Stone Mission Warehouse Sour - Apricot

Stone Mission Warehouse Sour - Apricot

Sour ale with apricots added

Sour Ale

Our inaugural sour release is brewed with 500 pounds of apricots squeezed into four barrels of beer throughout different stages in the 18-month brewing process. A base brew was soured then blended with barrel-aged barley wine and a highly-hopped, high-ABV, barrel-aged triple, both of which were aged with three strains of Brettanomyces yeast.

Tasting Notes

Flavors will evolve over time, but slowly. This beer is appropriate to drink now, and to cellar for years. Its sourness won’t increase much, but the Brettanomyces complexity will. The nose is heavy with fresh apricot, complex aromas of mild funk typical of sour beer, and structured acidity. You can taste flavors of fresh and preserved apricot, bright acidity with some hints of shaper acidity and funky Brettanomyces flavors that add nuance but don’t overwhelm the beer. The finish on this beer is very long, intended to leave a lasting impression.
