4.39/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From 1/25/14 notes. At the brewpub, bottle split 4 ways.

a - Pours a murky bright orange color with one inch of white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of apricots, white wine, oak, earthy notes, light funk, and floral notes. Tons of apricots, very nice.

t - Tastes of sour apricots, sour fruity malts, funk, oak, grass, earthy notes, floral hops. Taste is more sour than the nose. Lots of fruit, awesome taste.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

o - Overall a fantastic beer; second best beer I had from them behind Sunny Side Up. Highly recommend buying a bottle if you ever visit them.
