UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Fresh bottle in 2012 (2011 Project). Unibroue tulip glass. Pours orange with fizzy and quickly receding head. Smell is sour vinegar with a hint of citrus and apricot (as expected). Major sour flavor from beginning to end. Very slight fruit flavor that seems mostly overpowered by the sour vinegar. Perhaps this mellows and highlights the fruit as it ages? Light bodied with high effervescent carbonation. Just was hoping for more fruit. Way overpriced at $20 a bottle for what it is, but a decent beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 2011 vintage. Hazy orange liquid with medium white head. Aroma of lemons, sweat, fruit, apples, earthy/mineraly funk and a bit vinegar. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of lemons and sweat. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice but a bit weird.

Bottle poured into glass. So jazzed to finally see this beer hit our shelves! Super sour and tart. Slight apricot funk in the nose, but mostly citrus. Drinks exceptionally well.

Gold pour. Small white head. Aroma brings lactic and acetic acid and faint apricot notes. Flavor follows the aroma. Lactic sourness followed by a little bit of apricot and lemon. White vinegar drowns out the fruit and lasts on the palate. Light to medium body with ample carbonation. Would be great without the vinegar notes.

reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a hazy orange/honey color with a medium white head. Aroma has oaky and tart notes...some apricot but hidden a bit by the tartness. Flavor is very tart...lemony with some apricot and oak. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is tart, mildly fruity, and dry.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Amazing floral apricot, candy sugar, and caramel aroma with vanilla and oak notes. Creamy very bright and yet lively palate. Tastes of orange, apricot, lemon, caramel, green apple, vanilla, and oak with a tart, lightly acidic, crisp, dry finish. Outstanding.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Tart somewhat brash, fruity but not pungent, little bit of woodiness, apricot is subtle, decently lively, sour tart, decently complex, slightly astringent, medium bodied, big white head, odd retention for a sour, somewhat hazy golden amber...

callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2012
2008. Copper-gold body, quickly receding white head, no lacing. Nose is apricot, boozy, light wheat, must and wood. A bit harsh given the age. Flavor is a bit more refined with smoother notes, but lacks a top tier profile. Medium bodied, mellow carbonation, prickly finish.

4.2
TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
2011. Hazy orange with a clean white head. Lots of citrus aromas, lemon; clean sour; light funk. Apricots hide in the finish, tartness dominates the palate with a biting sour character that sits at the back corners of your tongue. Light body with a mouth-watering finish and medium carbonation. Light but complex sour notes make this a great American sour. Worth seeking out to try, grab a bottle to age.

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle at the BA Buffalo bottle share. Pours golden amber with slight white head. Nose full of Brett and horse hair. Taste is puckering with an ample amount of apricot. Light slick creamy body.
