16oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours a deep golden yellow color with a one-finer foamy white head that eventually reduces to a ring around the edge

S- smells of apricot puree (a bit of a baby food vibe), coriander & toasted wheat

T- slightly tart up front, followed by a nice kick of the apricot puree. Mid-palate gives some toasted wheat notes, as well as a slight peppery-coriander kick. The finish gives more apricot that is more sweet than tart

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a medium-thick mouthfeel that continues into a foamy finish

O- nice apricot notes throughout, super drinkable

This one pours a fairly thick and opaque-looking orange color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like mostly sweet apricot puree, with a hint of lemon acidity.

Like most of The Veil's beers, this is pretty simplistic. Unlike most of The Veil's beers, however, this is quite tasty. The apricot flavor is impressive, and comes across very strongly. It's simple, and not very sour. I don't really get any salty characteristics that would make it a "gose."

This is light bodied, with a crisp and juicy mouthfeel, and a high level of drinkability.

This is highly enjoyable. There's not much to it, but it's very tasty.

Purchased 4 pack of cans at The Veil on November 14., 2017 (release date).

Pours a cloudy gold with minimal white head. Fruit juice notes predominate; smells like brunch. Lovely juicy notes of apricot and orange mingle up front. Wheat grain peaks through mid-palate, and the finish is a semi-dry saline note. The slight tang lingers for a bit, making the finish longer than expected.

Replace the mimosa on your brunch menu with this lovely lady.
