Douberd (3294) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
(Cantillon Fou’ Foune ) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a Cantillon taster, ABV 5% Bright orange colour on a mostly clear body, more cloudy on next pours, big white head, thin and fizzy, collapsing fast, leaving a thin line of foam around the glass. Aroma has plenty of apricots, not very strong aroma but you can find a wide variety of apricots, peel, ripe flesh, unripe too, some floral notes. Nice taste, quite sour, musty, leaves, less apricot than I expected, floral notes. Medium body, good carbonation. Tart on the palate. Nice.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
75cl bottle from 2014. Aroma is is very broad spectrum! Lots and lots of apricot peel and even rotten apricot. Musty, cheesy, ascetic acid with a lemon apricot aftertaste. It’s interesting to smell an almost empty glass, comparee to a freshly poured one. The latter offers a combination of co2, yeast and apricot peel/flesh. Slight pepper adds beautifully to the combination. In the end the apricot hints are isolated, which I find true craftmanship.

zach8270 (3882) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2015
(bottle - 750 ml - 2013 vintage) Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Lightly fruity aroma that instantly goes tart and sour. Flavor is a sour bomb right in your face. Didn’t get any apricot but I didn’t care. Lots of amazing sour flavors.

jc1762 (254) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2015
Poured into a taster glass showing an apricot tan and deep dark yellow with a half a finger of clean white foam. Sweet ripe apricots with heavy notes of brett on the nose. Medium bodied, strong tartness, apricot flavor appears on the beginning & finish with a strong fruit overlay on the tartness and a high carbonation.

Bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours pale yellow with tiny head. Smell has sour lambic notes as well as some sweet fruity notes. Starts very sourish, with lots of brett and some acidic fruit notes. Finish is extremely acidic with notes of apple, apricot and lots of brett!

BlizzardOz (14) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber colour with a clean white head. Superb apricot aroma. Flavour is complex, with the traditional incredibly well-balanced Cantillon tartness competing with the richer sugary apricot flavours. Fine carbonation. Very tasty.

gad905 (199) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from BD ShepBush, drank at home. Pours slightly hazy deep gold, fizzy head rises and dies almost instantly. Nose of luscious juicy apricot stone fruit, big bretty funk, sour cheese, lemony citrus acidity. Tastes almost 100% dry, pretty full-on sourness, more juicy sharp apricots, natural yoghurt, lemony acidity, brett funk, buttery oak. Light body, creamyish mouthfeel, medium prickly carb, super-long sour finish with all the cheesy juicy funky elements all mingled. As expected this is superb.
