4.43/5 rDev -3.5%

A - The liquid pours a wonderful apricot hue, before sitting thick, glowing and burnished orange in the glass.
S - Scent is sour, like unripe apricot or the tartness of apricot juice. A little funk, but it stays well in the background.
T - The beer washes into the mouth thick and flavoursome. A little watery sweetness comes first; fruity, apricot notes make up the body, with a refreshing, bracing hit of sourness to finish. A wonderfully refreshing beer well-suited to summer-drinking. It's certainly tart but nowhere near as sour as something like an Almanac, allowing the fruit to come through which I really like. It's not overly sweet, in fact I'd actually like it a little sweeter. I also thought the oak barrel aging could have had a more prominent effect as I found this influence pretty difficult to discern.
M - The word nectar springs to mind and I think I'll stick with it. This is thick, smooth and satisfying. Did I mention smooth?
O - Apricot character was definitely stamped all over this beer. You'd expect this to be top notch and it is. Definitely beats out the Fou'Foune I had recently on tap. Having said that I did feel that it lacked wood, and I personally would have like a little more residual sweetness.

A-Cloudy orange, some carbonation, one finger head
S-Holy apricots. Apricots everywhere. The citrus is amazing. Some grass and mild tart notes as well.
T-Amazing apricots. The flavor is spot on. More tart than sour and a slight grass.
M-Medium to lighter, some carbonation.
O-Wow. This was spot on. If it was a tad more sour the beer would have been perfect as this might have been the best apricot beer I've ever had.
