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...

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A- Apricots, fruity, sugar, sweet.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, no head.
T- Apricots, medium sweetness,
P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, sweet finsh.
O- Almost good. The apricot was artificial and too sugary tasting, as well as being slightly cloying. The carbonation was so high it felt like drinking a apricot soda or something. As with other Sea Dog brews I have had, they are close to being good but just not quite there. No exception with this one.

Reviewed from notes.
Consumed on tap at Federal Jack’s.
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 you’d 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 isn’t 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.

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.

Clear, honey gold with a small, white head.
It’s not really up my alley, but it IS what it says it is.
Too sweet, too fruity, too soft.

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.
