Transmitter H3 Apricot Harvest

Posted: January 14, 2016 in American Wild Ale, Reviews, Transmitter Brewing

I picked up this beer in Maine, at The Bier Cellar, despite the fact that they are from Long Island City. It came highly recommended from the salesperson, so I figured it was worth a shot.

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Transmitter Brewing was formed to bring a unique perspective on traditional beer styles to the local NYC beer scene. Through the informed use and interactions of yeast and hops, we hope to add to the conversation about what is craft beer. We invite you to enjoy an ever rotating stock of unique farmhouse style beers crafted with a passion for the process of brewing and for drinking good beer.”

Random: I’ve been toying with the idea of going back to doing themes on the blog for certain weeks, but I lack the planning to do this. When I get home from work, I just grab whatever is in the front of the fridge.

This beer poured with a half finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, light yellow with moderate carbonation. The nose had golden fruit, specifically peach and apricot came out. The taste didn’t have a lot of funk, which I expected. It almost tasted like a dry, but fruity, white wine. It had a lot of golden fruit, specifically golden raisins, fresh peach, white grapes and apricots. The oak was lightly toasted and complemented the fruit well. It had a light body with light carbonation. The finish was long with the same golden fruit and oak. This beer was outstanding. It had a lot of flavor and the dryness complemented that flavor. The bomber was $20.99, which came to $.94 per ounce. It was a pricey beer, but worth the money. If you haven’t had this beer, you definitely need to try it.
