4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Grain and Gristle... Poured hazy, golden orange with a white head. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Nice floral tones, perfume-y apricot with dried yeast, wood, funk, and tartness. LIke a more complex Cascade Apricot Ale. I could drink this stuff all day. Refined, refreshing, a very enjoyable beer.
Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with no real head or lace. Aroma is big on the fruit, lots of stonefruit sweetness. Taste follows with a mild sour back end. Clean and soft sour, like a Belgian style sour almost. Really nice. b3shine (9150) - Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2015
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a cloudy apricot with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; apricot-forward. Tastes Like it smells with a semi-tart medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good stuff! arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big peach, vanilla, apricot into a bit of wood, funk, slight musty, basement notes with a hint of oak, some slight white fruits. Taste was a mix of white grape, oak, wood into a bit of apricot, peach into a bit of lemon, some slight funky, yeasty notes, finishing tart, slightly sweet. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle, thanks Sean. Cloudy amber pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is a mix of barnyard brett and apricot with some oranges and oak too. Taste has so much barnyard that it covers up the citrus and apricot. Very dry as well. Some white grape and oak. Good but I wish the brett was toned back a bit.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, apricot, lemon, lemon peel, and a touch of oak. It’s a hazy dull dark orange with a small white head. The flavor starts with moderate apricot and citrus and apricot. The finish has light-moderate florals, lemon, and orange peel. It’s light bodied moderate carbonation.
Bottle: Bottle 26/149. Thanks, Sean. Completely opaque peach skin color with a foamy, soapy white head that quickly fades to a semi-chunky collar. Aroma of heavy Brett hay, funky musty, woody cotton & some peach-like, stone fruit acidity in the back-end. Flavor of mild peach, apricot, stone fruit, & a touch of lemon with a strong back drop of hay, cotton & Bretty barnyard funk. Drinkable sour ale with a strong brettanomyces presence. Really nice stuff. smallfry (169) - - DEC 13, 2014
(Tap) Sour. Not too bad but I’m not sure it’s balanced enough for me. Sorry. deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A - pours clear amber orange with no head. No real lacing. S - pineapple, bourbon barrel notes, funk, must and stone fruit. M - medium body, dry and sticky sweet. T - apricot and pineapple to start, bready malts and citrus zest. Some chalky talcy notes. Dried apricots dominate. O - a little too sweet for my taste. Wish I tried it fresh. 3.7 bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2013
750ml capped. Hazed orange straw, ample white head. Bright lemony apricot, straw, underlying sweetness, some lacto milkyness going on. Lemony brett, oak, white wine grape, apricot is barely present...mostly unripe in flavor, lacto tart/sweet character. Mostly lemon tart throughout, with some apricot, some milky sweetness toward the end. Nice, even though not overly complex or apricot forward. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Really nice up front apricot with some underneath musty dusty hay and lightly herbal notes. Soft funky notes, a touch of barrel notes as well. Pours hazy orange, thin head and lace. Apricot up front and throughout, herbal notes underneath, a touch of bitterness, a touch funky and dry. Lingering tangy apricot. Nice carovonation. Lingering tangy funky. Solid stuff.
