UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Have had 2 of these. First was a 2001 bottle, second was a 2009 bottle. The 2001 was still amazingly sour. 2009 had much more apricot and a lot less sour. Both would be categorized as a couple of the best beers I have ever had, but the 2001 was worth it.

Kita (2093) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 22, 2017
2015 bottle, 0.75l, courtesy of Bongtribe, shared with Saska & Tomi. Hazy golden orange color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is yeast, musty, fruity, grainy and woody. Taste starts with refreshing fruity sourness, following is grainy and mild funky, mouthfeel is crisp, while finish is tart. Medium body, thin but creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate.Just superb...

Brightnessinaarhus (27) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 13, 2017
Pours hazy ripe yellow with 1cm carbonation. Really develops over time, aromas of peach, apricot and other stonefruits. Mouthfeel is velvety, finish is long and sweet. This is the 2016 FF, and I also had the 2015, which was way more sour, less fruity, but developed incredibly over the course of an hour.

Very distinct, yet subtle aroma and taste of abricot. Sour, tart and challenging.
