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

Imbibed at OG on 7/20/13 for their one year anniversary.

Pours a murky sunshine/ golden barley color with absolutely no head to speak of. Tannins, feet, and allspice/Belgian yeast characteristics come together to give me a confused appearance. Very unique for sure, not sure what to make of it. Apple and yeast presence is big too. Those aromas transfer to the flavor. White grape and vinegar are prevalent with a vinous slight bitterness. Reminds me more of wine than beer, which isn't a bad thing. Feel is watery with a balanced finish.

Good, but not sure if I'd get it again.

Pour is a lightly hazed golden amber with a white head. Nose is lambic esq. Has some dusty cellar brett, and nice notes of nectarine and peach. Taste is less lambic and more fruity. Not sour. Moderate carbonation and a creamy body. Bright peach, nectarine and some grapefruit. There is some dusty brett, gentle acidity, a bit sweet in the flavor.

Bottle: Poured a straw color ale with a nice foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of sour and tart notes with some light funky yeast notes is quite nice. Taste is a great mix between some sour and tart notes with some funky yeast. Apricot notes a very subtle and kind of hard to distinguish. Pinot noir barrel lend a light vinous feel to the beer. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable sour but I would have preferred more apricot notes to be upfront.
