An easy-drinking wheat beer is light in color and body...perfect for the warmer weather. In crafting this fine ale, we add many pounds of real apricot fruit to create a "secondary fermentation." This creates a gentle wheat beer with just a hint of apricot flavor in the finish. A very drinkable, mildly fruity ale.

From Mar 2007

Pours from 12oz bottle a hazy orange with a small head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving a fine ring around the glass.

The smell smells very much like apricot...imagine that!

The taste is a mix of semi sweet apricot and wheat but it's on the delicate side. A little more oomph with the apricots and this would be a very good taster...still, not a bad drop.

Thanks to Wasatch for this sample!

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Fresh Market, Bedford. Appearance is hazy yellow-orange with nice sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is apricot, candied sugar, mild wheat. Taste is sweet apricot with mild citrus and wheat. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with soft-to-average carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, it reminds me a lot of Magic Hat #9. Not much to it outside of the apricot.

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Slightly hazy straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of stone fruit, tropical fruit, fruit jelly candy. Tastes of buttery popcorn notes, stone fruit. Light body with a dry finish.

This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a soft semi-transparent glossy burnt orange color. Carbonation could be seen rising at a nice pace. No head nor lacing.
The aroma took the sharp sweet wheat to peg down sweet apricot fruitiness. Sticky authenticity.
The flavor played both parts of the apricot to the wheat nicely. Stayed sweet the whole time. Sly punch of the wheat hits the aftertaste and then gives appropriate wheat bite. Quick finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a crisp sweet touch on the tongue. Fantastic sessionability with a nice low carbonation.
Overall, good thing I got this in this month before the weather changes on me. Cause, it’s damn crushable and good for what it is!
