A hazy gold pour under a modest off-white cap with fair to poor retention. Big apricot aromas and flavors with a lemonade level of tartness and a touch of oaky astringency on the finish. Elegant and repeatable.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, blue session. Aroma has unripe apricot with funky and lactic yeast notes. Taste is sour, fruity, dusty and yeasty. Really dry and lactic.

A: Poured into a tulip to a hazy light orange with a small white head that fades to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: Smells of apricots, some funky brett and a little light sourness
T: Taste is a lot of apricot up front wiht some nice funk and a decent smack of lemony sourness. Swallow is more sourness, a little band aid and barnyard with some lingering apricot.
M: The palate on this beer is on the lighter side of things but it is not watery. Carbonation is just below being effervescent and prickly but it is sufficient. The beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some great flavors and some decent complexity. Really nice fruit flavors would make this a really enjoyable summer beer, Worth a try if you can find it.

A- 375ml bottle into a small narrow chalice with a slightly hazy pale golden yellow body. A small white cap takes on a foamy consistency and a tiny ring leaves spotty lace.

S- Acidity off the top with lactic and then a sizeable dose of acetic in your face. The underripe apricot stone fruit presence comes in second and is sort of faint here. Vinegar is strong later on.

T- Instantly notice a whole stone fruit note thay joins the strong (chemically weak) acids presence. Apricots are again sour and pre-ripened and the earthy pit also comes out very well. Apricots and sour with some funk.

MF- A very light body with a bit of an oily slickness. Medium level of carbonation followed the small hiss opening. Ends sour. Texture is foamy and frothy.

Sour acetic and lactic acid are the main flavors with the apricots coming in later complimenting it well.
