BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States
thebruery.com

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
After brewing one of our fruited sour ales, we found ourselves with a few too many leftover apricots in the fridge. Rather than start a smoothie company, we decided to create this unique take on the popular Belgian-style golden ale. The addition of apricots strikes a lovely balance with our fruity house yeast, yielding a delightfully mishmishchieveous ale. Effervescent, delightfully fruity, yet surprisingly dry, this is a great beer for the upcoming, warm Summer months.

Terrific overall. Wasn't sure what to expect. The nose is over the top dried apricots. Beautiful. I spent a good 30 seconds just smelling this creature. Bone dry, champagne effervescence. Absolutely no residual to speak of. I drank it over the course of an hour. By the end it had this melting softness and juiciness. All-star. Sad-only bottle. Hats off.

Edit: Had again, 2 months later. Apricot has died significantly on the nose. The brett is eating this beer alive. 4 finger head. delicious, but different.

A: poured into a Duvel tulip to a cloudy gold topped by a monsterous dense and rocky white head with excellent retention and lacing
S: smells fruity and slightly sour with some spicy yeast notes as well. slight hints of funk as well
T: Taste is apricots with a slight sourness, fruity esters and spicy yeast with some mild funk. swallow is slight alcohol and medicine with more apricots and yeastyness with a bit more funk
M: this beer is fairly light on the palate with strong carbonation and a semi dry finish
O: Interesting and delicious. It follows the style well and has good flavors. Not sure if I want to lay my other bottle down for awhile or drink it fresh.
