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.

Yorker (1462) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
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.

Cloudy orange with frothy white head. Smell is fruity with just a bit of funk. Taste is quite tart with some nice stone fruit notes. Medium body with very good carbonation making it very easy drinking and refreshing. Definitely one of the best fruit lambics.

Yellow hazy with rich white head. Sweet fryuity aroma. Sour lambic taste with rich fruity taste on background. MIld sourness remains.

Vestergaard (633) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2014
Last bottle at Fermentoren Aarhus. Had this a couple of times under less good circumstances. Pours cloudy yellow-amber with a small white head. Aroma has lots of both acidic and more ripe apricot and some peach as well. Funky yeast, slight vinegar and dry leather. Taste is very bitter and sour up front, but turns more sweet and fruity, and ends off with some more bitterness. Very fruity. Prominent apricots, and reminds me of a Danish skyr-snack with apricots. Sparkling, fresh body. Really a lovely lambic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GlasgowTAD (285) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle at home 2014 vintage. Aroma is barnyard funk, hay. Foamy white head thats quite active on an, unsurprisingly, apricot colour body. Taste is medium sour, medium tart with hints of sweet and apricot on the short finish. Lovely beer and well balanced, not overpowering in any sense.

toxichop (419) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
P: Hazy orange with a thin white head that sticks and never leaves. S: Lots of oak, barnyard smell, loaded with apricots, tropical fruits, floral yeast and a bit of wheat. T: A ton of apricots that coat your entire mouth like freaking apricot syrup, you get that oak, yeast, wheat, some sugar but the apricots just dominate with greek yogurt tartness to finish it all. M: Really light with soft carbonation and light sourness. O: An apricot sour beer with nothing odd, just damn good.
