After a pour into a pint glass this beer had a 1 finger thick head that was white in color.
As I poured it, I immediately was hit by the aroma. Certainly fruity and nice. Not sure I would have immediately picked up that it was apricot if I didn't know, but I did so I recognized the specific fruity tones.
Nice clear, light Amber in color. Very clear.
A decent amount of lacing that lingered as I enjoyed the beer.
I thought the taste was very well balanced from the slight malt flavor up front to the slightly sweet then hoppy finish. The fruit does not overpower and I do not find that it's too sweet.
Light mouthfeel but not too watery and very drinkable.
This would make a nice session beer.
A decent beer.

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.
