Notes/Commercial Description:
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer's already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

750mL bottle into a tulip

Thanks to coreyfmcdonald for sending this one over in a trade.

A: Pours a hazy, pale macaroni and cheese colored orange (remember that Crayola crayon). One fingers width of bright white head builds but then fades away almost instantaneously. Leaves no lacing.

S: Tart lactic acidity, oak, sour citrus like lemon and limes. Sweet apricot is present but is fairly mild. I also get a unique aroma that I can best describe as burnt grass. Quite complex, very nice.

T: Tart lactic acidity upfront, followed by apricot on the finish. Theres an almost salty component. I also get oak, vanilla, and some citrus. Very nice degree of sourness. The more I drink this, the better it gets.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the higher end, drinkability is good. Tart and crisp mouthfeel.

O: Very nice beer. Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Well done.
