Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2014, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big apricot, white fruit, peach, hint of white grape into some nice wheat, biscuit, bready notes, hints of lacto and lemon. Taste is a nice tart lacto, lemony start into some apricot, peach, nice stone fruit into a bit of biscuit, bread, some yeasty notes, finishing sour, slightly sweet. Tasty, but not a whole lot going on.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a nice white head. ton of apricot and peaches with a bit of lactic and vanilla. Flavor is pretty straight forward. Lightly to moderately tart. A fair amount of fruit but kind of one dimensional. Moderately sweet. Pretty easy to drink and it seemed to be popular with the ladies at our table, but not horribly complex. I would get fucked up on it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very jammy, high in malt, lovely verrrry apricoty taste. This is close to what I wish Pyramid apricot tasted like and falls a little short of my fave apricot wheat from Lost Coast.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Nice head when first poured, the head dissolved pretty quickly but still slightly intact with a frothy look, there is a lacing left on the glass from the beer, very cloudy golden color, almost opaque, very appetizing color, looks like a fruity beer
Aroma: Wow, Apricot is obviously the strongest key note to this beer, the apricot smell is very pronounced, very refreshing smell and seems like it would be a great summer beer
Taste: Apricots, apricots, apricots. do not taste any bitterness, it is a very light beer with a great fruit keynote, pretty smooth beer, definitely can tell they use a lot of fruit when brewing
Palette: can feel the carbonation on the tongue, apricot aftertaste is where you can taste a lot of flavor
Overall: This is a very refreshing beer, fruit beer are one of my favorite therefore I throughly enjoy this apricot blonde. It is nice to actually be able to taste the fruit that they brew with.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange-yellow color in the snifter. It smells slightly sour and a slight hint of apricots. The taste is lactic and a bit sour with very little apricot compared to their other apricot blonde ale. This is a lot like New Belgium Eric’s Ale but not quite as tasty or aromatic. i actually had to buy a growler of the regular apricot just because....
Serving type: on-tap
