Hazy straw colour. Big apricot, fresh and a little bit yoghurty. Bitter, fairly astringent with a light apricot accent. Slight tartness in the finish. Nothing really comes together here.

Bottle from bu11zeye. Pours dirty/hazy gold with a slight white head. Nice apricot aroma. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very apricot. Almost perfume level. Not getting much else. Good, if you need an apricot fix. Finishes dry/astringent to me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up apricots, sweet honey, and banana, with hints of sour fruit skins and wheat around.. aiight. The flavor found mostly bready notes and honey at the core, with nice complementary apricot juice joining.. lightly sour and a bit grainy around, with refreshing fruit and tangy wheat on the quick, dry finish. Light-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. this was a decent easy-drinker.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle pours slightly hazy gold with near bright white head. The aroma sends up apicot juice, blunted wheat notes, grainy malts and then sort of International House of Pancakes apricot pancake syrup. The taste starts out with an even mix of apricot and apricot syrup followed by apricot flavored Smarties sweet/tart candies and wheat malts. To midway and into the finish creamy wheat and grainy malts come to the surface with plenty of lingering apricot extract and syrup notes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pale yellow, hazy, small white fizzy head, spotty lacing, mild carbonation. Somewhat of an artificial, or candy like, Apricot nose. Lightly spiced as well. Apricot start, definitely fruity, doesn’t seem terribley artificial, thankfully. The Hefe portion is quite dull tho, not as wheaty of a mouthfeel as I was hoping. Moderate body, flavorful, but just not full enough. Lingering Apricot flavors after the finish, but also with a touch of dish soap. Decent offering, just a bit too thin.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Hazy neon yellow/orange pour. Plenty of apricot aroma but also a whiff of vomit. Thinner palate, bland apricot taste. Not very good.
