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, what a beer. Always wanted to try an apricot sour, and this was a great way to do it.

Smells of tartness and a hint of apricot.

Beautiful light orange color.

Taste is heaven. Tart acid, sweet apricot, pilsner malt, sweet to tangy finish.

Loved the mouthfeel due to the solid carbonation to help carry the flavors.

Absolutely world class.
