This is another sampling from my acquired haul from Viti, thanks again to Darcie & Kevin for picking this up. This is a very fruit flavoured (and scented) wheat beer.
It pours to a lovely cloudy orange colour. The scent of apricot is very heavy. It also seems very heavily carbonated. The taste is quite sweet, with a distinct apricot flavour. I guessed that they must use dried apricots to get such a concentration of flavour. There is no real bitter note to this beer, but the prolific bubbles crisply finish the taste. As I drink down on this it leaves very minimal lacing on the glass. Another note is that the sweetness is bordering on cloying by the end of the glass. It’s a refreshingly different beer, but I doubt I’d go back for a 2nd right away as it is very overpowering. It’s served from a 12oz (355ml) bottle at 5.1% ABV.
