My first Coors beer in 30 years. Bottle courtesy of forgetfu, thanks! Murky golden color, small white head. Aroma of sour summer fruit. Taste is softly sour fruit juice. Nice.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pale golden orange with a nice haze. Plenty of apricot aroma. Strong lactobacillus notes, some grass, oak, and lemon zest. Maybe a little bit of tea. The flavor has a really strong apricot flavor. Nice tartness of lemon, a touch of yogurt, and some grass. Drying oak, tea, and a touch of funk.

Batch 1 bottle thanks to Tom. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong apricot, oak, brett, yeast. Sour as hell, like an apricot warhead. Yes

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apricots, brett and oak. Light-bodied with flavors of funky apricots, brett yeast and oak. The finish is moderately tart with an apricot aftertaste. Pretty good beer overall, and proof that the big breweries can make a decent beer if they want.

Big sourness, aged for a year in my basement. Pretty good and drinkable. Sour with apricot taste secondary. Bright yellow, little head. Thanks Jason B.

"Hazy golden orange ale. Smells of fresh apricots & some funk. Definitely has some bugs in the barrel as well as Brett in the bottle. Flavor is quite tart, with nice interplay between sweet and sour apricot. Good wild ale. Abv could be 5 or 10%...super hard to tell with this kid of beer."
