COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aurelian Lure was made by taking mature, barrel-aged sour beer and refermenting it to dryness in oak barrels with apricots from northern California. Dozens of microorganisms, including wild yeasts native to the Texas Hill Country, transformed the apricots through refermentation to create a beer unique to our land.

ClarkVV (5367) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2016
August 2015 bottle, shared very generously shared by Nick on 6/10/16. Thanks, man!
Soft, pale, flaxen gold-apricot body has some very light maize tints and shows good clarity. Off-white head atop is medium-sized and shows moderate to moderately-strong retention.
Ripe, juicy apricots combine with oak to give off a juicy, almost cedary aroma filled with light lactic notes and tons of bright brett. Little bit of acetic character deepens the funk and the finish is full of apricot and oak.
Lightly sweet malts create a solid base as oily oak, apricot juice and light acetic notes definitely provide a huge amount of flavor. Tartness on the end is pleasing and helps clear away the oak and malt, leaving a crisp apricot character. Ultra tight carbonation, as the best JKs always have with good attenuation and still a malty texture. Even after 10 months, this little guy is still an intensely flavorful experience with strong sourness/tartness. These things are made so well and it’s no wonder they usually age wonderfully.

Bottle shared by djd07 - thanks again, DJ! Bro slayed most of my long-time Jester King wants in a single sitting. This is blend 3, August 2015. Pours a hazy white wine color with a white head that settles into a ring and some thin film film, leaving spots of lace in the glass. Notes of apricot, oak, white grapes, lemon, lime, florals, vanilla, and funk. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour, funky mouthfeel. Very nice apricot sour.

ineedbeer (1657) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Poured from a Blend 3, 08/2015 bottle. Aroma is apricot forward with a nice, moderate stone fruit character. Light citrus notes with light oak and white wine tannins. Hints of tropical fruit and some light grain notes. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium small, fairly thick, white head that exhibits good retention as it slowly recedes. Faint lacing and no legs. Flavor has a medium light to moderate acidity with a light citrus note. Some light pineapple and tropical fruit. Hints of oak with some light tannins. Moderate apricot notes, but not as juicy as in the aroma. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice apricot forward farmhouse ale with balanced acidity.

Huhzubendah (3376) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Hazy orange body with a bubbly white head. Aromas of oak, vanilla, stone fruit. The apricot character is not especially assertive. While the beer is certainly tasty, it’s less extraordinary than I hoped / expected. Lightly sweet, mild to medium tartness and a subtle acetic quality in the finish. Good stuff.
