Poured into a pint glass.
Such an odd beer....
Pours a really nice light amber coller teetering on copper. One finger head that sticks around for a little while. Ok lacing.
Smell is odd. Fruity but what fruit....? Banana? Not much citrus but more so a sweet fruit. Flower aroma comes in but not until your nose is in the glass for a few seconds.
Once again...what an odd taste this is. Im tasting alot of fruit but cant pinpoint which fruit. I think I may be tasting banana or apricot. Sweetness is really nice in this beer. not too much hop bitterness going but its there.
Mouthfeel was ok. A bit watery but the carbonation was nice. very crisp, a little light though.
This is a good beer if your in the mood for something different.

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.
