COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with only six ingredients. Malted 2-row barley, palisade hops, orange blossom honey, White Labs California Ale Yeast, apricots and San Diego carbon filtered tap water. Low bitterness is balanced by tart apricots with a sweet but not cloying finish. Barmy Ale can be aged up to eight years with a strong honey wine character emerging if cellared. Be careful not to be the barmiest of them all.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Was listed as 12%. Pours to a glowing golden body with a crisp white head. Aroma is light apricots. Flavor is more significantly apricots and some light floral hops. Moderate sweetness. Medium body, and surprisingly not syrupy. Doesn’t taste like 12% at all. Very dangerous brew for that reason.

blipp (7084) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Draft. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. Fruity apricot base, with a bit of ethanol boozy notes, mild-moderate sweetness, and a sharp fruity and boozy finish. Decent, but just a bit too big.

BeerBunker (943) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2015
On tap at Blind Pig. Pours golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is of apricots, hops, and malt. Taste is huge on the apricots, with a lot of hops. Has a nice malt backbone. The alcohol is definitely present, and gives it a nice kick. Lingering boozy apricot taste. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is sticky. This drinks very easy. I like this one a lot.

10/18/2014. On draft at Chuck’s 85th as part of a 4-Ballast Point beer sampler. Clear golden-brown color, medium amoount of head, mottled in appearance. Some lace on the sides. Bready, apricot aroma, some grassy hops. Flavor is mostly sweet, and a bit sour, not very bitter. Heavy, thick body, some alcohol burn, full mouth feel and long finish. Not particularly carbonated. Interesting beer.
