500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. September 2013, Blend One.

Appearance - Pale orange body. A hint of haze. Small white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Apricots are very nice. Slightly acidic smelling. Herbal, which actually really works for this beer.

Taste - The initial apricot flavor is perfect and authentic. Then it proceeds to get sour. And more sour. Until eventually, it's just sour. Citrus sourness.

Mouthfeel - Way too sour for me. It masks the apricots. It masks everything.

Overall - Over soured. Impeccable apricot flavor, though.

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.
