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.
