      Yellow opaque. Head fades quickly. Apricot aroma detectable from several feet away. Up close, it's almost perfumey. Good body, a little fizzy. Apricot flavor up front...some wheat sweetness in finish.

      Yellow hazy. Big white head. Apricot aroma, but not overpowering like a lot of fruit beers. Sweet, apricot flavor. Finishes quickly...and clean! Based on their Pyramid Hefeweizen.

      Cloudy yellow. No head. APRICOT aroma. Nothing else...would have enjoyed some beer character. Tastes like pricot sauce. Finishes pretty clean, though. I don't like fruit beers.
