3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lists itself on the bottle as a “wheat-wine style ale brewed with fresh apricots”
Pours a light golden hazed ale with scatter surface white foams. Smells of wheat, pepper, a little sugar, some hints of apricot blossoms (rather than the meaty fruit I do so love) and a hint of almost American yeast. Pleasant, but simple nose. Flavor is nice and fruity now, a good hit of apricots, very sweet, however. A little bit of the wheat character in the back. Full bodied with low carb and a watery finish. Of the wheatwines I’ve had, this one is pretty decent, but nonetheless, this just may not be my style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap. Very attractive hazy orange and yellow color with a white head. Light tart, slight apricot, and clean, light grain in the aroma. Taste is very clean with light tart fruit (hard to pick out apricot), dry grain, and perhaps some residual lemon. Not quite a fruit beer but certainly not a hefeweizen. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap. Light sweet aroma. Very cloudy almost milky, pale yellow, light head with persistent lacing. Tart fruity taste of apricots. Thin feel and high carbonation goes with the fruit well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Kinetic Brewing Company. Cloudy bright yellow-gold pour with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, apricot and herbs. Medium body with flavors of yeast, apricots and bready malt. The finish is fruity with an apricot and yeast aftertaste. Decent all around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale straw, extremely hazy, thick, moderate to large frothy white head, spotty lacing. Fruity nose, seems like Apricot or even immature peach. Not as bright as I was hoping tho. Big wheaty mouthfeel, sweet, soft fruitiness that at this time seems a bit non-descript. It doesn’t scream Apricot to me. However, as it warms it becomes a bit more apparent. Because of its big wheatiness, this one is fairly full bodied. Backside is clean, lingering Apricot, albeit a bit subtle. Very surprised to see this is 7.2% as it doesn’t drink like it at all. Thanks Ron for the bottle!
