Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Order something from Fred. Pours hazy dirty gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of yeasty apricots. Near medium body. The flavor immediately suggests apricot pie. And it still does. So it must be bready/pie crust with some apricot. A bit light on sugar - cause it’s kind of tart. It really makes me recall the pies mom used to make. And those are really old memories. She usually made peach pies. Finishes tart with bready notes, and apricot skin tart. Nice beer.

Growler… Pours murky and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The fruity, grainy bouquet is mainly of pale malts and wheat up front, but the apricots really shine brightly as the beer approaches room temperature. Medium to full-bodied and milky with tender carbonation. The flavor provides a truckload of refreshment as sweet apricots and tart apricot skins meld with crisp wheat. Lengthy, lightly sweet, mildly acidic finish. Kudos to DuffManSW for shipping this growler my way!

Flavors are tart, grainy, fruity, some acidity, apricots, and mild alcohol. Lively bubbles with a dry finish. Nice tartness to this. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a hazy yellow/straw color with a tall white head.
S: I don’t get quite as much fruit as I anticipated. Plenty of wheat and yeast with a light grassy note. The fruit is a bit softer and in the background, but it does provide a nice bit of sweetness.
T: The fruit flavor comes through a bit more, which is nice. Soft apricot and almost white peach flavors on top of sweet wheat and bread. There is a light yeast note, mild grass, and almost no bitterness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Slightly sweet, but still fairly light and refreshing. Much better than Hangar 24’s more popular fruited wheat offering.

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.

Soft fresh earthy apricot aroma. Milky orange with a thin head. The flavor is of soft apricot sweetness, a mild tartness, and a little alcohol. Light carbonation creates a smooth brew. Soft fruit lingers on the palate.
