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!

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.

Tims bottle, 2008 vintage, that has mellowed out as we shall see. Orange coloured body, understated carbonation. Very malty, subdued acidity. Very good drinkability.

2009 Bottle. Apricot Ale pours well an apricot color. Go figure! Its cloudy and nicely carbonation. A small white head forms but goes bye bye rather quickly. Smell has a nice deep fruitness about it. Apricots definitely take center stage here but I picked up some lemon and pear. Right behind is a good amount of funk and a nice backbone of malt and oak. Smells great. In the taste youre greeted with the nice lactic acidic kick. Not overly sour but enough to wake up my taste buds. Mix in the lovely apricot taste with the oak and funk and you have a nice mixture here. Its sour for sure but I feel like everything balances out the beer perfectly. Just lovely. The almost 9% alcohol was very well hidden. Dangerous! Mouthfeel is medium bodies, dry, and has a good amount of carbonation.

2009 bottling. 9,0% alc/vol. 750ml brown bottle shared with friends. Clear amber with a white head. I really like this peachy nose, apricot candy. Some acidity on the nose. The fuzzy peach taste is very interesting. Easy drinking, light and refreshing. This is a classic to be, way better than the kriek.

(Vintage 2009) Une mousse vanescente sur un liquide la robe cuivre et lgrement voile. Un nez bien construit, la fois souple et percutant. Des parfums dabricot et de fruits tropicaux au profil lgrement suret. Une prsence feutre de notes rustiques. Un souffle charg de douceur. Des saveurs agrables, un rappel de lt dans cette mer de neige. Des fruits du verger et des fruits tropicaux. Des fleurs touches par les microbes. Des notes surettes, lactiques et boises touches par des notes douces. Un rel plaisir. Une bouche de moyenne dimension avec une effervescence juste et une texture lgre. Une finale parfume par les abricots et les fleurs surettes.

Tap at Cascade. Pours to a golden body with a white head. Aroma of sour apricots and tang. The flavor is most definitely earthy apricots with a crisp sour kick. Sweet tangerines. The palate is nicely crisp and sour. Subtle oak.

Bottle, 2009 vintage. Big gusher. Murky amber pour, fluffy white head. Aroma of citrusy brett, mint, flowers, fruit. Taste of sour apricots, tropical fruits. Sour finish, but still quite sweet. A really good sour, too bad a bit was lost to the angels due to the gushing bottle.
