(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a small off-white head. Aroma of apricot, light butter, dough, some wet leather, and horse blanket. Flavor of apricot, dough, some butter, oak, and brett. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On draft at Tap 25. I wanted this to be really good, especially considering the high ratings it got before me, but I just can’t do it. It wasn’t bad per se, but just a bit off. It pours yellow/gold with an off white head. The aroma has some strong apricot, but not enough acid. Mild leather and even milder brett funk. Unfortunately, the barrel influence comes across very buttery. The flavor is about the same. Pleasantly fruity with apricots and very mild tartness with a touch of brett leather and funk. LIght bodied and a bit sweet without a real acidic punch. No acetic acid which is good, but this is very timid. bhensonb (15096) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
