Review from last month, thanks Tommyguz for the growler hookup and delivery. The brew appears a clear golden with a white cap.

The smell is pleasantly fruity like apricot puree and mild cereal grain essence lies underneath.

The taste is sweet and grainy like the previously mentioned wheat or cereal graininess than apricot sweetness and a slight herbal bitterness to the finish.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. I ended up liking this more than I thought I would - likely because it still has a beer feel to it with adequate fruit addition.

3.5/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Tried on tap in a small tasting glass served with a flight. This beer is: Straight. Up. Apricot. It pours a clear straw color. The nose is fruity apricot, and the palate is much the same - like drinking apricot puree with a malty, almost lagery backend. This over malty finish detracts from the beer in some respects, and while the medium body suits the overall beer well, thee base beer isn't interesting enough to make this a beer worth returning to. The apricot is extremely prominent, and while it's a great addition, the base beer is underwhelming enough that there's nothing for this unique additive to stand on. A thoroughly "meh" beer.
