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.

The aroma and taste of this beer set it it apart from any sour I've had. The apricot especially come through in the aroma. First sip is not overly tart, but it gains in strength as the beer sits.
