3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange amber with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that was totally diminishing in a matter of seconds and basically had no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was very strong with the scent of apricots, along with a mild grain malt and a large dose of a sweet doughy yeast and not much else.
The taste was lightly sweet and very yeasty with a big fruity apricot note throughout with the finish being somewhat tart and big on wheat flavor. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow with a fruity tart wheat flavor left to lying on the taste buds for a little while.
Mouthfeel was just above light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a decent fruity brew with a nice wheat feel, a great beer for those days relaxing on the deck in the summer...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: pours a thick off white head that drops slowly with mild lacing. Cloudy light yellow gold color.
Aroma: strong apricot aroma along with wheat, white bread and a bit of lemon.
Mouthfeel: light and fizzy
Flavor: apricot also dominates the taste with wheat and malt notes in the background and just enough hops to slightly offset the sweetness.
Overall: ok for the style, but nothing spectacular and too sweet to drink more than one.

Rated based on notes taken 4 Aug 2012 -- Was a little disappointed in this beer. Not exactly what I was expecting, but this was a little thin and artificial tasting.

Pours a hazy, cloudy golden orange color that sparkles slightly and has a small disappearing head. Smell is citrus, lemons, apricots, spices. Taste is bitter, apricot, lemon, floral and slight spice. Short taste length, doesnít stick with you, so ends on a crisp finish with a high drinkability factor. Nice!
