Finally got to rate this beer. B3 from bottle to glass, pours an opaque orange hue, a lot like the juice. Very fruity on the nose. The flavor profile to me is very similar to Fuzzy(I guess I should have an actual peach and apricot side by side to really know the difference), which in the end is why I am rating it the same. Beautiful beer, that I think Side Project has improved over previous batches, as the acidity levels have gone down quite significantly in my opinion.

L: Bold tangerine and dark orange hues with a thin wispy white head that recedes quickly
S: Ripe juicy apricot with a complement of other citrus and stone fruits and slight hay funk
T: Healthy shot of tart grapefruit followed by a burst of muddled peaches; the finish is a robust funky apricot note that lingers
F: Medium bodied with light carb; rich and jammy
O: For a four-year-old bottle of blend #1 this has held up surprisingly well. The carb and head have fallen off slightly, but what's left is a concentrated wild apricot jammy experience. Another incredible fruited sour by one of the best in the game - well done.

Batch 2 bottle poured into a Side Project wine glass.

Pours a super pulpy, bright, glowing orange body with a frothy white head that leaves nice lacing and retention. Beautiful looking beer.

On the nose are heavy, potent apricot aromas, like a freshly sliced apricot. Bright and fresh, grassy, hay, with a sharp acidity and citrus aromas.

Taste mirrors the nose with a sharp but not cloying punch of stone fruit sourness mingled with apricot puree and citrus. Funky and pulpy stone fruits on the follow through. A bit yeasty on the finish. Crisp, medium body with medium-low carbonation.

One of the best stone fruit sours I’ve ever had.
