Bottle at beer festival. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Smells freshly of hops, green soap, dry fruits and apricot. Wheat beer sweetness with a dry finish. Ok

tfredvik (1150) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Cloudy orange body with a bit small, white head that leaves some lacing. Rather strong aroma of generic fruits, apricot, apricot pits, alcohol(!), some tartness and traces of wild yeast (could it be lightly infected?). Moderate aroma of generic fruits, citrus, wheat and yeast. Also a alcoholic sting that I suspect comes from the apricot purée that has been fermenting in the bottle. I got exactly the same thing in my homebred Nektaripa: when it was fresh the nectarine shone brightly, but after a couple of months in the bottle the fruits were vaguer and instead I got unclean notes of alcohol. The taste is light sweet with a light acidity in the finish, along with a light apricot pit bitterness. Medium to light body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. Not that successful.
[33 cl bottle, batch 110, enjoyed 18 moths before BB date, from Vinmonpolet Arendal, courtesy of my dad

Palme (3454) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Shared 0.33l bottle from #110. This is a light clouded yellow golden looking one with a nice white lasting islandy head. There’s a nice slightly sweetish wheat nose here with mild oranges, some citrus and a little bit hoppy grass. Think it’s a nice nose. It has a slightly acidic thing in the taste. Feels quite lively on the bubbles and it has a light oily feeling in the mouth. Really lightdrinkable and easy to like. Quite grassy, and it has a slightly pungent mild mealy aftertaste. Light to drink. Everyone around the table enjoyed this. 30.05.2014

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, big frothy white head. Smell of wheat, yeast esters, some malts and fruits, maybe even apricots? Moderate sweet, apricots, nice fruity flavor, some flour and wheat. Moderate bitter finish. Quite boring, but fairly drinkable

Oransje med lavt skum. Aroma av aprikos, malt og annen frukt. Smaken er frisk, med klar aprikosprofil. Også humle og malt. Tynn/medium konsistens. Mildt sur.

Finn (4263) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Lys gulgrønn. Uklar. Middels høyt kritthvitt skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. God aroma av sitrus + annen frukt. Aprikos? Smaken er syrlig frukt som blir litt bitter etter hvert. Avslutter tørt. Et godt hveteøl.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2014
Medium white head. Hazy pale yellow body with little floaties. Fruity mealy aroma, kind of vague. Sweet mealy apricot taste with salty spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish apricot and flour aftertaste with salty tropical fruit notes. A bit heavy and dense, but no real off flavours. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Straw yellow. Low dense shiny white head. A nice touch of tropical fruits to the nose. If you say apricot, oh yes! Mid-bodied and smooth. Taste is fruity with a fine acididy. The fruit flalvor emerge well, but taste is like yellow fruits in general. A light mouthdrying bitterness underneath. Lingering fruity, light bitter endnotes. A very well crafted fruit beer. [Bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk]

Would have to classify the color as apricot. Well fruity aroma. Awesome taste of apricots. Little bit hoppy. Easy on the throat. Nice carbonation. Some sediments.
