4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
OK first off the aroma, who does not like apricots. Second Appearance, who does not like a bottle with a big fluffy white dog wearing a yellow rain hat, third taste, who does not like any beer at work. Fourth palate, who does not like the taste of fruit after drinking a beer, and finally overall not a bad beer. Not my favorite but at work It is a nice break from running the chainsaw, if you know what I mean. My wifeís motherís girlfriend would definitely drink this fruity beer. Im al for that. Oh, dont forget your BigRed with this one. I know my wifeís motherís girlfrind was chewing on Big Red after she drank a few of these.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
Consumed on tap at Federal Jackís.
This was poured into a pint glass.
There was a quarter finger white foamy head that dissipated within second (bar pour) no worries. There was barely any lacing.
The smell did have the apricot to it.
The taste took the apricot and added a slight heavy grainy kick to it (yup, that must be the wheat).
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionable quality to it letting go half decent with food.
Overall, not a bad beer, but not a stellar one. It goes down the hatch best with food.

Smells strongly of apricot. Taste is smooth fruity apricot, wheat. Decent. Not bitter at all. Lives up to name but could use a touch more crisp carbonation and hops.

Wow not what I expected. Tasted like real apricot, not artificial or overpowering or underwhelming. I dont drink fruity beers but this was well worth the try. Great wheat beer with a apricot aroma and taste although not sweet. A soft refreshing beer. Rated unjustly by the beer snobs on here

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Sampled at Living Social Beerfest, 12/6/13
Aroma: The nose is apricot/fruity and wheat mostly, as youíd expect
Appearance: It pours a a hazed yellow color with an off-white head on it
Flavor: The flavor is similar, fruity, sweet, and a little wheat
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a fairly clean, refreshing finish on the mouth
This certainly isnít a great beer, but for what it is trying to be it works decently. As far as this style goes, you could certainly do a lot worse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ So. Portland Pub: This one ours a clear golden color. There was almost no head: just a wisp of a white head. There was no lacing. The aroma is lighter. Faint apricot and wheat. Apricot taste, but not overpowering. Wheat in background. Refreshing.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear, honey gold with a small, white head.
Itís not really up my alley, but it IS what it says it is.
Too sweet, too fruity, too soft.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beers appears okay with a very clear golden color to it, which is weird because wheat beers are typically a little hazy. There was very little head but beer was well carbonated. The smell instantly comes off with an obvious apricot smell, mild wheat and yeast scents too. The taste is okay with a solid yeasty wheat flavor and a mild following of apricot, but definitely a lot of carbonation, almost like drinking soda water. The mouthfeel is mediocre with some mild bitterness and lingering wheat but fades fast. Overall, this beer is okay, it tastes great after being outside all day in the hot sun but nothing impressive and not even close to the best apricot wheat Ive ever had.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a clear golden color with plenty of evident carbonation. The head is a creamy one finger off-white shade. It doesnít fade so much as slowly settle after a while.
S: I do get a little bit of apricot...but I also get something else. BUTTER. More specifically, buttered popcorn. Hey, this is brewed by Shipyard, so I guess itís not really a surprise. While I donít like the aroma, I canít help inhaling this - itís like a car crash for the olfactory senses.
T: Can you say diacetyl bomb? It really opens the brew up in a not-so-pleasing manner. Give it a few more sips, and the buttered popcorn flavor gradually turns into a generic apricot one. About the only good thing here is that itís not (massively) cloying. All that diacetyl doiní itís job, I sípose.
M: Carbonation is strong, but not harsh. It still makes me gassy, though. Nor did I expect it to be this dry - or maybe I should say less dry than the typical fruit beer. Like I said, at least itís not cloying.
O: This one is no good, but not horrible enough to drainpour. Basically a case of right idea, wrong execution. Next!
