3.39/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pale, golden color - 1/2" white head falls to a cap quickly. Big bubbles clinging to the side of the glass and a fine bead continues fromt he bottom of the glass. Some wispy lace.

Unmistakable apricot aroma...fruit and not too perfumey. Some wheat character but faint.

Apricot fruit and sweetness mid palate...not much before and it doesn't linger too long after. Very one-dimensial but a plus for me that it doesn't remain sweet but finishes very dry.

Thin and crisp, medium carbonation....summer time thirst quencher.

Decent overall...I appreciate the dryness of it. Falls in the upper third of fruit beers for me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

473 ml can from LCBo poured into a pint glass.

Appearance- Nice copper / gold looking beer poured into glass. 2 fingers of light fluffy head rest on top dissipating almost entirely in the next two minutes. Slight soapy cream left on top. Nice lacing on the glass and beer is clearly effervescent.

Smell - Big apricot nose that is quite sweet. Not a whole lot else there maybe some caramel aromas thrown in for good measure but by and large it is only apricot. Slight vegetativeness after the first couple of sips becomes detectable.Also a vague honey scent is perceptible.

Taste- Fairly sweet apricot, but not over-sweet, clearly enough bitterness in here to determine that this truly is beer. Sweetness only last the initial bit in the mouth, after that it subsides and you are left with a beer flavor full of malts and a bit of a fresh grassy taste.

Mouthfeel - Rich but a bit syrupy especially on the first couple of gulps. After that, the beer goes down very refreshing and the carbonation adds to the fullness.

Overall - One of my favorites from this brewery and does not suffer from the thinness that i detected in the raspberry. Probably doesn't help that i am enjoying this on a wet, dank October day, this is a beer meant to be enjoyed on a rooftop patio during our short Canadian summer.
