A better than average sour. The apricot is apparent more in the taste than the aroma. Light yellow and tart. Sweetness offers nice balance. Tried at Omaha’s Extreme Beerfest in 2017 with Jess and the parents.

22 oz bottle at DCLawyer’s sour tasting. Slightly hazy orange with off-white head. Aromas of candied stone fruit. Tastes of tart stone fruit, tropical fruit. Light body with a dry finish.

Very good sour. Not a heavy sour but very well balance with apricots. Flavor shines thru with a hint of the fruit and an excellent mouth. Soft and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10oz pour- nice hazy dark gold. That rubbery sour smell with small citrusy ending. Lots of sour explodes with that tart citrusy apricot. Great taste not nice nose...

Dogbrick (13147) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2017
On draught at Bob’s Bar during the "Avery Summer Showcase!" event on 06/29/2017. The beer is a cloudy orange color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of apricot, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of tart apricot, funky yeast, oak and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately sour and oaky with a stone fruit aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Tasting at Matt’s, bottled 1/26/17
Hazy golden color. Deep sour and fruity aroma, apricots. Aggressive sourness, some fruit presence, some vinegar, strong but not very elegant.

cmacklin (1211) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2017
On tap. Pours a cloudy orange with a small, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet fruity aroma of apricot, peach and light oak. Sweet fruity flavour of apricot and citrus with light oak in a crisp, dry, tart, acidic finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Very nice.
