On tap, poured into a mug.
A- It poured a slightly hazy golden color with plenty of carbonation and a thin head that became a nice lace that left a lot of sticky spots on the glass.
S- I was initially taken aback by how fruity the beer smelled. It was something of really sweet berries or peach/apricot.
T- Again, the flavor was quite fruity. More sweetness as described in the smell.
M- There was a bunch of carbonation to give a tingly, lighter feel.
D- It would be a pretty easy drinker, I described a lot of fruit flavor, but it wasn't so overdone or syrupy that you couldn't enjoy more than one.
Serving type: on-tap

Haters gonna hate. I feel like this beer is underrated on here because it has three characteristics that people on BA tend to dislike: it's a fruit beer, it's mass distributed, and it's made by Magic Hat. While not an amazing beer, it's certainly better than average. The point of rating beers on BA is to consider a beer within its own genre...and as far as fruit beers are concerned, I think this one is damn good. If you don't like fruit beers, it should be no surprise to you that you won't like this one. If you think it's uncool to drink Magic Hat, either because it's mass distributed or because of the West 6th thing...then don't drink it. Anyway, now that I'm down off my soapbox, the flavor of this is rich, and the apricots definitely come through, refreshing pretty much any time of year. The color has an inviting orangish hue which I find very appealing. Mouthfeel isn't awesome, a little heavy on the carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer.
