On tap. Pours a hazy golden color with a one finger head that lingers. Sweet nose. Taste is apricot upfront with a smooth finish. Medium body and medium carbonation.
Easy drinker and good summer beer.

It pours clear amber color with long lasting big off white head. Nice lacing. Smells apricot, grainy sweet. Taste is overly sweet and juice like. Finishes semi dry which is good. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Combination of fruit and wheat is little sweety but highly drinkable.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Firkin on April 19, 2018. This bold, bright and full-bodied American wheat ale features a tropical-tinged bite from Azacca hops and luscious sweetness from apricots.

My 100th Founders beer! The apricot aroma is present but subtle; the apricot really pops in the taste. Perhaps it will be too sweet for some palates, but I find it to be delicious, and not at all cloying.

On tap at a local burger joint, served in a shaker pint. Lovely unfiltered wheat color. Thin white head ring.

Sweet nose like a purée. Taste follows,super sweet aged apricot and malt. Wheaty undertaste like German beers.

Smooth, slick mouth.

A little heavy on the sweet, but not bad at all. Founders is always good for a unique experience.
