"Brewmaster Ron Gansberg based this Apricot Ale on a Belgian Tripel, putting it through 16 months lactic fermentation and aging in French oak wine barrels. The apricots were allowed to slowly ripen before introduction into the beer; the beer then aged another four months on the fruit before bottling."

This beer pours a clear honey colored with a one finger off-white head. Nice head retention - certainly more than I had anticipated in a lambic. Nose is drenched in apricot with a bit of a boozy smell, and the sourness definitely comes through. Taste is apricot mixed with a sourness that balances well. Nose would lead you to believe that the taste would be much more sweet. There is a pretty sweet finish to this, but doesn't leve much of an aftertaste. Mouthfeel is reminiscent of wine, but the carbonation in here definitely gives you the beer feel. VERY dry finish, and I liked it for this beer. This is an outstanding fruit beer. Not my style to sit with for an evening - but definitely one that could be enjoyed with friends.
