fiery1 (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2017
650ml bottle @ Matt’s(Acquired from Elizabeth Station). Pours a hazy amber orange colour with no head. Nose has a huge sour apricot nose. Flavour is tart apricots jam, lacto, a decent sourness, and hints of oak barrels. Tasty stuff.

Ferris (18269) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle - Stonefruit and some sour notes. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Soured stone fruit, a bit hammy and not fresh but decent.

mcberko (20934) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of apricots, oak and a bit of wild yeast. Flavour is very tart and rather acidic, with lots of tart apricots, some lacto and tons of acidity. Very fruity, tart and acidic, with an oaky character on the finish. Very nice stuff.

unclemike (3225) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Hazy yellow to orange appearance with a white head. Aroma of sour funk, stone fruits, light barnyard, light vanilla and a hint of toasted oak. Similar flavor, fruity and sour with a tart, puckering mouth feel. Nicely done.

b3shine (9488) - Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a very cloudy dark apricot with lively carbonation and fizzy off-white head that dissipates into thin lacing fairly quickly. Smells and tastes tart and mildly funky with notes of apricot alongside a bit of oak. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasantly tart and sour. Enjoyable.

rougeau13 (3376) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2017
On tap at Tapology in Corpus Christi. Hazy amber orangish with a small off-white head. Aroma of apricot, hay, and cream. Tastes fruity and nice and tart. Medium bodied and slick.

3.8
Emeister84 (2723) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2017
22oz bottle from Beer Run. Musty aromas, apricot, cheesy, light lemon. Hazy orange with a fully fading white head. Dry, tart, sour, fruity apricot. Medium bodied.

2.9
onceblind (11698) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2017
Hazy tangerine gold with no head, with a bright sour pop of an aroma featuring tart apricots and lemon candy. Big acidic sour flavor that’s apricot-ish and hugely lactic with a lingering sour tone that mellows to a gently fruity finish, but it still gives me heartburn within 3 ounces.

3.7
TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2017
22oz bottle acquired from Binnys Naperville (Naperville, IL). Hey, a new one in this series. Pours a hazy orange amber hue. Lovely bubbles. Frothy ringer white head. Mellow small lager. Aromas tart, apricot, lactic, fuzzy. Initial lighter bodied but still a touch of girth. Potent acidity grows. Mellow oak, fuzzy, a bit bigger on the sourness front. Fuzzy, fruity, a bit brash and heavy handed on sourness at times. Prefer the Raspberry version from this lineup. This one ends up a bit aggressive at times, doable at others.

4.2
thomashall (1656) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Bomber shared. Orange golden pour. Huge apricot oak barrel aroma. Taste is off the charts, very tart apricot but not acidic. This is crazy good.
