Appearance: Quite honestly it pours and looks identical to a BMC. Thin, straw colour with very little head.
Smell: The label boasted that it "Smells like apricots, but tastes like beer". I would actually reverse that claim, as I found it very hard to detect the apricot in the aroma.
Taste: Apricot! They did a pretty good job with it though, its not too sweet, the fruit tastes natural and it doesn't overshadow the fact that its a beer.
Mouthfeel: WAY too carbonated for my liking.
Drinkability: Might have 2 on a summer's day. Not something I would buy on a regular basis though.
Serving type: bottle

A: Golden orange, clear filtered, very little carbonation, a few fingers of off white head.
S: Apricots, peaches, fruit, black tea, little maltiness but mostly stone fruit.
T: Very fruity with hints of tannins like black tea, candied fruit, a hit of Belgian yeast and ends in some dough.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, dry tannins and light syrupy quality.
O: Delicious, refreshing, complex for a ‘wheat’ beer. A good one for a hot day.
Serving type: can
