Cork literally pulled apart on exit...kinda strange. Initial pour appearance is excellent. Great clarity with four-finger white foamy/snappy soap voluminous head. Brew is nice peach color with tint of orange and yellow.

Aroma is funky, ripe stringy, lacy, full of peach, apricot, apple, not much tartness on the nose. Well done aroma for being to barnyard and funky.

Flavors are light vinegar, nice light smooth sweetness is well blended with strong earthy pine dry bitterness. Full of horse blanket and barnyard earth... Carbonation is much lighter than expected and much appreciated.

IMO, this is a bit of an over-hyped brew, but it's still very nice and enjoyable. It's a damn fine, highly drinkable, earthy sour, just a bit over hyped... Very solid, I just don't believe it's tops in class, but definitely a top 10-15 brew for it's class. Recommended, yes, even @ $30/750/ml

Served on tap as part of the Anniversary celebration of The Beer Trappe in Lexington, KY.

A: A slightly cloudy, golden apricot. Just seeing it in that tiny little glass gave me joy.

S: Smell of a good, solid, biting sour, with a twinge of apricot. Makes me elicit that 'sour cringe' just thinking about it now.

T: A rock-solid sour bite with a smooth finish that doesn't linger. Very faint apricot, not as much as I remember tasting in a Cascade Apricot Ale.

M: Smooth, with sour attacking the middle/back of the mouth.

O: Definitely one of the best sours I have ever experienced. The buzz of something this rare showing up in a town this far from a major metropolitan area was justified. Very happy to have experienced this even once.
