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.

wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2015
From notes. Tasted on 10/21/12 from a capped 750mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis for sharing. Pours cloudy pale orange with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is quite sour with some bread malt and plenty of fresh, ripe apricot. The flavor is not as intense as I expected given the nose, but instead a great balance of apricot, citrus sour, bread malt, and light vanilla oak. The body is light with some tannin, light carbonation, and a long sour apricot finish.

ineedbeer (2269) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Poured from a 2014 vintage bottle. Aroma is super fruity with a nice citrus and acidic backbone. Light oak notes with hints of funk and tropical fruit. Overall, a ton of stone fruit. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a large, somewhat thin, light tan head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers. Faint lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with a ton of apricots and some other stone fruit. Nice light mustiness with light oak notes. Low bitterness. Hints of tropical fruit and moderate citrus. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a delicious apricot beer. Lacks some of the funkiness and Brett I would like to see, but lots of apricot character.
