In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Dry Dock Sour Apricot

Aroma: “Strong apricot nose that’s near perfection, with a touch of pear, apple, and banana. Some tart lemony lactic notes blend nicely with the light malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “Very juicy, with overpowering fruit flavors—mostly apricot, but with moderate banana and pear. Moderate lemon-rind acidic notes are between lactic and malic and are enough to balance the sweetness. There’s a light touch of wheat and very light noble hops note, with mouth-filling carbonation, and a lingering fruity aftertaste.”

Overall: “This is a strongly apricot fruit sour with moderate acidity, big body, and a touch of wheat and malt notes. It’s a great sour if you really like apricot and want a slightly tart beer without significant funk.”
