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.

Poured a 750 ML bottle of this into my 12oz Goose Island Tulip. Thanks for the brew Dan! 2011 Project Vintage.

Aroma- Big fruit and musky sour aroma. Hits with a hint of apricot in the deep background if you search.

Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that has average head retention. Has a deep reddish-orange glowing color. Leaves a few suds behind.

Flavor- Sour huge with a tart fruit flavor. Apricot is in the background again but after each drink, this character becomes more definite.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Sour Apricot flavors from beginning to end and nice pucker at the finish.

Overall Impression- Haven't done a review in a while so when I popped this one, thought it would be a good one to start back on! Super sour and has a great apricot background. Highly Recommend this one and wouldn't mind picking up another one of these in the near future! Trade anyone?
