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.

Cloudy, opaque pale gold colour. No head.

Funky. Big Brett aroma followed by lemon and touches of fruit. Tart.

Tart apricot and hard fruit. Very sour lemony character.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation.

A crazy tart ale. Nice take on the Fou Foune idea. Works well.
