Ug, screw this screw cap.

A super aggressive pour at least yields a fluffy 1 finger head that fades at a decent pace, fairly quickly, light lacing, over mostly hazy carrot orange yellow colored beer.

Nose is super fruity, lots of apricot, both fresh fruit and fake apricot syrup, bright fruits, light wheat and citrus like, some sweetness, syrupy, overly syrupy fake sweet and fruit aromas, but not too bad.

Taste starts with more fruity flavors, tons of sweet syrupy apricot syrup, stone fruits and bright apricot fruit galore. It is a bit sticky, light sweetness and syrupy feel tasting, trying not to be stereotypical, but more of a woman beer, light overall feel and more fruity than anything, although not undrinkable. hint of bitterness, and a bit of wheat and grassy tastes. Finish is drier but a bit sweet, tons of lingering apricot fake fruit syrup tastes.

Mouth is med to a bit lighter bodied, lighter carb.

Overall not very good, but not as bad as I expected... lots of fruit but it's all fairly syrupy fake tasting, light carb doesn't help, and sticky sweet kinda icky feel brings the bad beer back to where I expected it to be.
