Ithaca Apricot Wheat (NY)

This is the second bottle from my Ithaca Summer Variety Pack. The website description uses the words "light," "easy drinking" and "fun," so it's pretty clear what they're aiming for. It pours clear and straw-colored with little foam. As promised, it smells and tastes like apricot. I don't find it to be soda pop sweet, which is the problem I've had with other fruit beers. Instead, it just doesn't have enough going on. I'd like to have tasted something more than apricot; after the sweetness passes, there isn't much there. I don't think this is a bad beer -- it is easy-drinking -- but I prefer Partly Sunny.
