A huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing.

Hazy, straw yellow body with some yeast evident. Small, broken head. Lovely aroma of lactic funk and citrus. Orange, apricot, melon, assorted stone fruit with tropical notes as well. Juicy and delicious. Gently tart balanced my a natural fruity sweetness. Notes of pineapple, guava. Light in body and dangerously drinkable. Fabulous.

Most recent batch. A big thanks to Josh for this one. Reviewed at a tasting 3/26/15. 750ml bottle into a teku.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with good retention. Beer is a cloudy peach. Lacing is stringy and spotty with good stick. Pretty nice.

Nose is apricot meat, citrus, and Brett funk with a mellow, spritzy tartness that livens the experience.

Opens apricot skin and meat. Juicy and sweet in the middle with a foamy, Brett funk mixed with Apricot tartness. Some apricot skin towards the end and in the aftertaste. Very fruit forward and the tartness is not overwhelming. Great balance with a big apricot presence.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and slick in the mouth and goes down aggressive and foamy. Puckering finish with a filmy aftertaste. Super drinkable and the moderate carbonation perfectly complements the fruit-forward flavor profile.

Overall a really balanced and mellow fruited sour that demonstrates that a clean flavor profile complemented by superior drinkability can really go a long way. Definitely worth trying.

One of the more overrated beers out there. Apricot pit and mild sourness. Get a de garde imperial apricot bu and thank me later.
