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.

Bottle in trade from Doug. Thanks buddy! Pours hazy light tangerine color with a one finger fizzy white head that disappears shortly after pouring. Beautiful sour aroma, huge lacto bite, vinegar, and lots of sweet fruits: plums, apricots, even some berry notes. Beautiful. Flavor is an amazing blend of very sour plums and apricots as expected, lots of lacto and big puckering sour, yet the fruits are sweet and juicy as hell. Some warming vinous notes from the wine barrel that accent the fruits. Lots of prickly carbonation and light to medium bodied. Maybe my new favorite from Almanac. Fantastic. One of the best sours I have ever had. The only thing holding this back from being perfect is a slightly strange wheaty finish, but it is extremely subtle.
