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.

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.
