Samuel214 (494) - SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2016 Flaska direkt från Sante Adairius som hade turen att hamna hos min amerikanske vän och granne. Finns på Esquires lista över "The 10 Best Beers You’ll Never Taste". En djupt disig, aprikosfärgad vätska som närmast liknar nyponsoppa eller billig mulltivitamindryck. Stor, syrlig doft med mängder av överjästa aprikoser, syrliga aprikoskärnor, höiga stalltoner och med ett litet inslag av nyponsylt. En aningen större kropp som drar något åt det torrare hållet, samtidigt som det finns en oljig tendens. Den fyller munnen väl och är stor i smaken. Inledningsvis en stor syrlighet som efter en stund får det att strama åt bak i munnen. Liksom i lukten är här mycket aprikos och aprikoskärnor. När den första vågen är över framträder mer subtila delar av smakbilden, där fruktsötma och lite strävare ekfatstoner får ta plats. Dessa ligger kvar länge i den långsamt skiftande smakbilden. Riktigt gott med en komplex och växande smakbild. Den tappar liksom aldrig stinget.

(En fût au Hamilton’s Tavern): Des abricots dans une marre boisée, acétique, minérale et vigoureusement asséchante. Très intense et difficile à suivre comparativement à la moyenne SARA.

Zlotta (1905) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2016
Sampled from 0.75 l bottle, shared by Maakun at Not THT, thanks! Slightly hazy, golden amber with a white head. Sourish-fruity, moderately funky aroma of peach, barnyard, lemon peel, gooseberry, wheat and oak. Moderately sour, very fruity and quite funky taste of peach, gooseberry, lemon peel, rhubarb, oak, wheat and barnyard, followed by a medium long, quite tart and woody-dry finish. Medium body, tangy, slightly effervescent and quite astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really good!

Bottle shared. Hazy golden orange with fizzy almost white head. Apricots, some mineral notes, lactic, but of funk, dough, white wine, green leaves, soft spicy notes, some unexpected roasted touches to it. It’s nice and fruity but with almost as much grapes as apricots. Medium sour and very light bitter. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation.

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, not sure of the batch. The pour is a hazy orangey golden color with a thick white head that falls to a thin cap. The aroma is full of apricot flesh. There is a lactic funkiness to it and it offers a little wine character. One can definitely tell this is more saison based. The flavor is a little better. There is a lot of chunky apricots, a light yeastiness, a good tartness, and a little funky saison wraps it up. The mouth feel is excellent. It’s light and crisp with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly tart apricot and funk on the finish. This is a little disappointing, for what I was expecting, but I’d read that coming into it. Bummer. Need to find a Westley now.
