Shared at my tasting on May 29, 2010. Thanks Chris! Review from notes. This ale appears a hazy light yellow/orange hue. There is a small head that leaves a tiny amount of lacing on the glass. The aromas consist of funky brettanomyces, oak, and slightly sweet fruits (apricot). This beer has plenty of flavor. The wood is very noticeable in both the aroma and the taste. The beer is mostly sour, but does have a subtle sweet note in there as well. This is a really good beer. Its complex and the flavors are well-balanced. Id like to have it again.

Cloudy yellow orange pour with the apricots coming through the nose and a nice tart flavor in there with a wonderful sour bite. Very good.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Pours an orange with thick white head, very little lacing. Aroma is slight funk, cherries and of course apricots. Flavor is tart big apricots, light sweet note, and some tinges of oak flavor. The carbonation is on the high side. Overal, very nice and vibrant fruit beer.

The apricot is quite subtle, more of a general sweet/sour fruit salad of a beer. A little funky. Very nice.

Reynolds314 (3375) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Aroma of rich ripe apricots and fleshy over ripe tropical fruits. Taste is light tart and medium sweet with some white grapes and light vanilla sweetness. World class stuff!

crosamich (433) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2012
2009 from the bottle, Nov2010. This one could serve as a Flanders for aficionados or noobs. bright orange color. Aroma is more funk than fruit, however, neither is too strong. By style, expect more sour and fruit-forward but still a good beer nonetheless. Apricot is in the background here. easy-drinking

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2012
bottle from curly - thanks! 2010 edition. Cloudy, bubbly appearance, with a huge head. Smells, not surprisingly, like apricots. Flavor is apricot, some oak, and a little bit baby aspirin. There is a weird mix of fresh apricot an some artificial flavors. Still, very tasty!

robinvboyer (4308) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
2009 750ml. Hazy orange, small beige head. Big tart aromas of apricots and many tropical fruits. Big funky esters. Carb is a tad high. Sourness and tartness are great, not over the top, just right. Touches of barnyard funk. Great stuff.
