750ml bottle split. Huge nose of funk, fruit, and a farmhouse doughiness. Extremely tart and sour that balanced by the smoothness of apricot. Not sweet at all. Finishes dry and puckering. This is one of the best balanced sours I have had.

This is a really tasty apricot sour with a lots of fruity and juicy flavors. A little vinous, plenty sour and it just tastes awesome.

Bottle HUGE thanks to wchesser in a sour swap! Batch 2 bottled 11/12/12 bottle number 1043. Pour has a lightly hazy orange golden color with a light coat of white foam that fell right off. Aroma has medium acidity, dry apricot, brett, golden sour base, light barrel wood, and yeast. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation quite low. Flavor gets intense on the acidity, light apricot, brett, oak, dry lemon, and a lingering intense finish. I know the bottle is over six months old but I expected more brightness in the fruit however I am very impressed in this beer overall and coming out of Coors Brewing is a real head spinner.

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.
