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.
