On tap at Goat Hill Tavern, Costa Mesa CA, poured into the can't use it as a weapon in a bar fight plastic mug.
Golden amber, one finger white head, quick dissipation. Big blueberry nose, some apricots. Taste isn't cloying sweet, but it's damn close, very little hop presence. Smooth mouthfeel, and fairly drinkable, but this is just too damn sweet for my liking. I'll never drink one of these again. If it wasn't for the $3 pint and free shaker glass, I wouldn't have tried it once. The least favorite fruit beer I've ever had. Pass.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
A - Clear gold. one finger head dissipates quickly with mild retention. Spotty lacing.
S - Tea, malt and faint apricot.
T - Malt and yeast dominate with some bitter hops and tea flavor to finish with. The longer it sits, the more pronounced the light apricot flavor becomes.
O - I tasted more tea than apricots. This would be a good choice where you can build your own six pack.
