4.06/5  rDev +2.5%

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.

4.31/5  rDev +8.8%

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.

On-tap at 10 Barrel Brewpub

Pour into a shapely snifter, this one is the hue of an apricot soda; light, rust-orange, a little cloudy, and completely headless. If they made an apricot-flavored sour patch kid candy, it would smell just like this. The aroma is quite fruity and only a bit of yeasty funk comes through. On the taste buds, however, the wild sour and apricot sweetness fight for palate-share. This is distinct from a fruit-funk tango in which the flavors compliment and balance each other like a Chinese sweet and sour sauce. Instead, the competing tastes stand at odds, creating something that falls short of a solid fruity farmhouse ale.

Moreover, the sour esters and apricot additions stand strong enough to render the biscuity malts and lightly citric hops not just an afterthought, but nearly unnoticeable. The mouthfeel is somewhat light and just a tiny bit syrupy, with plenty of carbonation. This one is worth trying one time but not two for me. I'll stick with more traditional Saisons and French Bieres de Garde for my sour ale fix.

25cL at Belmont Station

A: Cloudy apricot with a fain head. No legs, as expected.

N: Tart apricot, lemon zest, clementine oragnes, and some raspberry which surprised me. Has the nose of a fruit roll up.

T: Wow. Apricots and a great lactic sourness. There's a grassiness to it which is quite nice. Avoids too much sweetness - excepting that of the fruit. More apricots. Pretty straightforward and brilliant.

M: Light and delicious. About a 7/10 on the sourness level which I really appreciate.

O: A beer that's probably more delicious than it has any right to be. If you see it, order it right quick. Hope 10 Barrel bottles it.
