The Apricot flavour is beautifully transpired while not being overly strong. It looks brilliant in a glass.

I tried this beer at Smokeless Joe’s in Toronto on June 25, 2007. Wow! What a beer! (and it’s an ale - maybe my ale has come!) This was a beautiful orangy colour, not translucent at all. The aroma was very much apricot with some grassy hints. The mouthfeel was crisp with nice carbonation. The flavour was malty with hints of apricot. I love this beer!

Sampled at Mondial de la Biere. Great apricot aroma. taste doesn’t follow through quite as much, but overall it’s a very nice fruit beer. great summer beer.

Every once in a while, a great brewery makes a mistake. Apricot Wheat Ale is just that for McAuslan’s Brewery. Granted, when it comes to fruit flavored beers, taste becomes extremely subjective, and although not a fan of fruit flavored beers, I entered this sampling prepared to cut this one some slack given the great output of the brewery that created it. However in this case, or at least insofar as the batch I sampled is concerned, this stuff is absolutely vile. Prior to tasting, I was intrigued by the wheat beer component. I was let down. Compared to German wheat beers this one was pallid at best. The apricot flavoring was the worst part. It lent the beer a flavor reminiscent of plastic, not that I’ve ever consumed the stuff. I found it so horrid that I had to actually change beer glasses rather than contaminate other brands with the residual flavorings of this putrid mess. Stay away from it if you can.

341ml bottle. golden with a thick white head. smells like apricots mostly. the taste is also of apricots but not as intense as the aroma. not too sweet which is good and a hint of wheat. not a bad beer for a nice summer day.

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.
