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: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Looks like what it used to be; a blonde ale.

S - Wild flowers and apricot.

T - Not much funk due to using soley lactobacillus. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Apricot is fairly subtle. A little more sweetness and fruitiness would enhance this beer.

M - Fizziness is refreshing and beer is suitably substantial to carry its abv.

O - I was a little disappointed with this beer as it's so highly rated. The apricot character did not come through to the extent I'd have liked.

Serving type: on-tap
