Good summer beer for alpine, drank out of a growler my brother brought down today. Not much excitement here for this light weight. Still managed to get through this growler but I don't think I would get it again. The smells of apricot were there but this is all I could give props for.

Perfectly balanced sweetness, fruitiness, and flowery aromatics. Very drinkable.
