Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ccrida on 04-18-2008

This NW style sour blond ale was barrel aged for up to nine months, then aged on fresh apricot for an additional six months. Aromas of sweet apricot blossoms and tart fruit are present as you draw the glass near. Deep, rich apricot flesh, then tart apricot notes dance on the palate and lead to a sweet apricot flesh finish with a lingering fruit tartness.

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.
