look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: crystal clear; thin head that dissipated quickly leaving a ring around the edge of the glass; minimal lacing;

S: a nice, fresh apricot scent;

T: follows the nose with a bit of hop bitterness in the mid-palate before the apricot sweetness comes back for the finish;

M: light bodied; light carbonation; dry finish;

O: refreshing and a good thirst quencher; easy to drink; I generally don't like fruit beers, but on a hot day, this was an enjoyable diversion from my usual hop bombs;

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

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

Appearance: Slightly cloudy straw color with a very thin head that dissipates immediately (even with a fairly aggressive pour).

Smell: Flaked wheat and apricot. Neither is particularly strong - smells like it's going to be pretty lacking in the flavor department.

Taste: Aaaand, it's fairly lacking in the flavor department. Tastes like a standard flavorless American Wheat with a little bit of apricot extract. Needs a lot more apricot. Or a lot more of something else.

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Ithica is capable of much better. I get that fruit wheat beers aren't generally targeted at the beer geek audience, but there just isn't any flavor in this.
