Notes/Commercial Description:
After brewing one of our fruited sour ales, we found ourselves with a few too many leftover apricots in the fridge. Rather than start a smoothie company, we decided to create this unique take on the popular Belgian-style golden ale. The addition of apricots strikes a lovely balance with our fruity house yeast, yielding a delightfully mishmishchieveous ale. Effervescent, delightfully fruity, yet surprisingly dry, this is a great beer for the upcoming, warm Summer months.

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a solid one-inch thick white head which fades to the rim and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Belgian ale yeast, wheat, grassy, lemony, herbal, fruity - but can't pick out the apricots directly.

T: Kinda weird flavors of clashing yeast and fruit. Not sour at all.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry, yeasty, some mild peppery spice.

O: Not what I was expecting at all. Fairly weak fruit and not integrated.

3.9/5  rDev +7.4%

A-Cloudy yellow orange, very carbonated, two finger fluffy head.

S-Grass, wheat, lemon, spice, some apricots, not much funk.

T-Grass, lots of the mischief coming through. Rather like a saison, some lemon very mild apricot.

M-Lighter, well carbonated, crisp finish.

O-Too much of the mischief, not enough apricots or funk. Either more would be better.

Split with rudzud.

Huge fizzy bubbly 2+ finger head fades at a fair pace, decent fluffy lacing, hazy peach orange color.

Nose brings tons of fruit, apricot, canned peaches and canned pear from fruit cocktail, juicy fruit with a mild Belgian blond malt base, esters, little yeast spices, hint of phenolic booze, nice Belgian yeast esters. Unfortunately the fruit fades pretty quickly.

Taste stats with Belgian esters, fruity esters, big phenolic spices and little peppery booze, Belgian yeast mild funk and fruity esters mostly. Light blond malt and hint of sweetness. Over carbonated is distracting, with a weird abrasive fruit skin like feel. Mild apricot and canned peaches in the background that pops up and disappears quickly. Weird bitter tannic flavor on the the back end, and a strange almost fermented creamy flavor. Finish sticky sweet syrupy, more bitter tannins, phenolic booze, esters, and mild bland fruit.

Mouth is med bod, way too much carb, weird abrasive feel.

Overall meh. Started OK but the fruit disappeared way too quickly, and the rest was quite meh.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a good fluffy two finger head that faded to leave loads of side lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of Belgian fruity esters galore, clearly a Belgian strong pale, super faint apricot towards the end. Really have to go looking for it.

T - Taste is more Belgian strong pale, fair amount of alcohol and esters, apricot is very back end on the finish. Would be tough to get through the bottle alone.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit over carbonated, some off notes, booze, carbonation grows as it goes.

O - Overall this beer was a mess. Over carbonated, not much apricot, too much Belgian, ugh.
