22 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with a long lasting, thin, fluffy,white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of wheat malt and apricots. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is wheat malt, apricots and hint of hops. Finish is short and sweet. Nice beer for ladies.

12oz bottle care of my old man. There is a first... the pops gifted me with a couple bottles of this after a recent trip to state college. "Stop drinking all that dark shit and give this here a try. I like it, maybe you will too." The brew appears a perfectly clear color of pale gold. A finger of white froth appears and dissolves down to a thin film around the ring of the glass. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a thin film atop and a bit of spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The aroma has an unmistakable scent of perfume-like apricot. It smells a bit sugary almost like a bit of candy like those peach rings. I can't help but think the apricot inclusion here is artificial as it just doesn't smell all that natural. The candy-like sweetness is just too distinct to not be augmented some way. It really doesn't matter how warm the brew gets, the perfume fruit character is really all I smell.

The taste has the apricot flavoring that is a bit sweet and artificial tasting in a way reminiscent of what the aroma leads on. Instead of having that earthy, natural taste, it is sweet and candy-like. Fortunately, there is a bit of cereal grain flavoring present that brings this back into the spectrum of the advertised wheat beer category. The aftertaste is also candy-like with a hint of something almost like bubblegum mixed with a dissolved flavor of clove and... corn?

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. For a summertime offering to just slam back, I guess it fits the bill. But it isn't something that I would seek out again. The candy and artificial qualities of this I just didnt find to be entirely appetizing.

Pours clear dark yellow with a fizzy white head..lots of carbonation

Smell is pretty nice. Apricot and peach with fresh yeast aromas and crackers and grain.

Right on par for the style and then some. Refreshing apricot and tame fruit flavors, not overly sweet, balanced with wheat and yeast and very little bitterness.

Pretty light, crisp, good on a hot day.

Good representation from Otto's but not my favorite from the brewery.
