750 mL bottle. Hazy orange. Smells of lots of stone fruit, vanilla and oak, a little band aid. Taste has more band aid. Lots of stone fruit and accompanying acidity. Light grain and white wine flavor. Soft carbonation. Medium light. Just shy of being very good.

Bottle share courtesy of Ditlove. Hazy body, small bubbly head. Tart fruity aroma. More stone fruit in the taste, peaches and apricots . Tart, yes, I used that word again. It is tart.

750ml bottle into snifter.

A: Lightly cloudy golden with a cap of frothy white foam slowly faded into a thin collar leaving sticky sheets of lace down the glass.
S: Bbright nose with notes of apricot dominating mixed with musty and earthy barnyard funk and a touch of peppery spice.
T: Apricot up front and tons of straw and musty barnyard funk. Kiss of peppery spice. Nice Brett finish. Juicy peach note in the aftertaste is like a ripe and juicy peach. Musty and slightly cheesey.
M: Medium body, juicy sweetness, soft and fluffy frothy carb. Drying with a nice balancing sweetness. Creamy and smooth.
O: Bright fruit flavor with awesome peach note separate from the stone fruit flavor. Tons of funk.

Save your money and buy Avery's apricot sour. Tastey brew nonetheless.
