marcus (6596) - 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.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a straw color ale with a nice foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of sour and tart notes with some light funky yeast notes is quite nice. Taste is a great mix between some sour and tart notes with some funky yeast. Apricot notes a very subtle and kind of hard to distinguish. Pinot noir barrel lend a light vinous feel to the beer. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable sour but I would have preferred more apricot notes to be upfront.

DesertDevil (534) - Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Very acidic yet lovely nose with aromas of fresh apricot, moderate lactobacillus funk, some wet horse blanket, notes of vanilla and light oak. Pours a semi-cloudy light lemon color. Light, tart taste with mild stone-fruit flavors and sweet orange with a very dry acidic finish. Pretty darn nice.

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.

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.”
