This bottle has been in my cellar a year.
Poured into a teku glass, the body is a clear apricot gold. Smallish head dissipates quickly to a light ring of foam with some spotty lacing.
Nose of oak, apricot, a bit of mint, pale malt, and a slight amount of bretty funkiness.
Tastes crisp and tart, with fresh apricot, vanilla, oak with a light malt foundation. Oak and bretty spice in the long dry finish with a hint of mint. Enjoyable level of lactic acidity and quite vinous.
Body is light and carbonation is just fizzy enough to provide a crisp and cleansing mouthfeel. Has a long dry finish, with a little spiciness.
This is an excellent, very well balanced apricot sour, quite tasty and very drinkable with no off-smells or flavors. It may not be highly complex, but it is definitely a glass of beery apricot deliciousness. Aging a year has not made this too sour, but I will enjoy the remaining bottles sooner than later while the apricot is still there.

4.29/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
750ml bottle shared with a couple of people. Poured into snifters.
A: Hazy golden peach color. A bit fizzy at first but completely flat after those bubbles dissipate.
S: Bits of oak, lemon, apricot, and apple. Lots of lactic acid and a bit of funkiness at the end. Very nice.
T: Flavor is different. Lots of lactic sourness. Some vinegary/vinous notes. Followed by lemon and apricots (these are a bit subtle though). Dry, oaky finish.
M: Light/medium bodied with light carbonation. Works well in this case though. Ends dry and with some puckering sourness. Very pleasant to drink in this hot weather.
O: This is an excellent beer. It was a big time want of mine, glad I got to try it.
