On tap at O'Brien's Pub on 1/30/16. My tasting notes:

2015 release. Woodsy flavor and dry finish no doubt imparted from the Chardonnay barrels. Lemon-tartness marries pretty nice with the permeating stone-fruit flavors and sweetness. Best of the RR beers in a long tap list of stellar offerings.

Apricot flesh colored, lacing thin but present. Smell is apricot, plum, some funk. Taste is puckering, oak up front and theoughout, pluot is mid-palate, and finishing slightly sweet and crisp. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with tartness level bringing this beer together. Complex and balanced.
