Hazy peach color with a billowing puffy white head. Good lacing. Tons of peaches on the nose.

Medium body with big peach flavor throughout. Slight syrup like finish with what feels and tastes like a touch a wheat. Definitely tastes fresh. Slight fizziness. Tastes like peach juice with a splash of beer. Like a peach shandy. I like it a bit cause I love peaches but really this barely tastes like beer so I can barely consider it one. Tastes more like peach syrup.

Very sweet, think they could go without the use of sugar. Smells like (you guessed it) apricots, almost like a dried kind. Could use more of the ale which is present but subtle. Has potential to be good but needs to be rebalanced. Also not a fan of mixing beers after they've fermented. Worth a try on a hot day but in my opinion not anywhere near as good as the st-Ambroise apricot wheat ale which is probably found most places this is (in Canada). Cheers!

16.9 oz bottle which cost way too much at $6.49. Cloudy orange color, good head, looks nice. Smells like apricots and sugar, eh. Tastes like apricot syrup and sugar and not much else. Cloyingly sweet and unpleasant, I would never buy this again. Dry Dock does a much better job of capturing the apricot without the sguary sweetness.
