COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aurelian Lure was made by taking mature, barrel-aged sour beer and refermenting it to dryness in oak barrels with apricots from northern California. Dozens of microorganisms, including wild yeasts native to the Texas Hill Country, transformed the apricots through refermentation to create a beer unique to our land.

Bottle: Light yellow/golden color with a small white head. Nose is zest, tart, and faintly fruity. Pretty sour taste, but it goes along with a great use of fruit. A ripe peach skin flavor that I really like… wait, wait its apricot! Nice balance a use of flavor with the heavy sourness. Like cheesecake, a small pour goes a long way. Badass. Thanks Rich.

Tasted on 1/24/15 from a capped 375mL bottle at Swilliams’ bonfire. Pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white head that leaves very thin lace. The nose is rich, ripe apricot, a touch of rosemary, and light vanilla. The flavor is quite sour, the same nice herbal and rich vanilla ripe apricot note, and very light herbal touch. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long light apricot finish.

Bottle - Apricot, tart and funky. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Lots of tartness, apricot and a nice apricot re surging into the finish.

Leighton (22544) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle shared during the first Late Nite session of RBWG 2015. Pours hazy, pale yellow with a fading white foam head. Nice whispy lemon aroma, light lactic notes. Sharp acidity in the flavor, some peach notes, perhaps apricot, tart lemons. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Cleansing acidity on the finish as well, some cutting lemon juice, a bit of pale dough, melon and peach. Very nice.

Bottle @ RBWG hotel share. Hazy gold with a small head. Nose oils hugely meaty. Unmistakable apricot. Simple but pleasing mellow acidic tartness. Sugar and meaty fruits. Medium body, soft carb. Great.

375ml bottle, tasted at RBWG. Hazy pale yellow color. Thin ring of off-white head. Dots and bits of lace. Wonderful, floral sour aroma. Light citrus. Mild oak. Satisfying sour taste, bigger sour. Light dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Great sour ale. Better than average for Jester King. Nice.

Looks like white grapefruit. No head and plenty of floaties. Smells like lemon and grapefruit. Acidic without being tart. Not bad. Finish is dry and clean.

Blend-2. Enjoyed @ 40F in a snifter split 2 ways @ home. Thanks to my buddy in texas who keeps bringing these sours to me in exchange for VT bottles I have sitting around.



A - This is a light yellow to gold color, fizzy head that faded fast, just a little bit of cloudiness.



S - Pear, apple and a lot of sulphur / rotten egg aroma.



T - Taste is very sour. Pretty intense. Sulphur, apricot at the middle and finish. Very acidic, sour candies, lemon and yeasty finish.



M - Thin mouthfeel, like 7-up or sprite or maybe seltzer water



O - man, these thin very acidic american wild ales are really wearing on me.I need to just drink Lambic pretty much as all I drink. This is just way too tart.

Bottle - Pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose is Turkish apricot, pale malt, and a light tartness. Taste is lemony, dried apricot, tart, and a yeasty finish. Fluffy and soft body.
