Appearance: Yellow, very slightly hazy. Small amount of medium-sized bubbles form the head.

Smell: Apricot! No, seriously. Hardcore apricots. I hope it doesn't taste too sweet, but I am digging the smell.

Taste: Tastes like carbonated apricot juice. Tart, which keeps it a bit refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Light body with medium carbonation. Easy to drink.

Overall: If it's what you like, they knocked it out of the park. Not too sweet, with real apricot flavor. Would enjoy this one again.

Pours a small/medium white head that almost immediately recedes. Beer is a bright golden straw color that is moderately hazy. Leaves no lacing. Has a very nice apricot aroma, although there is not much else going on, a bit of breadyness, but not much of a wheat aroma.

Can get more of the wheat in the taste. Taste starts with a very nice apricot flavor, then moves on to bread and wheat. Just a touch of hop bitterness along with a minute amount of malts. Has a light mouthfeel with high carbonation.

Not really a beer that is going to wow many craft beer fans, but is different, the apricot flavor is good, and it is very drinkable

Had this at a bar that holds itself out as a beer-lover's dream. It was clearly run by people who don't know anything about beer.

This pours into a pint glass and looks like a pale ale. It's nice.

This has a strong floral bouquet. It's way too much like walking into a florist. It's, frankly, gross.

Tastes how it smells--like Sen-Sen mints.

The body is a little light, but not terrible. Can't make up for this beer's flaws though.

Overall, I'd not try this again. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
