4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Cantillon in Brussels. Pours light Gold with a White head. Nice delicate apricot aroma backed up by a sour lambic funk. Wonderful apricot flavour with lemony sourness and a bit of woody character. Sour as it was, it acted almost as a rest from the puckering sourness of the other mouth-puckering sours we we were drinking.

Thanks to grownfool for this one! Orange, slightly cloudy, no head. Smells like stone, balsamic vinegar, and apricots. Taste is more fruity than I thought based on the aroma, with apricot, apple, pear and peach coming through. Some stoney flavors mix with balsamic vinegar and dry white wine. Gets a little fruitier as it opens up. Also, not as sour as I was expecting, which works well here. Good stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Monks Cafe in Phila. Bottom third of the keg. Cloudy peach color with a large frothy foam top. Splashes of lace. Very juicy. Wonderful aroma of powdered sugared fruit candy sours. Pink peaches. Apricots. Nectarines. Yellow plums. Watermelon. This is likely a recent batch because it still holds on to a tremendous amount of its original fruitiness. Just enough dusty dryness for balance. Nearly perfect. Should be wonderful aged but is wonderful now!
