Just an average beer. I'm not knocking it, but the newer Hangar Recipes are just so darn good. This falls short of being a good beer.

Cloudy light gold straw color.
Musty estery zesty aroma.
Light wheat beer taste and a crisp finish.

I guess I don’t have much more to add to this review right now.

Consumed at the brewery.

A properly cloudy light lemon yellow with a fine white head that provides barely-there lace.

Fruity, wheaty aroma. Tangy.

Flavor is sweet apricot, soft powdery yeast and restrained wheat tang. Nice and balanced. Low/no bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

A nice wheat wine with no apparent flaws.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a very thin head. Smells very sweet like apricot. It's also faintly citrusy. Quite an enjoyable aroma. The flavor is actual rather thin, given the bold nose. It tastes upfront like a standard wheat ale. That is quickly followed by an apricot presence. It's good but simple.
