Brewed by:
Ithaca Beer Company
New York, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Cloudy, golden orange in color with a decent head. The beer has a pleasant citrus-y, apricot aroma with grainy notes. Tastes exactly as you would expect. To comment on other reviews, I concur by saying it is a bit light and one-dimensional, but overall not bad at all when compared to some other flavored wheat beers. tastes good & is refreshing, even though its nothing to write home about.

A - Served with a clear copper body and a small, one finger, white head...it does not show very good retention...some thin lacing left

S - Sweet and juicy apricots jump out first...there is also a strong wheat malt aroma

T - The wheat and pale malts hit the palate first...they are pretty strong, especially the wheat flavor...the fruit shows up in the middle with a big kick...although it fades quickly and goes back to the wheat flavor

M - Light bodied...it's crisp but there is a funky, lingering aftertaste that I can't put my finger on

O - The aroma was about the only good thing going for this beer...yes, it's a summer fruit beer but I wanted more fruit...the wheat and malts took over the flavor profile and left an aftertaste that was unpleasant
