COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer’s already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

I had this at provisions. Clear golden no head,tart,with a nice apricot nose, it was tangy sour.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours unclear thick lemon orange in color with a small white head. There is sediment from a pour only halfway through the bottle! The aroma is apricot jam with some sour yeast, quite nice, not juicy but dry. The flavor starts out with apricot flavor that brings a ton of tartness immediately. The mouth puckers with a beautiful tartness that dominates the flavor. It ends dry and tart as well, but enjoyed with the apricot flavor that is there, but subtle throughout.

Sampled at Bruery Provisions on 2/27/2012. This wild ale pours an orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is apricot, fruit, sweet, tart and some wood. A medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, apricots and tart. Nice bright carbonation. Crisp and clean tart, slightly funky with a hint of wood. Nice apricot flavors, they are omnipresent but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart with some residual sweetness

Bottle courtesy of drabmuh. Served in a snifter. Pours a hazy light apricot color with a very thing white head and a bit of a white collar, though not too impressive on the appearance. The nose brings a pretty good amount of apricot with some lactic sourness and a good bit of wheat in the background. The flavor has some nice lactic sourness and a semi-strong apricot presence. Light body with a good dry, sour finish. Tart and refreshing with a nice wheat presence.

brokensail (16631) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Unfortunately very lowly carbonated, but orange in color with a definite haze to it. Decently funky on the nose. Lots of apricot which gives a touch of sweetness. A bit of oak and maybe some grass, but fairly simple aroma. The flavor has a pleasant tartness of lemon and a solid apricot flavor as well. A hint of fruit sweetness with a moderate oak presence. Again, a touch on the simple side, but I definitely enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Pours radioactive lemon with off white head. Nose is strong - lots of oak, cheese, wild yeast, tart citrus, apricot skins and fresh lemon zest. Taste falls a bit short but is still quite pleasant - a more subtle and softer mix of the aforementioned flavor profile which comes together almost like a lemon-flavored soda. Body on the lighter side of medium.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours a pretty orange color. Quite acidic. Almost sweet tart-esque. Could use a bit more fruit to round it out. Some oakiness deep in the background.

3.3
Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
12 feb 2012, tap at The Bruery. Light orange, faint haze and no bubbles. Nose is sour, some cobwebs, and maybe faint oak hints. Thin body and fairly fizzy. Very dry and effervescent. It doesn’t taste very sour, though there is some sour finish. Can’t say I pick up the apricots. Nice though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with friends. Pours a run of the mill orange with slight head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is bad funk with some super mild jam notes and the lightest of light apricot aroma. (Say goodbye to apricot as that is where it begins and ends.) Taste is lacto sour with some fruit notes but not apricot. This quickly gets lost in the sour with hints of barrel and some more funk but in a better way than the aroma. Overall, this isn’t anything spectacular and I really wish the apricot came out more than in just the aroma .
