Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the apricot with not too much else going on. There may be a little bit of wheat in the aroma, but it is basically just fruit. The flavor is more of the same. A whole lot of apricot and a tad bit of wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle that my mom brought back to me while dropping my brother off at Penn St. Pours a crystal clear, deep golden-bronze colored body with an orange tint to it. Finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is big on the fresh and sweet apricots with just a touch of tartness. Some nice wheat malts in the background offering a solid balance. Very simple, but pleasant aroma. Flavor is similar. The wheat malts are rich with a solid sweetness to them while balancing the bigger, fresh apricot taste. Finishes clean and smooth with no hop bitterness before leaving a medium length, wheat and apricot aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth, crisp, refreshing body with a light-medium, gentle carbonation. Overall, a really solid wheat. Very straightforward and simple with lots of apricot flavor, but enough of a wheat malt backing to prevent this from becoming too much of a fruit beer. Refreshing, crisp, and easy drinking. Another solid offering from a great brewpub.

On tap at Otto’s on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear orange gold with a medium sized white head. Loads of apricot. A bit much really. Hard to make one with a good aroma I think, as too much apricot and it always ends up smelling artificial, not enough, then you’re left with no fruit aromas. Wheat, sweet fruit. Soft carbonation, smooth and subtle. Gentle apricot and wheat on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, from brewery. Pours a clear dark gold body with a very small, thin, and fizzy off-white head that all but vanished immediately. Pretty nice natural smelling apricot nose over a light wheat and pale malt base. The flavor is pretty nice up front, but it gets a bit weird on the finish. An odd cereal grain note comes out a little too strong. Still very natural fruit taste though. Light to medium bodied with a bit of a sugary sweet stickiness on the finish. Overall pretty decent for what it is, it won’t knock your socks off, but I can drink it.

22oz bottle from treyrab, big thanks to Trey as usual. Rating #32. Very clear light amber color. Aroma was big apricots, more like an apricot extract, but pretty good. Flavor was similar, apricot flavoring dominated everything else, sweet and pretty drinkable, not too bad. (1019)
