3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber, no date, $6.99 picked up this morning from Olive Tree Market in OB. Pours a little hazier than their Orange Wheat, with a tighter white head, fading to a thick ring and miniscule film. Definite apricot and wheat in the nose, just a touch tart--fairly less than the Orange Wheat. Flavor follows suit, though the malts do seem richer and add more depth, due to the alcohol. Semi-dry finish that isn’t as crisp as the Orange Wheat, bitterness peaked at a 1-2. Low carbonation with a medium body. Not quite as refreshing as the Orange Wheat, but a good beer in its own right.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow color in the glass. Aroma of fruit and apricots explode from the glass. Taste is more apricots and a blend of other fruits. I’m not big on fruit beer’s but this is a very good blend and an excellent summer beer.

Bomber from Windy City. Sweet fruit and wheat dominate the aroma of this brew. Slick wheat flavoring along with a little spice and a touch of sweetness from the apricots.

22oz bomber poured into a large wheat beer glass. Pours a cloudy yellow with minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is apricots, yeast, lemon. Taste is refreshing apricot, lemon, some yeast. If this weren’t 7.2% abv I think it would be the ideal summer beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours cloudy light orange with a small white head. The aroma is bready with apricots and oranges. The flavor is light and effervescent with apricots, wheat and a light tartness with more bread in the finish. Amazingly light and refreshing for the high ABV. No sweetness. I really like this brewer. Underrated in my opinion.
