***BA Review #1,100, had to save something special for it***
A: Completely hazy bright yellow orange color. No real head. Just a collar of bright white bubbles. Fairly still aside from that.
S: So much delicious apricot on the nose. Wanted to drink immediately for that reason. Really dominates and consumes the funk/sour smells I was expecting. Dry, barnyard, hay. Oak. A little chalkboard.
T: Very impressive. Fresh apricot fruit flavor right away. It helps to mask some of the sour aspects of the lambic, which would probably come up when fruit dies out. You get some prickly tart almost sour notes on the tip of the tongue. Dry finish. Fruit helps makes it above bone dry. Oak tannic character. Complex.
M: Lighter side of medium.

Had a few pours of this at the Jester King Funk'n'Sour Fest.
I can't get over how incredible this beer smells...fresh apricot dominates the nose and you just keep coming back for another whiff!
The apricot flavor is like biting into fresh whole fruit. As with the other fruit sours JK has made, the freshness of the fruit flavor is fantastic.
This is a "next-level" type beer for JK and it's worth trading for if anyone is willing to part with a bottle of batch 1. I'm sure that it will become more plentiful with subsequent batches.

Pours out a hazy golden yellow/orange. Not much white head develops, but sticks around the edge with some soapy bubbles.
The nose on this beer is tremendous bringing a load of apricot with must and grass and faint wood.
The beer delivers a lovely fruity character. The souring aspect accompanies the fruit nicely. Musty funk. Finishes dry.
So delicious it pained me to finish the bottle.
