arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Pours a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet apricots. The taste is wheat and apricots. It’s very thin and watery. Super easy to drink but not a very well made beer.

From Dec 2006 Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp) a nice cloudy light gold with a huge head of foam that sharnk slowly leaving a solid layer with some lacing hugging the side of my glass. The smell is big on the apricot, which I like, and has some sweet malt in there as well as a touch of sourness. The taste is very apricot but it's not over done. It has a nice bit of sweetness with the tanginess that you expect from this fruit and makes for a pretty darned good fruit beer. I like this one. And at 4%abv(on the label) it went down very easy. I could drink quite a few of these at one session! Bottom line: A low alcohol brew that literally yells out...I'm a sesssion brew! I recommend it. Thanks to Wasatch for giving me a chance to taste this tasty beer!

Draft @ El Bait Shop - Pours pale yellow, hazy, white head. The apricot compliments the banana notes, no clove to speak of. A bit thin and finishes dry.

Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a big time apricot. A bit artificial but it really stands out. Flavor is a very minor apricot with some wheat malt and finishes quite watery. Not really a hefe, more like a plane old wheat ale with some apricot flavoring added. Nothing remarkable but it’s hit the spot for an after work beer.

12 ounce can. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit and grain. Taste is apricots and wheat. Somewhat sweet, but still very drinkable. Refreshing.

For what this beer is I really enjoyed it. Its what I would consider a session beer and its not suppose to be a true hefeweizen. If you don’t like apricots obviously you aren’t going to like this. I thought it was really well balanced for a fruit beer. The head retention was pretty poor. That may have something to do with the fruit addition...not sure.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured from a 12 oz can apricot color. No head to speak of. Medium body. Flavor is mostly apricot with a hint of banana. Finishes like apricot juice. OK, just.

12 oz. can from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Almost clear with just a little haze. A soapy off white head doesn’t last long. Plenty of apricot in the aroma but some earth notes, too. Flavor is pretty much all apricot and very light on the hefeweizen. Drinks like a cider that maybe had some hefe added.

Pours a cloudy golden straw color. Good head, good lacing.

Aroma is very much apricot. Wheat. Bread crust. Butter. Not much more.

Taste is apricot. Lightly like buttered popcorn. Meh.

Mouthfeel is light. Easy drinking. Sessionablity high.

Overall, it’s not bad. Just somewhat bland. I wouldn’t recommend, and I wouldn’t buy again. It’s bland, it’s boring, but drinkable.
