COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer’s already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

Bottle thanks to Will/Lee. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong apricot juice and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong apricot and funk with nice sournes. So good

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Tim. Murky, fully opaque, borderline radioactive shades of peach & orange with a white head much akin to what you’d get from a Sprite or 7-Up. Heavy must up front in the aroma that subsides into a smörgåsbord of apricot, stone fruit, peach, lactic acid, funky hay, slight vinegar, & a finishing touch of drying wood. Lacto duly noted with the first sip... Incredibly sour! Ripping notes of apricot & peach with a strong but not overwhelming vinegar, lactic, & acidic sourness. Less musty funk on the palate, perhaps just a hint of wet hay, but still plenty of drying oak in the finish that sucks the moisture from your mouth like a vacuum. Gets even more acidic with time; aftertaste of wood, stone fruit skin, apricot, vinegar, & lactic acid... Wow. Like a liquid apricot Warhead. Sharp, effervescent carbonation. Another really good Bruery sour that’s right up my alley.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with white head. Love apricot sours, this one is quite good. Very smooth, tart apricots. Really nicely put together.

jkwood04 (4649) - Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2014
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours muddy copper with a small head but something that looks like OJ pulp around the top of the glass. Aroma of sourness, apricots, light oak, pale malts, and light spices. Flavor the same with a nice sour note and the apricots blending well. Average texture. The weird appearance is the only thing that takes away from this beer.

Pours muddy gold. Apricots, sour as fuck. Like, break out the tums sour. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 Bomber shared by Brandon - thanks! Hazy golden pour with a white head. Tart and sour apricot nose and taste. Delicious!

Ontape (465) - Valley Village, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Exactly what you’d want / expect from a low-ABV Bruery apricot sour. Rueuze oak-aged with apricot jam I think. Dig it.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Very cloudy golden color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma is barnyard action, funk, leather, fruity. Medium to light bodied, funky with a tart finish.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2015 March 22, 2014 - on tap at Bruery tasting room. Cloudy orange pour with limited head. Aroma was sour apricot. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also had yeast. Nicely balanced sour.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours very hazy with a yellow beige head. Aroma is first sour, then very ripe apricot. Med body. Flavor is really smooth sour apricot. Supported by oak/wood. Very, very tasty.
