A - Orange pour with a white foam head that settled. No lacing of note. Slight carbonation.

S - Strong smell of apricots, similar to Snapple peach tea. It slightly overwhelms the grain aroma. Sugary sweet smell.

T - Sweet flavor of apricot in sugar syrup and light wheat. Easily a summer favorite, this quenches the thirst and gives some nod to your sweet tooth.

M - Slightly syrup thick. Leaves a sugary coating in the mouth.

O - Good summer beer and for those that enjoy strong fruit flavor.

Bottle to hfs sniffer

A:orange in color and totally translucent with lots of carbonation and thin white head

S: this is one that is as advertised it smells like apricots it's so sweet smelling its almost fake like a sports drink interesting for sure

T:unfortunately the taste follows the nose in a negative way it tastes way too sweet like an artificial flavor there is no wheat flavor at all

M:it's so oily and flat it's almost unpleasant the light carbonation does nothing to better this as there is a weird after taste

O:this started off okay but it might have well been labeled shock top it's that bad didnt even want to finish after getting half way through. I hope ithica's other offerings are better

Had this beer the other day on Tap at a local bar and grill. I've never been a huge fan of "fruity" beers but thought I would give it a try. Definitly a distinct apricot taste, slightly on the sweeter side. Enjoyed the citrus aroma but not my favorite beer. On the flip side. my girlfriend loved it.

Serving type: on-tap
