Poured from a bottle into a lager glass.

A- Golden colored with a one finger head with a slightly below average head retention and lacing.

S-Had a Wheaty aroma with obvious hints of apricot and other fruit smells.

T- Decent taste, nothing special. Sweet and fruity overtones.

M- Smooth and average carbonation.

O-Overall this is a decent ale of its kind. Not my style though so I will probably pass on another one.

Haven't had this beer for 15 years.... seems to still hold up among the latest and greatest..

- Nice cloudy glowing straw yellow and orange brew.. looks much like a Hefe.. light mild white head.. leaves a nice little ring with some scattered foam holding together on top.

- Fruity citrus and apricot aromas.. truly a nice amount of fruit.. perhaps some pear as well. Light lemon, grain, and wheat malt.. not much at all in any hop department. Smells refreshing.

- Nice light fruity brew while still being very solid, and wheaty. Nice grain, and a pleasant apricot and pear flavor. The zest is very good.

- Nice light bodied slightly creamy wheaty feel. Well carbonated, and just a touch cloying and chewy.

- Nice to get back to this beer after so long, and after so many other new various craft beers. This still holds up as one of the better craft beers of all time in my opinion. Perfect spring and summer brew, and one which I think could still be used to get a lot of people into craft beer.

Best by 2/18/12.

Pours a murky orange with a 1 inch foamy off white head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Small dots of lace slide into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, subdued apricot, and some buttery aromas. Taste is the same with the butter coming through on the finish. This beer has a light level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer. It's decent for what it is but I wouldn't get this one again most likely.
