marcus (7554) - 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.

simont1 (417) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2015
Inviting aroma of lemon, peach, yoghurt, big apricot, very fruity and a nice stonefruity oak twang to it. Taste is lots of apricot, minor funk with a good hay juiciness to it. Great mouthfeel, gueuze like carbonation.

Frank (3339) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2015
This was batch eight according to the bottle and is a very nice pit-fruit sour/saison/whatever on par w/ Side Project Fuzzy and some other things that seem a bit more hyped up around these parts. It’s very cloudy and light orange in color w/ a tight-bubbled white head. It has a mild nose w/ lots of warm spice and fruit. Tasted, this is a crisply tart beer, very mildly sweet and nicely fruity. This is a medium bodied brew w/ prickly carbonation and a touch of apple skin tannin in the finish. Definitely, this is a very nice beer.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle: Cloudy, bright sunburst orange body; very juicy, dense, & basically opaque. Foamy white head settles to a collar quickly. Smells like an apricot basket at the farmer’s market covered in ten-year old musty-ass cobwebs. Goddamn! So fresh & inviting on the nose with a huge bit of funk, driftwood, oak, lemon, peach, & tons of apricot. Flavor is even more juicy. Bursting with apricot all over the place. Nice lactic underbody with a mild vanilla yogurt & mineral water finish. Hints of lemon, peach, musty barnyard hay, & damp grass flutter throughout. Finishes clean & dry with mouthfuls of juicy apricot goodness. Wheelhouse beer for me. This was fantastic on all levels.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle courtesy of Stephen and shared with the Shape crew. Orangée trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme au bouquet suret mais au rétro offrant de belles effluves d’abricot fermenté presque de confiture. Palais offre un très bon caractère de l’abricot sans tomber dans un style ’sour’ qui fait de l’excès. Retrouve un profil suret sur un léger boisé mais bien ponctué par les notes d’abricot. Léger en épicé venant probablement du chêne, fini râpeux avec une note plus présente du Pinot Noir. Après on peut discuter du mérite d’une touche saison qui reste cependant assez discrète.

Danyel (1335) - Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is lots of funk, apricots, stone fruits, juicy. Taste is light bodied, good fruit, easy drinking. Overall, a nice beer.

Ferris (7678) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle - Funky creamy lacto and stone fruit. Cloudy gold with a white head. Lacto, funky cheese and apricot. Light tart and balanced. Nice.

750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized head. Apricots, peaches, funky, some vinous notes, and citrus.

Hair6a11 (1426) - Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2015
B7 Bottle : Pour is modest, white, with average retention in this glass - It pours hazy light golden. The nose is grassy, lactic, stone fruit presence, with feint barrel presence - It’s nice. It’s also generally subdued. Then again, I just had a La Fosse. The Saison label (barrel aged with apricot) is far more relevant than the sour category in my world. Either way : It begins subdued, once again - mineral water moves to sweeping grass, which moves to a kiss of wine barrel presence. Stone fruit rounds out the back end, and again, its light. Truly a wonderful drinker and near perfect balance - but I would never go out of my way for this one again.

Huhzubendah (2996) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 28, 2015
A huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing. Hazy, straw yellow body with some yeast evident. Small, broken head. Lovely aroma of lactic funk and citrus. Orange, apricot, melon, assorted stone fruit with tropical notes as well. Juicy and delicious. Gently tart balanced my a natural fruity sweetness. Notes of pineapple, guava. Light in body and dangerously drinkable. Fabulous.

rxeight (1891) - Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle, Apricot juice sweetness. Just a touch of sour. Apricot pit finish. Opened this after a de garde imperial apricot bu, and this didn’t come close. Not bad, but way overhyped.
