Has a hazy, orange/peach colour. Sharp aroma with some vinegar and apricot syrup. Very smooth and easy to drink for a sour beer. Itís tangy but sugary sweet too giving some balance.

shigadeyo (3078) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Hazy, peach color with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. Not very aroma-iffic, but it does exixhibit some yeasty must, white wine vinegar, vague soft fruits. The flavor is very acidic, tart, and sour, but I donít get much apricot. However, after having a bite of greasy or rich food, the sour cuts through and the apricot is definitely there. The beer is medium light and weíll carbonated. Overall, this is a great beer and I like it, but I just donít have an overly refined palate for sours yet.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 750ml bottle with cap and cork served in a Thumbler glass. Bottle from 20th of August, 2012. A: Pours a light orange color forming a small white fizzy and very bubbled head. Small retention and no lacings formed or left S: Very fruity. Strong notes of apricots and peaches. Lambic yeasts. Metallic. Vinegar. Light notes of malts T: Very fruity. Again, mainly apricots and peaches. Lambic yeasts. Slightly sweet upfront. In overall, a dry and tart taste, however, much lighter acidity if compared with the Lou Pepes, for example. A little bit metallic with light notes of malts. A very light bitterness can be felt in the very end. Quite smooth and pleasant taste M: Light body, good carbonation. Smooth fruity aftertaste. Quite good taste of peach left in the mouth O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent fruit beer. Mandatory to Cantillon fans, independently of the hype around it [ BA Review @ 2/1/2013 ]

Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is Swedish julmust and sweet apricot candies. It has a very nice drieness. Taste is sour, sweet and peppery with lots of apricots. A near to perfect lambic.

Tap tasting at Borefts 2014, Boegraven Netherlands. Light orange color, hazy, white head. Funky aromas, appricot, ornge, with a touch of sweet fruits. Taste is sour, funky and sweet at the absolute correct level, with notes of appricot, orange and hay. Nice aftertaste, long. Light to medium body with medium aftertaste. Great!!!!

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden, with big, but short lasting white head. Quite carbonated for a sour. Aroma is sweet apricot, tart, apples, hint of peach. Taste is upfront sour and tart. As it warms more sweet fruits and clean apricot. Fizzy on the tounge. Long sour finish with some green apples.

langeveld12 (254) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
On tap at Borefts 2014. Not my first choice, but this was an excellent replacement. Sour as hell at the first few sips. Once I got used to it I started tasting the Lambic and a distinct (dried) apricot taste. The latter made it actually a bit sweeter. A very nice beer to drink as a step away from the beers I usually have.

On tap at Borefts Festival 2014. Comes a somewhat hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruit and barnyard. Taste is tart fruit, apricot, barnyard, and wood. Very nice.
