Our smooth wheat beer is light in color and body…perfect for those looking for a lighter taste. The combination of wheat and barley gives Apricot Wheat a different malt character than our other ales. The hint of apricot gives this beer a pleasant nose and fruity finish.

Pours a cloudy orange. Wheat aroma. Slightly tart to start. Mild apricot body. Fades to a light sweetness. Good apricot flavor. A very good summer brew.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Aroma and flavor feature tart wheat and mystery fruit - not really getting any apricot in particular or other stone fruit in general. Overall it's an okay summer beer and perfect after a run, but could have been a lot better.

Purchased as a single bottle from Kroger for $1.69. Poured into a tulip glass as part of a sampler flight I made.

L - Slightly hazy gold with a two-finger pale white head. Laces beautifully.
S - Freshly baked bread, dried apricot, and sourwood honey. Faint hint of mango, as well.
T - Sweet, but not overly so. Apricot is very upfront, and is edged off with a welcome bready and wheaty flavor.
F - Very carbonated. Nice and light, with a crisp finish. Super easy to drink - finished the entire thing without even realizing it. Quite refreshing, as well.
O - The beauty of this beer is in its simplicity. Two flavors that were brewed extremely well, come together so nicely. Very happy with this purchase, and will seek it out more often. I recommend this beer.

Had to get out for a while from this virus home-shut-in.
We got a huge take-out of Hurricane Wings Sweet Chile flavor and a six of Ithica Apricot Wheat.
So good together, like love & marriage.
The apricot has no artificial taste,, perfect carbonation.
Pleasant aroma
Drinkability is high.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

L---Pours a mildly hazy golden color with a hint of orange. Nice, fluffy white head that dissipated to nothing rather quickly. Left no lacing. Shame about the head, that really hurt the appearance.

S---Strong apricot aroma. Pretty sweet. Some wheaty malt in there. Not too complex.

T---Follows the nose. Heavy on the apricots, although they taste more like some processed version of apricot than like the fresh fruit. Mild wheat taste as well.

F---Flat. Like all of the carbonation was in the rapidly disappearing head. Mid to light bodied, appropriate for a wheat beer.

O---It's okay, not good or great. It'd be a good one to have outside on a hot day. I won't get it again, though.

Not a good Looking wit. Immediately Smells of apricot, but there is wheat in there. Tastes are the same. And yes, there is thin-ness for those who it really bothers.

IMHO without having done all the research, Ithaca is the end of the second generation; a great cash cow (Flower Power IPA);

Guilty pleasure beer, summer beer, or beer to drink with my wife. It’s just a tasty well-crafted wheat beer, if you occasionally like a wheat beer. Nice orange hazy hue without a lot of carbonation. Some head but dissipates quickly. Some citrusy and mango notes, maybe cobbler. Flavor is right on with the apricot; not overly sweet or floral. This is not an IPA, but very well done for what it is.
