Bottle. The pour was a clear medium copper with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that had awesome retention, lasting throughout along with some good sheeting of lace.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with a big note of apricot and a hint of citrus (grapefruit and orange peel).
The taste was lightly bitter with a nice apricot sweetness from the start and then progressed into a much bitterer hoppiness with a strong bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted a decent duration following the swallow with a nice fruity hoppy taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was just above light in body with a nice dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall a very refreshingly tasty spring seasonal from this brewer (no surprise there), it offers a perfect balance of bitter hops and a fruity sweetness...

The apricot flavors aren’t too overpowering which is very nice. A balanced finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a tight egg shell head that leaves a wispy film and collar. Aroma has caramel malt that is mineral/iron and not much else. Taste is bitter earthy herbal hops caramel malt and no real apricot flavor, if there is the hops and malt are masking it well. Palate is medium with heavy malt.

Pours a light Amber with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with a hint of alcohol. Citrus hop, apricot, peaches, and the tartness of an under ripe plum. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Very good, I liked the citrus and stone fruit combination.

This beer smelled of bready malt, fruit, and floral hops. A nice smoothe, medium body with satisfying carbonation. It has a very nicely balanced flavor of fruity tartness and hop bitterness.
