S- Tart, lemon rind, mango
T- Lemon, white wine, strawberry, cherry, orange, wheat, very tart, some residual sweetness, lingering notes of light fruit.

D- Awesome beer that may be my favorite from almanac. Slight sweet fruit flavors complement the intense sourness well. Overall a very complex yet drinkable beer.
Bottle sample at a tasting at Lior’s. Thanks Tom. Batch 2. Clear gold. Slightly funky, bread roll and apricot aroma, very sour taste of unripe apricot and acidic. Full body, acidic finish, no fizz. rayaron (1997) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2017

Taproom draft into a shot-glass showing moderately translucent dark orange with white lacing. Sediments definitely fall out after the aging.
The nose shows subdued apricot.
The palate is moderately carbonated and medium bodied. Drinks like a tart white wine with oak in the background and light apricot on the mid-palate. Very tart. Still has further complexity from aging but will also likely become more tart.

From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a foggy golden amber color with a thicker white head that vanishes pretty quickly. The aroma is lots of tart and funky apricots. This is pretty intense. There is a brighter barnyard funk to it as you inhale a little deeper. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of fleshy apricots to go with a strong tart funkiness and a light barnyard on the finish. I was hoping this would be a little crisper on the flavor. The mouth feel is awesome. It’s light and crisp with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly tart apricot that hangs around for a while. This is a dank good beverage. ebone1988 (2124) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2016
At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is apricot crazy, tart, funk, barnyard. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, clear. Taste is apricot, funk, tart, barnyard, funky as fuck. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, funky tart apricot aftertaste. Overall, this is really good. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Cupertino. I’m not sure how long it has been in my closet. Light amber color. Slight Brett and cherry aroma. High clarity. Very sour. Almanac beers are always too sour. Very peachy aroma and flavor. Actually pretty good, except for being too sour. wlajwl (7068) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2016
Aroma is fruit, funk, slight sweetness and vinegar. The flavor is stone fruit, mild earthiness, a background of sweetness, malts and a tart/funky finish.
