look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
11.2oz brown glass pry-top bottle. Back label stamped "39681."
Appearance: Poured into my Maudite tulip. A hazy light amber hay color. Slight, quickly receding white head.
Nose: Apricots, peaches, kumquats, lime, sour dough, slight minerality. Also, smells like a million bucks!
Palate: Sour! Holy sour, batman! Wow, ok...medium-bodied, light to no carbonation really. Lots of sour peach, sour apricot, kumquats again, with some oxidized nuttiness in the background. There's this toasted hazelnut/caramelized sugar underpinning beneath all this sour citrus fruit. There's enough sweetness to keep the acid from getting out of hand, and the oaking keeps the sourness in check by drying it out a litte.
Notes: Talk about a complex beer! Wow, totally blow away by this one. I love the interplay between the nutty/oxidized sub-notes and the full-on sour apricot body. Highly recommend for fans of sour beers.
Serving type: bottle
