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.

750ml into matching Bruery snifter. The brew appears a golden orange with excessive white froth that fills the glass and lasts with a white topping.

Smells fruity like apricot, pear, apple and yeasty belgian phenolics like clove with a hint of wheat.

Tastes yeasty with clove and fruits like apple, pear and apricot. Slight herbal bitterness and grainy finish somewhat bread-like.

Medium in body with excessive carbonation that is way overdone. Tastes like filmishmish but they ran out of fruit.

2014 vintage

L - Pours a nice light copper body with a frothy three finger eggshell head. Good retention and lacing.

S - I'm not picking up much apricot. Lots of belgian yeast, hay/grass and slight tart.

T - Really more saison and lemon forward than i was expecting. Tart apricot is on the finish. A bit of a metallic taste as it warms.

F - Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. The carbonation is a bit much, but what are ya gonna do?

O - A bit of a mess smell and taste wise. It deserves the average score it gets.
