3.4/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

I won a 6-pack of these as part of a prize package in a homebrew competition.

341ml bottle served in 16 oz pint glass.

Pours a clear "apricot" colour. 1/4" white head forms and recedes to a thin cap. No lacing.

Smells strongly of apricots. It seems ALMOST artificial, but is appealing.

Taste is soft wheat malt, with apricot in the background. Finishes dry and almost nutty. Not sweet, and the hops are there.

Mouthfeel has some lively carbonation, yet it is soft and smooth.

Despite having a fair bit of flavour, yet also being refreshing, the drinkability is just average for me. This is not something I'd want more than 1 of at a time.

An elegant fruit wheat beer if there ever was one. This isn't some sickly sweet, artificial tasting mess... you can tell that it is a well made beer first, with fruit flavour second. That being said, this really isn't my thing, but I've got to tip my hat to McAuslan for brewing a fine gateway beer that could sway the alcopop crowd. I would never buy this for myself, but would not hesitate to recommend it to inexperienced beer drinkers.

3.65/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Serving type: can
