I added this beer because I believe it is brewed different this year, with natural fruit like their other infused beers. Also the abv is significantly lower.

Beige head. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: apricot flavoring, with wheat and spices. Very fruity. Almost unnatural.

Taste: lots or apricot fruitiness. Lots of cloves and spices . Wheat.

Mouthfeel: spiced and dry. Light bodied with a good amount carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, okay but not really my thing. Too much apricot fruitiness. Very sweet. A pint is probably too much.

Pours out a beautiful, perfectly hazy orange/red/yellow body and a large, foamy head. The head dies slowly and leaves loads of lacing around the glass in big globs.

The nose is very sweet. Apricot seems to be all that really shines. There is a little bit of citrus hops that comes through. The flavor is very wheaty with some apricot sweetness upfront. There is a spiciness throughout the sip and a slight hoppy flavor in the finish. Fruity and sweet is the strongest part of the flavor profile and finds a balance with a well-carbonated and medium bodied mouthfeel. The low alcohol content and balanced (slight lean toward sweet) flavors make this a dangerously drinkable beer. This could also serve as a great starting point for a beer newbie.
