look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Nice golden color with good clarity. Plenty of visible bubbles. Thick, white head with exceptional lacing.

Fresh, juicy apricot aroma with floral, grassy hints.

Juicy, nectar - like apricot flavor. Just a tad sweeter than I would prefer but not unpleasant. Hint of grassy hops, not quite enough to balance. Overwhelming apricot flavor but it's a good flavor.

Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Finish is slick and nectary.

Basically what I expected but good nonetheless. This would be a good model for other fruit beers to follow.

Serving type: bottle

3.6/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Looks like a pilsner when poured, clear gold with a good sized head which is actually finer than what you'd get from a pils. Lots and lots of curtainy lace as you go. Handsome.

Somewhat perfumy apricot aroma laid over yeasty beer. Sweet to taste, apricot quite pronounced. Proper beer lurking in the background. Sweetness brings the mouthfeel to the edge of being syrupy, but it doesn't quite cross that line.

Decent enough as a summertime patio quaff. Not something you'd want to drink serially, but works as a one off.
