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.
