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.

Huhzubendah (3229) - 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.

Bottle, batch 3. Thanks robertdale. Hazy yellow. Nose is super ripe apricot pit. Slight funk. Taste is jammy apricot. There is a bit of sour but not much more than you might get from a super sour apricot. Really ripe center. Like the part with the red stuff. Touch of funk. Taste isn’t that intense, rather very balanced easy drinking.

Reynolds314 (3072) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Big fan of this. Very pale grey straw hazy color with light white head. Aroma is nice apricot, light basement, and a touch of vanilla. Taste is lightly tart with mild fruit with everything very recerved and nice for jester king sour. Great stuff.

Blend 2. Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is very nice! Tart apricots, light funk, latex. Reminds me a bit of De Garde funk. Nice sour in the flavor with a lingering tart apricots. Very nice!

Bottle thanks to MikeWoj. Pours clear golden apple, small white head, dissipates quickly , some lacing. Aroma is stonefruit, skins, some oak, mineral water, light brett, hints of nail polish remover. Flavor is dry, medium tart, a bit harsh and acetonic, light funk, some dirty socks along with stonefruit, mineral water again. Light body, lingering tartness. Try as I might I just can’t get into Jester King.
