3/5 rDev -22.5%
Amber to dark gold colored with great clarity. Minimal head that quickly almost entirely dissipates. Overpowering cloying aroma of candy sweet apricots. The taste is a wallop of intensely sweet apricot flavoring. I don't really get anything else out of the taste. The mouth is fairly carbonated.

3.84/5 rDev -0.8%
Can to glass, quick pour nets only a half finger of clumpy white foam atop a hazy amber body. Poor retention and nearly no lacing but it's a fruit beer so that's expected.
Apricot fruit is dominant on the nose but not overly sweet. There's a hefty dose of butter bread in there too with some fruit pungency and a stale tartness to finish.
Juicy apricot with wheat toast, pretty simple profile. Walks the tight rope between sweet and balanced with confidence. Ends with a flash of tartness and some ripened fruit pungency.
Effervescent carbonation, prickly bubbles with a medium body. The lightly tart flash in the finish keeps things lively.
One of the better fruit beers I've come across, since it's delivered in a can it makes for a nice and easy summer go to. Pity that it doesn't make it out to my state, drink up Colorado.
