Not a very dark beer and definitely didn’t retain its head very long. Pretty smooth with a slight after taste of apricots. Not bad, but would never buy it again

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (12oz). Hazy light gold with an average fizzy white head, tons of bubbles - apple juice? Smells like apricot with a hint of pear, very sweet and fruity, some yeast and a little hop bitterness. Taste is incredibly buttery - like stale bread with apricot preserves thickly slathered with salted butter - flat, sticky mouthfeel, somewhat metallic aftertaste - way, way, sweeter than I like but it does taste like real apricot, that’s for sure. Just not much like beer, wheat or otherwise.

Fruit Smell and taste, you can really sense the apricot. Very clear, like a macro brew.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours almost clear, like a white wine. Aroma of apricot, hearty wheat, and other fruit. Nice flavor, not for a beer though. Really thin and light with a bit of apricot and a little wheat. Not that good.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle via Rich and served in pint glass: Poured a slightly hazed wit like golden color with a fading fizzy head, minimal lace. The aroma has notes of syrupy apricot, biscuity malt, and just a smack of grassy bitter notes. The taste is not very good with a bland apricot flavor over an equally bland wheaty and pale malt background. Again, there is just a note of grassy character on the finish. Finally a bit of acidic tartness does show, but not in time to save the experiance. The feel is chalky and watery. I will pass on the rest.

This wasn’t bad. Probably a little over carbonated. Hint of apricot on the aroma and taste. Nothing special but I could and did drink a lot of it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden body with quickly dissipating white head. Cloudy, golden yellow body. Aroma of apricot. Quick taste of apricot on the tip of the tongue, but quickly becomes just another wheat beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells and tastes of apricot say some. Others say the smell is there but the fruit flavor is AWOL. I’m of two minds on this beer. I see it as a cheaper version of Magic Hat’s #9.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Hazy golden body, no head. Aroma is big time apricots. Flavor is the same. Not much here other than a dominating apricot flavor. Ok I guess.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent brew. The apricot essence is most evident in the background and aftertaste. Very lightly colored and hazy. Smells very sweet, but taste is not overpoweringly sweet. A decent brew that is somewhat underrated here.
