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.

Had on tap at Bruery and then out of bottle into snifter. Better out of the bottle This just became my favorite Bruery sour. Apricot is the best apricot in a sour ever. Prefer over fou.

A real jewel of a beer. Apricot comes across huge in the nose, but not cloyingly, this is the real deal fruity natural dried California style of apricot that comes across. When this hit my tongue, the apricot exploded with flavor. The sourness really draws out the apricot and the two characters really play off each other. Not to mention the oak, which adds another layer of complexity. I wish I could drink this every day, but I know this is most likely a one off.

Pour is a amber orange, vibrant and unfiltered looking. Light carbonation. Aroma is tart fruit, jammy and fresh cut wood. Taste is a huge sour bomb, drops right into you and punches your taste-buds. Apricots, woody, earthy, fresh flowers, big notes of honey. Long, dry, bitter and sour finish

Bottle shared at dbarnold’s, 10/31/15, Thanks Dave!
This is an excellent beer that I truly enjoyed. Has a great mix of tart, fruity, and sour across the aroma and the taste. Just really nice. Funky and tart, while at the same time extremely refreshing. Really like this a ton, great apricot sour with a ton of flavor and a low enough ABV to be pretty damn drinkable. Felt like the apricot was the perfect fruit in this beer, just excellent. As good as the Home, Sour Home was, I think this was my favorite beer of the evening. Dave - Hook me up if / when this comes out next year!

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: The aroma consists heavy lemon, apricot, light musty notes, and faint funky footy notes. It pours a dull golden-orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet apricot. The finish has heavy sour lemon, sour apricot, and faint mustiness. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. I’m really digging this one.

Big thanks to Randy for cracking this open. Wow! Been wanting to try this for sometime. Nice apricot sour funk to this bad boy. Very tart, one not to be under estimated. Not for the faint of heart or the newbie to the sour scene. Proceed with caution. It’s damn good!!

Bottle thanks to Will/Lee. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong apricot juice and funk. Thin mouthfeel with strong apricot and funk with nice sournes. So good
