look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with two fingers of white foam on top of a perfectly clear, golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lacing on the glass.

S - Tart notes of apricot, wheat, and bread with some peppery notes.

T - Smooth, bready malt up front with some fruity tartness. Apricot and coriander in the middle and a finish of stone fruit, wheat, and light herbal hops.

M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad for what it is, though it is an odd one. The tartness is refreshing but the apricot flavor isn't to my liking.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: 1.5 finger head with nice lacing on a clear bright deep golden body.

S: i almost get a smokey note out of this one with slight lemon sweetness and mostly a plae malt/barley base.

T: lots of honey and herbal notes, tart citrus hops, musty grains and malts.

M: light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: this is certainly drinkable and different in good ways. Wouldnt say I love it but can appreciate is appeal.
