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. 77ships (11051) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 (27/04/2014) Thanks! Sampled bottle @ ZBF 2014. Hazy citrus, only some bubbles on the side. Nose is lots & lots of dried apricots, very fruity and juicy, lovely, slight lactic feel, touch wood. Taste is same, oodles of apricots, slightly lactic, touch apple and wood, citrus, lemon acidic sour in the finish. Very light and easy to drink. Pure apricot goodness. // Early 2015. Sampled side-by-side with Fou’ Foune & Goose Island Halia. Dark orange, big white head. Nose is huge real apricot jam, thick, spectacular. Taste is light yeast, lactic, sour upfront, bread leading into a blast of sweet apricot jam in the back, lingering aftertaste. Easy to drink. Spectacular. Amazing. 4.7 -> 4.9 ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Poured from a 22 OZ bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a light slightly murky orange with a small white head. The aroma is full of apricots and wood. The taste is sour apricots with some oak tossed in. This is an outstanding beer. DConMan (114) - Ballwin, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Poured a 750 ML bottle of this into my 12oz Goose Island Tulip. Thanks for the brew Dan! 2011 Project Vintage.
Aroma- Big fruit and musky sour aroma. Hits with a hint of apricot in the deep background if you search.
Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that has average head retention. Has a deep reddish-orange glowing color. Leaves a few suds behind.
Flavor- Sour huge with a tart fruit flavor. Apricot is in the background again but after each drink, this character becomes more definite.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Sour Apricot flavors from beginning to end and nice pucker at the finish.
Overall Impression- Haven’t done a review in a while so when I popped this one, thought it would be a good one to start back on! Super sour and has a great apricot background. Highly Recommend this one and wouldn’t mind picking up another one of these in the near future! Trade anyone?
