This beer is fantastic! Tons of apricot flavor with a very pleasing musty sourness. Light peppery finish. Full bodied and more earthy than fruity. Love these guys and have yet to have even an average beer from them.

Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, yeast, and apricot aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, grain, and apricot flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness and a bit of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an apricot presence that is more earthy than fruity in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Served in a Belgian tulip at La Cumbre's brewery on the day of the tapping, August 6, 2014.

Orange colored and cloudy with a red hue. Almost glowing in appearance. The head is a finger and a half of pale white foam. Settles in a layer of lace over the body.

Smells rather malty, orchard- like fruit and some tartness and sweet. It's grainy and almost granola-like. Hard to detect much else.

Abundant with fruitiness, it truly tastes like apricot, including some of the tartness. A nice balance of of vanilla gives this a kind of peaches and cream deal. Still, there's the earthy saison quality and that flavor like fresh lilies. At the finish, the apricot lingers on my tongue.

Tartness will hit you on this one, but this beer is creamy and thick-bodied. A lot of malt balances out the heaps of apricot. It's got a semi-dry finish and medium carbonation to boot. There's not a hint of booze.

It's tasty. I could enjoy several of these. The nose was a bit of a letdown, but otherwise this beer shines.
