Un grand merci à Marc-André Blain pour le partage en cette journée de DrinkItNow! Une robe orangée qui trahit un jus d’abricot frais, serré et parfumé. Une magnifique mousse blanche se forme à la surface de ce liquide impeccable alors que des émanations fruitées, estivales et ensoleillées emplissent la pièce de mon petit appartement mal éclairé du Boulevard Saint-Joseph. Je ferme les yeux et je revis ces nombreux après-midi passés à la Brasserie, où j’ai u le privilège de côtoyer ces levures dans leur alma mater. Dès la première gorgée, des fines bulles explosent dans me bouche apportant une fraîcheur douce et minérale. Puis vient l’abricot. Un assaut fruité dont je suis l’heureuse victime. L’attaque est sans fin. Le funk Cantillon, le noyau de fruit, l’effervescence, la minéralité... C’est l’extase!

Ein Lambic wie es sein sollte. Etwas ungewöhnlich angelegt im Bereich von Aprikosen und Orangen, aber dennoch klassisch in Fruchtigkeit und Säure. Sehr einfach zu trinken, leicht im Essigbereich angesiedelt und wunderbar süffig. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Rask0lnikov (573) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2016
0,75 bottle at Cantillon Brewery. Hazy pale yellow colour. Nice white head. Aroma is clear, juicy, amazing apricot. Acid, barnyard, apricot at the beginning. Wine and apricots. Hints of wood. Powerful apricots in the end. Hints of oakiness with the apricots again in aftertaste. Very well balanced, light bodied, refreshing enjoyment.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle form Rudat in Dortmund. The Lambic has got a hazy light amber -strawy colour with a medium body. Mild to medium carbonation. Aroma of acid, sourness and kernels. Taste of mild vinegar, unripe fruits, acid, mild sourness, unripe apricots, apricot seeds and unripe nuts. Sour finish. Tasty and interesting one.

Garrold (3930) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle at the brewery. 2015. Hazy, dark yellow. Ring of dense, white head. Nose has apricot jam. Earthy, apricot stone. Malt sugars (or is it that because today is a brew day?). Beautifully fruity, with that tart undertone. Taste is lightly tart. Soft, fruity sweetness. Lovely, massaging mouthfeel. Finishes light tart and dry. Lovely.

Belgianloner (38) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
2016 Vintage. AROMA: Marmalade, flowers, wet hay, summer’s end. Wood, honey, apricot. APPEARANCE: Golden, light, medium head, lively. TASTE: Excellent, mild funk, preserved dried apricots, spritzy, puckering, sourish. PALATE: Very dry and light bodied. OVERALL: I can see why it’s all the rage. Not my personal favourite but one I will go for whenever I next he the chance. Best drunk at the brewery top ensure freshness.

Bottle at Pozarevac tasting redux. Special thanks to Johnny in Rome for providing and Alberto for carrying it over. Lovely barnyard sweet funk. Sweet funk, a little bit of waxy chapstick. Funky cheese. So balanced. A really special treat, funky perfection.

nerdboy19 (171) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 16, 2016
This apricot lambic is just fantastic. The apricot character is not bold or strong, however its very soft and delicated. Sourness is strong but not too strong, very satisfying.
