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.

some of these bruery beers that we never really get to see out here in colorado are just wonderful, and surely it is beers like this that has helped build their reputation as one of the best in the country. an awesome fresh apricot nose to this, i can almost smell the fuzz, the texture on the fruit, its insane. hazy blonde in color with a peachy tint and an airy white head that relaxes pretty quickly. the nose is the best feature, the fruit is so forward, so ripe and delicate, the essence of summer really, just so impressive. lots of intense carbonation tickles my nose as i keep on smelling it. alive as heck, with a nice sourness to it, not nearly as intense as some other bruery sours, this is certainly tempered by wood and lots of it, but the sourness comes through the fruit beautifully. the flavor is just a little less dynamic than the smell, where the sour beer overwhelms the fruit just a bit. its still there, but takes on more of a jam than a fresh fruit vibe, and its only an accent to the oaky blonde sour. awesome beer, and close to the level of the best apricot beers in the game, cascades apricot and fou foune from cantillon. this is not quite as distinct and fruit forward, but the interplay of fruit and sourness is as good as it gets. fantastic beer that i wish we could get regularly in colorado.
