Notes / Commercial Description:
This NW style sour blond ale was barrel aged for up to nine months, then aged on fresh apricot for an additional six months. Aromas of sweet apricot blossoms and tart fruit are present as you draw the glass near. Deep, rich apricot flesh, then tart apricot notes dance on the palate and lead to a sweet apricot flesh finish with a lingering fruit tartness.

Wow, what a beer. Always wanted to try an apricot sour, and this was a great way to do it.

Smells of tartness and a hint of apricot.

Beautiful light orange color.

Taste is heaven. Tart acid, sweet apricot, pilsner malt, sweet to tangy finish.

Loved the mouthfeel due to the solid carbonation to help carry the flavors.

Absolutely world class.
