A: lightly-hazy, sunshine yellow liquid.... fizzy head forms on the pour, bottoms out almost immediately... no lace
S: quite bold apricot - obviously extract... kinda smells like a car freshener or, better, a Jolly Rancher... bit of a wheaty undercurrent, perhaps some fruity esters woven in there as well
T: juicy-fruity, of course, though not terribly sweet - in fact, fairly dry - the fruit flavor is similar to mandarin oranges... buttery biscuit or pancake aftertaste... marginally bitter - the bitterness seems to take the guise of tannic fruit pulp
M: smooth, light-medium bodied up front... finishes quite light, soft, and dry
O: I'm not sure you'd want to drink this unless you don't like the taste of beer in the first place... I could see using this in cooking or accompanying a wide variety of summertime foods, namely barbequed chicken or shrimp, not to mention salads with vinaigrette, mandarin oranges and toasted, candied almonds
