Got this as part of the Mcauslan holiday gift pack from last year. It’s almost winter again but should have drank this back in the summer, would’ve made a great summer beer. Very good buttery fruity aroma, almost like a peach cobbler. Fruity taste is subtle; overall a great wheat beer.

Can - Pours a gold-orange with white fizzy top. Aroma of pale wheat malt, apricot, and a floral presence. Tastes of pale wheat, apricot, grape, mild hops end.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Pale orange with a firm white head. Very apricot forward aroma with wheat and other fruit notes. Medium bodied. Apricot leads the way in the flavor, too. Some light bitter citrus, a faint spice, and sweet wheat. Very refreshing.

tmoreau (3708) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2016
16 oz. can poured to glass at Dell Rhea’s Chicken Basket in Willowbrook, IL., displaying a fairly clear, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of cream colored head foam that slowly reduced to a persistent ring & film, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose was light, fruity perfume that was as apricot preserves, with soft wheat. Light to medium bodied, the taste was modest sweetness & apricot, with lively carbonation, and a subtle, seltzery nature to the effervescence. Tasty and potentially sessionable.

Solid fruit beer with a big kick of apricots, a hint of pepper to give it a bit of a warm spiciness to it. A bit too carbonated but it’s such a great summer time patio beer.

A pretty decent brew. Pours a dark golden. Big apricot aromas.. Reminds of the apricot jam my mom used to make. Nice sweetness. But not too sweet. I feel like I get a bit of aspartame in the finish.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a large can, thank you KevDawg. Nice aromas of Apricot! A solid crushable summer brew!

PapaCanard (77) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Le goût de l’abricot est très présent, au nez puis sur la langue. Un test à l’aveugle le confirme. A part ce détail, cette bière est assez quelconque.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2016
11.5 oz. bottle from Pacific Liquor. Pour is amber with a nice white head. Luscious apricot and wheat aroma. Not too sweet and has the right amount of apricot flavor, goes down easy, well balanced. Would repeat.

chinchill (4267) - South Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2016
can into a lager glass. Appearance - Amber colored body with a tall white head that soon dies down to a thin but durable top coat; Nice patterned lacing is left sticking to the glass. Moderate visible carbonation. Aroma - Wheat bread and lot of apricot jam. Taste - Apricot start to finish. Various vague soft ripe fruit and bready notes interweave. Feel - Medium carbonation; Semi-dry finish. Overall: worth a try if you enjoy apricots or fruity wheat beer.

Golden clear with a brief white head, medium bodied and peaches and apricot aroma. The finish is cloying, this is not a well crafted fruit beer.
