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."

Wow-- in you face tartness--- like sucking on a mouth puckering sweet tart the size of a urinal cake!
At first I was overwhelmed and a little off-put, but the more I drank it the more I liked it...
Nose is medicinal funk, like a hospital men's room...
But damn, that sour funkiness, backed up by lemon and apricots-- in the background-- and that sweet tart flavor of my youth are very appealing, especially thanks to a dry finish...
Has to be tried to believe... Unique.

Well executed stone fruit sour. Huge notes of apricot and lemon on the nose and mouth puckering fruit forward taste, minimal funk, quite acidic and dry finish. Cheers Cascade.
