3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 Nice floral nose with citrus notes. Taste is a little pepper with a nice hop bite. Finish is bitter and you can taste some of the apricot sweetness in there. Better than normal Sam Adams.

bottle pours a pale hazy orange with fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, some floral hops. Flavor has some lemony wheat to it, with touches of citrus fruit, and a dry finish. Medium bodied. Lasting bitterness on the finish. Pretty good.

Bottle from Albertsons. Hazy with a bit of debris floating around. Nose is pretty hoppy. Dry peppery hop character. Some grapefruit peel. Tastes like an IPA to me. I wouldn’t think it was anything else.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow orange with a small white head. Wit yeast, bread, banana, some pine and very subdued apricot in the aroma. The flavor has a lot of wit characteristics upfront, with a piney, hoppy, somewhat bitter back end. The bitterness comes off a little harsh. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Decent, but not great.

Hazy yellow with a solid white head. Aroma is citrusy hops with a bit of resin. Run of the mill IPA, but very drinkable with a slightly malty finish.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2016 Thanks to Sean for this. Hazy light yellow color. Fresh piney hops that turn a bit citrusly later. Sweet notes from the Apricot but not bursting with fruit flavors. Not totally my thing but it is good for what it is. Serving: Bottle

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is pretty good. Looks like a wheat beer, but has the definite hop flavor of an IPA. With a sharp dryness and a bit of fruitiness. A different type of IPA but good.

On tap at pub. Hazy yellowish with a thick, persistent creamy white head. Tastes like fruits, orange, coriander, has some acidity, and a touch of citrusy bitterness in the finish. Full bodied, average carbonation. Good white ale.

Pours a hazy amber with a thick white head. Smells of floral notes, pine. Tastes of hops, with an added sweetness, i guess from the apricots.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, appears cloudy light yellow with nice frothy white head retention. Herbal, grassy, clove, musty, lemon pith. Body is creamy, and medium-light in texture. Finish has some clove, wheat and suprising amount of slightly pithy, dank bitterness. Pretty interesting offering, I really get elements of the “Wit” towards the finish. A bit confused (is it a cloudy spicy IPA or a souped up wheat beer?), but overall pretty successful.
