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.

A fun brew with an upfront apricot flavor as the beer then drives onto almost Christmas spice flavors. A reasonable sweetness helps the beer out along with a medium plus mouthfeel.

Not as crisp and bright as I'd prefer my wild ales, but an interesting take on the style.
