Pours a hazed golden orange color with a white, short lived head. The aroma is heavy on the apricot, with some grainy, bready wheat elements on the fringes.

In the taste, a nice fruity apricot and peach flavor with a grainy, malted wheat flavor that is quite nice. It is fruity, but I never forget the fact I'm drinking a beer. This has alot in common with other apricot infused beers on the market, and for the most part, the Otto's apricot ale stands up to any other apricot beer I have had. There is a small hop bitterness that keeps the beer from cloying.

Medium bodied, smooth and fruity, but with a clean, balanced finish.

Overall, as a fruit beer, this is above average. Drinkable and with a bit of character, as evidence why it was the first beer out of the sampler case to be gone. Obviously has crossover potential because all my friends really liked it.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a cream soda color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of mild apricots, some grains. Taste is light, grains, wheat, some apricot, not exactly bursting with flavor. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while not terrible, really nothing special about this beer.

I purchased this at Wegmans enjoyed chilled in a pils glass.
the color is hazed amber with golden hues, thick white cap lace sticks well and retention is good with fine bead. The smell is fragrant, fruity and floral with slight extract type sweet odor. The feel is good, moderately sweet though, moderate carbonation with mild body and semi dry finish

the taste is pretty decent, has a flavor of extract which means sweet like apricot soda if there were such a thing, mild wheat taste adds to the flaor with subtle yeast creaminess adding to the body but lends little flavor. Overall this is above average drinkability wise, but not by much...it is a pretty standard apricot flavored wheat, but not bad for what it is
