On tap at the Brewpub, October 21, 2011.
Hazy yellow/golden with a small white head. Quite a lot of apricot both in the aroma and taste. Also notes of hay and bread. Drinkable but almost too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a nice enough, slightly hazy gold with a sticky white head. The nose is juicy, lots of tart peach/apricot notes and some faint fresh baked bread. On tasting, light tartness, all about the fruit juice. Very fruit forward and really overshadows the base beer. Huh. Okay.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy dulled golden orange, good haze, frothy offwhite head sits as a thicker film, laces ok. Aromas are touches of apricot and flaked wheat, bread, dough, light touch of lemon. Quite mellow, perhaps even too light. Maybe a faint touch of white grape. Initial is considerably more flavorful, offering a lighter bodied wheat ale, bread dough meshes with tart apricots, some sweetness from the fruit, faint lemon peel, bread dough, and touches of yeasty spice. Really, considerably more tart than I thought it would be, leaving a lingering tart apricot feel on the palate, a touch sour, with lingering juicy apricot and then rolling into the typical flaked wheat and bread dough, bread yeast, and a fairly clean finish with some lingering tart fruit and faint yeastiness. It’s really quite pleasant, highly quaffable, and leaves a good tartness on the palate in the beginning, making those who dread sweet cloying American fruit wheat beers rejoice. A really nice fruit wheat from Pete. It does get a touch sweet up front as you settle into the beer more further in, but overall, I enjoyed the beer. A touch of lemon, battling the sweet and tart apricot. Solid, but not a world mover. Probably better than the Raspberry version. Though I think I rated it just a smidge lower..
