3.53/5 rDev +15.7%
Sampled tonight on 2/2/14 though I tried it once back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.
Pours a clear golden yellow in color with tiny bubbles on the side of the glass. Just a small thin white head is seen with some very light spotty lacing as well. The aroma is faint of apricot and wheat, and not as fragrant as say a 'Pyramid Apricot' which is full of aroma & flavor. The taste of apricot is there but not overpowering and same with the wheat taste. Light and refreshing that leaves your tongue and mouth tingling some due to the high carbonation.

Draught @ So. Portland Pub: This one ours a clear golden color. There was almost no head: just a wisp of a white head. There was no lacing. The aroma is lighter. Faint apricot and wheat. Apricot taste, but not overpowering. Wheat in background. Refreshing.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Stamped 0234P. Sampled on September 5, 2013.
The pour looks like it should with a pale yellow tone and a white fizzy head. Good clarity.
The aroma is all apricot and little to no wheat. There might be a slight clean crisp hop note in there as well but the fruit is the main thing.
The body is light and refreshing which seems to fit the style.
The taste is like the aroma - mainly of apricot and the slightest pale malt note. I pick up little to no wheat here either. Basically a routine fruit beer. But it keeps selling around here so there must be a big enough following.

A: Almost non existant head when poured into a standard pint glass. The foam that is produced is a bright white ring around the edge of the glass made of fine bubbles. A peachy orangy yellow color thats near crystal clear.
S: The nose is ripe with strong sweet apricot not real fruit smelling but more candy or bubble gum. thats it.
T: Very sweet artificial flavor from the apricot. A wheat flavor is detected but subtle, no hop bitterness or flavor that i pick up. Very one sided flavor.
M: High carbonation leaves a prickly mouth feel as you drink the beer. The body is light but the carbonation makes it more filling and less drinkable you might think for a 4.6% beer (even with the sweetness)
O: An overly sweet artificaly flavored fruit beer. I don't mind fruit beers on occasion but they need to be balanced and still taste like beer. this feel far from that mark.
