marcus (6436) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Poured from a bottle at Triple Rock Sour Beer Sunday. Pours murky golden with no head and a strange fruity aroma. There is a subtle apricot and caramel malt flavor with a vinous finish that lingers on the palate.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of rich tart apricot notes, white bread and oak. Flavour of rich tart apricot, lactic acid, lemon, pinot noir, wood and honey-like sweetness. Some minerals as well. Medium bodied and high carbonation. Like a berliner weisse really.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
75 cl bottle @ tiong
Aroma has lactic acid, grapefruit and some earthy tones. Also sour cream. Flavour is tart with green apples, sour cream and lactic tones. Also some vinegar-like sourness and acidic white wine. Apricots are barely noticeable behind the sourness. ”Imperial berliner weisse.”

JBPortland (747) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
750ml bottle pours hazy pale orange with a finger of head, tons of fruit sludge in bottle, left out of pour. Nose is tart musty juicy apricot, toasted bread, dry oak, light funk, citrus. Taste is bright acidic apricot, dusty oak funk, touch of grain and white bread, wood, lacto. Finish is sour acidic apricot and marmalade, orange zest, dusty attic wood. Became more acidic as it warmed and while still delicious, was very sour by the end of the glass.

The look of this beer is quite nice, the cloudy orange. It has a nice fizz. But something about it’s acidity, reminds me of bile. I was quite disappointed. It could be the bottle I received. I am willing to give this one another go. But first round, I was not impressed.
