Taste Notes

Thin body and no head. Hazy like crazy. Fruity, almost slightly sour aroma. Definite apricot flavor up front, tastes artificial. Goes into a wheaty yet fruity flavor. Hop presence and spiciness comes on the back end along with some wheatiness. Lingering apricot fruitiness and spice. Flavors blend a little more as the beer warms up. **Need less artificial apricot flavor and make more subtle (less extract). More body and maybe get rid of the wheatiness. Hops seem just right though.

Notes

Mashed with 4.25 gallons at 152 for 60 minutes. Sparged with 4.5 gallons. Didn't get the boil off I normally get so ended up with 5.5 gallons @ 1.056. 6/2 - put in keg with full 4 oz. bottle of apricot extract. FG = 1.010-1.012 (lots of foam in sample glass so was hard to get an acurate reading).
