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.

750ml cork and caged bottle. Served in a Duck Duck Gooze snifter. Pours a medium orange body, light yellowish straw hue, one finger white head, perfect retention, lots of lacing. Smell is nectarines and stonefruit, peach skin, light yogurty lactic acidity, slight oak, a bit of citrus sweetness. Not too funky, slight pepper. Flavour is a really nice, fruit-forward combination of stonefruit and citrus; light and mild lactic yogurt that provides plenty of sourness to go along with the fruit flavours; it's not too sweet nor is it too dry. Mildly peppery saison-like flavour in the background, touch of zest. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, creamy, nicely carbonated, drinks nearly perfectly as an AWA. Being nearly the same recipe as V015, I am not surprised that I enjoyed this one as much as I did.
