3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright hazy golden yellow with a big bubbly head that doesn’t last long, leaving no lacing an a small collar.
Aroma is bright and fruity with the apricots coming through with lots of lactic sourness. Very sour and tart with a hint of brett and more than a hint of oak.
The first sip puckers my mouth with lots of lactic sourness, lemons and some apricots I bathe background. Finish is bone dry and zings the palate with lactic more than brett.
Mouthfeel is dry and lightly carbonated.
This is a very sour beer, certainly more than I was expecting from the Bruery. Not all that complex but a nice sour.

Bottle, 06/25/2012. Pours hazy golden yellow, quickly fading head. Aroma has a tart funky citrus vibe, refreshing, jammy apricot notes that fade more with warmth, some wood in the finish. Taste is tart and tangy, slightly puckering, apricot and citrus coming through, ending dry with residual fruity aftertaste. My favorite sour so far from the Bruery.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow. Nose is lactic tartness, cheese, mild apricot and some barrel. Flavor is lightly to moderately acetic at first them gives way to intense lactic tartness with barrel flavors, various fruits them quickly fades beyond the finish not leaving much sour on the palate. Light carbonation. This is quite drinkable. Could have used a lot more apricot since it pretty much says stuff about apricots all over the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice golden orange color with almost no head. Aroma is of tart peaches, some apple vinegar, lemon and some subtle barnyard funk. The flavor follows the nose, tart peaches, apple vinegar, lemon, subtle barnyard funk like wet hay. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall a nice sour, but not very complex, I much prefer Cantillon Four Foune.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at nbutler11’s bachelor party. Really impressed and surprised by this one. Light orange peel, golden tangerine body with a razor thin ivory head. Extremely tart, incredibly acidic and vinegar-like with huge bright unripened apricots & peaches finding their way to the palate. Floral, fruity, aggressive sour with hints of oak and wood. Mouth-puckeringly delicious!

750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small sized head. Fruity, some funkiness, and citrus. Not too crazy about apricots, but this one was not bad. Nice sour / tart finish.

Smells very pungent and funky. Not astringent at all though. I get no alcohol in the nose. There is a good amount of carbonation for a sour. The apricot is in there but its faint compared to the sour notes. The taste is amazing. Super crisp and clean sour apricot greatness. Wish they would have let us buy more than 2 of these...

Bottle shared by a friend at the 3rd Annual Sour Town tasting on 5/26/12. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Funky and malty nose with some spiciness, sourness and stone fruit. Sour and malty flavor with apricot character and a citrusy sour finish.
