3.69/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours, a hazy orange color. Produced a 2 finger white head.

The aroma is of apricot, peaches, and a straw-like scent.

Tastes similar, but with a light citrus hop presence. Is on the upper end of light bodied. Medium carbonation.

Very easy drinking. Got a growler in mid October. This is more of a summer beer, but it is good stuff. (334 characters)

The apricot and wheat pair nicely giving the impression of a light apricot pound cake with the sweetness squeezed out. Not a lot of sweetness, dry, satisfying with light body and medium carbonation. This is light but very drinkable. (232 characters)

Good appearance, but for the most part this is a malt-based apricot flavor delivery system. There’s a little wheat in the background, but yeah, you better like your apricot if you order this. I like apricot, but apparently not enough to even finish a sample, yeesh. (266 characters)

Originally rated on February 9th 2005 at the brewpub. Aroma was appealing. Cloudy golden look. Quite thin on the palate. Wheat was almost absent. Not much nose, fairly boring. This is quite drinkable and heavily refreshing, but nothing with any level of complexity. (265 characters)

Poured from growler (dated Sept 14, 2009) into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow with high carbonation producing a 2+ inch bubbly white head that fairly quickly dissipates.
S: Pleasant and real apricot smell. Hint of soft wheat. Straight forward, but good.
T: Apricot (not quite as nice as the aroma), mild citrus hops, and soft wheat.
M: Creamy wheat feel. Mild fizz from the carbonation.
D: Very drinkable. Nice fruit wheat brew. Good sessionability. (468 characters)

A - Hazy orange color. Head is white and settles to a thick film. Lacing is strong.

S - Citrus fruit, apricot and pineapple. Not many beer-like smells, kind of just smells like juice.

T - Again mostly fruity but now with little bit more beer taste to it. Like a macro mixed with some fruit juice.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with good carbonation.

D - Eh...Its an okay "fruity beer" I guess. Had it for the first time at a brewfest and I thought it was better then. Maybe I'll try it again in a year or so. (524 characters)

A- A cloudy orange with a white head. Looks to be low carbonation.

S- Well this one is easy, smells like apricot. No booze detected. A slight sweet malt scent. Sort of a earthy clean smell.

T- A nice apricot flavor but not sweet. The wheat gives it an earthy flavor. Slightly crisp, very clean tasting, probably from that Lake Superior water.

M- Very low carbonation. Light body, does not leave the tongue dry.

D- It goes down almost like juice. The low carbonation makes it extremely easy to drink. Exceptional. (519 characters)

So this was a very satisfying brew. I am pretty skeptical of sweet beers, but this was good. Appearanc is blah with a medium orange color and no head or lacing. Smell and taste are very similar, lots of apricot right up front, that unfiltered wheaty zest and maybe a bit of lemon. Mouthfeel is decent medium in body but no carbonation. Drinkability is quite easy. (363 characters)
