Notes: From the same mixed culture that brought you Lucky Cloud, Rubus Rebus, Boysen Rebus, and Plink. Complex farmhouse notes with pineappley brett and lactic acidity. Big, jammy apricot flavors and even some fruit particles in suspension! Barkeeps, avoid restrictor valves on this one; as with Rubus and Boysen, this is brewed with about 30% fruit puree by volume. Light dry-hopping with Azacca. Brewed at Flagship on Staten Island.

No bottling date. Had this beer as an alternative to champagne, and it was delicious. Lightly tart and fruity, with great carbonation. The look was a little colorless, but much like a champagne. Nice mouthfeel, but not the most intriguing.

Creamy orange juice, no pulp--i.e. opaque and lacking almost any visible carbonation on top.

Smell is apricot, pear, earth, and carrot.

Taste is tart apricot and carrot juice, with an earthy element, and some backing pear.

On-draught @ The Ginger Man NYC. Notes are regrettably brief given the crowded environment.

Aroma is muted, but hints at pureed apricot.

Taste brings the apricot fruit. Tart and acidic, with mellow 5/10 sourness. Lactic acid from the bacteria mingles gorgeously with the sourness and fruit. Balanced if a bit simplistic for a wild ale. Hits all the key flavours, and the mouthfeel is about right though it could be softer and juicier.

Drinkable enjoyable fare from a solid brewery. I'd like to see this offered in cans.

Pours straw yellow from the bottle, brief effervescent head, hazy without any particulate. Nose is sour stone fruit, peach, a bit of tropical aromas; whiff of oak as well. Taste is tart and bright stone fruit (apricot, nectarine), tart but not bracingly so. Crisp and clean mouthfeel.

On tap at The Revelry in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a super hazy orange-ish color, with no head or lacing.

Smells like pure and super juicy apricot, mildly sour- but there's not much going on otherwise.

I love the flavor of apricot, so this ultimately tastes quite good, but as a beer, it's not super complex. The apricot just subsumes everything underneath the beer, and it's not even that sour- it just tastes like mildly tart apricot juice.

This has a super juicy mouthfeel, of course, with a softer level of carbonation.

This technically tasted good, but it has no nuance or complexity to it.
