On draft at Zwanze Day ’12 Chicago. Stupid good, funk frenzy with love on the side, perfectly tart and earthy with the refreshing characteristics of the best lambics ever.

Side by side with Halia. Pours a deeper gold color with a white head. Aromas of soured fruit. Taste is sour, some lactic, some acidic. Aggressive Flavors of rotten fruit, some fecal matter. Intense, extreme and unforgiving on any level.

cards04 (2380) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Received in trade. Thanks Tim! Pours a hazy orange marmalade colour. Aromas are beautiful ripe apricots. Maybe notes of bubblegum as well. Flavours are very sour. You get some apricot jamminess. But lots of sour vinegar too. Awesome stuff.

Zoret (151) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 16, 2015
Cervesa ŕcida i refrescant amb aromes de albercoc. En boca es nota una mica més ŕcida, en aroma es més afruitada. Gran!

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours gold with a large head. Nose shows dried apricots along with some funky notes and lemon zest. Awesome. Tart flavours but with some prominent apricot lending a bit of sweetness. Pretty damn acidic!

Bottle at home in garden on hottest day of 2015, 1st July 15. Pours light golden, aroma is light apricot, some funk. Taste is light apricot, some apricot core and skin, wood, funk, barrel, earthy, musty and complex. The base lambic comes through nicely, with sour unripe apricot. Really good sipper, great for hot weather
