COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy-drinking wheat beer is light in color and body...perfect for the warmer weather. In crafting this fine ale, we add many pounds of real apricot fruit to create a "secondary fermentation." This creates a gentle wheat beer with just a hint of apricot flavor in the finish. A very drinkable, mildly fruity ale.

Bottle. Clear gold with a nice 1 finger off white head. Aroma is peach syrup and slightly floral. Taste is apricot, wheat, lager yeast and some unpleasant breadiness that I can't quite put my finger on. Thin fizzy palate. Not wonderful.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a slightly cloudy lighter gold with white lacing. Smells pleasant; apricots and mild wheat. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Better than I expected, and better than its scores indicate IMO.

ADesenberg (561) - Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Draft: nice hazy slightly orange-yellow with a big white head. Aromas are big fruit smells... Definitely apricot, but more too... Flowery. Taste us very nice... Apricot, if course, and some breadiness... Very surprised that thus is as enjoyable as it is.

DrSilverworm (6043) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Mostly hazy yellow golden color. Good thin white head. Leaves decent, kind of loose splotches of lace. Nice big apricot and creme aroma. Some light cheese cake -type fruitiness, maybe a hint of strawberry? Very interesting, tasty fruit aroma. Light to medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Crisp and easy drinking with a lightly dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light dry finish. Not sugary or syrupy or over sweet or anything. Pretty tasty, refreshing fruit-wheat beer. Much better than expected.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Pours yellow with a medium head, aroma of apricot tea, apricot, flavor of apricot tea, a bit artificial, slightly bitter towards the end, medium bodied.

DSG (5676) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Slightly hazy blonde. Big apricot aroma. Sweetish flavor, wheaty, with light graininess, apricot and a slightly bitterish husky finish. Light-bodied, kinda watery.

Maxbier (164) - Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2014
Fruity apricot sweet aroma. Cloudy yellow color. Flavor is sticky sweet fruity, not unpleasant, if you are looking for a wine cooler made from natural craft ingredients you may enjoy this. Not for me.

EithCubes (4759) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Nose is heavy, syrupy apricot, I’m surprised by how real and jammy is smells instead of artificial or Jolly Rancher’d. Pours hazy deep golden with above-avg carb and a white head that’s gone in two shakes of a tail feather. Taste is somewhat dry, has a bready finish, very low bitterness. Full, crisp, heavy body. Base ale is a little weak, though the wheat aspect is fine, just want a little malt and perhaps a smidgen more cleanliness. Mild low levels of sweetness and tartness are really appreciated here, and with the pure strain of apricot going, has a chance to really be something special to a lot of people.

This is an odd one. Pours opaque blonde, and its aromas are sweet and fruity. There is little carbonation and no head or lacing. Hints of grapefruit, lemon, honey, and apricot make for a very sweet, very mediocre beer. Would never buy again.
