Notes / Commercial Description:
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer's already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

Hazy golden bronze.

Smells of jammy apricot.

A lot of sour and a rich fruit finish. It's good.

Medium carbonation.

Maybe tone down the sour. This is an older bottle so would like to try fresh. Regardless first rate brew.

Bright golden yellow in color. Hazy in appearance. Sour! Lol. Acetic acid, simple golden sour, apricot, unripe peach. A wisp of a malt backbone. Solid.

Hazy, vibrant light orange color with less than a finger of white head that's pretty quick to dissipate into a thin crown that leaves short-lived sheets of lacing.

Sour aroma with strong apricot and light oak. The taste follows the nose, with a slight creaminess in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied with a touch of creaminess to the feel and solid carbonation.

Delicious and exactly as advertised.

nice hot day. need to crack some mish.

I can't believe I havnt rated this, I can't believe this is only a 92. from everything from the bruery this is their greatest sour, by far.
looks great in the glass. nose is fantastic, like your biting into an apricot, rea nice funk on the nose
taste is stellar, this is the real show. one of the few American wild ales that can capture that mushroom funk drei/cantillon have in their gueze. great funk with that apricot right in center stage.
overall this is THE sour to try if your heckling out the bruery, one one of the few bruery beers I buy up heavy on. it's very under appreciated so do yourself a favor and trade for some if you'd like to taste a real fruited American gueze

this one is very under appreciated and one I'd like to blind test with the big boys

This one is really great. It is very tart, and as a result the stone fruit does tend to get lost in the mix. I really enjoyed it, but I wish I would have gotten more fruit.
