Great beer for hot summer days. Well, for any day really. It’s my favourite from this brewery which says a bit because Okanagan Springs is my favourite brewery.
Anyway it tastes like apricots alright. It is basically a better Aprikat (by Alley Kat). Really easy drinking. One of the only fruit flavoured beers I like.
My only complaint is that it was spelled "Summer Weizen" when Summer is spelled "Sommer" in German, so the English and German kinda clash. Wouldn’t be a big deal but this brewery was founded by Germans. dreamflower (793) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Fruity and floral aroma. Cloudy apricot with a fluffy white head. Taste is fruit and floral like the aroma. I really enjoy drinking this beer. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a BC Liqour Store in Radium, BC on 08/10/2012. Colour: Light orange with hints of grey and yellow. Medium head that disapeared quickly. Nose: Very forthright apricot...not just a hint, also some apple. Some spring flower garden and cotton candy. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Perfumy and floral up front. Apricot reapears in the middle and then some soft candied malt late. Very refreshing and quite nice. prairielove (4) - - APR 18, 2014 does not count
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 Appreciator (26) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Pours a creamy cloudy light orange with a large white head with a rather aggressive pour. Inviting welcome of medium intensity. Fruity, malty, perfumed types of smells. Pulled apricot (obviously because it says that on the label) must, spices, and other unplaced citrus. Medium intensity taste with a light to medium body to it. medium aftertaste with a robust creamy texture. Sweet, sour, hoppy apricot flavors with the must really coming through. Very refreshing, mildly unbalanced flavor quality. Appreciated.

341ml brown bottle. Golden and cloudy in the glass. Creamy foam. Fruity and perfumey apricot nose, sweetish but appropriate for the fruit in question. Taste has soft apricot up front, sweetness fades into typical weizen territory, grainy, wheaty. Dry finish with grains, slight yeast. Light bodied, creamy, smooth carbonation. Good beer, apricot seems to work well with hefes. It’s sunny and 17C with a light breeze, this beer is going down well. sergelutaba (80) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
On tap at Black Betty Burger & Winebar, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, not much of the apricot, and not much else. Flavor is dry, with wheat, subtle dry lemon peel and maybe a hint of apricot. Subtle and drinkable. Decent beer for the summer.
