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.

Nice fresh fruit aroma - like you’re in the field. Medium bodied and easy drinking. Slightly sweet and tart. Light hops. I’d get again if it were 12 oz.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. (Beverages 4 Less) Santee, CA.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small frothy white head.
Super tart and sour aroma with mild fruitiness in the aroma. Really Berliner Weisse style. The flavour is tartness, sourness, bitterness and fruitiness. Less apricots in the aroma or the flavour than I thought. But it’s a nice brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma has plenty of fruit. Apricot’s I guess. It’s been a while since I’ve had a fresh one. Flavor is a nice and fresh apricot fruitiness with a bit of citric tartness after the swallow. Not your typical fruity wheat beer with some artificial flavoring added. This is real, fresh and flavorful.

Hazy light honey pour with a decent ivory cap. Tons of juicy apricot is enjoyed both in the nose and flavor but the base beer just doesn’t spin me in circles. Not a bad beer on a hot AZ summer day...might have to revisit.

Not bad at all. Truth in advertising -- wheat, apricots, blah blah blah. I wouldn’t me a bit less sweetness.

Bottle at Anchorage Sept ’14 Tasting: Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was fruit filled apricot. Nice soapy wheat and fruity apricot taste, definitely not your ordinary fruit added wheat beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured hazy, pale yellow with a white head. This was awesome stuff and worked well in hot weather. Apricots dried it out, and created a wonderful stone fruit flavor to match the wheat characters. Some estery notes too. Smooth and easy drinking and came off as a session even with its 7.2%. Could drink a ton of this stuff.
