Une des plus acides. Légèrement huileuse. nez abricot et acidité. Le côté lambic de cantillon est relativement mis de côté par les abricots. Des touches de fruits type pêche également.
Trop acide, passez de goût de lambic.

Bottle shared with Richthevillan, cheers Rich for this top beer. Slightly hazy amber beer with large head. Aroma of apricots and some lambic notes. Taste is fruity sherbet, apricots, some cheese, light lambic action and zesty. Palate is a little chalky and a touch of oil. Excellent.

Vintage 2013, vieillit 1 an. Très sour, bien acidulée et le goût de l’abricot est parfaitement équilibré avec les saveurs. Amertume très courte.

Most kindly shared by Oldmanriver and with bartlebier and Bierle. Aromas of ripe apricots, oak and vanilla, mingled with a tender tartness. The taste is even more complex, something so rare. Bringing on an apricot universe, zooming into all stages of an apricot’s beautiful and simple life, from almost still green with this blackthorny sourness via its juicy, sweet and mouthwatering sourish heyday over to the near jam-like overripe stage with tartness being softened by the onset of mildly decomposing spots. Wonderful!

Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Looks marvelous. Aroma was very odd to me. I was expecting some fruit burst with apricot, but it was more like a vinegar and sour beer smell. Taste was almost dead on to me for a standard sour. I got some hay, barnyard funk, and tartness to it. I’m not sure if I was just expecting more, or my tastes are off, or I drank a bad one. Not bad, and sours don’t bother me, but I was thinking this would be 100% different. Light body and well carbed.

Draught at Borefts. Considering the way the kegs are being butchered at the bar, it looks good - clear, pale, slight head. Aroma of peach skins and old-school homemade lemonade, and a bit of the farmyard. Flavour is lemon juice cut with effervescent peach, fizzes off the palate into long, sour and dry finish. A wonderful beer, classic lambic imbued with the essence of peach.

Corked 75 cl bottle @ home (2014 vintage). Pours hazy yellow with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are lemons, apricots, lactose, and a little funk - with a slightly dry finish.

On tap at Capone’s 2014 Black Friday. Pours a completely cloudy orangey yellow without a head. Aromas of apricots, sour lacto aroma, slight farm funk. Taste is at the upper end of sour for a drinkable beer. Medium light body and medium light carb. Really enjoyable. One of my favorite Cantillon beers althought it was a tad bit overly sour.
