3.55/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: very decent 355mL brown bottle, funky label. Me likey!
Appearance: golden in colour with a small white head, average retention.
Aroma: aroma is apricots, peaches and coconut.
Taste: very interesting! The coconut, peaches, mango and apricots certainly follow in the taste.
Aftertaste: the sweetness gets a little bit much, but it is well constructed.
Mouth feel: mouth feel really backs up the flavours. Carbonation is medium without being over-powering, body is also moderate.
Overall: if you are after a really interesting fruit-based beer, this one is good for the price. I wouldn't have it all the time, and I certainly wouldn't have more than one or two in a sitting, but it is a good, interesting beer.
Serving type: bottle

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.
