4oz sampler -

Part of a 7-beer sampler tray. Easily the worst beer of the sampler tray. It tasted and smelled like some fruity hand soap, with an awful twang in the finish. It looked like something that would be found in the sink of some greasy spoon. Stay far, far away from this garbage.

Serving type: growler - Aroma - Smelled or wheat, slight citrus and apricot. A-Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head that did not last long and very little lacing. T/P - Taste of standard American wheat beer with an after taste of apricot. Very light carbonation. This beer is very crisp and light. O- This I very drinkable. I could easily drink a whole growler of this, especially on a hot summer day.

Not much of an aroma. Pyramid apricot ale has a better apricot taste but this one is good on a hot day Revere Stryker dog!

Pours cloudy golden orange, strong apricot aroma, very nice. Crisp and refreshing with strong wheat, and apricot flavor. Not a bad beer, they served these at the ski resort I worked at for 8 years and it was my customary "after a long day" beer thanks to its crisp refreshing nature.

Tap @Brewpub. Pours hazy light golden with a small white head and good lacing. This beer smells like slightly artificial apricot, perhaps a touch of wheat, but not much room for anything else. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet and no bitterness to be found. Light bodied. I can see this as a gateway beer for the Zima crowd, but not much going for it otherwise.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 a straight lite fruity beer here. very aromatic and refreshing. would make a good summer brew, but bear valley just had snow, so it’s a little out of season in october. similar but thinner than pyramid.

IrishBoy (3871) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Bottle from World Maket Microbrew pack. Nose smells like fresh apricots like are on the tree in my back yard right now; gold with a huge white head which laces they glass as it slowly recedes; flavor of apricot cobbler with some caramel malt.

I’M NOT A REAL GREAT BEER DRINKER, BUT I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO EAT AT THE SNOWSHOE BREWERY . I TRIED THIS BEER AND FEEL IN LOVE. NO BITTER AFTER TASTE AND VERY SMOOTH. IT HAD A NICE LIGHT APRICOT TASTE AND FRAGRANCE. SANDY FROM WIS.
