COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

a sample. It had apricot aroma masking a light bread like note. Poured a straw yellow color maybe a little more golden. taste was initally wheat, and mild wheat at that, but a mild apricot flavor finished out which kinda seemed forced, as it seemed to linger in after taste for a while. glad it was only a sample.

This is a bit too wet. I like the sweet dry apricots but the wheat flavor does not seem to mesh well. I realize this is a predominately wheat beer but it smacks a bit on a bitter barley side for me.

Bottle. Right off the bat I must say I quite like apricots so Im predisposed to liking this. Pours a clear pale yellow-gold with lots of bubbles and a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma is mostly apricots followed by grain along with some yeast and faint hops -- just O.K. Slightly watery flavour starts with a big apricot taste followed by wheat and light hops in the finish. Light bodied. For what it is its decent, it would make a pleasant summer patio beer -- overall its just average.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow/gold with a white head. The beer is filtered, so much of the aroma and flavor associated with a typical wheat beer is not present in this brew. This beer has a pleasant aroma of fresh apricots. The apricots also come through in the flavor. Very easy to drink. A nice summer beer.

Lightly hazed blonde with a thin white head. Light clean apricot aroma. In moouth, a smooth apricot ale, but the fruit is rather artificial. Light bodied quaffer. Free taster. August 26,2006 at Greenes Tavern.

DarkStar22769 (100) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2006
12 oz bottle; poured a light straw colour with a medium head that disappeared while large anxious bubbles streamed to the top. Aroma is light apricot (maybe more than light...it reminded me of taking the top off of my grandmothers homemade apricot jam jar). Sweet malt undertones but its all apricot. I am concerned that it might be synthetic flavour or something else but the commercial descritption attests otherwise. Flavour is a tangy wheat with just the lightest of apricot at the tail end of it. Its rather soft. Its nice and not overpowering. Fruit beers really arent my thing but this is alright.

(draft) White head atop clear straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, apricot, some honey. Taste is medium sweet, apricot, light banana. Light body with light stickiness.

Draft at Colter Bay in Buffalo NY. Not much aroma, but what I could get was wheat malt and apricots. Flavor is pretty much what you would expect. Lots of apricot flavor, weak malt backbone, not much sweetness. Thin refreshing finish. A lawnmower beer.
