Bottle from kasey, thanks! This one pours cloudy golden yellow with am ally white head. Nose is grainy, toasty, fruity, light citrus, sweet fruit and maybe some spiciness. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests. Again grainy malts, spices, fruits, toasted malts and spices either from yeast or malt or whatever. Evidently that’s an apricot flavor of fruit that I’m tasting. Medium body. Medium low carbonation. Full and alternatively flavored brew which makes it interesting. Glad to have tried this one.

The appearance of his beer is amazing and the true color of ripe apricots. However the taste was very disappointing, as I picked up no apricot favors in this wheat beer. I will stick to drinking the Samuel Smith Apricot in the future.

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.

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.
