Other Notes: Batch L19
Brewer Description: (from bottle) A coolshipped and spontaneously fermented beer aged in oak barrel for 16 months and then aged for 12 months on fresh, local apricots. Unblended from a single barrel. This beer represents the singular magic of one night, captured and shaped by, in this bottle. It is meant to reflect the place, people and occasion of its birth. An attempt to capture a true imprint of one day – inimitable and unrepeatable.

Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, batch L19, with a best before date of 1st September 2025. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A nice clear golden colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention, and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, apricot, oak, funk, with a splash of lemon zest.
Taste: Similar to the aroma, tart, apricot, lightly sour, oak, and light funk.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking with good apricot flavours, but stronger funk would make it more interesting.
