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.

Yellow and really hazy. Little carbonation, and 2 fingers of yellow-white head.

Smells of apricots, and its fruity with hints of sour, unripe fruit. Lambic qualities, with dusty cellar and wooden barrels.

Wonderfully sour and dry, Cantillon style all the way. Fruity apricots, but no evident sweetness. Sour lambic funk, acidic lemons, hints of wood and oak from the barrel ageing.

Thick and sour body. moderately low carbonation.

Got at Whole Foods in Santa Rosa, CA a month ago. Drinking in New Hamburg, Oct 13th, 2016. Super good brew. So close to the dry, unsweetened, Brussels classics I love. So glad to have gotten my hands on this one.
