bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Wonderful apricot smell. Not too overpowering just perfect. Beautiful sour base, then wonderful apricot flavors. Not stale apricot but very ripe apricots. Great use of the natural fermentation almost cask like.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Je pourrais passer le reste de la soirée à respirer ce que ce liquide m’offre, le goût ne décoit pas mais le nez...LE NEZ! La chair folle est vraiment plus puissante en arome mais en bouche le noyau émerge et percute mes papilles sans relache....LE NEZ!

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
what a brew...I opened it a week after I bought it so its really fresh. The pour is a murky, muddy orange with a shimmering head that fills the glass like a fine champagne. The nose is musty and farmhouse noted with big juicy apricot notes as well as a generally heavy acetic undertone. Big musty and dusty barrel notes with solid acetic and sour notes in the late middle blend well with soft sweetness and fruit flavour. Quite acidic and sour overall but put in balance by the fruit sweetness. overall, one of the best beers to touch my lips.

UXO (147) - CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw orange with an enthusiastic fizzy white champagne head diminishing rapidly to a thin white cap and no lacing. Nose is initially barnyard and sour apple cider, but lemon, stone fruit - yes, apricot - and a little vinous oak come through as it warms. Taste is juicy stone fruit just sweet enough to balance out the malt vinegar sourness. Mouth feel is light with sustained carbonation, with a lingering dry puckered finish. This is an extremely well-done fruit lambic. The flavours are integrated, with none of the artificial cough syrup characteristic sometimes found in other lambics or krieks. Very even-tempered and extremely drinkable. If it weren’t for the price, I’d call this a well-nigh perfect beer.

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Light apricots smell, again the typical cantillon nose is coming through and hits you - clong - on your head. Orange body with a foamy head. Fizzy carbonation. Sour - of course, apricot. Nice dry wine like, spritzy too.i think it this is my favourite Cantillon.

manker (44) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
One of my favorite Cantillons. Hay and lemons leads you on to a track and field race with lovely apricots and other stone fruits. Right amount of sourness to keep the apricots on the centre stage and still be on top of the fruit sweetness.

mmahut (909) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 12, 2014
Hazy orange body with medium creamy head. Aroma is pretty sweet on the nose and has pear, apricot, peach. Taste has apricot sweetness, short lasting sour after taste, dry. Body is full, medium to high carbonation.

Whatup14 (684) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur dorée trouble, mousse blanche pétillante et fugace laissant une dentelle évanescente. Arôme de brett, abricot, fruité, un brin floral, vineux. Goût de peau d’abricot, chair d’abricot, levures sauvages, cuir, bonne acidité, légère astringence. Carbonatation élevée, corps moyen.
