On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a minimal head. Low visible carbonation. Sweet apricot aroma dominates with a touch of grassy wheat. Syrupy apricit flavor, something akin to the syrup that they can fruit coctail in. Some actual wheat peeks thru on the finish. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel with an intense effervescence on the tongue as the beer rolls around in the mouth. Humm, apricot wheat. About as good as I expected. One for the non-beer drinking ladies. egajdzis (6581) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Poured a dark golden color with a small white head and light lacing on the glass. Sweet, fruity, apricot. Little wheat detected, and mild carbonation. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Draft at Bullfrog. Pours a copper body with a thin white lacing. Full bodied wheat with hints of coriander and citrus. Light apricot and dry earthy fruits. Crackers and earthy bitterness. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy pale golden and a thin lasting head. Aroma is dry crackery wheat with a moderate apricot fruit presence, toasty malts, and a bit weak- light fruity citrus hop as well. Flavor is fruity- apricot an ok malty sweet wheat- mostly dry crackery malts and a light crisp refreshing finish. Ok. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
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.

Pours cloudy with yeasty film in the apricot. Not a ton of aroma on the nose and not a lot of wheat on the tongue. Has a bit of bitterness in the finish which is the only interesting thing about it. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 7, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazy orange with golden notes and a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of light apricot, Cherrios and wheat. Flavor of apricot, honey, wheat and some other grains. 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. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2006
From growler during the sweet Steelers victory over the Colts. Mild sweet malt aroma with good apricot aromatics. Fruity dusty hops. Perfumy and some carbonic gaseousness. Hazy amber gold liquid with thin off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light spicy and dry apricot skin. Malty sweetness with bitter nutty fruit skin finish. Hoppy resins, a little chalky. Notes of vanilla and cherry wood. A little harsh at the end with dusty wheaty flavor. 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.
