A. Hazy gold with a thin ring of white head. Head, while minimal, is persistent and leaves good lacing.
S. Apricots, lemon, peach, lacto, barnyard funk. Traces of cherry, strawberry, and slightly pungent cheese. Very good.
T. Fleshy apricot, tart peach flesh, dry white wine, hints of bittering hops, yeast. Fruity, dry, and nicely sour.
M. Moderate to high carbonation, good blend of fruit and tart notes...it's never overbearing or hugely puckering. Big dry, white grape finish.
O. An excellent wild ale and another awesome entry into Almanac's Farm to Barrel series. The complexity of flavors on display is quite impressive...absolutely loving the apricots in this. Not as sour as some, but presents a depth and well-roundedness that should be applauded. I really dig this beer and am glad to have tried it.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy light copper body wit a thin white film that is supported by a tight little carbonation. The body is a pretty cloudy and with each sip nice little foam clouds form on the glass.
S- The nice tart fruity aroma has some earthy stone fruit notes and a cherry skin finish with some delicate apricot notes.
T- The full tart slightly dry jammy fruit flavors has some earthy dark cherry skins underneath and a gentle tartness hangs on the tongue after the finish.
M- this beer has a light mouthfeel with no alcohol heat and a gentle astringency prick to the little crisp fizz.
O- The full dept of tartness blends with some more acidic fruit character that is bright and is nicely melded together. Very tasty.

on-tap, Chucks Central District
Hazy peach body - lots of ripe fruit - apricot, peach, cherry, grapes. Vinous and oak notes from the wine barrels compliment everything nicely. Nice tartness, a bit of lemon citrus, dry finish. Good stuff - the best of the latest batch of almanac beers
