4.5/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a slightly hazed golden yellow beer which is topped by a dense and slightly rocky finger of white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing.
S: Smells of a nice amount of sourness with some juicy peach and apricot aromas.
T: Taste is slightly sour up front with some building tart peaches and apricots. Really vibrant and juicy fruit flavor with a pleasant amount of sourness. On the swallow there's lingering tartness along with more peach and apricot flavor.
M: This beer has a moderate amount of heft with a slightly syrupy feel on the palate. Carbonation is on the low end of effervescent but it is adequate for the style while the beer has a drying finish due to the acidity.
O: Overall this is a really nice beer. It's kind of a no frills fruited sour beer but it is executed very well. Really nice and real tasting fruit flavors instead of the artificial flavor you can find in some other beers.

500 mL bottle. Pours cloudy pale orange. Smells of stone fruit and accompanying stone fruit acidity. Tastes of sour apricot. Not so much the peach, here. Sourness hits the nose. Lightly funky yeast notes. A touch of grain. Low carbonation. It's not that sour, but the sourness hits the nose. I need to figure out a better way to describe that. Makes it intense without being overly sour. Each sip is a little too intense for me, but even so, I'm enjoying it well enough. Not something I'd go for again, though.

Mature funkiness meets tart fruitiness here in this more old world take compared to some of their other sours, and it's well made. Walnut- and almond-esque oak work with hay and light blue cheese funk as apricot, peach and green apple bring up the tartness. It features a light spice that's a little biting, but perfectly so with a nice effervescence through the medium body that finishes cleanly semi-dry with a very satisfyingly wild herbal exhale. The appearance is glowing orange-amber with a persistent but thin fluffy white blanket.

It's a bit more sour out of the bottle that it was on draft at the brewery.
