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.

Golden and cloudy wheat beer with fresh mixed-in apricot. Incredibly refreshing and tasty anytime brew. Lingering apricot aftertaste. Can stick with this all day. Crisp like a chardonnay.

On tap at the brewery served in a 5oz glass. Pour was a clear golden yellow with a solid show of lacing. Nose was has huge apricot and sweet malts. Taste was apricot,plums,malts and light hops. The apricots were good but a little overwhelming.

On tap at the brewery as party of beerquest 2.5. Lots of awesome apricot juice taste... I think itís better than the Peche which is somewhat comparable.

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

Draft at the Brewpub with Andrew, Brendan and big boy PJ. Pours a clear body with no head. Aroma is straight delicious Apricot. Fresh apricot pretty much dominated the flavor here, as expected, but I canít pinpoint what makes this one of the best apricot fruit beers Iíve ever tried.

Draft @ Six N Save. Wow, who would have thought I could get a Bullfrog draft on the western side of PA ?!? Coloring is just like a glass of apple cider, small white head that dissapears almost immediately to leave a wisp on the top. Aroma is a very subdued apricot and wheat. Flavor is at first wheat and then a really great touch of apricot on the finish, though itís not cloying or sweet, just enough to enjoy it, but not get sick of it. Finish is dry.

On tap at Bullfrog. Pours a hazy brown with a small white head. Soft apricot, wheat and toast. Gently sweet, light apricot, not artificial or cloying. Nice malt smoothness, long soft gently bitter finish.

Draft, at Bullfrog Brewpub on 7/5/09. Pours a clear copper color, topped with a small white head. Aroma is a bit subdued, wheat is the highlight, but there are some hints of real apricot in the background. Wheat is the dominant flavor as well, but the apricot is a little more evident than in the aroma. There are notes of grain, a little earth, and white pepper in the background. Finish was a tad astringent. Better than I expected.

Draught at the brewery. Creamy texture, crisp and light up front, then more syrupy and slightly sour in the back. Very good real apricot flavor, rind-like and slightly sour, with a fresh and muddy wheat flavor. Appearance is slightly cloudy, light orange in color with a frothy white head. Creamy wheat and apricot fruit aromas, very well made overall. I enjoyed this one on my visit, but considering how low the other scores are, I may have been suffering from palate fatigue.
