Started this thing off with a semi-aggresive pour down the middle. created a 2 finger off-white head with blazing fast retention and minimul lacing. Poured a golden body and clear as daylight. Plenty of tangy, zesty fruits on the nose. Orange peel, apricot and spices mostly. Taste followed closely behind but with a lemon zest kick. Sweet throughout the whole drink and it doesn't tune it down with some bitterness that I detect. Medium-High(ish) carbonation makes it similar to drinking a wine cooler. not the best mouthfeel, but not the worse.
Overall not a bad brew. It definately fits perfectly with the seasonal category as its offered. Ill probably drink this again with some grilled chicken at the lake.
