COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Starting with a beautiful aroma of apricots, this beer is fruity, crisp and naturally cloudy from the wheat. The finish is dry with a lingering flavor of apricots and malted wheat that will leave you asking for more.

Pours a pale orange (should I say apricot?) with a bit of haze a tiny white head. The smell is a bit of apricot alongside some dry wheat. After all the terrible fruit wheat beers I had on a roadtrip this summer, a nice, authentic fruit-infused wheat beer is really nice. Taste is apricot with some wheat dryness; light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Good drinkability, especially for a fruit beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-11-2010

On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a minimal head. Low visible carbonation. Sweet apricot aroma dominates with a touch of grassy wheat. Syrupy apricit flavor, something akin to the syrup that they can fruit coctail in. Some actual wheat peeks thru on the finish. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel with an intense effervescence on the tongue as the beer rolls around in the mouth. Humm, apricot wheat. About as good as I expected. One for the non-beer drinking ladies.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium sized creamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish and a touch nutty with a faint apricot note. The flavor was dryish, nutty and bready with faint apricot underneath. Medium finish of bread and apricot. Medium body. Ok.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2006
From growler during the sweet Steelers victory over the Colts. Mild sweet malt aroma with good apricot aromatics. Fruity dusty hops. Perfumy and some carbonic gaseousness. Hazy amber gold liquid with thin off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light spicy and dry apricot skin. Malty sweetness with bitter nutty fruit skin finish. Hoppy resins, a little chalky. Notes of vanilla and cherry wood. A little harsh at the end with dusty wheaty flavor.

LilBeerDoctor (3409) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear light yellow with a small white head. Aroma of apricot (jam-like), very jammy. Flavor of more apricot with a weak, watery palate. Ok, but I’d like a better backbone.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2011
Pours cloudy with yeasty film in the apricot. Not a ton of aroma on the nose and not a lot of wheat on the tongue. Has a bit of bitterness in the finish which is the only interesting thing about it.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Draft. Opaque sandy color, nose of heavy apricot and only minor wheat. Minor hop and pepper jazz up the flavor, but it’s still heavy on the apricot and there is more wheat in the flavor, very, very robust wheat. Moderate bodied, slightly sticky. Too heavy in the wheat and apricot, and neither is delicate or intricately balanced.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Draft @ Bullfrog. Pours a hazy, peachy golden color; light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Basic, sweet apricot syrup in the aroma, without being overly sweet. Medium mouthfeel: chewy apricot syrup is the most prominent note; average carbonation; mostly syrup, with a touch of soft, dry wheatiness and residual sweetness. Medium finish: soft wheat husks and lingering sweetness.
