Very refreshing, most flavored beers suck but this is a notable exception. The apricot is subtle enough to make this a man’s beer, but it will definitely please the ladies as well.

Smells of apricot and lemon zest. Appearance is a medium golden amber. Very little head and almost no retention or lacing. The taste is definitely apricot, but this isn't overpowering. The best part is the complete lack of bitterness. Which is great for a non-hophead like me. Thoroughly enjoyed.

"very refreshing beer in the summer, wouldn’t touch it in the winter. pretty close to their heffe, replacing a little of the wheat body with a sweet apricot chaser. not too subtle or overdone. a little thin on tap."

small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. clear sparkling average dark yellow body. aroma: peach jelly. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet light acidic very light bitter; average duration. palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, light astringent finish. Sabor semelhante ao aroma, lembrando gelatina de pessego e não damasco. Refrescante. Sabor bem artificial. Não parece ser feita com trigo. Excelente drinkability. Ligeira adstringência final balanceia bem o conjunto e parece ser o único traço de damasco na cerveja. 8 s

Transfer from BA review on 6-3-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazed yellow orange color with a tiny fizzy white head. The head fades instantly leaving only the tracest level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- Huge apricot aroma in this one (as may be expected for an apricot ale). The apricot is rather pleasant and smells quite authentic. While dominating the smell, the apricot is joined by a light aroma of wheat as well. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet apricot flavor straight up front with some hints of wheat mixed within. The wheat remains light throughout with the apricot growing even stronger and sweeter in flavor as the taste advances to the end. At the very end, a little bit of a peach flavor joins the taste as well, with the mix of apricot, peach and wheat leaving a sweet but smoother taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather low. A bit more carbonation may have suited the beer’s sweeter fruit flavors slightly better, but overall the feel was fine. Overall – This is a brew big on apricot flavor with much less of else taking away from its center stage presence. Rather tasty and refreshing and a good go to if you feel like something apricot or fruity. Not bad.

Certainly pours foggy apricot-juice with a very modest head that’s almost nothing at all. Aroma is a detergent-y apricot smell which is rather on the sweet side and perhaps somewhat troubling for those who are fans of apricot rather than sweet apricot soda. Flavour is okay apricot and not too sweet followed by wheat ale hints and a small mention of detergen that leaves the whole deal a little cloying. There are some good elements here but they are not working well. It’s merely drinkable.

sudomorph (716) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, bright orange with a one diver, white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has big, sweet notes of apricot, and trace amounts of wheat. Taste is sweeter with an almost peach/apricot jam mixed in with slight wheat ale. Drawn out aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Semi syrupy mouth feel. Overall a pretty well down apricot beer just not my thing.

Travlr (13508) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pale orange with a bit of gold, slight thin white head. Aroma of apricot flavored baby food and ketones. Taste is like Miller Light with apricot jucie added. Flavor likely comes from apricot juice added after fermentation, or possible from artificial flavorings. Finish was reminiscent of fertilized soil. Drain pour.

Stuedmaster (244) - Vista, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
This is an above-average fruit beer, nice for the summer. The pour is cloudy orange-gold, with a slight white head that is quickly gone, no lacing. Aroma of apricots, wheat, banana, slight clove. It’s a little on the sweet side but overall it has good balance, not too heavy on the apricot, still tastes like a wheat ale. The quality of the apricots must be high because it has a rich, authentic apricot flavor. I think it is better with some of the yeast from the bottom poured into the glass to give it a more diverse flavor profile. Light to medium body, slick and creamy texture, medium carb., refreshing finish. It is even good straight from the bottle if you don’t have a glass on hand.
