Appearance is good, a bright but cloudy amberish orange color, decent off white, bubbly head. The smell is definitely of apricots, but there is also a wheat like backbone. The taste, though not too deep or complex, is delicious. Great balance of refreshing wheat, with sweet but tart apricot flavor. The sweet aspect is far from over powering, it is quite balanced. Good, refreshing mouthfeel. I could drink this stuff all day and night long, really any time of year and have a good time. Probably my favorite fruit-beer ever.

I had a small sample of this after a couple other beers and decided to re-rate from a growler....Good apricot flavored wheat beer....apricots evident on the nose and the taste but in a subtle way....a nice wheaty base to this lighter bodied american style wheat ale...The apricots flavor is about perfect....not overdone but strong enough to taste... between medium and light bodied...the fruit flavor is very fresh and juicy...I like that and I like the way it meshes with this beer....this is how flavored wheat beers should taste...also some subtle vanilla that really adds depth....nice brew here..

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.

At the brewhouse, noted at 5.4 ABV.

Cloudy orange, muted amber-orange.

Great fresh apricot in nose and flavor.

No over sugared nastiness sometimes associated with fruit beers.

Wheat malt carries the apricot.

Berry noted in the aroma.

Nice carbonation.

I have seen this on tap many times at Fitgers but did not try it until today. Served in a standard straight sided pint, the beer is a hazy gold with thick off-white head. It has a big nose of apricot backed by grains.

It lives up to its name, apricot, apricot and more apricot. But you know what; it is not over powering as the beer is balanced by a solid wheat core and some perfume notes from the hops.

The mouth is medium with very active carbonation. The bubbles are very small and act as a scourge to keep the beer from being cloying. Well done and tasty.
