COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You may be asking yourself why there is a flower on the label of an apricot beer. Well, the tree must blossom in order to fruit. Conversely, this beer blossoms when it is fruited. Juicy, tangy, and oh so perfect, no matter the season.

Pour out of bottle, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big apricot, funk, cheese, some slight lemon, bready notes come through as well. Taste was a mix of sour fruits, apricot, stone fruit into some bread, biscuit, some slight funk, tart lemon, finishing fairly tart.

This has a very solid balance between sweet apricot and lightly sour finish. Crisp and a bit acidic. Tried with Brandon at the brewery in 2017.

Just an amazing beer. One of my favorites from one of my favorite local breweries. Great apricot aroma combined with a hint of sourness. Sour bit really hits you up front, but fades away into a delicious fruit medley.

About everything I’ve had from Crane has been solid, but Apricot Weiss might be my favorite thing yet. It pours effervescent golden with white foam. Aroma is fruity and has lively, champagne-like yeast esters. Flavor definitely has some apricot - a lot like the sticky, chewy sensations and intense fruity flavor of dried apricots - but there’s other pitted fruit flavors as well. Peach, nectarine, and so on. Flavor is nudged toward sweet, but it retains a fair amount of that Weisse acidity and tartness. If you like Weisse best with woodruff syrup, this is definitely worth a try.

Bottle. A- Apricot, gummies. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, minimal head. T- Apricot, gummies, tart. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, juicy finish. O- Not too shabby. Plenty of apricot but more along the lines of a gummy bear flavor than pure juice. Not near as acidic or sour as I thought it would be. Tasty, nonetheless.

jredmond (8445) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2016
First beer sampled during session 2 of GABF 2016 with Paul and Larry. Pours a deep orange body with thick white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice tart character upfront; notes of sour stone fruits, apricot, peach flesh, juice, zippy tartness, mild acidity - no vinegar, no acetic character. Really pleasant.

ctipping (2179) - Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2016
750 mL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a big white head that doesn’t last but a moment. Smells of apricot, wheat, some yeasty phenols. Tastes of apricot, but it isn’t the freshest apricot. Like an apricot concentrate or candy or something. Strong wheat and mineral flavor in the back end. High carbonation, to the point of changing the flavor. Light body. Nice. Could use some actual tartness beyond just the little lemony tang it has.

koleminer20 (3798) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2016
750 mL bottle shared with Gus. The pour is a darker golden orange with a bright fizzy head and a noticeable lack of lace. The aroma is lightly fruity. There is a bit of apricot flesh and a light tartness, but that’s it. It’s light and clean. Nearly forgettable. The flavor is a little better. The apricot flesh is a bit more present and there is a good tartness. It’s just pretty plain and bland. It’s interesting, but it’s just something that I’m not overly impressed by. The mouth feel is light and slightly syrupy with a bright effervescent carbonation and a lingering apricot flesh on the back. It’s interesting for sure.

This beer was delicious! I thought it was not too sour and had a good overall taste. Highly recommend trying this. Also the brewery itself is nice and I can’t wait to see it develop more.

Poured a cloudy orange color with aromas of light tart wheat, tart apricots, some light musk. Flavors are apricot tartness and some feint wheat, light musk and hay, light soda as well. Very solid fruited berliner.
