4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden yellow with a thick white head that falls down slowly to a thin cap. The aroma is full of apricot and wine. There is a light grain and oak with this that is a little interesting. The flavor is good. There is a resounding tart apricot skin and flesh up front. The vinousness makes an appearance, and there is a hint of funk and vinegar. There is a nice barrel to it, and the fruit really does shine nicely. The mouth feel is crisp and clean with a bright effervescent carbonation and a lingeringly tart and sour apricot flesh lingering on the finish. I love the sourness on the back end of this one. It makes my mouth water and just want more!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 2016 vintage bottle.
Aroma is rather apricot forward with some light pineapple, citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light oak notes with a bit of a grainy bread character.
Pours a very hazy, pale yellow straw color with a medium sized, thin, white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers a bit thicker on the edges. Light lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a a light sweetness. Some light grain notes with medium oak character. Moderate apricot notes though not as strong and bright as in the aroma. Light bitterness with some tannins from the oak and apricot skins.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice apricot beer with a balanced, but strong acidity. Some nice, balanced oak notes. Acidity is a bit strong perhaps, but still a very nice apricot sour.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Dangerous bottleshares 20th edition!! Featuring Zakoon and Aaron. This one was an extra from a trade with Craig. Pours a hazy yellowish with a white, rather fizzy head. Aroma has funk, stone fruit, peach, aprictot, oak, super fresh fruity, but also some sweeter, spicy notes like vanilla, maybe even some cardamum. Taste is extremely sour! Burning sour, vinegary, grapes, lemon, poison. Tastes really good, but it’s slightly over the top. High carbonation and a burning, juicy body. Drinking this with apologies to my dentist.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2016 bottle. Medium yellow in color. Very cloudy but not quite opaque in a small tulip; it settles some after a few minutes. The head is white, medium-sized and fairly fizzy. Lots of apricots in the aroma. Fairly juicy. Strong acid note, mostly lacto in character, mild vinegar. Moderate to medium oak. Taste has medium acidity. It’s fairly sour but not mouth-numbingly so. Pretty nice fruit flavor. Good bit of under ripe apricot. Stronger vinegar acidity in the taste than aroma, particularly comes out as the beer warms a bit. Pretty big lemon. Some yogurty flavor, as well. Light to medium body. Oaky aftertaste. The sourness gets a bit intense as the beer warms, but it’s rather nice at first. Solid but not great sour.
