From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. The pour is a dirty rusty color with a small gray head that falls down with no lace. The aroma is more raspberry up front with a nice apricot and a strong funkiness. There is a little lemon present as well. The flavor is similar. There is a nice funky tart berry and peach combo that offers a little vinousness. The mouth feel is a little heavy for what I’d like to see in a sour, and it’s relatively well carbonated. The aftertaste is all fruit and funk on the back end. This is a pretty interesting way to start the tasting off!

Taste is sour, sweet peaches, raspberries, funky, barnyard, great. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, raspberry funky aftertaste. Overall, this is quite good.

This a 2014 bottle and it’s still pretty sour and funky. Raspberries barely come through.

Cybercat (4991) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Pours hazy grapefruit with a thin eggshell head. Aroma features citrus and fresh malt notes. Sharply sour flavor delivers grapefruit and woody tones. Body and fizz are both good. Ride the cascade!

davidezdonz (267) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 7, 2016
A 750ml corked and caged bottle from 2014 project, poured into a To Øl teku glass. It poured a slightly hazy strawberry red colour with a half finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aromas were funky, oak, raspberries, lemon and a hint of apricot. Tastes sour, tart, oak, raspberry and strawberry. Dry, medium bodied with high carbonation. Overall some very nice funk, easy to drink and definitely does not feel like 9.29% abv. I did not know what apricot noyaux was but apparently it is from apricot kernels. I guess this explained the lack of apricot I was expecting in the taste.

750 cc from WHole Foods PM. Pours hazy, deep orangy toward ruby with off-white head. Nose is tart lactic fruit, raspberry, apricot, oak. Tastes tart, with great raspberry and apricot flavor, some earthy yeasty funk, and a smooth, oaky, very fruity finish. Great beer.
