4.03/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Poured with a very cloudy, dull golden body...the head was white and fluffy and disappeared very quickly...there was a thin, broken cap left...not much lacing

S - Very fresh, juicy, and fruity...I didn't find overpowering, but rather very enjoyable...apricots and a hint of some peaches were the main characters

T - Again, the fruit is the star of the show...the apricots were very fresh and juicy...they never became cloying because of the wheat malt in the background...the wheat malt just rounded out the flavor and it never took over the fruit presence...the finish is full of fresh apricots

M - Medium bodied...with a hint of thickness to it...smooth with adequate carbonation

O - I'm not going to lie, but this is pretty much a one trick pony...a tasty one trick pony non-the-less...one bottle would be enough to satisfy me especially when looking to cool down or have an alternate to hops

Pint bottle into an Imperial pint glass

A - Crystal clear gold with a short, white head that laces the glass.

S - An odd, interesting fruity smell with a slight spiciness on warming up a bit.

T - Very apricotty and a hint of malt.

M - Big in the mouth without overwhelming or cloying.

O - Didn't care much for it the first time. Must've been an odd bottle. This one was very enjoyable. Would love to taste a bit more malt, though- it's more fruit forward than I'd like. Yet again, the old brewery at Tadcaster refuses to disappoint.
