Unfiltered. Steady foamy white head. Insipid body, big artificial apricot taste and aroma. Too sweet, lacks balance. A taster is plenty.

Included in a sampler at the brewpub. I usually don’t like these fruity ones but they do a good job with this. One of my favorites out of the sampler in fact.

Nice fresh apricot and other citrus notes, bold apricot taste, not bad for a style I typically don't enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at Fitgers in Duluth. A tasty beer. Sweet light, taste of fresh apricots and hefeweizen. I would like more of this.

ryanfolty (1780) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Date: August 11, 2011 Mode: Draft Source: Fitgers Brewhouse, Duluth, MN Appearance: Semi-opaque hazy yellow with some head and lacing. Aroma: Grainy and sweet/apricot. Flavor: Consistent with aroma, carbonated, light bodied and apricot finish. Other: Surprised this is classified as a fruit beer, but either way it was good on a warm summer day.

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Pours hazy yellow with white head, aroma has notes of sweet jammy apricot, pear and white grape, with a touch of banana and spice. Taste was slightly spicy but was pretty much dominated with apricot sweetness, some slight fruity and banana notes, finishing sweet.

kbutler1 (1345) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draft at Autumn Brew Review. Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow color with a nice white head. The aroma is very fruity with the apricot and then also has some wheat type notes as well. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty sweet up front with some lingering bitterness as well. Really nice drinker. I could drink this one on a nice hot summer day.

sthlm (1224) - Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2010
[On-tap at Fitger’s] Pours amber with almost no head. Aroma is almost all apricot. The taste is apricot again, along with peach rings, and then a blast of malt. Medium mouthfeel, decent length finish. An alright fruit beer, but not that great. That having been said, I’ll probably give it another shot some time.
