Sour pairs well with apricot. Smells deliciously floral and fruity. Mild carbonation. Taste the different stages of an apricot as if taking a bite out of a ripe apricot, mild, then sour, and full fruit impact at end.

really tasty wild beer here, woody and vinous and really quite a bit more sour than i expected it to be, more sour than i remember from the original unfruited edition for sure, its really acidic, bacterial, sharp, and one glass felt like plenty. the apricot in it is amazing though, natural, ripe, fuzzy and easy to appreciate in aroma and flavor. it also is really light on the grain side, lighter than other wit types most of the time, almost as much pils or something as there is wheat, and less raw too, this is really mild and clean there, so the fruit really pops in this. a good amount of oak, some lemon accent to the apricot, and decidedly not peach or nectarine or anything, its all apricot, thats how pure it is in the taste here. with the name funky wit, i could have handled a little more bretty wild character rather than this overt acidity, its mature and all, and its not without some of that, but its the sourness that dominates for me. a little too aggressive if i am being critical, but the flavors and texture of this are still fantastic. high carbonation is awesome on it, and the dryness seems almost impossible given how much fruit runs all the way through it. delicious. looking to source the others in this series now!

Had on tap. Cloudy orange body with a white cap, very eye catching. Definitely an american take on the style for how sour it is and the oak presence, but the wheat, funk, flowers and fruit lemon esters all make their signature appearance in the aromas amongst the neo sour fruits of apricot, clementine and peach. Taste is more uniform and not unreasonably sour, take all of the sour fruit with a huge oak backing to start then hits with the traditional wit funk, flowers and wheat to create a sour finish with a comparative hardy balance. Feel is oak laden, with sour, funk, wheat and fruit esters textures incorporated. A new world wit

Rating for style, I am going with this being more of a Belgian sour or American Wild Ale than a Witbier.

Quite a bit of yeast sediment in this 22 month old bottle. With a careful pour and minimal sediment, the brew is lemon yellow and appears translucent, although there is no avoiding a fair bit of sediment. Head production and retention are weak, but not poor for the style.

On the nose, displays notes of coriander, orange, apricot, bubblegum, hay, and very light tannins.

Despite the restrained nose, this is a very sour brew on the palate, with loads of tannins, vinegar, tart overripe apricots, oak, orange peel, coriander, and very musty, earthy hay. A great balance between funk, sourness, and tartness that few brews manage, although it could benefit from more representation of the apricot.

Fairly strong puckering from the lacto-like sourness; slick feel.
