look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Light, grassy. Head disappears completely after about 20 seconds.

S: Pluots, apricots, apples.

T: Stone fruit, but it's subdued. The sourness is a tinge overpowering.

F: Medium bodied. Nice sour tang.

O: Very enjoyable and solid sour, which I've come to expect from Alamanc. But it lacks the complexity of their other outstanding sours such as VotHD. I'm planning to age a few bottles and try periodically to see if time tempers the sourness which should allow the pluot fruit to shine.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Apricot

S: That familiar Almanac scent; some vinegar, some lemon, a bit of saison funk.

T: Very fruit forward but dry. The pluot really shines through. Its not particularly sour, closer to a berlinerweisse, but still quite dry and flavorful.

M: Crisp, dry.

O: This grew on me after a couple sips. While I prefer some of their more sour offerings, this is yet another excellent brew from Almanac.
