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.

I have gotten so slack about keeping track of who sends me what, but thanks to whatever Secret Santa or trading pal sent me this way. I love you all! Was having a serious sour jones and figured now was the time to dial up this bad boy. Must say that it hit the spot. Nice glemaing orange pour, with a initial gathering of bubbles that’s gone soon. Nice nose of wet oak, vinegar, and tart-as-hell fruit. Nothing distinctively apricot-y in the nose or the taste but the tartness is well appealing enough. Some notes of gueuze and dry white wine in there too, and a long oily, sour finish that is pretty nice.

Bottle forced upon me by blackwhitezinfadel. Not much of any head, hazed , really hazed orange. Smells sour and fruity in a good way, clean, apricoty...impressive actually. I love to take large dumps on the bruery, ones that like run down the sides of the bruery’s face and since I’m a no one and ignored, they tend to dry and get crusty on the bruerys face...this beer is good, and I don’t have to shit right now.

Pours a thin orange with a head that fades quickly. Aromas of apricots, some funk, tartness. Taste is mildly acidic followed by a load of dry fruit. Carbonation is average. Lip smacking finish. Decent.

It pours hazy deep gold with tiny white head. The aroma is tart to vinegar to mildly funky. The taste is a bit watery at first and then moves into tartness, sour citrus notes and vinegar. Well off in the background are faint somewhat vague fruity notes.

750 ml bottle shared by Ted. The pour is a hazed yellow golden ornage, with a smallish off white head. The aroma is light citrus floral, along with light sour vinegar and light funkiness for the yeast. The taste is bright;y citric tart, blackberry, apricot fruit sweet, additional lemon sour, a hint of wheat, and a clean funk yeast finish. The palate is medium bodied, light on the carbonation. Nice beer, thanks for opening this Ted.

Bottle at home with the wife. Poured a golden apricot color with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is fresh apricots, brett, lacto, sour grain, and a touch of oak. Taste is very sour, with flavors of apricots and peaches, light funk and the brett is really in check. Also, picking up sour grain, light wood, and tannin with a heavy, lingering sour aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation and this beer leaves my mouth feeling tingly. I love apricot/peach sours and this one doesn’t disappoint.
