look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

375ml bottle poured into an Almanac stemmed glass.

The beer pours a hazy golden color, cloudy and fizzy with a light and bubbly white head, about a finger or so high that has poor retention and leaves no lace. The aroma is okay, fruity but minerally, definitely get the pluot, tart and tangy, it's ripe and has some nice citrusy notes but there is a bit of a sulfuric presence that is mildly off putting. The flavors are nice, very mineral heavy at the front, light funkiness and acidity before the fruit character, nice and fleshy, very apricot forward moreso than plummy, but there is some darkness to the fruit at the back where some citrus sourness and light pale grain comes over. The mouthfeel is good, very lively and carbonated that coats the mouth well, nice body to the beer that finishes with some nice sharpness and tangy pucker.

Verdict: A nice fruited sour beer from Almanac. The fruit is certainly showcased well and brings out some nice depth of fruit flavors across a nice spectrum but the sulfuric quality in the nose and heavy mineral flavors aren't my favorite.
