Dating on the bottom of the can hard to read. It pours a hazy orange with a 1 finger head of foam that quickly shrinks to a ring around the glass. I smell loads of apricots that impart a suggested tartness. Nothing bitter here to my nose. Apricot tartness up front, mid palate, and through the finish. The lacto is on full throttle goodness here.

Can. Bright apricot aroma with notes of lacto funk. Pours orange-amber colored with a very thin and non-retentive white head that also has no lacing. Starts with fruity apricot flavors with a light body and lively effervescent mouthfeel. Finishes tart with a good balance of lacto sourness to apricot sweet. Nice twist on their apricot blonde.

Beaver (1666) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2016
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy dark gold with a fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet apricot and some soapy malts.

The flavor is sweet apricot with a tart sourness that help balance the sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, a nice lighter sour. I like this better than the regular apricot because of the balance from the sourness.

Had from the can, poured into a glass. Hazy gold color, strong apricot aroma. The actual apricot taste is artificial and the souring is harsh and unpleasant. Tastes like it was soured with straight lactic acid. Carbonation was med to high.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
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.
