Tasted on 3/4/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours hazy dark orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is sour lemon peel with white wine vinegar and plenty of ripe natural apricot aroma. The flavor is nicely sour with plenty of lemon peel and vinous white wine vinegar, and there is some apricot underlying, but it is pretty faded at this point. The body is medium with a nice tannic quality, plenty of stinging, almost sparkling carbonation, and a long sour with a hint of apricot finish.

rosenbergh (8123) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Draught at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, Portland, OR. Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Dryness, fruits, sourness and mild sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is super sour and tart... I don't know if there's some apricot notes or not, it's just pure sourness... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
