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."

Poured this 2013 Project into a small Duvel glass. Not much head but a cap remained throughout. The body was a deep golden, and a little hazy.

The smell was of mild basement must and fruit. The fruitiness was not distinctly apricot and not exactly fresh smelling. Stale fruitiness.

The taste was puckering sour. Some sweet fruitiness and some balsamic vinegar-like character. Bright sourness with just enough sweetness to keep it interesting.

The mouthfeel was zesty and the body was medium.

I wish this one had more fresh fruit flavor and more discernible apricot.
