On-tap at Alcatraz (Orange)

This is the regular "Weiss Guy Wheat" with apricot extract/flavoring added to the keg. The server confirmed there isn't actually any fruit in it.

A: The pour is much the same as the regular Weiss Guy Wheat, a hazy light yellow pour with a thin layer of white head on top.

S: The nose is full of sweet apricot, which is a welcomed change over the sour grain smell of the original version of this beer. The wheat is present as well, but more of a background note.

T: Just like the nose, there is a lot of sweet apricot flavor. Perhaps a bit too sweet for me, but again, the beer is better for it. The fruit does taste real rather than fake apricot flavor candy.

M: The mouthfeel is unfortunately still a bit watery and the carbonation was moderate, but I would have liked it to be a bit higher.

D: This was actually one of the better beers we had at Alcatraz, as awful as it is to say. The sweetness made this beer something that I couldn't drink too much of, but it's actually not completely terrible.
