Notes: Collaboration with Side Project Brewing

First came Leaner. Then came Jammy. Now Velvet, our apricot collab with Side Project. Over 5 pounds per gallon Colorado Perfection apricots. We've never used so many apricots in a blend. Last year, we had 4 different apricot blends that never carbonated. I can't explain how much sleep I lost worrying about this beer carbing. But we figured our process out and this. is. good.

Presentation: Draft, served in a Munique glass.

Appearance: There's no head, just a thin ring of foam and almost no lacing. It's a murky, bright gold color.

Smell: There's a lot of fruity apricot and lemon with some floral notes and it finishes with a funky, musty oak and yogurt smell.

Taste: It starts with a big helping of funky yogurt up front and then it transitions to tart and fruity flavors of apricot, blackberries and lemon.

Mouthfeel: It's extremely smooth and creamy with low carbonation .

Overall: An awesome beer in every single aspect. A must try for lovers of sour beer.

Had this at sheltonfest last year. Tart, juicy, and acidic. Probably too sour for my liking, but tons of apricot flavor. A small pour of this was good and I could probably have a glass, but that's it.

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

This smells fairly tart and acidic, with a heavy-duty amount of apricot here- just waves of apricot flesh, and tart apricot juice, with a candied lemon sort of aroma as well.

The taste on this is similarly incredible. It's probably one of the more tart Casey beers I've had- they are generally more subtly sour and tart. Nonethless, the amplified tartness only accentuates the mega amount of apricot that was added here. There's some fruity funk, too, and a touch of bitterness. This is exceptional, and it represents the apex of fruited beer.

This is soft, fruity, and feels light on the palate, with a nice soft level of carbonation. It's really, really drinkable.

This is honestly stunning. Probably the best Casey beer that I've ever had.
