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-Cloudy deep orange, some carbonation and a one finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Good bit of oak and funk. Very pleasant apricots.

T-Nice oak, very good funk and then finishes with fruity apricots.

M-Lighter, nice carbonation, dry finish.

O-One of their better sours. The apricots and the sour flavors go well together.
