Enjoyed at Tin Man Brewery in Evansville IN on a flash-flood night.

Appears cloudy gold. Light white head in Tin Man snifter.

Nose a little fruity. Not bad. Subtle.

Taste very nice. Light but full of apricot tartness. Easy to drink and very sessionable warm weather brew. I'd compare to a Berliner Weissbier more than a traditional Belgian sour ale, though. Would order this again, for sure.

A- Cloudy orangish-brown, thin white head
S- I am getting more sweet than sour. a bit of salivation from the smell. Faint smell of apricots. Not your traditional SOUR vinegar or funk smell
T- Almost like one of those sour Peach Os. Sweet and sour. Starts really sweet, then move to sour and apricot notes. Proceeds to get sour for just a few seconds then disappears.... strange.
F- Medium body, nice carbonation
O- I think sour traditionalist will be disappointed, but a very approachable sour. Like I said in Taste, reminds me of drinkable Peach O candy.

Poured murky blonde. Opaque. Frothy head that returns to a film that leaves excellent laces.

Not much in the nose in terms of traditional malts/hops but subtle notes of apricot, peach, grain, bubble gum, and bread.

The taste is super sweet. A little too much for my palate. A little sour in there too. Notes of apricot, orange, persimmon, barley, and lime.

Actually fairly smooth, high carb, light body but a lack luster finish from the sweet.

An interesting ale but not in my wheel house due to the high sweetness. The name is mis leading because the sour is very muted by the level of sweet.

Sour up front but not really an apricot man. Just my taste.
