Apricot aroma. Hazy amber, thin head. Apricot dominated flavor. Light body. Tasty, but singularly fruited. Should be re-classed as a fruit beer.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
