2.75/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a hazy pale straw/gold color with a fingers worth of soapy white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing.

Sweet apricots are the dominant smell, accompanied by candied sugar, a little grainy wheat, and cotton candy. Smells pretty good.

The taste doesn't really follow through with the promise of the nose. Some fake, sweet tasting fruit up front followed by a lot of grain and not much else. Very one-note, almost zero complexity. Not horrible, but definitely not enjoyable. And where's the wheat?

High carbonation with a weird, unpleasant aftertaste.

Overall, not too impressed. I haven't had this in a quite a while, and decided to add it to a mixed six the other day because I remembered actually liking this brew back in the day. Not so much anymore. Smells pretty great but the flavor profile just isn't there. I'll get down on some Flower Power all day, but I definitely won't be drinking this stuff anymore.
