I eyed this portion of the sampler disdainfully. Well, it came, somebody has to drink it, & I probably shouldn't give it to my ten year old. Here goes nothing.

Wheaty look about it, fuzzy, cloudy yellowish. Nose isn't much to write home about, bit of apricot, grassy, plainy.

Apricot Wheat then decides to come out & be just plain good. This oculd have been brewed by the masters of fruit, New Glarus, the apricot is perfect: not medicinal, not syrupy, plain old good fruit. The wheat is drowned out almost entirely; tiny hop bite on the end. Nice summer sipper, this could take on a lot of BMC drinkers & make them smile.

Very good beer & the surprise of the night. Only the second one we'd sipped & it promised really good things to come.

Pours a finger of white head. A hazed golden yellow.

Aroma: Apricot and wheat flavors. Some spice and sweetness. A bit of citrus mixed in.

Taste: Amazing taste. Straight up apricot. Very fruity. Very fresh. A little bit of wheat and spice. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Clean and easy drinking. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable beer. The apricots were spot on. Very sessionable. I could drink a fair amount of this.

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.

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.

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.
