Hazy yellow/golden with a small white head. Quite a lot of apricot both in the aroma and taste. Also notes of hay and bread. Drinkable but almost too sweet.

Sampler at Haymarket. Pours hazy golden amber with small white head. Aromas of wheat and tons of apricot. Flavors of wheat and apricots mainly. Not bad though. deyholla (12205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy pale amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a note of sweet apricot backed by sweet grain and a bit of hay. Flavor is sweet with apricot and other light fruit with backing sweet grains. NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours a nice enough, slightly hazy gold with a sticky white head. The nose is juicy, lots of tart peach/apricot notes and some faint fresh baked bread. On tasting, light tartness, all about the fruit juice. Very fruit forward and really overshadows the base beer. Huh. Okay.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy dulled golden orange, good haze, frothy offwhite head sits as a thicker film, laces ok. Aromas are touches of apricot and flaked wheat, bread, dough, light touch of lemon. Quite mellow, perhaps even too light. Maybe a faint touch of white grape. Initial is considerably more flavorful, offering a lighter bodied wheat ale, bread dough meshes with tart apricots, some sweetness from the fruit, faint lemon peel, bread dough, and touches of yeasty spice. Really, considerably more tart than I thought it would be, leaving a lingering tart apricot feel on the palate, a touch sour, with lingering juicy apricot and then rolling into the typical flaked wheat and bread dough, bread yeast, and a fairly clean finish with some lingering tart fruit and faint yeastiness. It’s really quite pleasant, highly quaffable, and leaves a good tartness on the palate in the beginning, making those who dread sweet cloying American fruit wheat beers rejoice. A really nice fruit wheat from Pete. It does get a touch sweet up front as you settle into the beer more further in, but overall, I enjoyed the beer. A touch of lemon, battling the sweet and tart apricot. Solid, but not a world mover. Probably better than the Raspberry version. Though I think I rated it just a smidge lower..
