Now Quaffing: Lost Coast Apricot Wheat

I was surprised to find this on tap when I went to work tonight--always nice to see new lost coast brews. Pours a nice hazy, straw color with a nice full white head. The apricot is noticeable in the aroma, but very subtle. The taste was a nice balance of the apricot (not too sour or acidic like some apricot lambics), and a sweet, grassy, wheat (also not sour at all which was nice). The apricot lingers slightly on the palate, but the beer itself is very smooth and drinkable (especially when its 80+ degrees outside), and finishes fairly clean for an unfiltered wheat. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this is a good example of what a "Fruit-wheat" should be.

On tap at Library Alehouse in Santa Monica, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace from randomly on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat and apricot aromas just as the name promises. Taste is of wheat and slightly tart apricot flavors. This beer has an extremely high level of carbonation that is just too much in my opinion. Overall, this is a pretty good fruit wheat beer that I wasn't expecting too much from.

On tap served in a pint glass.

A - Clear golden with one finger white head and minimal lacing, min head retention

S - Um, you guessed it. APRICOT! A little too much of it.

T - Yep, same thing here too, not trying to be cute, just too much fruit. Pretty sweet, but smooth and refreshing.

M - Light body, moderate carbonation.

O - Not my thing, almost like a bitter fruit drink more than a beer.

Half finger head without any lacing to speak of on a golden crimson hazy body.

S: lots of apricot and peach aromas. These dominate anything else that might be there.

T: wheat and grain with lots of apricot throughout. Simple overall and I suspect that is purposeful.

M: light to medium body, moderate to high carbonation.

Overall this is good at wants to be... A fruity somewhat light beer for all the enjoy.

Had this on-tap, served on a Pint glass.

A: the place where I had this beer had very little lightning so it was a bit hard to tell, but I saw a deep dark golden color, only a superficial head. Little to no lacing.

S: very mute. Hints of apricot, sweet fruits and honey.

T: bland...some apricot and wheat flavor that ends with a citrus note, mostly orange.

M: light to medium body, light carbonation, watery.

O: not very happy with this choice. I certainly won't be going back to this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear, light gold colour with a small short lasted off-white head. Nice lacing.

Big, pungeant apricot aroma. Very light tartness.

Smooth light malt sweetness with a hint of grain. Good apricot flavour which is a touch over the top but still good.

Medium body with moderately low carbonation. Good.

A solid effort with a good if slightly over the top apricot flavour. I’d like a little more wheat character to shine through.

A - Apricot hue, hazy, with a wispy head and spotty lace.

S - The nose is very fruity (apricots mostly), and is almost potpourri like, but is fairly nice.

T - The taste is quite fruity and yet it is also rather dry, offering a simple pale grain and mineral water base with lots of apricot lingering on the finish.

M - The feel is watery and lightly carbonated which happens to serve this beer quite well.

O - A (better-than) decent fruit beer, and very refreshing.

A: poured an orange brown with yellow highlights with a half finger of head and left decent lacing on the glass.

S: the apricots really do run the show on the aroma with faint wheat and malt notes; fruity aroma for sure.

T: the taste is of candy apricots with a pretty decent malt backbone but doesn't have a whole lot of wheat charater goin on which is not a bad thing for me.

M: the brew was medium body with a good amount of carbonation that had a sweet malty and creamy finish.

D: drank surprisingly very good and wasn't overwhelming on the sweetness. I honestly really enjoy this beer, so all you fruit beer haters can suck it pimp.
