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."

Reviewed on 6/2/2010. 2009 bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet apricots, peach, sweet tart candies, light funk, lactic acid. Flavor is very sweet and tart (like the candies) with some sour apricot. The sour apricot really comes out in the finish. Overall, very drinkable and tasty, quite tart. Perhaps not as fruity as I would have hoped but one of the better fruity sour ales out there.
