75cl bottle, splt with Tomaz, courtesy of Pierre. Bottled 04/12/2012, batch#2. Wow, Coors ... seriously? Couleur orangée-dorée présentant un léger voile brumeux, le col est blanc qui disparait assez vite. Arôme restitue parfaitement les abricots avec un bouquet laissant pointer des notes boisées, fine aigreur de brett et ce côté fruité fermenté. Le grain est juste présent en rétro-nasal ajoutant ce côté rustique que l’on retrouve dans certaines gueuzes. Palais est très léger, subtile mélangeant allègrement les notes fruitées des abricots avec une pointe épicée de boisé-chêne. La fin de bouche est aigre finement acidulé venant du brett mais également des abricots qui ont donnent ce côté aigret. Note citrique aigre-douce qui jongle en bouche pour un pétillant assez perspicace. Le tout couvre le gorge et descend jusque dans l’estomac. Bière dont l’aigreur n’est pas pour tut le monde, et pourra en rebuter certains.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2013
750 ml bottle - shared by ForgetFu at the DL vertical tasting at the cellar of Chez Moeder Lambic. Thank you Bill!. Pours yellow to orange with a steady small and fine head. Incredibly refined aroma of apricots, peach and some mango. Some yoghurt flavours as well. Fresh body with nice sour & fruity balance. Definite like.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pale golden orange with a nice haze. Plenty of apricot aroma. Strong lactobacillus notes, some grass, oak, and lemon zest. Maybe a little bit of tea. The flavor has a really strong apricot flavor. Nice tartness of lemon, a touch of yogurt, and some grass. Drying oak, tea, and a touch of funk.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2013
Aroma of tart apricot, slight cellar funk, lemon, and slight acetone. Pours hazy bright yellow orange with no head. Taste is super tart with great acetone and nectarine. Wonderful sour. Very intense and tart and not too funky.

750 mL corked bottle crushed with TheRon. Batch #2, bottle #500. Took about 5 minutes to pry the cork out of this thing. Pours a hazy orange with almost no head that disappears entirely after a few seconds. Aroma of Brett rubbery funkiness, a little acedic, and apricots of course. Flavor is very tart, but not overly sour, with more Brett, light fruits, and a dry finish. Damn fine stuff.

Fizzy hazy yellow pour with little head. nose of apricot, farmy and a has a tiny bit of spring florals in the nose. Taste is crisp and dry with an oak finish. Lemon, apricot, tartness and overall a long finish on the side of the palate. Quality brew

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 A fruited sour from Coors? Sounded dreadful, but I’m pleasantly surprised at how good this is. Bright, fresh apricots and soured yeast jump from the glass. Puckering tartness amidst soured fruit shows a shocking level of refinement. I would happily buy this on a regular basis. Why don’t they mass produce this?
