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-- in you face tartness--- like sucking on a mouth puckering sweet tart the size of a urinal cake!
At first I was overwhelmed and a little off-put, but the more I drank it the more I liked it...
Nose is medicinal funk, like a hospital men's room...
But damn, that sour funkiness, backed up by lemon and apricots-- in the background-- and that sweet tart flavor of my youth are very appealing, especially thanks to a dry finish...
Has to be tried to believe... Unique.
