Acquired via trade from Wasatch, so a big “Thank you” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a very pale yellow color with a very thin white head that fades almost instantly and leaves almost no lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is very fruity with the smell of apricots as the name implies, there’s a very faint bit of hops and some wheat.

T: The taste is very tart with a little bit of sweetness. The apricot flavor is quite strong. The malt character is thin and the hops presence is mild. The after-taste is slightly sweet. For an “Apricot Hefeweizen” I’m certainly tasting the apricot but not the Hefeweizen.

M: Crisp with a little smoothness, light body, medium carbonation, clean finish.

D: It’s a little tasty, goes down ok, not filling at all. As with any beer in this style with an apricot flavor, I compare it to Magic Hat #9 and this beer tastes a lot like it. Unfortunately, I don’t like #9, so that’s not really a good thing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Large bubbles that go away quickly and completely. Absolutely no lace. No haze (despite being a hefeweizen). Greenish-gold colored brew.

Sweet apricot smell that reminds me of children aspirin.

The flavor is very sweet and quite fruity. It's almost like someone added fruit juice to a macro-lager. There isn't much flavor outside of this. I detect no hop for balance. Where's the wheat? The aftertaste is syrupy. The body is quite thin considering the sugar content. The carbonation is elevated.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Cloudy yellow colored beer with a slight white head formation.

Smells lightly of apricot. Soda cracker malt scent. Basically though this isn't very aromatic.

Starts out mildly sweet with a mild apricot taste. Mild bread flavor and a hard water taste. Mildly tart taste.

Mouthfeel is light.

Overall not much to this.

Wasatch Apricot Hefeweizen has a thick, fluffy, white head, a hazy, golden appearance, streaming bubbles, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of apricot, tap water, and little bit of wheat. The taste is the same, with a low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium and somewhat slick. Wasatch Apricot Hefeweizen finishes rather wet, watery, and dull. Overall, this is just average.

3.18/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a pale hazy yellow. Big white head on initial pour that quickly disapates to a small cap

S- Apricot aroma very heavy but smells like concentrate. Wheat is not noticable at all.

T- Does not have the overpowering fake-apricot taste as you'd expect from the smell. You get it in the finish though- its a bit bitter. A bit of the wheat does finally come through at the end as well.

M- Thin. Light carbonation. A good summer beer.

D- The light body & sweetness allow for easy drinkability, but the fake-apricot kinda kills it.
