2014 vintage

A- pours a murky golden-yellow with a rich and creamy white head that seems to retain forever, leaving thick patches of lacing behind that sticks long after the pour, perfect pour

S- pureed apricot mixed with freshly sliced apricot and apricot jam, so amazing. Tart vinegar with some funky wild Belgian yeast to close it out. Perfect aroma

T- dry, tart and funky up front with flavors of fresh apricot preserves, lemon peel, musty earth, tart yeast, dry finish with more fresh apricot on the finish

M- medium creamy and foamy body with low carbonation leads to a tart and bone dry mouthfeel and finish

O- The best nose I've experienced from a lambic, so much apricot that actually gets better as it warms

*Note- I had this side by side with West Ashley & Map of the Sun. This was the clear favorite.
