Bleh - I just had 4 great sours in a row at the tasting room and then this turd happened. I should have looked at the ratings first I guess. Light brown pour. Slight bourbon nose. Taste is just yuck. Weird and metallic. No apricot that I can find. Cloying finish. Bleh. Bleh. Bleh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Muddy brown, some deep red hues, sediment floats about, thin to moderate frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Aroma is like dried apricots infused with alcohol.   Alcohol at this point is not determined.   Dark bready characters on the tongue, some really old and stale dark pitted fruit, along with that dried alcohol infused apricots.   A bit different for sure.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Warming on the tongue.   Its like a chocolate covered alcohol infused apricot, without much chocolate or sweetness.   Meh... not all that complex, or at least less complex than I imagined.   Thanks Rob!

Deep hazy brown in color... Light tan sedimenty head... Aroma is light apricot, sour funk, Brett on nose, notes of caramel malts... Flavor is caramel malts, apricot, bourbon, vanilla.... Bourbon and booze on the finish.... Warm going down... Not a favorite, but a decent idea.... Respect the effort

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of hamilton23. Cheers, Steve! Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Gushes when opened and even after pouring the head keeps creeping out. Nose is big apricot, some toffee, some light brett, and some wood. Flavor is similar with big apricots, oak, some light brett, and an almost vinous note on the finish. Medium in body, a decent amount of alcohol, and an interesting complexity from the gushing quality, it is almost complimentary, but not quite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ a recent bottle share... Not a highlight for me from the Bruery. Poured brownish/mahogany with a big forming beige head. Drying with fruits and sweetness. Attenuation and carbonation on the higher side here. Hint is oak and booze but thin and light towards the finish.

Bottle. Pours dark caramel with a massive khaki head. I was wondering if it was infected based on the carbonation levels. aroma is massive apricots. Taste is sweet from the fruit and hot. Meh.
