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.

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 (2858) - 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 (472) - 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 (2985) - 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 (2114) - 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.

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
341ml bottle. Nice looking pour, school bus yellow, unfiltered, good sized white head. Aroma is sour fruit and coriander. Taste has too much coriander, some lemon and apricot. Some sweetness and wheat. Body was a little thin. Overall, I still just don’t like coriander and this was full of it.

Very light beer. Not that rough because there isn’t much going on here. Pours cloudy orange with ok head, done lacing. Aromaa of bread yeast and some apricot. Bottle.

Bottle at Calgary International Beer Fest. Pours hazy orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is spicy wheat, apricot, coriander, and spicy hops. Flavor is spicy wheat, malt, apricot, no hops or bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
Dégustée en fût au Saint-Bock à Montréal. De couleur dorée-orangée et voilée. Nez fruité (abricots, notes d’agrumes), léger de blé avec des traces de houblon herbeux et de levures. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement élevé ainsi qu’une texture aqueuse. Goût fruité (abricots sucrés aux notes artificielles) avec des notes de levures fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de blé puis en finale des petites notes de houblon herbeux sont détectables. Post-goût court, composé d’un léger goût fruité (abricots) avec des notes de blé et de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes). (23 avril 2013)

Great beer for hot summer days. Well, for any day really. It’s my favourite from this brewery which says a bit because Okanagan Springs is my favourite brewery. Anyway it tastes like apricots alright. It is basically a better Aprikat (by Alley Kat). Really easy drinking. One of the only fruit flavoured beers I like. My only complaint is that it was spelled "Summer Weizen" when Summer is spelled "Sommer" in German, so the English and German kinda clash. Wouldn’t be a big deal but this brewery was founded by Germans.
