UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 A fruited sour from Coors? Sounded dreadful, but Iím 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 donít they mass produce this?

Share by forgetfu. Thanks Bill! The beer is hazy and appears a golden apricot hue (go figure). The aroma is surprisingly good. I am already shocked that a huge macro brewing corporation is producing lambic, let alone lambic I would buy and drink regularly. The flavor brings prominent apricots. Mild tartness balanced with a delicate sweetness. Light acetic finish with a touch of funk. Good stuff. I would have this again.

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.

My first Coors beer in 30 years. Bottle courtesy of forgetfu, thanks! Murky golden color, small white head. Aroma of sour summer fruit. Taste is softly sour fruit juice. Nice.

750mL thanks to forgetfu. Pours full haze peach with small white foam dwindling fast. Nose is full starfruit and apricot/thick nectarine. Taste is tangy, juicy, clean, leathery. Lactic yogurt heavy. Very nice. 8/3/8/4/16=3.9 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 canít complain about this. Light body with medium acidity. Quite nice.
