2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle form John’s in Iowa City. A white head topped the bright gold colored body. The aroma was obvious apricots with some lemon poppy seed muffins. The taste was bananas with some clove and lemon bread. I also got a hint of coconut. Pretty good as far as fruit wheat beers go. Too bad I don’t care for apricots.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from SL, pour was clear light amber, lots of carbonation on display, but not a very big head. Aroma was shockingly apricots, only light wheaty notes. The flavor followed the aroma, finishing with a bit too much sweetness, not balanced out quite dry enough by the wheat or carbonation. A decent drinker, but more of a finale treat than a summer thirst quenching light fruit wheat beer.

La bière possède une belle couleur dorée et on y dénote de délicieux arômes d’abricot et de blé. Légère en bouche, elle est très appréciable pour celui ou celle qui recherche quelque chose de plus sucré, plus doux. Bouteille au logo sympathique et invitant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Golden, light orange hue with a thin film for head. Soft peach skin aroma with very light wheat malt presence. Mildly tart-ish, but the fruit notes seem artificial, like Peach Snapple. Velvety mild carbonation. Mild flavor with a fairly light body. Slightly perfumy peach presence along with residual wheat malt character, that should be a be sharper. Still, a fairly well crafted Ale.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.5 oz bottle. Pours a dark gold with nearly no head that is off-white that is gone quickly. Aroma is very sweet apricot. Flavor of sweet apricot is about all you get out of this one. No lacing, light carbonation, light body, no alcohol noted. I’d like to call this my experiment gone wrong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is sweet and peachy. The flavour is....sweet and peachy. Well i’m assuming it’s really apricot, but I know the smell and flavour of peach better so thats what I’m going with. This beer is pretty straight forward but tasty. I enjoyed it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured clear amber color with a moderate white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Average sweet apricot aroma. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Medium sweet fruity flavor with a sweet thin finish of moderate duration. Fruit brew, not my style.

1.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange yellow, thick white head. Aroma is apricot, wheat, grass, caramel. Flavor is apricot, butter, chemical bitterness, wheat finish. Taste gets worse and worse as you drink it. The chemical bitterness gets stronger. Reminds me of children’s tylenol. Drain pour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a radiant pumpkin colour, with a small white head, which quickly falls away to a sparse film. Aroma of apricots and wheat, exactly as it says on the label. Initial taste is very grainy, and a bit bland, with the apricot present, but seemingly muted. The fruit flavours do became a lot more dominant as the beer warmed. I didn’t find it as sweet as some of the other raters, and I imagine it could be a refreshing drink in the summertime. However, there is nothing here to make me buy it again.
