2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear light amber with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that diminished rapidly, down to a small collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was all about the apricots with a light grain malt and a sweet yeast and had a mild note of peach and a hint of berry.
The taste was sweet and just a tad acidic with a large apricot presence throughout with the finish having a slight sweet berry undertone. The flavor lasted a very short duration proceeding the swallow with a sweet watery ending.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a Wheat Beer with hardly any wheat flavor, in fact the apricot flavor was so engulfing that basically that was all you tasted...

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear gold color with a white heqd that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has nice, juicy apricot notes that stay sweet, like the canned peaches in syrup. The taste is sweet and suagary, with more of an apricot nuance. Light in body and has medium to high carbonation. I get a wheaty note in the finish.

Pours yellow-orange with strong fruity apricot aroma. Wheat and apricot flavor. A bit underdeveloped or otherwise would have been a really nice beer.

Orlando Total Wine bottle at Shades of Green. Clear copper color with a khaki head. Nice aroma of fresh apricots with some grain dust. Flavor is fairly mild apricot with a hint of wheat; even a hint of pit. Fine.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance is about the best thing here, although I suspect there’re foaming agents. Aroma is faintly apricot extract. Flavor is also not like fresh apricots, more like an apricot soda pop with some beery flavorings added. Body is thin. This is a one and done.

12 oz. bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma was rather mild with pale wheat malt and some apricot fruitiness. The flavor has pale wheat malts and apricot fruitiness, light beer, no reason to revisit.

Transfer from BA review on 4-10-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam and tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – A strong peach and apricot aroma is the bulk of the smell. These are combined with a bit of a wheaty and grassy smell producing a nice sweet, fruity aroma overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a wheat bread and apricot flavor right from the start. These flavors create a base for the brew with the wheat remaining relative constant and the apricot gaining strength as the flavor advances. Along with the slight increase in the apricot, comes some flavors of a peach nature, accentuating the fruity nature of the brew as the taste advances. A very light grassy flavor joins the taste at the end of the flavor profile, leaving one with a medium sweet, but rather crisp, fruity apricot and peach flavor, to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are fantastic for the fruity flavors of the brew and make for a very refreshing and more crisp brew overall.
Overall – A not overly sweet and quite drinkable apricot ale. Rather refreshing and easy drinking.
