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.

Not sure why this beer is retired just picked up a mixed four pack and this was one of them poured into a pint glass. Looks great a kind of hazy orange color with a ton of carbonation bubbles resulting in an inch plus of foam. Smell is much more subtle than I expected with some mild apricots and some sugary sweetness this could be an old can. Taste is fairly smooth mild fruit notes again with some bitterness and sweet grains. Body is quite smooth light to medium and easy to crush.

Overall a pretty tasty summer brew that still impresses drinking in the fall.
Really hope to have it again since it may have more pronounced fruit flavors.

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.
