On the Road – Systema Natvrae – Devilwood and Apricot by D9 Brewing Company

OK, apricots and I have an agreement. I don’t like them and they don’t like me. It goes way back to having to climb the apricot tree in the backyard, sorting them out and picking the ripe ones. This applies as well to apricots in beer. But lately, I have begun to notice that apricots in beer are not so bad. So, when I tried decided to try an apricot beer, my inner voice said, “Go for it – this may not be bad!”

Devilwood & Apricot makes a pretty delicious mix

The Systema Natvrae – Devilwood and Apricot by D9 Brewing Company (11138-C Treynorth Drive, Cornelius, NC 28031 Voice: 704-457-9368 Web: info@D9brewing.com) was not only nice but an apricot brew that I would like to drink again. The apricot was soured, so I had an advantage going into to the battle, but the key was the Devilwood which lent a unique and soured taste to the brew. It stayed with the beer as well, so it was not a “one hit wonder”, but rather a really unique flavor that makes you want to have another.
