From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickey’s 30th birthday bash on November 05. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a nice darker golden yellow color with a thick white ring of head that vanishes quickly. The aroma is full of apricots and an earthy, woody funk to it. There is a little lacto on it and a decent tartness, but I like it. The flavor has a lot more skin tartness to it. The fruit flesh is there, but it’s much more tart and funky than I was hoping for. The mouth feel is lighter and well carbonated with a lingeringly funky peach flesh on the aftertaste. This is pretty tasty gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2016

August 2015 bottle, shared very generously shared by Nick on 6/10/16. Thanks, man!haukur (1948) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAR 27, 2016
Soft, pale, flaxen gold-apricot body has some very light maize tints and shows good clarity. Off-white head atop is medium-sized and shows moderate to moderately-strong retention.
Ripe, juicy apricots combine with oak to give off a juicy, almost cedary aroma filled with light lactic notes and tons of bright brett. Little bit of acetic character deepens the funk and the finish is full of apricot and oak.
Lightly sweet malts create a solid base as oily oak, apricot juice and light acetic notes definitely provide a huge amount of flavor. Tartness on the end is pleasing and helps clear away the oak and malt, leaving a crisp apricot character. Ultra tight carbonation, as the best JKs always have with good attenuation and still a malty texture. Even after 10 months, this little guy is still an intensely flavorful experience with strong sourness/tartness. These things are made so well and it’s no wonder they usually age wonderfully.
Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma iis heavy apricot, some plums, citrus. Funky on the tongue, tart, acidic but balanced. Nice phaleslu (10104) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016

Notes of apricot, oak, white grapes, lemon, lime, florals, vanilla, and funk. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sour, funky mouthfeel. Very nice apricot sour. ineedbeer (2148) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 8, 2016
