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.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at Hops, New Westminster
Cloudy blond color. Aroma of apricot scent, candies and sugar. Dry and weak mouthfeel, poor beer, with no character, and just a dash of artificial candy fruit flavor.
Bad.

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
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.

Bottle & JJs house. I always seem to find something in his fridge that I havent yet ticked. This take on an apricot wheat came up short for me. Artificial powdered candy apricot kills any wheat character. Not quite alcopop, but Alley Kat and Pyramid each do a much better job with this style.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, not much of the apricot, and not much else. Flavour is dry, with wheat, subtle dry lemon peel and maybe a hint of apricot. Subtle and drinkable. Decent.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy dark amber. Thin white head. Strong apricot aroma wafts above the glass. Beer is malty, a bit sweet, has some yeast and meaty apricot. A bit of bitterness in the finish.

czar (4107) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
pours hazy almost cloudy very pale golden with a nice and almost creamy off-white cap, some retention and lacing. unwelcoming artificial and intense apricot aroma, but also peaches, vanilla, fruity phenolic esters, sugary maltiness, perfume and candies, pepper, minerals - chalk. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, semi-sweet short grassy-herbal-citrusy finish.

reebtogi (4035) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2012
341ml bottle pours a cloudy pale orange color with an aggressively poured 2 finger white head that left some thin spotty lacing as it settled. Fruity apricot aroma. Taste is also fruity apricot with some very mild hoppy bitterness. Finishes dry with a light body and decent carbonation. Overall, this is a pretty decent fruit beer, but it is a little bit too sweet up front for my liking.

solidfunk (3583) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Very light beer. Not that rough because there isnt much going on here. Pours cloudy orange with ok head, done lacing. Aromaa of bread yeast and some apricot. Bottle.

Odd fruity nose. Somewhat floral perfumey apricot profile, light yeasty spiciness

robinvboyer (2984) - 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.
