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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

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.

A- Orange hues and it looks still, but a bit cloudy over all.

S- Good fruit smell, really invites you into the beer.

T- Nice balance of fruit not overpowering the wheat, the only bad thing is this ends a with an unpleasant bitterness.

M- Good mouth feel balance the thickness and carb with the flavors very well.

D- If that bitter end taste doesn't bother you then this is very nice and drinkable.

3.53/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Color is a solid cloud of pale yellow, fluffy solidly thick white head thats sits about a pencil width high and sustains well throughout consumption and leaves lace sticking in tiny spots. Aroma is of a fresh light apricot and apricot skins, quite nice, I just so happen to really like apricots so the smell was dead on, just a bit to light, I want more. Anyways...taste has fluffy wheat grain sweetness thats nice and soft and there's a milding sense of fresh apricot and has a nice velvety apricot skin dryness in the finish thats light and playful. Pleasant, smooth, and easy sweetness with a close to medium body feel and light wheaty texture. Refreshing and a bit on the lighter side and has a nice drinkablity, its just a tad shy of memorable. Getting close to the Pyramid version which I really like and don't mind have'n around for beatin' the easy summer heatin'.

Draft at Autumn Brew Review. Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow color with a nice white head. The aroma is very fruity with the apricot and then also has some wheat type notes as well. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty sweet up front with some lingering bitterness as well. Really nice drinker. I could drink this one on a nice hot summer day.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.
