Our smooth wheat beer is light in color and body…perfect for those looking for a lighter taste. The combination of wheat and barley gives Apricot Wheat a different malt character than our other ales. The hint of apricot gives this beer a pleasant nose and fruity finish.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Blue Solo Cup at Heaney Family RibFest 2012:

A-Nice, cloudy with a decent head

S-Very Fruity (as one might expect) peach, apricot, almost no wheat or hops

T-very light, plenty of fruit, overly sweet

M-thickish, not enough wheat

O-while I was hoping for Apri-hop. I got something less, its not bad, but not worth the price point and definitely doesn't stack up top either Flower Power or Cascazilla

How's that for a review Double Simcoe?

Served in a wellington beer glass.

Appearance: A very slight hazy gold, a white head coming off maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Very strong in the apricot/peach category.

Taste: Well this beer comes off strong in fruit(apricot-peach), slightly sweet.

Mouth: medium carbonation, and sticking taste...super smooth.

Overall: Not a bad beer at all, definitely preferred in the warmer months of the year. Has a fresh fruit feel and honestly you can't go wrong. Salud!

Clear light gold with a big white head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

Very apricotty. A cross between fresh apricots and the aroma of dried apricots rehydrated in hot water.

Apricots, and then a bit of bready malt background.

Light-bodied, mediumish carb.

It's an apricot beer. I like it better than #9 or ApriHop, fwiw.
