Pours a pale orange (should I say apricot?) with a bit of haze a tiny white head. The smell is a bit of apricot alongside some dry wheat. After all the terrible fruit wheat beers I had on a roadtrip this summer, a nice, authentic fruit-infused wheat beer is really nice. Taste is apricot with some wheat dryness; light mouthfeel with good carbonation. Good drinkability, especially for a fruit beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a thin, white head. Nose is fruity, apricots, rubber bands. Flavor is malty, apricot, bland fruits. Medium bodied. tgncc (3132) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2010
The aroma is wheat, cereal grains, light apricot. The appearance is a hazy orange yellow, white head. The flavor is apricot, cereal grains, more fruity than the aroma. The finish is a resiny, earthy hop bittering. Thin to medium in body. Decent. The fruit complements the beer, without overpowering it. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
tap @ bullfrog - hazy orange pour, initial tasty fruitiness, but with an unpleasant edge. Caramel and soda pop fizzle. Smooth medium body, tasty citrus and honey, dried fruit and lemon. Enjoyed the finish more than the front. j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2010
On tap at Bullfrog. Pours a hazy brown with a small white head. Soft apricot, wheat and toast. Gently sweet, light apricot, not artificial or cloying. Nice malt smoothness, long soft gently bitter finish.

Draft @ Six N Save. Wow, who would have thought I could get a Bullfrog draft on the western side of PA ?!? Coloring is just like a glass of apple cider, small white head that dissapears almost immediately to leave a wisp on the top. Aroma is a very subdued apricot and wheat. Flavor is at first wheat and then a really great touch of apricot on the finish, though it’s not cloying or sweet, just enough to enjoy it, but not get sick of it. Finish is dry.

Draft at Bullfrog. Pours coppery with white head. Nose is apricot, peach, malt. Tastes of apricot puree, hopcitrus, and malt. THis is a very solid example of this style. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Draft. Opaque sandy color, nose of heavy apricot and only minor wheat. Minor hop and pepper jazz up the flavor, but it’s still heavy on the apricot and there is more wheat in the flavor, very, very robust wheat. Moderate bodied, slightly sticky. Too heavy in the wheat and apricot, and neither is delicate or intricately balanced. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft, at Bullfrog Brewpub on 7/5/09. Pours a clear copper color, topped with a small white head. Aroma is a bit subdued, wheat is the highlight, but there are some hints of real apricot in the background. Wheat is the dominant flavor as well, but the apricot is a little more evident than in the aroma. There are notes of grain, a little earth, and white pepper in the background. Finish was a tad astringent. Better than I expected. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2009
I was a bit impressed by this beer so I decided to rate it out of the sampler at the brewpub. Usually fruit wheat beers suck a lot but this was rather well done, at least the aroma, which was all natural fuzzy apricot skins. If you could smell fuzzy fruit this would be it. Doesn’t smell artificial or cheap. But with the flavor there is only so much one could do and it comes off as an overly clean and uninteresting wheat beer with some fruit ascents. Its pretty to look at as well, a thick wall of glowing golden that one cannot see through.
