First discovered this beer at a NY TAP festival. It was my first fruit beer I would say, and has since lead me to try a few others. As I am not a fan of drinking alcohol while eating food (it's usually one or the other, aside from Buffalo wings and football spectator foods), I found this beer to be very drinkable in that instance. It competes well with juice and soda and is by far is my favorite peach/apricot inspired beer.

On tap at Ward 8
Pale orange color with a long lasting head. Overpowering apricot aroma and flavor. Kind of like a beer cooler, but it kind of worked.

Such a crisp, light beer. Perfect with dinner

A: [2.75] Mildly hazy straw color. The beer pours out with a small tight head. The head recedes quickly. The bottle has a notched month "FEB" - so I assume that is next month. I hate notches. No ABV listed.

S: [3.25] Strong wheat smell up front. Some mild fruity smells - nothing I'd call apricot.

T: [3.50] Very, very fruity. Much more than I expected from the nose. It brings it with the nice fruit flavor.

M: [3.50] The carbonation is right and the body is a little thin but okay.

O: [3.25] I don't know the ABV yet - but I am guessing 5.5%. I think this would be an excellent summer beer out on the dock. Really refreshing and a surprisingly nice fruit flavor. I will definitely get this again in the summer to share.

Nice apricot inspired beer. Slightly dry, not too sweet. Good stuff if you like the flavor.
