4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sampled on 9/2/2012. This wild/sour ale pours a hazy light golden yellow color (apricot) from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is apricot, tart, slightly funky, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity, tart and sweet. Nice apricot flavors, they mix well with all that tartness. Some barnyard and some citrus as well. Truly an amazing beer for a most unlikely source. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of forgetfu. Served in a snifter. Pours a slightly-hazed light orange color with a good white head and nice lacing. Nose has a really impressive apricot presence with a touch of grain and nice acidity. Flavor has really nice apricot with good acidity and a very mild funk presence. Would be better with more funk, but I can’t complain about this. Light body with medium acidity. Quite nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Rackhouse, pour was very hazy yellow-orange with thin to no head from the acidity, aroma brought huge lemon, acid, nice slight funk, vanilla and oak, sweetening into some apricot as well. Tate is mouth blasting sour, puckering acidity with a big lemon, lactic, and slightly funky note, hints of vanilla and oak, nice sweet apricot towards the end, drying out well. While it’s not complex, it is super sour, and very delicious, right up my alley.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Rackhouse Pub during AC Golden Tap Takeover. Poured into a mini-snifter, a hazy, grapefruit-color with no head. Aroma is apricot, brett funk, barnyard, sweat, and green grapes. Taste is very sour from start to finish, with hints of apricot and muscat. Each sip leaves my mouth feeling tingly. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is high. Overall, mouth-puckering, yet refreshing; a very sour beer. Delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Rackhouse. Hazy light straw with no head, with a pungent aroma of sharp acidity and sweet apricot, and a tinge of sour oak. Taste is pretty sour, but also has complexity and nuance. Tart apricot and some sour/wild yeasty oak tones fill the palate, and a little vinegar. Bracing and wild, but also sweet and delicious.
