3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks to either Ron or Jeff... I forgot! Bottle 97 of 1174. The color of ripe apricots (so cliché); golden, yellow-orange, super opaque & dense in color with a loud, fizzy, stark white head that disappears almost instantly. Tons of milky, lactic sourness & barnyard hay funk in the aroma. Tart apricot juice, soaked oak, a touch of earthy nuttiness, sweet-tarts, yogurt, a hint of lemon acidity. Tastes like over-ripened apricot juice. Bruised apricot mixture of sweet & lightly tart, underlying grass & earthiness, hints of rotten fruit skin towards the finish. Hints of lemon, lactic acid, & some drying wet oak that coats the palate in the aftertaste. Almost more of a juice than a beer, but damn tasty... Since, you know, juice is good & all.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle #972 of 1174. To start off I have to say I think the base beer for this (their Polycot) is a mediocre at best apricot wheat....this is something else entirely. Huge apricot and white wine nose with some lemon juice. Slightly cloudy deep (apricot) orange. Good carbonation. Apricot, vinious white wine, bread, distinct peach, and a nice tart zippy finish. Delicious...liked it more than Cascade’s...this is fuller bodied and both fruitier and more tart. Wanted to be drinking this with a nice cream-based pasta dish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (The cork shot off like a rocket, so be careful with this baby)… This beer rocks!… Cloudy yellow ale with golden highlights and no head. The bouquet showcases heaps of fruity apricot and a generous measure of acidic, oaken funk. Medium to full-bodied with airy, champagne-like carbonation. The fruity flavor is a blend of juicy-ripe apricot, lightly sour acidity and subtle, bready bitterness. Tart, fruity, tangy finish. Thanks goes out to JoeTheYounger for shipping this world class beer my way!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour at Hangar 24. Pours with a hazed yellow hued body with a medium sized white head. Strongly fruity and appricot dominated aroma, light oak, some funky brett notes, light oak. Flavors are a touch herbal, fresh apricot. Oddly a bit spicy, lively carbonation, fruity, dry with some tannins in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(rating 3300) Bottle... Poured hazy, golden/yellow with a mild white head. Awesome perfume, fruity nose with apricots and other light fruits. Tasted of funky brett with tart fruits. Only middy acidic as the brett funk shined here with also notes of oak to add even more dimension. This was an awesome beer.
