Picked up a growler of this at the Scripps Ranch, Ballast Point.
a - nice golden color with about 1 finger of white head
s - seriously? this smells like apple juice. but in a good way. maybe apricot juice.
t - initially sweet then immediately sour with a fruity aftertaste
m - it's really light on the tongue, kinda has that sour kick on the tongue
d - this stuff is dangerous, you could drink a lot of this before it even hits you. on my 2nd glass already.
Serving type: growler

On tap at the Linda Vista location.
Pours vibrant and translucent gold with a pillowy white head. The aroma is of ripe apricots, sweet honey, caramel, and alcohol. The apricots are the dominating characteristic in the aroma.
The flavor is a lot of apricot with caramelized honey. The taste is sugary sweet. Tannins impart noticeable bitterness and there's a low level of acidity. The alcohol is apparent, but it's hard to believe it's nearly 11%.
The beer is light bodied with a sticky mouthfeel.
This is like a mixture of cider, mead, and beer. Very interesting but the sweetness limits how much you can drink.
Serving type: on-tap
