Had this at Dry Dock Brewery. This one has been aged for 3 years! Poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a golden brown, very akin to apple cider. Produced two fingers width of white head. Great lacing, seemed to just cascade down the sides of the glass. Had a mesmerizing glisten to it, almost like a million little diamonds sitting in the sunlight.

S- Apricots galore! Very one dimensional, but very intriguing on the same note. Had a rich apricot scent, with a subtle hint of sourness.

T- This tasted more like flanders and lambic mixed into one. Upfront a ripe apricot flavor was easily discernible. What I really liked was that while rich, the apricot flavor was not very sweet. Mixed in was a little bit of a vinegar type sourness. Finish had a tinge of saltiness in it along with what tasted like a spice of some sort. This was by no means a mouthpuckering sour, but it had just enough of a sour quality to offset the rich apricot flavor.

M- Medium to light bodied with a great carbonated feel.

D- This was so drinkable it wasn't even funny. The flanders quality in this beer really made this one easy to put down. I could have easily had two more glasses and not be bored.

Overall, I was hoping for something more of along the lines of a true lambic. However, this was a really interesting beer. They managed to blur the lines between two styles and come out with something pretty damn drinkable.
