as much as i keep wishing for crooked stave to do something new recipe wise, instead of just new fruit and new barrels, i always taste the stuff and am positively impressed with the depth and quality, and this latest brew is no different. its a simple base, wheat and pils type malts, really light, but the brett complexion is amazingly nuanced, stinky cheese to wet wood to cut hay, this is a unique bouquet of natural flavors that are all complimented really well by the apricots. the fruit is mild, not jammy and sweet and way up front like it can often be, but much more reserved and in the back, still bringing its ripeness and slight perfumey aromatic to the party. the finish is crisp and dry, with the prickly brett carbonation lasting a note longer than the flavor, which is a neat sensation on the palate. this is better than other fruit versions i have had.

11 oz. pour at the Crooked Stave Taproom on 12/7/14. Straw to golden with minimal head. Grain and apricot aroma. A bit of residual sugar made the apricots stand out. Some malt and a bit of funk come out toward the finish. Very tart and lots of carbonation.
