Overwhelming apricot flavor. Probably best drank ice cold, as it warmed it exposed nothing. Not bad, but far from special.

For what this is, it’s really good. I am not a fan of these sort of ham fisted fruit brews but this is head and shoulders above most of its ilk--not that that makes for an especially great beer. This is cloudy orange in color with a small white head. This claims to have "just a hint of apricot flavor in the finish" and that may well be true but the nose is fairly well bathed in and dripping with apricot flavor. It is a bit heavy handed but not altogether unpleasant. This is just a touch sweet and really pretty bland except for the apricot flavor. It’s medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation and finishes pretty clean. I’d imagine I could slug a few of these back right from the bottle if I so desired and enjoy them well enough but from a glass the apricot does get to cloy after a while.

Rating from March 2014...Straw color...off white head....pretty basic looking for a wheat.....a nice whiff of apricot and dried apricots.....sweet flavor up front, this almost seems like a fruit beer, then its wheat.....some zing mid-palate....its good --goes down easy, would be nice with some sunshine!

Clear light golden, minimal white head. Strong apricot fruit nose, light hay. Sweet, slight hint of bitterness. Light body, reasonably carbonated. Fine.

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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
