Poured from a bottle into a weisse vase, the beer is a pale, hazy, yellow-gold coloring with a ton of carbonation and a sparse, filmy coating of white head. Aromas of apricot and orange rind, with a bready and slightly buttery undertone. Very sugary sweet smell overall. Flavors of bread, first and foremost, with a blended marmalade highlight of sweet citrus and apricot. Unbalanced, and a touch cloying. The body is thin and filmy from the carbonation, and there is a sharp, frothy finish. Syrupy sweet aftertaste. This beer is a little much on the sweet for me, but I could see it being appealing to the cider population venturing into the beer world.
