4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Café des Spores. Pours a luminous orange--almost apricot--color with small fluffy head. Aroma is about the best one could imagine for this sort of beer: ripe farmers’ market apricot, lemon, orange marmalade, slight farmhouse Brett character. So juicy and inviting. Taste is apricot jam, sour plum, peaches, light bitter almond, a beautiful mixture of sweet and tart. Long finish. Just so good.

Intense beer. Stron sour body of lambic, with a acid tardiness that tries to burn through your mouth. Smooth gentle taste abricot after that. Some horseblanket and vanilla as well. Real wild beer art from the masters of Cantillon.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand drawn at Backcountry on Sour Sunday. Pours hazy orange with very small white head, settles almost instantly with no lacing. Aroma is tart, funky, musty, barnyard, oaky, apricot, mild vinegar, acidic. Flavor is moderately tart, building slightly, dried apricot, with an oaky, tart, vinegar, mildly vinous finish and lingering oaky, sour apricot aftertaste. Delicious. Minimal carbonation allows flavors to come through. Very soft carbonation, light body, smooth and mildly juicy texture. Interested in comparing bottled version to taste it with more substantial carbonation.

Thanks drowland for snagging a bottle. Pours a milky orange. Apricots abound in the aroma, both sweet and tart. Some oak in the nose. Taste is perfectly tart and sweet apricots. Just a little sour and a hint of acidity. Medium bodied with nice carbonation, a little dryness. Magnificent!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled August 30, 2013. Pours a very cloudy pale yellow color with a bit of off-white head. Aromas of vinegar, tart fruit, stone fruit, light oak. Tasting notes of big vinegar and acidity, big mouth puckering tart and sour fruit, stone fruit including apricots, subtle oak. Maybe just a hint of funk but it’s overshadowed by the tart and sour notes. Medium-light body with a very dry finish. Low carbonation, light and juicy mouthfeel. Goes down like fruit juice. One of the best fruit lambics I’ve had.

Bottle, four years old. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Great funky nose, lots of apricot, and light-scented calf manure. Hazy honey straw color. Mouth-, throat-, and stomach-puckering sourness hits like razor blades. Apricot, rhubarb, and celery. Bitter fruit pits. Small light peppery notes in finish.Thin and astringent. Wow! This is wonderful. Tangy, sharp, and flavor packed. Four years and tastes as fresh as can be.
