3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

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)

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.
