BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer's already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

Serving Type: Bottle (dated 12.10.15)
Consumed: 3.31.16

A: 4.5 Pours a slightly hazy, yellow-gold. The small, off-white head dissipates rather quickly and doesn’t leave any lace in the glass.

S: 4.5 Aromas are very nice and bring a lot of apricot, honey, flowers, some mild funk, hay, and oak. Lactic tartness, lemon and yogurt start off pretty strong, but back off and give way to the funk as the beer warms.

T: 4.5 Starts off pretty sour with strong lemon, yogurt, and fresh apricots. As the beer warms, more complexity comes through; there’s oak, vanilla, more sweetness, apricot jam, and a slightly grainy finish.

M: 4.5 There’s a creamy mouthfeel with really nice carbonation.

O: 4.5 This is a very good apricot sour; very reminiscent of Map of the Sun or Cascade’s apricot. This is perhaps a bit more complexity than those, but still dominated by lactic tartness.

Once you pop the top the smell of apricot and other fleshly fruit fills the room. Taste follows up on the nose, lot of bite here. So phenomenal, but bringing your tums.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy, cloudy orange with a bright white head, lots of carbonation streaming up the side, no head retention, no lacing, looks like apricot juice, looks good.

A: Apricots, apricot jam, tart, funk, oak from the barrels, picking up some brett like aroma, lots of aromas, fruit, oak, brett, smells pretty good.

T: Hit of sour and tart funkiness up front, touch of oak in the middle, finish is sour and tangy with a touch of apricots, the sour level is moderate but balances well with the oak and the apricots, well done.

M: Light/medium bodied with lots of carbonation, dry finish, sour dry feeling on the palate.

O: Really enjoyed this, nice balance of sour, tart flavors with oak and apricots adding some tang, going to pick up another bottle to cellar and see how this ages, taste awesome fresh.
