Poured a bright hazy orange. At the nose was a light lambic funkiness and the apricots were very subtle. Smells slightly tart with a with something mildly unsanitary - supposedly a dirty sock. The flavors were similer, it was not strong and upfront but very mild and very balance. The apricots are hard to notice. It's mildly sour and sweet with a characteristic funk. Very easily drinkable that doesn't leave your teeth eroded. Definitely a beer a single person can handle. The mouthfeel is light bodied with mild acidity. Overall I expected flavors to be heavy and apricots upfront. It was not the case, instead it was very balance and easily drinkable.

A 2015 version, poured from a tap into a pint glass. Moderately hazy, yellow-amber color with a frothy white head. Aromas, of ripe apricot, white bread, hay, and barnyard funk. The taste followed closely - the fruit was there but restrained. The funk was also restrained and melded well with the sweet flavors. Not much tartness. A dry but layered feel. So happy to enjoy this.

Chased this beer for a long time and finally caught it thanks to a good friend sharing his 2015 vintage with me. It was everything I hoped it would be. Tart and fruity without being obnoxiously acidic with full flavor. Very balanced beer and was definitely worth the chase. Now to acquire my own to let it sit for many years and see how it does.
