What the brewers say

“Starting with a traditional German malt bill consisting of 50% Pilsen malt and 50% wheat malt, we then kettle sour the wort. A generous apricot addition complements the tartness of the base beer, and the sea salt and coriander add to the complexity.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate fruitiness with strong apricot and light tartness on the nose. Some nice sweetness, but more fruitiness than sweetness. The lactic sits in the back to add complexity.”

Flavor: “Moderately sour up front with apple, pear, and apricot flavors to add a touch of sweetness. Pronounced tartness that outpaces the subtle flavor of the apricot. Not as balanced as it could be, yet the apricot is still plenty evident. The high carbonation makes it light on the tongue and refreshing.”

Overall: “A lot of fruity flavor packed into a light body and high carbonation. Quite a bit of apricot, pear, and light tart lemon. Very fruit-forward with a light salt and sourness to back it up. Apricot is such a delicate flavor to bring out, and although it is there in this beer, it tends to be overwhelmed by the tartness. Finishes light and makes you want another pint.”
