Very fruity. My favorite summer beer. Refreshing, but nothing more than that.

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.

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.

AleRider78 (449) - - APR 10, 2016
Got a McAuslan/St.Ambroise mixer. Pours a foamy average head. Pale dark amber appearance. Good lacing and retention. Pretty nice aroma of apricot upon first pour. Very flavourful apricot taste with a bit of sweet citrus. Really quite tasty and tons of sweetness. Some tartiness on the palate, not offensive but quite obvious. It can most likely be drunk warm or lukewarm as well as chilled. The taste will still come out. Good stuff, and not what I was expecting at all with that deScription. Deserves another taste!

Nice fruity aroma. Clear golden beer with little white head. Minimal sweet apricot taste otherwise it taste is light bitter. Light body with average carbonation. Drinkable fruit beer.

Idiosynkrasie (5851) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
341ml bottle. Crystal clear, dark orangey, golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet, artificial apricot aroma, hints of butter, nut butter, ester. Taste is slightly bitter hoppy, minimally wheaty, slightly diluted, minimally artificial hints of apricot, moderate sweetness, minimally tart counterweight. Not as sweet and artificial as the aroma suggested to suspect.

Quick3Beers (749) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pours a clear straw from a bottle, extremely little head. Apricot/white grape juice aroma, similar flavor, maybe somewhat strong like an extract or schnapps or something. Not a great beer.

sir__v (1689) - Lille, FRANCE - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear golden blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: apricot, exotic fruits. Apricot yoghurt. Sweet notes. Taste: light body with high fruity taste. Apricot and peach domination. Sweet and fruity notes. Quiet chemical notes for the attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet apricot and yoghurt.

Fatehunter (2050) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours one finger of head on clear straw body. Aroma is lots of apricot. Taste is mild bitter then apricot sweet. Texture is crisp and fizzy. Enjoyable.

LouisFelix (16) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Clear amber. Aromas of apricot, as expected. Taste is pleasant at first, but after only one bottle, the sweetness of the apricot increasingly becomes nauseating. Undrinkable when warm.
