Pours clear golden color with one finger white head, which dissipated quickly. Smell - very nice fresh apricot hit the nose right away. They are very bold and cover pretty much everything, you can barely smell malts in there. I don't think it's bad though, as it is a fruit beer and apricot smell is actually very nice. Taste - is not as apricoty as smell (apricots are still there big time) and you can tell that it is actually a beer. Nice bitter hoppiness coming through which combines very well with fruity sweetness. Malts are a lot noticeable as well. I can't really tell if it's wheaty, perhaps it is. Very interesting stuff, balanced, flavorful and rich. It is light at the same time and very drinkable. Definitely worth a try.

A: Golden orange, clear filtered, very little carbonation, a few fingers of off white head.
S: Apricots, peaches, fruit, black tea, little maltiness but mostly stone fruit.
T: Very fruity with hints of tannins like black tea, candied fruit, a hit of Belgian yeast and ends in some dough.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, dry tannins and light syrupy quality.
O: Delicious, refreshing, complex for a ‘wheat’ beer. A good one for a hot day.
