COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Brewmaster had added his own twist to this traditionally-brewed Weizen, which pours to a cloudy, golden amber colour. The result is a craft brew with a hint of apricot to give it a refreshing seasonal taste.

Aroma is almost a complete apricot with a slight malt sweetness. Taste is again pretty apricot heavy. Some hints of citrus and coriander here. Not much hopiness if any at all. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a head that is a pearl white and retains well.

Un peu trouble, couleur jus de pches, elle met en nez doffensives notes de fruits artificiels, comme des relents de soda, de cooler la framboise et/ou aux agrumes. En bouche, cest plus doux et malt quannonc, avec une rondeur acceptable, un petit acidul subtil, et une finale en crales blondes relativement charmante. Une des plus grandes disparits nez vs. bouche quil mait t donn de dguster. Au final, elle frle la note de passage mais ses dfauts trop lourds finissent par la couler au fil darrive.

WheatKing (1329) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - APR 23, 2014
On tap at Garricks, Victoria. Pours Brilliant cloudy deep gold, white head. Nose is mainly medicinal apricot with some wheat flavour, heavier than a heffe really. Flavour is medicinal apricot front and centre. Not so great. Clean finish saves it a bit.

Minderbinder (3422) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle 341ml. Pours hazy orange with low white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of fruits, apricots, bananas. Taste is of fruits (apricots, bananas), citrus, slight bitterness, some acidity. Artificial stuff. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Apricots are not too bad, but all of that seems a bit artificial. Not really refreshing.

Aroma: very particular dry apricot aroma with notes of peach. Appearance: unfiltered light orange colour Taste: also very obvious apricot taste not too much else here, no unpleasant aftertaste Palate: could use a bit more carbonation, a bit thin and watery on the tongue Overall: a nice refreshing summer weizen that is a good alternative to the standard bananad and cloves wheat beer. Just a straight forward beer

BiereLuc (1266) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Bire ambre orange avec une belle effervescence. Le nez est fruit (abricots-oh!) et vaguement teint de crales fraches. En bouche, labricot sexprime ds lentre presque aussi bien que dans la St-Ambroise Abricot qui est ma rfrence dans le genre sans monopoliser le bilan des saveurs. Des pointes plus acidules (bl-hey!) viennent donner un ct rafrachissant irrsistible au produit. Plus ou moins mon genre, mais grandes lampes au soleil, jen redemanderais assurment.

Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is spicy wheat, apricot, coriander, and spicy hops. Flavor is spicy wheat, malt, apricot, no hops or bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

YUCK! Normally, Okanagan Springs line of beers are fantastic examples of craft brewing. However, this particular entry is not - I imagine even wheat and fruit beer aficionados will not enjoy this one. Smells like sweet apricots, and is inviting. Pours a pale orange colour, almost looks attractive for a beer of its type - the colour seems to be exactly like the colour of a ripe apricots skin. Unfortunately, the taste is awful. Imagine swallowing liquid glycerin soap with apricot flavoring, and youve got a general idea of what this tastes like. Ridiculously sweet, almost sickeningly so - combine that with the wheaty graininess and you have one awful beer. Avoid.

Cloudy with little head. Very sweet smell and a taste to match. Can certainly taste the apricot. I personally find it a bit too sweet but it was ok for what it is - a summer fruit beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewthfcmuir (32) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
Cloudy orange with off white head that doesnt last. Aroma of grainy malt and a pleasant amount of apricot. Taste is mildly sweet with a very light amount of bitterness from the hops. A long sweet apricot after taste follows. Overall there are no complaints about this summer beer, Its inoffensive and highly refreshing on a summer day. It could easily use a stronger impact from the hops but its not that bad.
