Four Winds Brewing Company out of Delta, BC has teamed up with brewing legends from Commons Brewery in Portland, OR on this Apricot Brett Ale conditioned with apricots from Keremeos, BC. The beer pours from the 750mL bottle a cloudy golden colour with four fingers of off-white head. The beer is very active and wants to foam up a great deal on opening. The Foam dissipates quickly however, leaving half a finger of head remaining and plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is of stone fruits – peach, apricot, and hints of plum – as well as a distinct apple note along with a mild, yeasty funk. In the mouth the beer is initially all tree fruits with pear notes and tart apple. The fruitiness gives way to a slight apple cider taste along with a pronounced minerality, ending with a very dry finish. There is barely any apricot noticeable in the mouth in spite of the beer being conditioned with the fruit, as well as the clear apricot aromas that come off the beer. In spite of this, the beer is delicious and very fruity. As with most beers from Four Winds, this one is sure to sell out quickly so be sure to get your hands on it while you can.
