Notes & Commercial Description:

This NW style sour blond ale was barrel aged for up to nine months, then aged on fresh apricot for an additional six months. Aromas of sweet apricot blossoms and tart fruit are present as you draw the glass near. Deep, rich apricot flesh, then tart apricot notes dance on the palate and lead to a sweet apricot flesh finish with a lingering fruit tartness.

big thanks to kersta and someone else for sending this one to me.

A: Pours a nice light orange hue with a small fizzy white head. No real retention or lace to speak of. Plenty of fizz though with a simple swirl of the glass.

S: Nice light dried apricot aromas. Hints of light vinegar and a touch of sweet tart.

T: Nice mild taste. Real enjoyable on a hot night. Real earthy apricot up front. A blast of acid in the middle. The end has a bit of tart under ripe peach, and some nice fresh oak.

M: Light, zippy, tasty.

D: Good, enjoyed sipping on this one while watching the NASCAR. Who says NASCAR and sour does not mix?

2009 750ml bottle thanks to SincereNC. Cloudy orange, almost brown. Smells quite interesting, sour yet not so fruity, not much funk either. The flavor was odd, slightly sour, slightly sweet, almost like a sweet and sour apricot candy but the apricot flavors were very, very subtle to me. At one point I thought it was a sweet pixie stick. I'd be interested to try their other bers but at $22 this would never get a repeat purchase from me. At $15 I could see myself buying this with some regularity. Craft beer prices have gotten a little too out of control these days when they are charging more than Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen for sours.
