3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly hazed peach amber color, with a couple inches of thick cream colored foam. Nice head retention, decent lacing. Aroma of fresh apricot, with just a bit of citrus and yeast.
Fruity flavor, not really sweet, and not really tart either. The flavor is all peach - the flavor of the peaches you get in a can of fruit cocktail. Not overly potent. A touch of citrus in the finish. Smooth and mellow beer throughout, gentle carbonation, and very thirst quenching.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very fruity aroma. Doesn’t smell much like beer but I did detect some malt in the nose. Hazy dark gold in color, somewhat like a weissbier. Small head; not much lace. Peach flavors are somewhat subdued; certainly not as bold as it is in the aroma. Not knowing this was a peach flavored beer, I probably would have guessed it was a honey lager. Pleasant beer that should be released in July as it would make a good refresher. This one will please the pale lager folks and the ladies.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hazy orange color with a quickly disappearing head. Good aroma of fresh peaches. The taste drifts more towards apricot. Yeast covers up too much of the peach for me, which would have been the real highlight. Still, it’s nice that it’s not overwhelmingly sweet like I figured it would be. Tasty summer session alternative to wheats.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A light golden ale brewed with Belgian yeast, and topped off with additions of peach and apricot. In what state or derivation, they don’t say.
Appearance: throughly hazed and cloudy apricottish hue, decent white head that slims down assuredly.
Aroma: apricot and a bit of peach, and nothing but, except for tiny hop traces...nice, nice...
Lands easily on the palate, delivers the promised fruit flavor, and slides off slowly and peacefully. Citrus twist joins in on the fun and distracts not from the easy drinkability. Medium bodied, far from thin, but very tasty and a breeze to toss down the gullet. Great texture...I wonder how much, if any, wheat was employed?
Sweet, but not cloying, fruity finish, ends on a slightly dry note.
Resoundingly satisfying, will do quite nicely when the temperature rises and the warm breezes blow.
Foes of fruity brews should stay far away, however.
I am not one of those.

A near copy of O’Gara’s Apricot Wheat, from the brewpub in St. Paul. Light, fruit aroma. Orange with no head. Flavor is apricots supplemented by a gentle wheat taste. Sour. A good peach beer.
