Did not know what to expect from the apricots, but this was delish.

Hit of what I'm coming to understand is trademark JK funk, which is to say a little outhouse-y for me, but that settles down over time. On the palate, some light nectary apricot and a robust acidity that causes some throat burn by the end of the glass. A solid sour but nothing worth going out of your way for.

Blend 3 august 2015

Golden burnt orange. White head.

Huge sour and tartness with a big apricot fruit flavor. It has a nice funk and very barnyardy. Definitely tastes like JK funk. Lemon acidity.

A very solid apricot sour. Very enjoyable.
