COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ripe NW Apricots are fermented with this beer for 3 additional months. This hand packaged and bottle conditioned ale will only get better with age ... good luck waiting.

Bottle shared by brainlair. Mostly orange hazy pour with a thin white head. Fruity, sour aroma. I guess its apricot, but I can’t say I really know what an apricot smells or tastes like. A bit of funk on on the nose. Moderately sour with lots of fruit. Some citrus and lemongrass. Light bitter, woody funk finish. Good sour.

Bright orange body with a large white head. The nose is apricots, peaches, light apple and a touch of honey and some musty yeast. The taste is moderately sweet, moderately tart, lots of peach and cotton candy, some hay and funk. Decent.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2010
750ml. 2009 bottle. Consumed June 2010. A golden brown beer with a moderately good head that barely starts to fall. The head seems to stay and leave a lasting layer of foam. The aroma is very nice, a nice mix of fruit which I guess is the apricots and sour. The taste is very nice also, sweet, very fruity, sour, and it makes you lick your lips from the fruity sourness kind of like a hit of top notch doja. This is a very enjoyable American sour that seems to get some sweetness from the fruit which makes for a nice mix of sweet and sour and not artificial sweet like some other sours I have tried. This is a thirst quenching sour with a nice addition of fruit.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Courtesy of Maggie at Monk’s. Thanks Maggie! Split with James, Dallas, and Ann. Pours a transluscent, hazy orange with a bubbly, thin white head. Aroma of apricot, peach, funk, sweet malt, oak, zesty hops, and tons of floral notes, especially lavender. Meduim bodied with a tart, sour palate balanced well by the smoothness of the malts. The oak aging definitely accounts for much of this beer’s quality; fresh, it would likely taste to acidic and sweet. Very good sour.

Off yellow pour, hazy with lots of head. Smells of apricot funk with lots of sourness. Very nice balance of the apricot and the sourness. Thanks to the bartender at monks for this one! Shared with james and pat.

750 ml bottle @ redlight redlight. Fresh apricots on the nose with hints of funk. Pours golden blonde with an orange hue and white head. Sweet apricots upfront with sour tart flavors and oak. Nice, not as sour as I was expecting but still excellent!
