Served in a big brandy-style snifter at 10 Barrel, Boise ID.

A: Hazy orange with thin head and lace.

S: Big, fresh apricot, sour and tart. Other fruits poke through too, there is a big lemony character, and sugary sweetness underneath that, almost a tart/sour lemon candy.

T: Follows the nose with good complementary sourness and tartness, pretty vibrant fruit notes as well as some flavors of sugary candy.

MF: Thinner body with a tart mouthfeel and a dry finish.

O: Good! Really enjoyed this as far as sours go - I'm definitely more partial to a fruit sour than a straight-up lacto or vinegar bomb. This beer was pleasant and all of the Crush series have been.

On tap at Rose & Crown, Palo Alto, CA

This beer really didn't do anything wrong for the style. But nothing stood out either. Could have been a bit more tart for my preference.

$10 for a 1/2 pint is a friggin joke... Did not factor this fact into my rating. Come to think of it, I should have. I expected more.

On tap at the 10 Barrel Tap Takeover at Bier Thirty.... Pours with a short lasting white head.... the brew is hazed yellow.

Nose is lactic with a strong tart apricot aroma...

Very sour... Liquid sweet tarts... almost sucks the saliva out of my head... the fruit flavor is very fresh... fermented out and only the fruit essence remains with a not quite balanced maltiness that helps bloom the fruit flavors.

Body is light with good carbonation... This is a sipper.... Took me a solid half hour to enjoy my glass.. and I enjoyed every sip.

Maybe a little rough around the edges, but I really liked it.
