This pours a clear light golden colour with about an inch of foam and has some good lacing.

It smells fruity, of apricots mentioned on the label. A bit of hoppiness behind the fruit.

The taste is of apricots with some hop bitterness, a flavour of, umm..seltzer water? That could be because of how thin the body is. Not very flavourful, imho, and not a good substitute for Skinny Dip, which I enjoyed quite a bit more and was only 4.2%abv vs 5.2.

Very light bodied with ample carbonation, it has an okay mouth feel.

Drinkability is average because my palate just can't wrap itself around the total package that is Somersault. My summer can do without this beer..

A clear golden beer, a bit grainy, with a fresh hop smell...the charcuterie is restrained. Simple and straightforward, this beer is mildly fruity...citrus and apricot, and has a mild peppery hop flavor as well. Light to medium in body. Average.
