2.48/5 rDev -26.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2
12oz bottle (best by 02/28/11) poured into a milkshake pilsner glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear golden yellow beer with a persistent 1/8" dense white head. Strands, walls, and islands of lacing as I drank it down were seen. When held up to the light along with the plentiful bubbles you can see what looks like a faint peach color to the beer - making the beer almost a rose gold in color. A nice looking beer.
Smell: Apricot mostly and only as it warms up. When cold the apricot smell is a bit off. It's not quite doing it for me.
Taste: Apricot up front colliding into what tastes like an adjunct lager to my taste buds. A bit sulfur-like in flavor at times (cooked veggie? maybe the taste of the smell of a perm if that makes sense to you, it does to me). The finish is bitter with a lingering fruit (apricot again) flavor. Well, this is a fruit beer, but it's an acquired taste and I'm not sure I've acquired it.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation on the tongue with some lingering sensation on the teeth. Thicker than water but I can't say that the beer goes down smooth exactly. I am almost tempted to say that the carbonation becomes fizzy on the way down.
Drinkability: Definitely not for me. One and done and it becomes a bit of a chore to finish by the end. I'll give the beer high marks for a unique appearance, but then the enjoyment ends.
Serving type: bottle
