From tap at Saint Bock. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and slight citric apricot. Fruity, artificial and citric. Quite intense in flavoured. Sweet and citric dense flavoured finish. Canadian radler?

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A hazy orange beer with a very small head. The aroma is sweet with powerful notes of apricot. The flavor is of apricot and coriander - but I don’t like it. And the body is even thin.

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 3, 2013
Bottled (shared with FatPhil). One of the fastest ratings ever done, running over Rautatientori in Helsinki to catch my train, and opening + drinking from this while running (colour sample taken from the air while pouring a bit of the beer on the ground). Orange colour, no head sample possible under the conditions when tasting it. Aroma was wheat and apricot in a rather sweet way. Flavour is rather similar with also some mild grainyness to it. In such an ok fruit beer, but at the same time rather sweet.

omhper (19243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Sampled draught at Brutopia, Montréal.
Hazy golden, Loads of apricot in the aroma. Sweet with some wheat character. Light flavoured and one dimensional, somewhat fizzy mouthfeel. At least it stays away from being cloying.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
Golden color. Quite strong apricot aroma, maybe too much artificial. Strange mouthfeel, quite dry, artificial fruitness, wrong bitterness (doesn't match with the apricots). Disappointing final.

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are lots of apricot, malt and hops. Nice and fruity.

TBone (12479) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
Bottled 341 ml (Arkadia Alko, BB 01/2012)
Deep golden color, good white head. Aroma of apricot, crystal malty sweetness, some cardboardish notes. Light to medium-bodied, crisp carbonation. Quite sweet, a bit harsh and cardboardish, some apricot and banana fruity flavors. Tastes like name says: apricot wheat ale. I am not a big fan of these. Probably a bit better on tap when fresh.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2000
UPDATED: APR 3, 2004 Dull copper colour - very ugly. Slight toasty note and lots of apricot essence. The body is slightly cloying, the finish shows some husky malt notes and plenty of syrupy apricot. Overall tastes heavily of apricot syrup, except when the malts step up to clash.
