Sampled on 2/9/2010 at the brewpub. This fruit wheat beer pours a slightly hazy orange gold color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruit and cereal, apricot and sweet. A medium bodied fruit wheat. The malts are fruity and sweet. The apricot flavors are semi-sweet. The fruit presence is sort of medium. The malts, hops and fruit kind of balance in the middle. Nice carbonation. Good fruit wheat beer. There is a touch of hop bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 23, 2009

On tap at the brewery. I’m not sure if this is the same beer. The brewer says its just the Apricot Wheat, no honey. Either way, its the same idea. Gold color with a small white head. Aroma is straight apricot and a little buttery. Taste is the same. Buttery bread and fresh apricots. I would have prefered more subltety with the flavor, but if you really like apricots, then you’ll like this beer. If you don’t, pass.

On tap at the Schooner’s Brewery/Restaurant in Antioch. Pours a hazy gold with white head. It sure has a solid apricot fruit aroma. It seems to be faint malt or wheated malt sweetness behind the apricot. The flavor is like the nose with big apricot fruit flavors that become tart and slightly sour into the finish. There’s some grainy maltiness hiding behind the fruit. Smells like freshly cut apricots.
