NIce and sweet, like fruits. I like the taste and the colour of the wheat it gives is very good indeed. Good foam but not after taste.

slightly cloudy amber color. aroma is very very nice, lots of apricot in there, smells wonderful. Flavour is kind of a let down, not much body there, and somewhat wattery. the flavour doesn’t live up to the aroma. Still a decent beer, but kinda falls short.

Pours a slightly foggy gold colour with a thick white head. Smells like dried apricots and actually tastes like the fruit. It’s not too sweet and really good, especially on tap.

Golden, visible carbonation, and an average head. Strong apricot nose and flavor. Quite nice actually. More like juice than beer, but it’s tasty enough to be forgiven.

Nice light rosey golden colour with good carbonation. Not surprisingly, it has a distinct aprikat flavour that is sweet and easy to drink. 341ml bottle. I would buy this again on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 341ml bottle - pours lightly golden with a thick white head on top. Aroma is, well...apricot. Sweet and floral with notes of peaches as well. Flavour is similar, lots and lots of apricot, with some subtle wheat notes (very subtle) and some rounded malt to smooth it out. Very creamy (from the wheat). This is a sweet brew, but the sweetness is not cloying, something worthy of distinction for a North American fruit beer. Fairly interesting and inviting taste, though it doesn’t really appeal to me, and certainly not when I’m in the mood to drink a beer. Ideally, I would probably tone down the apricot flavour slightly and amp up the wheat beer qualities. S’allright.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 341 ml bottle - pours pale gold with a thick white head. Aroma of APRICOTS -bottle this scent and The Body Shop has a new product. Taste is much the same - dominated by apricot (extract) - not much wheat or ale in there at all, some strange astringency in the back of the throat. The real problem here is that the apricot is so overpowering, there is no balance at all. Really a one note deal - apricot juice that’ll get you drunk....come to think of it, that may not be a bad thing.......but we’re rating BEER here and this is anything but. Not horrible, not amazing, certainly different....if I want a beer, i’ll have one, and if I want a fuzzy navel, i’ll have one of those. But there aren’t too many times when I want a beer that tastes like a fuzzy navel....why do I even know what a fuzzy navel is? I’m sorry.

[057-20060923] 341mL. Smells like sweet, fruity apricots. Light ruddy-amber body with a short-lived white head. Tastes like creamed wheat, strong apricot presence with a long, creamy aftertaste. Medium body, very nice roundness. Overall, very nice! Love the apricot kick.
