look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear, golden yellow. Nose has lots of apricot with some citrus and some grain malt. Taste follows suit. Sweet citrus and apricot upfront fade to some grain/wheat malts. Apricot comes in again, this time much more prominently. Ends with a spicy banana flavor. Overall, this is a solid take on a fruit hefe. Usually I have been very let down by fruits being put into this style, but I should have known that TH would nail this one.

Looking at it: Clouded, golden, slim, white head.

Smelling it: Apricots all over. Stone fruit paradise. Sweet and malty, with plenty of wheat-y esters, the heft wizen aromatics coming up from under and avalanche of fruit.

Taste: Little to no bitterness, just enough hops to keep balance. Sweetness is held at bay. Loads of fruit in the flavor, but not too much. A little hop bitterness starts to pop up, adding additional pleasure. Lush fruit flavor adds more, and consumability is maximized for even more, extra additional delight. Ends sweet and lightly bitter, smooth as can be.

Pours a white head. Good retention with very nice lacing. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: apricots dominate the nose. Very sweet. Bananas, cloves, spices, and bubblegum show.

Taste: mimics the nose but more bubblegum and sweetness.

Mouthfeel: smooth and creamy. Light bodied with a mediums mount of carbonation. Ends clean, but kind of bland.

Overall, a decent hefe. Nothing out of the ordinary but the apricots add a nice flavor.
