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.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, lemons, straw, and hints of apricots. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of brettanomyces and acetone, combined with medium notes of malt, and light notes of tart finish.

Bottle, 75 cl. Abricot colored, hazy, no head. What a delicious fruity aroma - slightly sour abricot-scented, zesty, acidic, light woody. Sharp, fresh fruity flavor, light malty sweetness, smooth oak, dry tart finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of anacrime. Pours a cloudy golden with a small, rough white head. Very tart and funky aroma. Medium body, lowish carbonation, a slight initial whiff of sweet fruit - I actually believe I can detect a little apricot - but soon a very dry and astringent tartness takes over. A subtle and pleasant touch of wood. Very enjoyable actually. A Bruery take on FouFoune? 250213

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Julien, Pier-Luc and Benoît, thanks! Clear yellow/golden with a small white head. Aroma of peaches and apricots, fruits and woody notes. Taste is about the same with moderate sourness. Mouthfeel is clean and slightly dry. Absolutely not acetic by The Bruery standard (but still a little bit acetic by normal standard). Quite refreshing and drinkable.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle. Pale gold pour, white head. Aroma of peach/apricot, fruity, woody, distinct oak character. Taste is fruity, light, apricot, sweet with a nice sour bite, not too acetic. The Bruery makes really nice light sours, I wish they’d stop making that over boozy vinegar. This beer was actually quite pleasant and refreshing.

writerljberg (627) - Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle courtesy of womencantsail (I think.) Thanks! Reviewed from notes. A: Clear apricot color. No head and some bubbles randomly shoot upwards. N: Apricots, mandarins, lemon, acetic acid. Has a sharp nuttiness in addition to the grass/straw elements which I attribute to the oak. Some funk. T: Apricot, oranges, and sour lemon zest. Grainy wood. This is definitely souring up to a sharp point while the fruit declines. Not sure that’s a good thing. Acetic and lactic, but not unpleasant. Liked this better when it was fresh on tap. Grass, straw, no barnyard funk. M: Light on the tongue. Think is this the most noteworthy aspect of the beer. Too many heavy sours. O: Recommendable but it’s far better fresh. Will probably re-review when it’s released again.

THE Fruit Sour tasting. Very hazy orange beer, residual white head. Light palate, dry and crisp. Whisper of sulphur on the nose! Sour tart beer! White wine sourness with tart generic fruits. As with many fruits sours I am hard pressed to tell what the fruits are through the sourness. It’s okay.
