BEER INFO

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

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.

Apricot beer, apricot color. Apricot in, apricot out. Cloudy, soft bubbles. Pungent sour tangy juicy apricot sour aroma, you feel your mouth start watering already.

Taste just keeps dropping wave after wave of apricot sour, almost no sweetness, just tons of sour and fruit. Its real simplistic, and for the better. You want a sour punch of apricot in your face, power in both hands, and this one rocks you for it. Clean, no funkiness or distracting aftertaste, its clean and dry, just to repeat more apricot sour like the waves coming in and breaking on the shore over and over.

January 2014 batch. Poured September 2015.

Helluva beer. Loved the apricot jamminess and the tart, mild "sour" was perfect for a warm Fall day.

Great zesty, apricot aroma as well.

L - Light orange color. Big, white frothy head.

S - It definitely smells sour. Jolly rancher and granny smith apple.

T - Taste follows the nose. Really, really tart. Acidic granny smith apple. Sweet tart on steroids. I think I'm missing enamel. That may sound horrible but it's not. Though not great either.

F - I'm not sure. My mouth is still recovering it's feeling.

O - It's really tart. Personally I like a sour with a little more fruit flavor. A little more sweet. This is interesting but not sure I'd seek it out again. Reminds me a lot of Upland Sour Reserve 4.

Filmishmish is incredibly sour - gives Oude Tart a run for its money. Beautiful golden orange color with an aroma that tells you what's coming. Another excellent Bruery sour.

L: deep apricot, Amber. Thin off white head. Lots of tight, tiny bubbles
S: very overripe apricot, some lemony sharpness
T: dried apricots, orange sour patch kids, acidic
F: medium body in the mid palate, with a mouth drying finish
O: very good. Would like a bit more apricot nectar to balance the acidity with some juicy freshness.
