3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (2013 Project shared with the Mrs; thanks Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy deep apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells tart and mildly sweet with loads of apricot and some oak as well. Tastes like it smells with notes of lacto and a pleasantly tart mouthfeel. You can almost taste the fuzz on the apricot. Good stuff.

Bottle shared at GTMW ticket line, pours a hazy golden with a thick white head and lacing, the aroma is of heavy fruit and apricot with a good amount of funk thrown in, the flavor has a really tart fruity front end with a sour kick in the finish, kind of one note though, fruit and sour, not much else comes through, not bad.

Cloudy pale yellow to orange beer, small aery off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty smelly, sourish, some urine, sourish, weird, fruity, apricots I guess. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish start, little bitter, lemon rind, some vinegar, lots of citric acidity, like lemon drop candy or something. Aftertaste: lots of citric acidity, lemon rind bitterness. Not a big fan.
