Tastes like Apricot soda in the best of ways. Sweet. Obviously. Would be out-freaking-standing with vanilla icecream topped with a fruit compote.

Floral and smooth up front. More effervescent than I normally prefer, but it works here. The apricot is deep and concentrated, more like dried than fresh.

Great ice cold, apricot bite is right on top of the ale bite and this ale is totally jacked

Appearance: gold, slightly hazy; white head is fine and full with average retention

Aroma: big, bright apricot jam leaping from the glass, with some honey and floral notes

Taste & Mouthfeel: juicy and full of apricot flavour that's surprisingly authentic - definitely sweet, but not sugary as it could have been (good thing); soft and silky body may be an attempt to imitate the fruit's skin, and if so, it's a nice touch' a medium dry finish prevents it from being cloying and lends some crispness; apply juice comes to mind too; no sign of hops which is no hindrance

Overall: funny thing is, originally thought it was a peach ale (didn't read the label closely), but taste and aroma kept me thinking of apricot - goes to show how spot on the profile is; a delight for summer, and for cider lovers
