500mL bottle poured into a tulip
A: Hazy apricot color with a 1-finger head that settles very quickly; alive with lots of carbonation very visible
S: Sour, apricot, lemon, light wheat, oak and vinegar
T: Matches the nose
M: Quite lovely: light, tart, lots of pleasant carbonation and a lengthy finish
O: The acidity literally and finish literally makes this mouthwatering, the refreshing flavors and carbonation add to a refreshing beer that’s a pleasure to enjoy

Murky golden yellow with a white ring. Smell features apricot, peach, orange, and oak with slight funk. Taste is sweeter and juicy, with tons of apricot with citrus and oak supporting, but finishes very abrupt and faint. Feel has some playful acidity and sourness, but really is more juicy and bright if anything. Perfect for a hot summer day

Quite tasty. Looks like cloudy orange juice. Healthy carb, no head or lacing. Can’t get a good read on smell due to a stuffed nose. Excellent subtle sour flavor with plenty of apricot. Reminiscent of a citrusy New England IPA. Medium body, slightly thick, mouth watering, stronger booze presence than the abv would suggest. Super sippable. Excellent beer. Wish I could get a better sense of the smell.

Foggy burnt gold with a fizzy off-white head that dies instantly to a slick surface.

The tart intro almost seems too sour at first, as oaky wine characteristics pop up front. Quickly after, the apricot and lemon express themselves, which swiftly glides into toasty seeds. It all mellows with the effervescence before vanishing into a semi-dry bready exhale. All this happens in a split second, with no lingering flavor at all.

So drinkable for a more complex sour.
