Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color ale with a medium size head with limited retention. Aroma of tart and sour notes with some oak and light fruity notes. Taste is a mix of tart notes with some oak, some acidic notes with some light funky notes and subtle notes of apricot. Body is about average with OK carbonation. Interesting and complex but lacking some attenuation.

Apricot sours tend to be among the sourest and this is no exception.

Thanks to Sheldon I believe for bringing this to March Madness one of those years. Finally getting around to writing a review for my favorite fruit to use in beer: Apricot, this time, from the Cut, the Casey Cut.

Pours a cloudy apricot colored beer, cork had a nice pop to it, carbonation comes in appropriate, fine 1/3" white head on the top. Aroma smacks of a tiny amount of brett, plenty of apricot. Does good.

Taste, plenty sour, plenty of apricot. Firmly entrenches itself in the second tier of apricot wild/lambic ales. Not gonna bump Fou or Westly. But it can bang amongst the Cascade, Filmishmish, Monk's Veloco-whatever, Map of the Moon/Sun Rare Barrel stuff. Doesn't make sense to go after this one though, 'rare' and all, so much easier to get the comparable stuff. Nice and crisp, light body. Oak is mellow.

750ml cork and caged bottle. Gold Bar and Perfection, bottled 7/26/2016. Served in a wine glass.

Pours a beautiful cloudy golden yellow body, perfect two finger white head with the right amount of lacing, medium film and moderate collar. Looks just about as right as it could ever be. Smell is of rich apricot, oak, light funk, lemon, apricot juice, stonefruit skin. Heavy fruit aromas. Really nice. Flavour is a moderate lactic acidity, fair bit of oak, lots of lemon, tons of stone fruit and apricot juice. Really nice. This I think is more of a true stone fruit wild than Leaner is. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, crisp and dry without being too sour. Plenty of fruit sweetness to balance out the sourness. Overall, one of my new favourites from Casey. Really nice balance of fruity sweetness and tart acidity with a touch of funk, just the way I like it.
