APRICOT VISTA

BEER STYLE: Berliner Weisse

ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 4.9%

CHARACTERISTICS: Apricot Vista bursts with the bold flavor of tart, juicy apricots. It has a moderate lemony acidity and slightly spicy malt backbone.

The development of Apricot Vista began with a nine-month mixed primary fermentation in a 1936 cypress wood lagering tank.  The brew was then transferred onto 4,700 pounds of apricots and re-fermented for an additional three months, allowing the complex tart flavors of the fruit to marry with the acidity and slight spiciness of the base beer.  The result is a bright golden-orange Berliner Weisse that bursts with juicy apricot flavor and a tart lemon acidity.
