Beautifully clear with a vibrant yellow color. A fluffy white head sits on top for a while, dissapating slowly and leaving a nice patchwork of lacing. Tons of visible carbonation up from the bottom feeding that pretty head. The aroma has a nice full breadiness to it, touches of grain intermingled with a lemony crispness. There is an orangey or apricot aroma as well, making for a well-balanced aroma. Very pleasant.
Medium bodied, displaying a nice range of flavors from malts, fruits and a light touch of hops. The malt is very lightly toasted, not getting in the way of the apricot and lemon freshness. There's a slight tartness from these fruits, just enough to be pleasantly summery without making you pucker. The hops in the back are citrusy and a touch floral, giving a quick bitterness that is packed full of citrusy flavor and adding to a dryness to a juicy finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, almost slick and goes down incredibly easily. This would be a fantastic beer to sit down and enjoy a few of on a hot summer afternoon. Chock full of more flavor than your average summer beer, this one is definitely worth a buy.
