3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer wasn’t miserable or even bland but rather enjoyable and pleasant with the strong aroma of apricot reaching a distance of a foot away from the nose. The appearance is pleasing and the taste is soothing and fruity making a well worth beer for a weekday.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from stem and stein. Pours a hideous apricot with a very small white head. Slight hint of sweetness on the nose. It tastes a bit like baby food on the tongue. Not to my taste.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a very clear amber with small white head which is not what I was expecting from a wheat ale. Lots of sweet apricot in the aroma. Taste starts almost like apricot juice, but quickly is overtaken by a vile fermented fruit flavor which is just wrong. I don’t like this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark honey color, modest, but long-lasting, head, full lace that slides back into the glass. Smell and taste of caramel apricot balanced by sharp malt. Probably best one-at-a-time, but still very good fruit ale. This is so different from some of the earlier comments (and low ratings) that I wonder about the freshness of their samples.

330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki) - shared by oh6gdx after our metro trip from OPP to Tivu - thanks, juovo!
Nasty sweet apricot. Yuck. Imagine Wheach with the peach replaced by apricot. A beer with no sensible reason to exist.
