UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Bottle at hotel in Auckland, from New World Metro
Hazy pale amber with fluffy white head that collapses to a lacing and peachy aroma. Sweet died apricot nose with a touch of sourness, initially sweet then dry and custardy, residual apricot sourness and a fairly brief finish. Not enough weiss yeast character really.
I like Monteith’s Brewer’s Series. This beer poured a light gold colour, slightly cloudy. There was at least two fingers of frothy, white head that stayed around for a while before eventually fading to very little. There was moderate carbonation. ShaneJ (900) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2013
It smelt nice with apricots being prevalent. The taste was of apricot and wheat with some bitterness. It was a tasty, refreshing beer.
Bottle from 1st Choice. Clear, bright golden, aroma is all sweet apricot jam, drier than expected, apricot dominates flavour as well, some underlying tartness. Not great. gnoff (11065) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2013

Clear straw yellow color, white head. Sweet, sugary, fruity, apricot taste. Apricot aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, fruity, apricot scent.
Draft at Beervana. Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of fresh fruit, citrus. Taste is softly sour apricot, white bread dough. Tasty. DylansDad (664) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 23, 2013
For the girls to pre-load with before they hit the high school ball. Like a wine cooler but made with beer.

From 500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Strong aromas of fresh apricots with lighter scents of bubblegum, wheat and lemon. Taste is similar with a strong apricot taste up front with some zesty lemon and light spice and some sweetness. Finishes quite crisply with an apricot aftertaste. Impressed that it doesn’t have any artificial notes at all. The hefe characters are light and it drinks more like a lager in the body. Unusual and not bad. Tonybaldeagle (62) - - JUL 19, 2013
Fresh and fruity with the complexity of a wheat beer. Would make a wonderful summer drink.

(Bottle) Hazy yellow amber with reasonable white head. Nice fresh apricot aroma with some slightly odd cheese hints. Lovely palate with smooth mouthfilling carbonation. Well balanced taste with prominent, but not dominant, fresh tangy apricot overlaid on citrus, light malt and hints of esters and spice. The complexity dies away leaving the fruity tang with a developing subtle hop bitterness. A very good fruit beer with no cloying sweetness and the fruit nicely balanced with the beer.

Pours a hazy honey golden color, with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma of apricot with a bit of citrus an banana in the background. Taste of mild apricot, some citrus and fresh wheat. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. I am not a fan of fruit beers but this one I actually did enjoy as the apricot was subtle on no extra swetness to spoil it.
