First had this in Springfield, MA back in Sept 2011...referring to my notes, I wrote "Sweet!" - I remember having a few sitting around fam's table thinking...this is a chick's beer for sure...but I'll keep drinking it until someone makes fun of me :) nice fruity consistent taste...good amber color...nice litte haze when poured along with a decent head on the beer when poured correctly.

Overall I think this is a great wheat beer. The look had a yellowy straw color with slight haze. When you smell it I only smell apricot but subtly. There is no smell or taste of artificialness. When sipping I get a crisp tropical taste initially then I taste wheat with no residual fruit lingering. This is a perfect beer for a day outside. I'm not sure why the ratings are so low. I put a keg of this on at my bar and sold it in three days. I will definitely have it again next year.

Poured 12oz bottle into glass. 4.9% abv

Appearance- Pours a bright gold with a two finger white head. Very Hazy.

Smell- Apricot overules. Wheaty grain

Taste- A wheat base for the malt with a high amount of grainy flavor builds to strong yet not overpowering apricot fresh fruit flavors. The apricot Is carried through to a smooth clean finish with a touch of hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Thin to medium in body with active carbonation.

Overall- A great ftruit beer with an appropriate name....lots of wheat and lots of apricot. Great balance makes for a fine and flavorful beer.

10/11....hazy golden copper, light white foam. Apple cider looking. Strong fruity nose, apricot for sure. A touch woodsy. Sweet apple apricot flavor, blended into a wheaty background. Rind like bitter back. Nice fruit beer.

It pours with a lot of carbonation and a head made up of huge bubbles that dissipated very rapidly. The aroma is of apricot and some tart/sweet notes from the wheat. The flavor is very bland and overtaken by the apricot on the nose. Light body and highly carbonated.
