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.

Was just giddy to try this one. My name, my sister’s name, barrel aged saison with fruit, hype. Yes and yes. Peach, apricot, juicy, nicely dry, delicate, not very complex. Just a really great beer that I honestly could drink all day. The wine added just a touch of extra fruitiness. Lovely.

Bottle. Orange pour. Nice sweet apricot aroma with hints of orange and lacto tartness. Tastes like an apricot sweettart with a full fruit flavor melding into a solid tart body. Really nicely done.

Bottle with the crew. Lots of fruit on the aroma. Light tartness and lots of fruit again in the flavor. Murky yellow color. Really light and refreshing. Bit of grassiness on the finish. Lemon.

Tasted at the 8th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on Nov 9, 2013. This wild ale pours a cloudy yellow gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, apricot and funky. A medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity, tart and sweet. The hops are earthy. Tart and fruity, funky and sweet. The tartness builds as you go. Nice apricots flavors, not too sweet. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

750 bottle big thanks to John for sharing. Sour lemon funk with that touch of apricot. Semi dry. Really really good.

lefossoyeur (482) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Golden Orange pour with a nice but small frothy white head. Superb apricot scent with lactic notes. Light crispy body, super fresh lactic fruity flavors, delicate apricot notes. Fantastic sour finish, very well balanced. Super stuff.

Bottle shared at Kernel, cheers MannyGoldberg. Hazy pale straw with small white head. Fresh peach and apricot aroma, light and zesty. Spritzy carb. Flavour of tart stone fruit, grape skin, lime and soda, apricot and unripe nectarine. Top notch.

pushkinwow (2150) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from chebyshev, think batch 2, shared for the joint 12K tasting. Hazy yellow, Brett and some oak, peaches, epsom salts, light pepper, horse blanket and a bit of tannin, moderate carbonation and body, becomes quite dry with a nice finish although lacks the depth I was expecting.

callmemickey (3115) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Murky golden-peach colored body, thin white head, and sparse lacing. Apricot, lactic wheat, light lemon, peach, and wheat. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, moderate acidity, and a touch of sweetness, giving this an orange juice like feel.

toxichop (408) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 10, 2014
P: Hazy yellow with a thin white head. S: Very funky beer, Apricots, wines, socks, oak and lemons. T: Juicy apricots, some yogurt tartness and a bit of lacto in the back. M: Thin with soft carbonation and a decent amount of tartness. O: I like the juicy apricots on this one, and its no doubt a delicious beer but I wanted more out of this one.
