Reviewing the Imperial Apricot Bu from de Garde Brewing out of Tillamook, Oregon.

Score: 98

2014 vintage bottle served in a Surly Darkness chalice and enjoyed on 01/09/15.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy apricot color with nice fade and tons of floating particulate. Minimal head off the pour, which totally settles. 2/5

Smell: Apricot for days plus some oak. Quite lovely. It's simple, but incredibly appetizing. 5/5

Taste: Tart apricot with a good pucker factor on the mid, which gets more intense as it warms. Notes of lemon too. A little vanilla, oak, and wine character on the finish too. Super lovely mix. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, mild carbonation. Lovely sourness, without a heavy acidic character. Very dry finish. 4.75/5

Overall: Another home run of a fruited Bu Weisse from de Garde! This one rivals the likes of West Ashley and Fou Foune in deliciousness, albeit less complex than either.

Cost: $10 for a 750 ml bottle.

From a bottle, pours a very cloudy pale orange color with a thin wispy head and good carbonation.

The nose is heavy apricots, tart, tropical fruit, a little chalk and candy. The flavor is pretty sour, puckering, dominated by apricots, other tropical fruit, a little grass and some lemon. The finish is clean, fresh fruit, but very tart and makes it difficult to drink alot of this at once. A bit intense tartness wise.

First had this at de garde winter release an was not impressed. Was an older bottle release. Today I had this on tap from the recent release and wow! Much more apricot flavor and aroma. Beautiful beer
