Elitch Gardens Orchard Wheat is a 4.8% ABV unfiltered American-style wheat made with pale malt, malted wheat, German Saphir hops, kaffir lime leaf and a small dose of natural peach flavor. It’s a complex, ultra-refreshing wheat beer with hints of citrus and fruit in a perfect-for-summer beer.

Draught at Wynkoop, October 2012, GABF week. Hazy gold color and almost no carbonation. Some apple aroma and a little apple flavor with flavor of a sweet American style wheat beer and surprisingly lots of apricot.

Aroma - peach, wheat malt; Appearance - light golden, opaque, fluffy head, laces very well; Taste - mild wheat front, peach flavor is noticeable though not overpowering, subtle back, finish has a slight citrus tang; Palate - faint crispness, average body for the style; Overall - wonderfully drinkable and quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Pour on tap at the Denver Summer Brew Fest, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruits, slight grass, hints of pepper, slight clove, yeast notes as well. Taste is pretty nice, slight yeast and clove notes, touch of white pepper, banana, slight white fruit, finishing fairly sweet.

Opaque apricot hue with a small thin (but persistent) head. Very apricot/peach aroma, like sniffing fruit puree. Flavor was a little more beer-y with a light sweet cereal malt tone, but is very overridden by peaches and apricots, with a beer finish...not quite sure how else to describe that. The finish just ends like a beer, with some alcohol and a light effervescent bitterness.
