Draft. Arborfest 2008. Lush apricot aroma with traces of cantaloupe and honeydew. Pours a cloudy bright light orange. Flavor of creamy wheat esters and apricot marmalade. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. A dusty, dry hay-like finish distracts from the simple and refreshing qualities of the beer.

3 oz. pour, on tap at the brewhouse. This was the seventh of 9 Fitger’s beers I tried on 4-4-08. Aroma of apricot in all forms (fresh, canned, nectar). Sweet, honey smell. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold. Tastes exactly like the name implies: apricot nectar crossed with a light American wheat ale. It tastes fine, but apricot nectar alone would be better. Apricot skin flavor as well. Light body. Smooth and lively in the palate.

sample at pub. A nice mixture of grainy wheat and peach. The apricot doesn’t overtake the beer but sits in the background.

Had this one on draught as part of the sampler flight at the brewery in Duluth, Minnesota. Cloudy, medium golden pour with a thick white head, sweet apricot and peach nose, very sweet and bready throughout. Very good, especially for the style!

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Hazy yellow. Glorious apricot--I love it when the fruit really shines through in a authentic (not artificial) way. Fresh, yummy, drinkable. Fizzy. I’m such a sucker for a well-made fruit beer. (on tap at brewpub)

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Cloudy yellow. Apricot aroma. Sweet Turkish apricot flavor. Light orange as well. Well carbonated. A decent fruit beer.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the Fitgers Brewhouse in Duluth, MN, pours a hazy golden yellow brew with a fast disolving white head. Sparce lacing and sticky. Aroma has a nice balance of wheat apricots, some powdery dust, and grassy hops. Taste is light body, carbonated, smooth and sweet. Finish has a nice wheat/weizen taste and lightly bitter.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2007
On tap at the Fitgers Brewpub in Duluth MN. Excellent apricot nose. Sweet with a hazy golden body. Faint white head. Apricot dominates a faint wheat taste in the body.
