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.

20th August 2008. Pale gold beer with a very slight haze. Low carbonation. Clean but watery beer with a tepid apricot flavour. Inoffensive but too watery and yet another in a long line of dissapointing fruit wheat beers. Somebody muct crack this style?

Oakes (16090) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Upstate NY still rocking the 1990s beers I see. Cloudy tan with no head. The aroma and colour have an apricot bent, definitely syrup or essence. Fairly clean, and it doesnt really go with the golden ale base, but its far from awful.

jtclockwork (15426) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
Mild apricot and citrus taste. Kind of on the bland side. Very watery. Not much of the traditional wheat characteristics of coriander and orange peel that youd expect. Rated 4/9/10

bhensonb (14482) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours slightly hazy gold with a foamy white head. Mild apricot aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is a bit sharp - suggesting citrus or perhaps unripe fruit. Apricot is the flavor, but its not all heavy like the one from Pyramid. Finishes towards dry and tart.

Drake (13146) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2009
12 ounce bottle courtesy of j12601. Thanks Jay! Pours a very slightly hazy peach color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma of creamy apricots, citrus. Faintly bready. Taste is tart apricots and apples. Thin-medium bodied. Goes down smooth. It is what it is. Know that!
