Had this on tap at Falling Rock.

Pours a somewhat cloudy blonde color with 1/2" white head that rapidly dissipates. A perfumy apricot aroma exists. Like apricots and grammas Sunday perfume.

Taste is pretty much all apricot (my favorite fruit to be in a beer btw). Malt is thin, mouth feel is thin, almost no bitterness to it. So I dunno, we kind of have a mixed bag here. Ultimately, the fruit seems to be on point. Its like beyond that, they just said screw it on the rest of the beer. Typical un-adventurous blonde ale, but amped up with apricot. Can't always get what you want I guess.

On tap in Aurora, Colorado on August 6, 2017.

Slightly cloudy amber orange pour with a modest head and good lacing.

Most definitely do I pick up the apricot fruit in this beer. Also in the nose I get sweet breadiness.

Light to medium body.

The apricot juiciness plays up big in the flavor leading to soft, mellow finish. Basically clean and refreshing.

12 oz. Can

Pours a pretty nice orangy color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some apricot. The taste is malty, with some apricot.Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Look: Pours a hazy light gold color. Less than 2 finger head. Recedes quickly. Looks like a Saison. Very low on carbonation - reduces to a slight foam ring.
Smell: Very faint fruit. Slight malty sweetness.
Taste: Slight bite followed by loads of fruity apricot. Seems syrupy and a bit chemical derived at first, but that fades. Starts sweet and dries out, then you get some of the base beer flavor. Some biscuit, some wheat maybe.
Feel: Pretty thin. Pretty flat really.
Overall: It's a decent summer/hot sun beer. Not something I could buy a 6 pack of or drink daily. Almost like a beer mixed with a wine cooler.
