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.

Notes only. Tap @ Edison Ale house outside the Prudential center in New jersey. Light, fruity. Aroma and taste are mildly apricot, minimal yeastiness, some wheat. No hop presence, but a great summer brew.

12oz bottle from Weilands. Yellow gold pour with thin bright white. Aroma of apricot and wheat - as advertised. Tastes are wheat, yeast, sweet artificial apricot. Not a lot else going on - little watery.

On tap at Beer Authority New York September 2013. I find with Apricot beers that the apricot is usually hard to detect and this one was no different.

Transfer from BA review on 9-10-12 Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a yellow-golden colored brew with a haze and a thin white head. The head faded fast to leave a light film on the top of the brew. Smell – The aroma is super sweet with tons of apricot, peach and even a little bit of sugar candy aroma. Taste – The taste of the beer is relatively constant through the whole taste experience. It is a flavor of wheat mixed with strong flavors of apricot and some peach. In the beginning of the taste is on the more sour side, where at the end of the taste it sweetens up a bit. In the end, a light citrus hop comes to the taste as well helping to balance out the semi-sweet apricot and wheat taste that are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a carbonation level that is slightly higher then average. Overall – Ah… It is an OK beer, but somewhat one dimensional and a bit to sour up front. Not one I would go to with real occasion.

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 (630) - 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 (6807) - 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.
