look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured golden orange, very carbonated, into a pint glass, with less than a finger of white head, and very little lacing. The smell was on the sweet side; apricot and syrup, with a hint of earthiness/leather. The taste was fairly bland, until the finish, where the apricot flavor popped up in a not-that-annoying amount, and lingering a little through the finish. I actually was somewhat positively surprised, as the smell had me expecting a syrupy mess, but it wasn't that way at all. The mouthfeel was very thin, and super-carbonated. Drinkable? Yes, but I can't picture me having more than one of these.

A: crystal clear; thin head that dissipated quickly leaving a ring around the edge of the glass; minimal lacing;
S: a nice, fresh apricot scent;
T: follows the nose with a bit of hop bitterness in the mid-palate before the apricot sweetness comes back for the finish;
M: light bodied; light carbonation; dry finish;
O: refreshing and a good thirst quencher; easy to drink; I generally don't like fruit beers, but on a hot day, this was an enjoyable diversion from my usual hop bombs;
Serving type: on-tap
