Map of the Moon - Rare Barrel
Golden Sour - 5.9% abv
2017 vintage

L - trace head atop a translucent yellow body.

S - apricots, oak, sugar, vanilla, salt.

T - massive apricot punch to the face. Very tart. Oak follows, with a small bit of funk. Hints of mushrooms, wheatgrass, and earth. No bitterness. Low sweetness. No booziness.

F - medium-light body with minimal carb.

O - very refreshing, and has complexities from the oak that are beyond my ability to describe.

Bright yellow beer with haze and a fluffy white head. The head fades but stays around the edges. The aroma is like fresh apricot skins with a tiny bit of oak and vanilla. The first sip is brutal. So lip puckering sour but finishes with a really great apricot flavor. This beer shines after the palate adjusts. You can taste all the apricots in the world. The sour accents the fruit. Great beer.
