2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
murky honey range, thick head drops to white ring. Cereal grain nose bordering on caramel but high attenuation keeps dry, tons of apricot. Fizzy apricot front is moderately metallic, foamy through bread crust and apricot rind mid before bubblegum sweet esters in the end. Juicy yet sticky in the thin, filmy end, synthetic with papery bitterness.

On tap at Al's of Hampden in Enola, PA. This is far more apricot based than Aprihop, but even as someone who does not care much for the fruit, this is blended very nicely and makes for an incredibly drinkable summer beer.

Loads of apricots. Not a huge an of wheat beers but this was fantastic. This would be a really nice summer beer if they canned it.

A - Pours hazy pale yellow with a small bubbly half finger tall white head leaving small trails of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of fresh apricots, pale malt, bready wheat, a bit of grassy hops and a touch of sweetness from the fruit. The fruit works very well with the wheat base.
T - This one tastes just like it smells. Starts off with a ton of bright apricot sweetness slowly giving way to the chewy wheat and a touch of light hop bitterness. Finish is a mix of wheat and apricot, lingering on the palate for awhile after the finish.
M - Light, refreshing feel with moderate carbonation. The fruit offers a light sweetness, helping to offset the bready wheat.
O - A nice light beer for the coming warmer weather. It packs quite a bit of fruity flavor into a small package. I am still not the biggest fan of this style but if you are not into the bigger beer styles this one may be perfect for you.
