On tap at Town Hall in August 2009.

Pours a dark orange with a white head. Plenty of peach and apricot come out in the nose, with a bit of wheat malt settling in the background. Taste is quite the same. The flavor is a little bit tart with a light mouthfeel, creating an excellent drinkability.

Poured into Schells Weizen glass.

Pours 2 fingers of beige head. Decent retention with some lacing on the glass. Color is a clear golden bronze.

Aroma: Big apricot aroma with some strawberries mixed in as well. Reminds me a lot of strawberry hookah. Wheat aroma as well, but that is a little obvious. A very sweet smelling beer.

Taste: Just like the smell: apricot and strawberry hookah and wheat. Other than that, not a whole lot. This beer is very straight forward.

Mouthfeel: A little crisp, but fairly smooth. Pretty light bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a really sticky aftertaste.

Overall, I like this beer, but it is nothing impressive. I am working my way through this growler on a nice summer evening and I will probably stop half way through it.

Pours a dark golden color with no lacing. Great aroma of apricot extract and light wheat twang. Taste is sharp a bit of fruity tartness, plenty of apricot flavor. Great balance. Smooth and crisp mouthfeel. Light, tasty and refreshing on this beautiful summer day!
