luttonm (4489) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2016
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.

Bomber shared at tasting. Cloudy golden pour. Super fruity aroma. Taste is more acidic and sour. Amazing beer, really love this one!

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.

Sebilinz (1696) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle from 2013. Cloudy golden body with white head. Aroma is fantastic, apricots with nice balanced sourness and hints of malts. Taste is also fruity apricots with malts and some barnyard and sourness. Aftertaste is fruity sour with hints of bitterness. Perfect. This would be the perfect summer beer.

minutemat (4040) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
2015 75cl bottle all to myself on Christmas Day. Pours murky orange with fast receding head. Aroma is musty apricot with prickly wild yeast. Taste is sadly lacking in apricots; they are there, soft and mushy, but the bristly, thorny lambic character takes president with an acidic vinegary finish. I get the sense my eagerness got the better of me and this fresh bottle should’ve been laid for a while to allow those flavours to develop.

Gaultier (1416) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle @ Cantillon 15/5-15. [Vintage 2014]. Very fruity with a lot of apricots, also acidic. Dry, fruity and acidic finish.

GrumpyOldTroll (59) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 A perfect beer. Brilliant yellow/orange color and mild carbonation. When it’s fresh, the fruit is intense, but as the fruit fades, the sourness takes over.

mariuspoenari (1331) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Either this beer is a bit hyped, or the 2015 is weaker than the rest. I expected more apricot in the nose, as well as the taste. It is a well made lambic, no doubt about it, but not much fruit going on.

Een zeer zure smaak, te zuur voor mij. Dus niet lekker voor mij, ook weinig schuimkraag.
