22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 8/2016. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart apricot, peach, lemon, lime, pineapple, berries, green apple, white grape, light pepper, oak, vanilla, wheat, biscuit, hay, straw, light funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart apricot, peach, lemon, lime, pineapple, berries, green apple, white grape, light pepper, oak, vanilla, wheat, biscuit, hay, straw, light funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/acidic tartness and light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart apricot, peach, lemon, lime, pineapple, berries, green apple, white grape, light pepper, oak, vanilla, wheat, biscuit, hay, straw, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tartness/acidity as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy/acidic, and slightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected for 6%. Overall this is an awesome fruited sour ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, apricots, oak barrel, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced acidity/tartness. Not quite as complex as the Amber Saison Sour, but still very impressive and highly enjoyable.
