On tap at the brewhouse. Pours a hazy/cloudy yellow with a creamy white ehad.
Nice aroma, apricot and sweet wheat, a bit of peach and a touch of funk.
Pretty tasty. Nice fruitiness with the apricot shining through nicely. A little bit of yeasty funk, bready wheat and a touch of lemon.
Mouthfeel seems a touch thin for a wheat beer but still nice and refreshing.

This is the beer that opened my eyes and maybe made a tear fall from them.

The apricot and wheat pair nicely giving the impression of a light apricot pound cake with the sweetness squeezed out. Not a lot of sweetness, dry, satisfying with light body and medium carbonation. This is light but very drinkable.
