look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Was in a fruity beer mood. Wanted to cuddle up with a 6-pack but didnt want somethign too strong or heavy.
Appearance is as expected. Clear pale yellow with a billowing pure white head. Carbonation is faintly visible but its def present upon drinking.
Smell is faint fruityness with a whiffs of dull apricot.
Taste just is not impressive. Although i love bitter beers, i was hoping for somethign much sweeter. Can barely taste the apricot, comes thru in the middle.
With its light body and fine carbonation, it is very drinkable.
Maybe im rating it against what i was hoping to drink, but i def will not be seeking this out again.

I'm a major sucker for fruit beer, so I had to try this one. It was my first time at a local bar, and I was waiting for my aunt and uncle to meet me after work, so I ordered this beer with my fries. It was sweet but not too much so- in other words, you could definitely still taste the beer in it. There was a perfect blend of sweetness and yet a tiny bite to it. It was very smooth and amazing when ice cold! If I came across it again I'd definitely go for a second taste.

2.65/5 rDev -18.2%

Appearance - Pale yellow, might be a touch of orange. Hazy, nearly opaque. Very little head.
Smell - Very noticeable bright apricot aroma. Otherwise, vague pale malt.
Taste - Perhaps a little less distinctly than the aroma, but obviously apricot flavor highlights this beer. Otherwise, rather plain tasting pale malt.
Mouthfeel - Very light. Crisp.
Overall - I haven't tried many (if any) apricot beers. If nothing else, this beer demonstrates that the flavors can work together. Probably better, too.
