A- Pours a golden/orange color, approaching amber with a soft, light tan head. Large spots of lacing are left on the sides of the glass.
S- Very fresh-smelling. The first thing that hits the nose is fresh, sweet apricots. Notes of peaches and a creamy aroma come through as well. I wasn't able to smell ANYTHING that would suggest that this was going to be sour.
T- Very sour with lactic acid. No other sourness was noted, other than a strong lactic sour flavor. The fruit was far more subtle that I thought it would be, based on the smell. The fresh apricot flavor comes through a little more clearly as the beer warms.
M- Light bodied, effervescent and crisp.
D- A bit of a sipper, considering how sour it is, but overall very good. I think it may have been "sour for the sake of being sour", but I still really enjoyed it.
