A - Apricot hue, hazy, with a wispy head and spotty lace.

S - The nose is very fruity (apricots mostly), and is almost potpourri like, but is fairly nice.

T - The taste is quite fruity and yet it is also rather dry, offering a simple pale grain and mineral water base with lots of apricot lingering on the finish.

M - The feel is watery and lightly carbonated which happens to serve this beer quite well.

O - A (better-than) decent fruit beer, and very refreshing.

Half finger head without any lacing to speak of on a golden crimson hazy body.

S: lots of apricot and peach aromas. These dominate anything else that might be there.

T: wheat and grain with lots of apricot throughout. Simple overall and I suspect that is purposeful.

M: light to medium body, moderate to high carbonation.

Overall this is good at wants to be... A fruity somewhat light beer for all the enjoy.

Had this on-tap, served on a Pint glass.

A: the place where I had this beer had very little lightning so it was a bit hard to tell, but I saw a deep dark golden color, only a superficial head. Little to no lacing.

S: very mute. Hints of apricot, sweet fruits and honey.

T: bland...some apricot and wheat flavor that ends with a citrus note, mostly orange.

M: light to medium body, light carbonation, watery.

O: not very happy with this choice. I certainly won't be going back to this beer.

On tap served in a pint glass.

A - Clear golden with one finger white head and minimal lacing, min head retention

S - Um, you guessed it. APRICOT! A little too much of it.

T - Yep, same thing here too, not trying to be cute, just too much fruit. Pretty sweet, but smooth and refreshing.

M - Light body, moderate carbonation.

O - Not my thing, almost like a bitter fruit drink more than a beer.

Tap to glass @ Lost Coast tap [email protected] Eureka,CA
Look: Dark/yellow orange, medium head goes away quickly, hazy cloudy
Aroma: more aromatic that other wheat beers from this brewery, grains
Taste: low bitterness, not a lot of taste
Feel: fizzy, abrupt, no follow through
Overall: fair beer free ok, not to repeat, but not to look for
