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.

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

Pour is a honey amber with a white head. Aroma is a nice wheat with a light fruit. Taste is a sweet crisp fruit. Finish is a wash of fruit.

tom10101 (4902) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Rouses Point Beer Emporium. No idea how old it is.

Appearance: Clear pale yellow/golden with a medium quickly disappearing white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Gummy peaches mostly with light herbal notes and not much else.

Taste: Not very tasty. Mild gummy peach and light wheat acidity. Other than, there isnít much more.

Palate: Light body. Medium carbonation. Really watery. Bland finish.

Overall: Very disappointing beer from Ithaca. Aroma is quite artificial despite real fruits being used. Bland and watery.

On tap at Ward 8 Pale orange color with a long lasting head. Overpowering apricot aroma and flavor. Kind of like a beer cooler, but it kind of worked.

For what this is, itís 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. Itís medium bodied w/ moderate carbonation and finishes pretty clean. Iíd 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.
