On tap at the brewpub in Eureka.

Pour is a hazy, medium amber. Very fine head and sticky lacing.

Aroma: Fruity, with only vague apricot, and hints of biscuits and bananas.

Flavor: Soft fruits and light wheat bread.

Feel: medium-light bodied with crisp, medium-high carbonation level. Semi-dry finish.

O: OK, and with restrained fruitiness.

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.
