16 ounce Prowler bought at Liquor Shed in Casper. Colour of the beer is like the fruit, small head of foam that dissipates quickly, no lacing. Sour apricot smell with some oak notes that imply wood. Got my attention. Yep, woody barrel notes to go with the tasty sour apricot flavour. For a sour fruit specific wild ale, this nails it. Barely creeps into medium bodied, fairly light level of carbonation, Avery did, imho, a fine job with this fruity sour. As they usually do. Tip of the hat.

22 oz bottle poured. A golden orange pour, cloudy. Very tart presentation up front with aroma and flavor. Distinct apricot at first, fruity, juicy, and barely sweet. Then the sour rolls in strong. Big pucker, but the flavor underneath is on point. Tasty, juicy sour here.

Presentation of beer to be sold at the Norwegian Vinmonopolet. 20.sep. 2017. Bottle. Hazy orange. Small white head. Fruity aroma and taste of apricot, lemon and wild yeast. Not very complex but very refreshing. Lot of acidic fruit and lacto. Lovely beer.
