Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam and tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – A strong peach and apricot aroma is the bulk of the smell. These are combined with a bit of a wheaty and grassy smell producing a nice sweet, fruity aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheat bread and apricot flavor right from the start. These flavors create a base for the brew with the wheat remaining relative constant and the apricot gaining strength as the flavor advances. Along with the slight increase in the apricot, comes some flavors of a peach nature, accentuating the fruity nature of the brew as the taste advances. A very light grassy flavor joins the taste at the end of the flavor profile, leaving one with a medium sweet, but rather crisp, fruity apricot and peach flavor, to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are fantastic for the fruity flavors of the brew and make for a very refreshing and more crisp brew overall.

Overall – A not overly sweet and quite drinkable apricot ale. Rather refreshing and easy drinking.

Sampled tonight on 2/2/14 though I tried it once back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured into a classic pilsner flute glass.

Pours a clear golden yellow in color with tiny bubbles on the side of the glass. Just a small thin white head is seen with some very light spotty lacing as well. The aroma is faint of apricot and wheat, and not as fragrant as say a 'Pyramid Apricot' which is full of aroma & flavor. The taste of apricot is there but not overpowering and same with the wheat taste. Light and refreshing that leaves your tongue and mouth tingling some due to the high carbonation.
