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.

22oz bottle. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aomas of and lots of it, apricots. Tastes of apricots with some wheat. This one was definitely all about the apricots.

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.

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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 3, 2009
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)

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle Pours a nice clear amber with a fizzy deminishing off white head. Very limited lacing. Has a good aroma of floral, apricots, and a touch of wheat. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is refreshing with good amounts of apricot, and fruit. Has a watery texture. A light body. The finish is good and sweet. The aftertaste is okay. Not a bad beer to share with friends.

TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2009
This beer was really weird, somewhere between a lambic and a wheat beer but leaning more towards a lambic. The 22oz bottle was poured into a wheat beer glass and produced an off-white head that quickly dissipated and a clear light amber body (unlike a true wheat beer which should be more translucent). Sweet apricot dominated the aroma and taste. Very light, much like the other lambic’s I’ve had.

Bomber from suzygreenberg. Pours a slightly murky orangish light brown to golden with little head. Nose is huge on the apricot and then some yeasty wheatness. Very inviting and almost desert like. Light prickly palate with lots of apricot and wheat. Taste pretty nice, but maybe a bit ’artificial’ on the fruit. Enjoyable and I would drink a bomber to myself, but nothing I would seek out. Thanks Ben.
