Rusty Orange. Strong funky aroma - tart, fruity. Taste is lots of funk, sour, slight vinegar, oak, with a nice apricot tang. Unreal

Hophopper (12) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2014
Pale gold colored beer with a little head. Aromas of apricots and salt. Taste is very sour and salty, but while warming up turns over to a subtile sweet apricot tastes.

umich03jm (1814) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Aug 2013 bottling. Very cloudy, pale yellow-orange pour with a small foamy head that fades very slowly. Aroma is pretty funky with lots of yogurt, damp basement, and citrus-y fruit. Taste starts with a bunch of sour, acidic citrus fruit. Doesnít really taste like apricots but itís definitely citrus-y. Lots of oak and some vinegar too. Sourness is moderate, strong tart finish. Love the soft but fizzy carbonation. Really good beer but I thought I was gonna like this more than I did since itís a favorite for a few of my friends.

Bule (700) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2014
750ml Bottle pours a hazy golden color. A lot of froth if not poured slowly. Poured at fridge temperature although recommended at cellar temperature. Strong sourness and mild apricots. The sourness mellowed as it warmed and balanced well against the apricot.

Amazing gueuze lambic, very complex and full of different tastes, so enjoyable, very sour, grains, cereals, wild fruity and flowery notes. Lot of fruits. Masterpiece!

Habanero (2473) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, deep golden with a small, lacing, white head. Aroma of apricotbarnyard and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up dru and more sour. Medium bodied, watery texture and soft carb. An excellent Sour.

bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Wonderful apricot smell. Not too overpowering just perfect. Beautiful sour base, then wonderful apricot flavors. Not stale apricot but very ripe apricots. Great use of the natural fermentation almost cask like.
