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.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy orange Amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is apricots and wheat. The taste follows the nose.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. freshness dating is not clear, my best guess for date is august 2017, but don't know if that's best by or bottled on.

looks pretty grim in the glass. murky, watery yellow tinged with orange body. head disappears quickly, even after some agitation. no lacing.

however, there is a nice aroma of apricots.

taste is very watery apricot juice. not much else happening here.

mouth is closer to thin than medium. finish is apricot lite.

overall, it's like watery apricot juice. glad i only picked up the single.

An incredibly pleasant fruit beer. Lovely wheat taste to end it. Will be getting again.

Looks pale golden, only slight haze
Smells great - apricot clearly present on the nose
Taste is good - gets the right balance of apricot enough to be present without overdoing it. Still can taste a decent wheat beer underneath it with some biscuit malt and hints of banana. Not overly sweet.
Feels crisp and light
Overall not normally crazy with flavored wheat beers but this worked well.

L - light transparent orange gold with little to no head and no lacing

S - light sweet fruit smell (apricot)

T - extremely light with a little sweetness from the apricots and the crisp wheat finish

F - Extremely light bodied and heavily carbonated so it still fills you up

O - Great beer for what it is...had ppl over on a hot september night out side for a fire and these were a crowd favorite, not a beer you're going to stand in line for or trade for but its a nice, crisp, light and easy drinking beer that everyone will enjoy.
