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.

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.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apricots, brett and oak. Light-bodied with flavors of funky apricots, brett yeast and oak. The finish is moderately tart with an apricot aftertaste. Pretty good beer overall, and proof that the big breweries can make a decent beer if they want.
