S – Vinegar, lactic, minor sweetness. 3.75

T – Not too sour or lactic. Some sweetness. Slight fruitiness in the finish, but no clear apricot flavor. A tinch of spice. 3.75

Lovely radiant yellow, like liquid sunshine. The nose is sweet, astringent and a touch funky. The apricots give it a huge citrus sweetness that is nicely balanced with a pithy bitterness. It rounds off to a nice pucker, which makes it totally refreshing. This lives up to the hype.

10 oz. tumbler glass on tap at ChurchKey as feature of Sour Session vol. 9, drank 2 glasses over 30 minutes or so (telling...)

A: 3/3 - misty golden-yellow, initial frothy white head settles into a subtle glass lacing, low clarity (cannot see through), small alcohol legs

S: 11/12 - lots of apricot and barnyard notes, no detectable hops or malts as far as I can detect

T: 19/20 - on first sip, there is a subtle funk that quickly develops into complex fruit flavors - apricot (of course), lemon, ripe pear - admixed with tart, barnyard flavors; as the flavors develop, the malt character arises with a mild bready and wheat character; little detectable alcohol; finishes dry

M: 5/5 - high carbonation (almost Mimosa-like), easily quaffable (as expected for the low alcohol)

T: 10/10 - I had high expectations and this one lived up - a perfect mix of fruit and sour; although expensive, it was totally worth the $14/10 oz. pour

TOTAL - 48/50

I am not a fan of apricots but I am a fan of sour beers and this is one that does not dissapoint. The tart feeling that you get when you sip it and then the tasty fruity flavor that envelops your mouth keeps you coming back for more. My only downfall with this is that I cannot get this all the time. It is a special treat for those beer lovers that know and appreciate a good beer when they taste one. If you ever see this beer on a list somewhere it is definetly worth a try!
