gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, - AUG 17, 2012
Golden orange pour without much head. Stong synthetic scent. Smells like a Strawberry Shortcake doll. Smells like its going to taste sweet. The actual taste is thankfully more beer like than the scent. Tastes like a fairly watery generic beer with apricot flavoring. Just doesn’t taste natural. All that said its easy to drink and very refreshing out here on the patio.

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Appearance: Pours a clear light gold body with a 1-2 finger head. I expected a more cloudy body for a wheat beer, a bit disappointed. Smell: I can smell the apricot from far. Smells fresh & zesty. Pretty much the only aroma i can pick out but it’s good. Taste: Apricot is more discreet but present. Lends a nice freshness to it. Nice malted wheat in there makes it pleasant. Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, refreshing, light and smooth.

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2016
Bright dark golden color with moderate pearly activity. Slightly creamy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with weak legs. Flavors of apricot, peach, sweet grains, caramel, faint wheat and corn, some herbal spices. Highly sweet with a mild dash of bitter leafy hops. Slick and smooth medium body with soft crispy carbonation. Light strength finish, lingering sweet malts and candy like ester fruits. A bit syrupy with tons of sugars, a little too much. Incredible inviting smell of fruits, while the flavors are pretty good. Not so much the mouth feel, which is a bit dull and slightly lacking freshness from an oily feel. Overall good quality craft.

ddesprez (85) - Saint-Marcel, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2016
La robe est dorée et parfaitement claire, avec une fine mousse qui se dissipe rapidement. Les effluves sont enivrants: l’abricot explose au nez tandis que les arômes levurés font également sentir leur présence.

Cajun (532) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Can - Pours a gold-orange with white fizzy top. Aroma of pale wheat malt, apricot, and a floral presence. Tastes of pale wheat, apricot, grape, mild hops end.

3.6
Capa (3257) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Pale orange with a firm white head. Very apricot forward aroma with wheat and other fruit notes. Medium bodied. Apricot leads the way in the flavor, too. Some light bitter citrus, a faint spice, and sweet wheat. Very refreshing.

3.4
tmoreau (4303) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2016
16 oz. can poured to glass at Dell Rhea’s Chicken Basket in Willowbrook, IL., displaying a fairly clear, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of cream colored head foam that slowly reduced to a persistent ring & film, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose was light, fruity perfume that was as apricot preserves, with soft wheat. Light to medium bodied, the taste was modest sweetness & apricot, with lively carbonation, and a subtle, seltzery nature to the effervescence. Tasty and potentially sessionable.

silvorgold (40) - Brandon, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
Solid fruit beer with a big kick of apricots, a hint of pepper to give it a bit of a warm spiciness to it. A bit too carbonated but it’s such a great summer time patio beer.
