Notes/Commercial Description:
"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."

2009 750ml bottle thanks to SincereNC. Cloudy orange, almost brown. Smells quite interesting, sour yet not so fruity, not much funk either. The flavor was odd, slightly sour, slightly sweet, almost like a sweet and sour apricot candy but the apricot flavors were very, very subtle to me. At one point I thought it was a sweet pixie stick. I'd be interested to try their other bers but at $22 this would never get a repeat purchase from me. At $15 I could see myself buying this with some regularity. Craft beer prices have gotten a little too out of control these days when they are charging more than Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen for sours.
