4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

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.

Bottle shared by Dave. Pours slightly murky but I got the end of the bottle. Aroma is fruity with some barnyard. Light hay and lemon. Taste is similar with some lightly puckering. Overall, very nice balance of fruitiness and sour.
