4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

Bottle shared with my lab, put cashed form the brewery a few weeks ago. Some liquid between the cork and cap, which I though was a little odd. Hazy yellow pour with a slight Amber orange tinge to it. Nice nose, fruit and a bit of funk. Sour, but not highly sour. Nice apricot in the taste as well.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sample of both 2013 and 2012 bottles at (Hopp)Kurtkeller 016: Cantillon-tastic 01 on 10/11/2014. Pale orange color with tiny bubbles attached to the glass, and a medium thin foamy white head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruit, yeast and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of apricots, citrus, yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with an apricot and floral yeast aftertaste. Excellent beer all around.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2014 vintage. Less than 3 months old. Pours a hazy glowing orange-gold with small white head. Highly aromatic and fruity nose, there is bright apricots upfront with citrus and the usual Cantillon barnyard funk. Taste is well balanced. Lactic acidity is not too intense per Cantillon standards. Fruitiness is sweet and sour. This one is better fresh from the few expériences I’ve had. Palate is light, carbonation is rather low (only light flaw). This isn’t the most complex lambic, but very few flaws and the nose is amazing.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Pas trop fan des lambics à la base, l’abricot ne fait que rajouter de l’acidité au tout.
