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.

Smells nice and apricoty, but tastes bland.

Really get the apricot pronounced on the finish. Belgian yeast esters for days. Metallic taste really throws this off.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a good fluffy two finger head that faded to leave loads of side lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of Belgian fruity esters galore, clearly a Belgian strong pale, super faint apricot towards the end. Really have to go looking for it.

T - Taste is more Belgian strong pale, fair amount of alcohol and esters, apricot is very back end on the finish. Would be tough to get through the bottle alone.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit over carbonated, some off notes, booze, carbonation grows as it goes.

O - Overall this beer was a mess. Over carbonated, not much apricot, too much Belgian, ugh.

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.
