Mild apricots that is almost artificial but not quite. Some wheat as well. A very basic beer but at the same time nothing bad about it.

This was my first experience with this beer. I have had Samuel Smith Organic Apricot beer, and liked it so I thought I would try this one. The beer is good, but it is very sour to the palette.

I am now committed to reducing, if not eradicating, my backlog of bottles. This one was part of a local, in-person trade with tone77.

From the bottle: "On Draught[;]In Bottles".

I began with a heavy-handed pour, bringing forth a pseudo-cascade, followed by its settling into three fingers of puffy, rocky, bone-white head with good retention. Loads of CO2 bubbles were in evidence. Color was a golden-yellow (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity and since Mammon, Midas and Croesus were already here, they began to rejoice in earnest. Nose smelled like apricot preserves, leaving no doubt as to the origin of this beer. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was simply, apricots! Their flavor was prevalent and overcame everything else that may have been involved. Believe it or not, I am actually a fan of fruit beers. They can be light and refreshing, tart and puckering, sweet and cloying or simply an enhancement to some beers. I was really enjoying this beer on a hot, humid Summer afternoon for its light, refreshing qualities. Finish was semi-dry. It definitely was not sweet by any means.
