06.02.2015, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange and mild sour-ish, old potato cellar, yeast, cherry stones, sour grass, almonds, something strange citrusy. Taste is sour-ish dry, soda powder, citrus peel, lemon, sorrel, raw rhubarb, cherry stones, yeast, minerals. Medium bitterness, dry citrusy mouthfeel. Aroma is just weird, but taste is very nice.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautifully clear. Booming sourness in the aroma, peachy fruit but damn that is zingy! It pushes you to the limit but itís sooooo tasty. Zing city. Lemons, plums, peaches. Itís almost like biting into a green plum. I would say that was pretty Accurate. Probably be too much to have more than one, which is why it doesnít score higher, but it does well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours clear blonde, normal to big white head, fades rather fast to a good layer of foam. Smell is citrussy sour. Bit of oak as well, and to the dry side. Taste is dry, very astigent-type of lemon-sour. Very citrussy. I donít get cherries though, not in any aspect of the beer ( accept for the description on the label ) Its just to dry and lemon-ish for me, reminds me of a timmermans Oude Geuze which is - to me - not that good to begin with... I expected more from Almanac...

375 ml bottle purchased at Distillers Outlet in Poway a little over a year ago ($11.99). Actually my first rating for this brewery, but have had their delightful beers a number of times locally on tap and at bottle shares. I believe that this is the first batch which states on the label that it includes foraged apricots (as the second batch does) but also loquats and cherries...apparently the latter two fruits are not found in the second batch?? Pours a hazy peach color with some floating sediment and one finger of fluffy white foam. AROMA of yeasty old white wine, musty funky barrel, underripe white peach, and lemons. FLAVOR of tart lemon and limeade, dry oak, various fruit notes (some kinda vague notes of the apricot and even the loquat but not the cherry), some light vinegar, and lactic sourness. Quite tart on the initial sip but finishes with some smooth (non-puckering) sourness. Lovely sour, but I kind of wish I had drunk it fresh to perhaps get more of the foraged stone fruits that went into this. (180, 970)
