Transfer from BA - Poured from bomber into pint glass. Appearance - Pours a light golden-orange color with a white head that faded rapidly giving very little lacing. Smell - For the lightness of the beer, the odor is superb. Massive amount of fresh apricot and some peach. There is a little bit of sugar and wheat which work their way at the end of the odor experience. Taste - After the smell, I was expecting much more, but was disappointed. The apricot does come on in the beginning, but it is much weaker then anticipated. A small amount of wheat works its way into the taste profile near after a bit of apricot fades from the tongue. It was furthermore much dryer then the smell would lead on; not what I expected. Mouthfeel - The carbonation level was quite nice, but the body was a bit thin. Overall - The smell of the brew sorta threw me off. A bit more "syrupiness" from more sugar and a bit more alcohol would have helped the beer meet its fantastic smell profile. An occasional drinker, nothing more.

The beer pours average as it has a clear golden straw color, a mild white head and no lacing on the glass. The beers nose is average andas has an apparent mild apricot followed by a mild wheat smell. The beer taste is average as it has a mild bitter apricot taste and some wheat but not much else. The mouthfeel is mediocre as the beer was carbonated okay but doesn’t do much else for mouthfeel. Overall, a weak offering from Ottos where they have more hits then misses...this is a miss.

I’m not really into the whole apricot thing, but the flavor of this beer is decent. Would have liked a bit more of the wheat to come through though.

Pours a clear golden yellow with minimal head. Aroma of apricot. Taste is sweet and mellow with the flavor if apricot, but the sweet kind. Finished with a slightly dry bitterness. Easily drinkable. Good summer session ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The appearance is simplistic. There is no head with only a ring of bubbles that hugged my glass. The color is a clear yellow and pale like tone. As for the aroma I noticed apricot and grains. The apricot is a pleasant scent but it was too much. In tasting the apricot is tamed by the barley wheat, yeast, malts, and a carbonated texture. The beverage was not balanced well. Sniffing the beer led me to believe it would be more of a fruit beer than wheat ale. Tasting the beverage showed me that it was more of a wheat ale than a fruit beer. Overall it doesn?t impact the palate but it did not leave a delicious finishing taste in my mouth. The Apricot Wheat is a good drink but it was not to my liking.

22 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a long lasting, thin, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of wheat malt and apricots. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is wheat malt, apricots and hint of hops. Nice beer for ladies.

Light good pour. A sweet, fruity aroma. A very sweet, fruit juice type flavor. A typical wheat beer after taste.

On tap at Ottos, pours a see through orangish color. Nose is all apricot. Taste is very light and bland and tastes like a non alcoholic apricot cider. Not for me ! Quaff Score 3 / 10

Bottle. Pours a clear gold. Little aroma. Taste is very apricot forward. Not much wheat flavor coming through. Finishes a bit coppery flavored.
