12 oz. can. Poured slightly hazy golden with thin ring of head, scattered lace. Lactic acid, lemon, light apricot notes. Big sour finish. Decent. MetalNHopHead (2068) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Destihl makes some of the best Sour beers in all of the Midwest, and this release of Synchopathic shows that they can dry-hop a Sour just as well as anyone else. Synchothathic Apricot pours hazy gold. Nose has creamy apricot and tropical stone fruit hops. Bright and acidic textures. Flavor starts off with dried apricot and then gives way to damp straw funk and vinegar. I would certainly like to try more releases from this series. milewide (2287) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Nicely sour with a natural apricot flavor. Slightly hazy light golden color. Not much head. onceblind (10113) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Clear golden hue under a thin fading white cap. Bright apricot juicy sour aroma with a touch of lemon pepper. Bracing bright lactic acidity on the flavor that's lemony and vinegar-ish with a big juicy apricot undertone. Only sweet at the end, surrounded by big juicy lactic sourness.

Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 12 oz can. Slight haze to the dark golden pour, light off white head. Aroma has some sour dried apricot notes, a touch of vinegar. Flavor has a solid sour funk to it with some dried apricots, a touch of burnt something, some rhubarb notes. Nice spritz to the mouthfeel.

Just as good as original Synchopathic, only with a bright apricot tanginess adding an extra level of dry salted fruit to the already insanely sour recipe. Extreme levels of lacto bite, with a grainy malt undertone accentuated by a tropical-herbal hoppiness that complements the yeasty, tart fade. Great aroma, yeasty and tart with apricot undertones. Gorgeous pour, a perfect gold with a massive white head and plenty of lace. Sparkly, boisterous texture is spot-on. Lovely beer. superspak (5800) - Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2017
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 8/10/2017. Pours slightly hazy medium golden/yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge tart/sour apricots, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, green apple, fruit skin, citrus zest, white wine, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, pepper, musty funk, slight vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, apricots, citrus/fruity hops, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tart/sour apricots, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, green apple, fruit skin, citrus zest, white wine, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, pepper, musty funk, slight vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic tartness, yeast spiciness, and fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour apricots, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, green apple, fruit skin, citrus zest, white wine, wheat, cracker, hay, straw, grass, pepper, musty funk, slight vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, apricots, citrus/fruity hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/sourness balance, and zero puckering flavors after the finish. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness and fruit tang. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and grainy/acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an outstanding fruited sour ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, apricots, citrus/fruity hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the balanced lactic/tangy/drying finish. Really fantastic balance between the apricots, citrus/fruity hops, and Brett/Lacto complexities; with a nice pale malt backbone to balance the acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

A- Apricot, tart, subtle.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Sour, tart, fruity, salty.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish.
O- Sour and salty. More like a gose than a generic sour. Apricot is there but comes off as general fruitiness instead of simply apricot. Do wish there was more apricot in it. Pretty good sour overall. kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2016
