3.25/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Into a pint glass (also had with a nonic, nothing changed):

A: light straw yellow body with a one finger white head that quickly dissipates into nothing. There was barely any lacing left, and barely any carbonation was seen rising.

S: apricots and peaches

T: centered around the peaches and the apricots, not even any hops coming out. Is this a soda or a beer?

M: light, carbonation was definitely felt

O: well, with the apricot/peach thing going on, is this more of a fruit/vegetable beer than an American Pale Wheat Ale? I will echo the previous guy, "this is an interesting beer." I'm not sure if I would have this again. (629 characters)

3.4/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured a dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured dried apricots and peaches.

The taste was likewise "peachy" with a residual sweetness.

The mouthfeel was sweet and champagne like in texture.

Overall intersting beer. One and done for sure though. (324 characters)

4.22/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: minimal head, high carbonation, orange-gold in color, clear

Smell: peaches and white wine

Taste: big time peaches, Sprite--lemony, light grapefruit and other citrus hops

Mouthfeel: sweet with a slightly bitter middle, light body, medium carbonation

Overall: The best Federal Jack's beer I have had by far. Like a nice mix between a summer beer and a dry white wine. A bit on the sweet side, but very interesting. I had several. (443 characters)
