Hazy apricot color (what else?) with a thin white head that lowers quickly and flattens out to nothing. Smell is sweet apricots, almost candy-like. Mouthfeel is a little thin, leading to a flavor that is sweet apricot, maybe too much like apricot and not enough like beer. The wheat flavor is diminished by the apricot. No hops come through, although there is a tingly bite in the finish, but it's not hoppy, sort of tannic. A bit like apricot juice.

Hazy peach body with a thin yellowish head. Nose is bursting with apricots. Wow this thing is an apricot bomb. Thin crisp and light body. Some grainy husk flavors lie below the apricot. Apricot presence huge throughout. Drinks more like an apricot cider than a beer though. Cool and refreshing and beats out magic hat #9 for sure. Some spicy orange rind flavors give some balance on the finish but its a sweet beer. Not cloying though.
