I had this on tap and served in a goblet at Eureka Burger in Redlands, CA only a week or so after it was released. It was hot, as it usually is in So Cal in August. Although, they did serve thus beer under 30 degrees, so I had to try to quickly warm it up to taste it.
A - I was not terribly pleased about the appearance of this beer. It was not just cloudy, but solid like orange juice. I had to vigorously swirl it around to get some sort of head on it and when I did get it, it dissipated quickly.
S - A little bit of breadiness with a whole lot of fresh sugary citrus.
T - The taste was great on this evening. It was refreshing and citrusy, yet I still had a slight hint of alcohol burn to let me know this was a fermented beverage. I was totally impressed that this was not just Orange Wheat, sub oranges with apricots. It's something totally on it's own.
M - Silky and smooth with just a hint of carbonation. It wouldve been nice for the carbonation to be bumped up just a tad. Consistent champagne bubbles wouldve made this a 5.
D - 7.20% and tastes damn near OJ. The booze is well hidden with just a tad peaking through. This is the first H24 beer I've been very VERY satisfied with. A+ guys.

Just tapped our second Polycot keg in 6 months. This one was a little bit cloudier because we let it sit in the cooler for a couple of months, thats my guess, but it actually accentuated the citrus taste in this fine Wheat beer. You definitely get that sort of apricot after taste as well as a hint of tartness from the wheat. A great beer for a hot day!
