COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brewmaster had added his own twist to this traditionally-brewed Weizen, which pours to a cloudy, golden amber colour. The result is a craft brew with a hint of apricot to give it a refreshing seasonal taste.

MrFecesious (960) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
On tap at Bimini. Cloudy orange with decent airy white cap, reducing to a steady blanket with zero lacing. Aroma of apricot, oranges, strawberry with a wheaty stuffiness. Taste is all apricot and strawberry if you don't take big sips/drinks. Otherwise you're left a blandly fruity malt, thin tasting beer. It's not completely terrible, but anything out of this calibre of brewery branding it a "summer" beer, don't expect much.

341mL Bottle. Pours a light hazy yellow colour, fairly thick white foam. Aroma and taste is sweet, apricots and peaches. Great weissbier character as well, presence of yeast, wheat, coriander, mild clove. Excellent fruit weizen, however gimmicky it might be.

Smells like straight up apricot jam with hints of toasted wheat. For what this is suppose to be I think it works, just a sweet fruity summer slammer to enjoy on the deck. This is a beer your mom and wife will love. Why think about it just drink it. The apricot borders on fake and syrupy but for me it stays far enough away of that. Fresh, dry, wheaty. I’m not saying I can drink more then one of these in a day but it is highly drinkable.

Pours more orange, minimal head, aroma of strong apricot, but tastes of light apricot. Good.

Spab (2389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Craft Variety Pack). Pours a murky golden orange with modest-sized whiteish head. Aroma is sweet apricot with light wheaty malt. Flavour also has very strong, sweet apricot. Average-to-light body. One note but ok - refereshing enough in warm weather. Don’t pick up much in the way of a ’weizen’.

Eyrish (92) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
Pours a gold, almost orange slightly cloudy liquid. Heavy head, that fades quickly, leaving a moderate lace. Medium carbonation. Fruity aroma, given the apricot forward brew. Hits the sweet spot on the tongue. Soft on the palate. A unique and refreshing beer. Not the best apricot beer I have sampled, but a valiant effort from a generally uninspiring brewery. Cheers Lagerboy

probstblueribbon (2918) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
341 ml bottle from LCBO, random find in the cast-off basket, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Very cloudy amber with a full off-white meringue. Aroma: Holy artificial peach/apricot Batman!, maybe some wheat and yeast (a stretch), that’s it. Palate: Medium body, limited carbonation. Flav.: So frickin’ much fake peach, that is all; dry, minimal bitterness, peach.

Bwah. No.

Freaky_tiki (549) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
On tap at Old Nick with scarybalddude on whiskey club meet-up. Pours pale orange with a thin cap. Sour key candy on the nose. Taste is bruised apricots & watery orange Gatorade. I guess there’s beer in there too, but its pretty silent. Hard to finish. Rethink your friendship if a pal hands you one.

robinvboyer (3108) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
This is nothing but beer pop. The base Weisse is nowhere to be found. All there is, is an overly sweet, cloying, artificial peach/apricot aroma and flavor. The beer tastes just like peach hard candies you get with your cheque at a restaurant. Not my bag.

Gethinbeer (2154) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Hazy golden, orange pour with a frothy white head. Fruit, apricot wheat aroma. Flavour of apricot. Sweet ale. Smooth beer. Not bad.
