezer section.

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

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draft: Alpine Beer Company in Alpine, CA) This is Willy conditioned with apricots, and it’s a good chick beer, brewed for those who claim they don’t like the taste of beer. It’s moderately fruity, apricot and peach mostly, both in the nose and flavor. The flavor of the wheat comes out later toward the finish as the apricot fades away a bit. It has the same dark yellow color and the same off-white head as the basic Willy, and is equally light bodied, again as required for the style. Not my type of beer, not bad for what it is.
