Interesting. Verrrrrrrry interesting. If Wasatch has proved anything to me so far, it’s that they definitely have a way of creating some pretty damn interesting brews that really deliver on the flavor and this is a perfect example of that. While I’m not exactly sure what “natural apricot flavoring” is, I am already a fan of it even though I have never even tried an actual apricot. If you are thinking “How can you judge this beer and why have you never tasted an apricot?” back the fuck off because I am a picky eater so get the fuck over it. Plus they are fuzzy. What the fuck is up with that? A strong apricot sweetness starts things off with an almost jolly rancher like candy flavor before a slight wheat flavor mixes in bringing some more sweetness and a great refreshing quality before ending with a even more apricot flavor to close. This would probably be the easiest way to persuade your friends away from their Miller and Bud because of it’s fruity additions and it’s a great introduction beer to get you into the wild wide world of craft. As far as you pros out there, make sure you are a fan of fruity beers to start because I know it might be “too lame” or “too sweet” for some of you cooler kids out there but I’d definitely recommend picking this up as a delicious sipper.
