This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A Blended Belgian-style beer aged in wine barrels with white peaches and apricots added. Delightfully tart and fruity, complex from the unique mix of wild yeast and helpful bacteria, a beer for sipping.

Opened at the whale insanity tasting.
Definitely one of the highlights of the night, was not expecting just how good this beer would be

A - Light yellow, orange hints with a small white foam head.

S - Smell is all apricots and peaches, very fresh smelling with minimal tart acidity on the nose

T - Taste is all apricots upfront, but not the dryness that you get from other apricot wilds. Very juicy and fresh tasting followed by notes of white peaches. The barrel treatment on this is perfect on this making it very easy to drink

M - Mouthfeel is like, spot on for this style, the acidity is balanced perfectly to allow the fruits to really shine

O - This is definitely one of the best Wilds I have had, in terms of apricots, this is the pinnacle for AWA

This beer honestly puts other American fruited sours to shame.

(i know this will be a vAgue review but...)

An Amazing Cherry Beer(sour).
Fragrant with loads of cherries, great drink-ability, and well balanced/made.
