Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About two fingers of white head that settle into a thin patchy layer.
Smell: A fruity and sweet wheat driven aroma with hints of apricot and other fruits. Pale malt and wheat with hints of grains, cracker, and yeast. Big scent of fruit with lots of apricot and hints of orange, mango, and lemon. Hints of coriander spice. Sweet hints of sugar as well. A decent aroma.
Taste: Like the smell, a fruity and sweet wheat driven taste with notes of apricot and light spice. Pale malt and wheat with hints of cracker, grains, straw, and yeast. Big taste of apricot fruit along with some notes of mango, orange, and lemon zest. Light notes of coriander spice. Also some notes of sugar. A pretty decent taste.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Crisp, clean, and fruity. Very smooth.
Overall: A pretty decent fruit beer. The Hefeweizen elements are minimal but the citrus flavor is good.

The good news is I'm reviewing a fruit beer instead of a hefe
A: poured into a weizen glass to a pale yellow with a little haze and a two finger dense white head that has poor retention
S: smells of apricots and a hint of spice
T: taste is apricots, slight banana, clean pale malt with some creamy wheat. swallow is more apricots with a little banana and a slight malt twang on the finish
M: this beer is pretty light with slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: It isn't bad. It isn't belgian red but nothing else really is. Overall it has good flavors but the apricot is a little forced and somewhat artificial tasting.

Well the appearance wasn't all that, but most everything else about the beer I found very enjoyable.
An easy to drink fruit beer that had light notes of heffy-ness, but had plenty of fruit flavor and most of that was apricot (appropriately). Sweet but not overly so, and not bitter or hoppy at all.
Low ABV made these dangerously drinkable. I rather enjoyed this beer and don't care what the ratings thusfar have said, I'm going to indicate that I was quite happy with this sixer and would buy another.
