Orange/gold in color and a little bit cloudy, this beer produces little foam- even with a good pour- and it has a nose of fruit, mainly apricot with some citrus and other notes.
The taste is about what you would expect. Flavors of apricot and a touch of vegetable are noticeable, with some citrus and pale malts. There is a certain earthiness to the flavor with some herbal character as well. And the hops?- Yes, they are there, in the form of the herbal flavor described, but are overshadowed by the other flavors present.
This is a different type of beer and nothing like I expected. Not looking up any reviews or other information before tasting, I assumed it was going to be an amber or pale ale. But it is nothing like that- it is actually a fruit accented beer and not a bad one at that. It doesn’t rank among my favorites, but it does have enough going for it to recommend a sample or two.
