Thanks to grownfool for this one! Orange, slightly cloudy, no head. Smells like stone, balsamic vinegar, and apricots. Taste is more fruity than I thought based on the aroma, with apricot, apple, pear and peach coming through. Some stoney flavors mix with balsamic vinegar and dry white wine. Gets a little fruitier as it opens up. Also, not as sour as I was expecting, which works well here. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy straw yellow gold with white head. Funk, apricot, citrus, and tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with apricot notes, tartness, and dry.

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Draft at Monks Cafe in Phila. Bottom third of the keg. Cloudy peach color with a large frothy foam top. Splashes of lace. Very juicy. Wonderful aroma of powdered sugared fruit candy sours. Pink peaches. Apricots. Nectarines. Yellow plums. Watermelon. This is likely a recent batch because it still holds on to a tremendous amount of its original fruitiness. Just enough dusty dryness for balance. Nearly perfect. Should be wonderful aged but is wonderful now!

AirForceHops (4684) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 16, 2015
750 ml bottle, thanks to Adam, thanks for getting me my whale, missed this every single year! 2013 vintage on the cork. Hazy gold color with still lasting head. Aroma is funky apricot, musty lambic yeast and light acid.

The flavor is tart and sour all together at this point. The yeast is becoming tart and souring in the finish. Carbonation is lively and nicely effervescent. Still a very mild fruit after the swallow but for sure much more tart than fruit juicy. Still a very nice drink.

Wow that’s acidic, sour apricot with a tart sweet fruity finish. Great. --- foufoune 2015 glass at the brewery was a golden honey color with a corkish nose that is so so. The taste however was a lovely soft apricot, lightly acidic & tart.
