Served chilled from a 22 oz bottle (purchased at Carmine Street Beers) and poured into a snifter. Pours a very hazy golden color with an off-white foam head. Smell is heavy on apricot, with hints of orange, grapefruit and other juices. Carbonation is moderate to high with a medium body. Taste is sweet and zesty. This reminds me of the Super Going Gose from the same brewery, especially with the crispness for a sour that is so hard to do. I get a nice amount of apricot flavor complementing the funk that is characterized by the style. Aftertaste is clean, with lingering apricot and orange juice flavors.
Wow this stuff was good. I am sold that Grimm is making some of the best sour beers in the country. If you ever have the opportunity to buy one of them, please do so. Carmine Street has been carrying a few varieties, and I have seen this exact one on tap at Judy & Punch in Astoria as well as Broadway Dive, Alewife, One Mile House, Torst and more.
