Smells tangy and sweet like apricot jam. Tastes tangy and off-dry with the peachy/apricot fruit notes foremost, their sweetness lending a touch of body to an otherwise light-bodied American Wheat ale. Looks quite pretty. Defined, yet still fairly mainstream. This could be better if brewed with whole fruits, I kept thinking. (Tastes like an extract.)

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 Draught @ The Woolwich Arms, Guelph, ON: I won’t change the rating because it’s a fine beer that deserves a good rating. This is probably the best fruit beer you can find due to the excellent balance and lack of overbearing and cloying sweetness you’ll often find in the style. Having it on draught is worlds above the bottle as well, with all the gentle apricot and peach flavours shining through. Good stuff.<P> Original Rating 06/05/22 355ml Bottle: This one surprised me, I had very low expectations going in as I’ve not yet enjoyed a fruit beer. Aroma is gentle apricot, but not overbearing. Flavour is excellent - only flourishes of apricot and peach, allowing the wheat beer to shine through. It’s more a beer than a juice, which is rare for the style. Loved it, would have it again in a second.

Thanks to Hogtoen Harry for this one, which I really enjoyed. The pour was dark straw, with a soliud apricot and peach aroma and taste. I also noted hopcit and a firm pale malt presence in the nose and palate. This one is a very nice fruit beer, and went very well out on my deck in the sun with some cashews.

sweet peach aroma. Pours a golden brown, thin white head. Yeasty flavour with apricot finish. It is what it is. This is your beer if you like apricots.

Bottle. Pours a orange golden color with a very nice white head. Scents of apricots on the nose. This beer is laden with this fruit, a little sweet but was very nice. I’d definately have this one again. Thanks Blankboy.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 On goûte très bien les apricots, elle est très rafréchissante sans être fade. Pas trop sucré et un peu pétiante, proche d’une lambic sans l’être.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 6, 2006
Light orange in colour with a very small head. Aroma is very enjoyable, reminds me of the aroma you get from spreading Apricot jelly on a toast. Flavours are very light: apricot, some honey with a watery mouthfeel and a clean finish.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2005
Medium orange, not much head. Aroma first apricot but then some wheatiness comes through. In the mouth it’s mild honey with a dash of hops and wheaty tang. Smooth though unmemorable.

Golden and clear. Strong aroma of Apricots. Flavour is wheat and apricot, could use a lot more complexity.

Bottle: Pours a clear medium gold with a thin white head. Aroma is deliciously apricot (like smelling a jar of jelly. Flavour is no where as sweet as the aroma suggests. It’s a bit flat in the flavour in my opinion. I expected alot more, medium carbonation gives a good mouthfeel without being too much. Struggles to get that wheat tartness to the front. Nice clean finish. An enjoyable beer but I expected more really.
