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."

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Beautiful deep blonde color; deep golden orange. Opaque. Rich one finger head when poured; foam laced the surface of the glass and beer the entire time I was drinking the beer. Delicious small; sweet and fruity with a slight sour finish. Taste matched the smell; sweet (but not too sweet) fruity taste with a slightly sour finish. Kind of a sweet and sour effect. Absolutely delicious. Nice medium plus body; smooth with lots of very light carbonation. Overall I found this beer to be outstanding. Definitely one of my favorites of all time. Wanted more!
