So I think this is the 7th and final review of a Casey beer from Sour Fest 2019 at Hops & Pie in Denver, CO. Also might be my fave of the bunch, but they were all very good.

Pours a lightly cloudy yellow color with 1/3" white head. Apricot beer smells like apricots, but there is a levity to it here mixed with hay, grass, lemon that indeed reveals itself to truly be a saison (see my other reviews for repeated references to super sour wild ales calling themselves saisons).

Taste and mouthfeel, this one seemed to have the most brett, dry wooden influence, airy apricot, not overly juicy, a lot of stuff working in tandem, teamwork got this one going. Nice and sour but not battery acid like. Its such an easy beer to like and crush. You've had plenty of apricot wild ales and saisons, and while this one does nothing unique, everything it does it does quite well. Excellent even.

And therefore, its just one more reason I don't like Casey. They make all these awesome beers, they aren't on shelves around me, and in the rare occasion I run into them on vacation, they're $20-40 and hard to resist purchasing because the quality is so good.

Poured a cloudy dark, golden yellow with two fingers loosely formed head that settled quickly.
Smells of apricot, tart, slight funk.
Taste follows, fresh apricot leads the way. Also getting light funk and barrel notes. Tart but well balanced.
Light body, low carb levels. Crisp and refreshing.
Overall an excellent fruited saison.

Thin pour but ends cloudy. Smells like lemony, apricot, grassy, funk. Acidic slight pucker, apricot. Casey is tasty.

This one pours a little bit hazy golden orange color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like moderate funky apricot, fruit skin, lemon rind, and grass.

This is simple, but pleasant - with a much less fruit forward taste than most Casey beers I've had. There's a lot of pleasant lemony and grassy funk behind the delicate apricot character. It's crisp and so clean.

This is light bodied, and super drinkable, with a slight tart tickle at the end of each sip.

This is somewhat basic when compared to most amazing offers from Casey, but it's still better than the majority of fruited saisons out there.

So excited when the local bottle shop got this one in. First beer from casey's and did not disappoint. First sip was mild, with apricot, wood and hibiscus, but upon further sips, subtle fruits such as melon, pear, sour green apple, lime, sweet cherry, and lemon started to come to the surface more. Very smooth, drinkable, and crisp. Sour but not overly so, more fruity and juicy. Some slight funk at times, again highlighting delicate complexity. Smell had a sour skittles element up front, with the sugary aspects of the fruit dropping off. Wonderful fruit sour saison
