Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a beautiful hazy orange-apricot hue with 2 inch frothy white head with excellent retention.
S: Black pepper, apricot, soft dry minerals, mild earthy funk, soft oak, and a hint of white wine.
T: Black pepper (maybe a bit too much), apricot, mild earthy funk, and soft oak. Doesn't quite live up to the aroma's promise. Notes of peach, vanilla, and almond emerge with warming.
M: Medium body. Spicy (again, a bit much) and mildly sweet.
D: I was excited by the look and even the aroma, but unfortunately it tailed off after that. Still a solid brew, but I'd tone down the black pepper a tad. Nice complexity and refreshing.

Sampled yesterday on 3/26/16 at Nebraska Brewing Company in Papillion, Nebraska. Ordered a single -13-ounce brew that came in their snifter glass for $7.50. Didn't see the pour but the brew was a apricot in color with a smaller head. Lacing was seen when sipped that stuck to the sides of the glass. Aroma is of fresh apricots with a hint of spice. Taste pretty much followed the nose. Crisp with a tart and slightly sour finish. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation as well. Overall a good brew.
