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.

Without depth and rather acidic. No significant lingering finish and memorable fragrance.

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.

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.

Draft. Hazy straw color, small white edge head. Aroma of light citrus. Taste has a bit of apricot.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Draft at Milk Boy. Cloudy straw pour with a slight foamy head. Pungent apricot off the nose. Some bright notres. Apricot dominates but a nice full flavorfull spread dominates. Bright wheat notes. Worth trying.

It’s not as bad as you think. Smell apricot, lemon. Come in light yellow. Taste light apricot, somewhat acidity and slimy. Just alright, easy lady beer.

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.
