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.

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.
