Draft at Redlight. This is WAY too easy to drink. Really nice. Sour and tart. Light body. Not terribly sure what apricot is supposed to smell like, but I liked the way this smells.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2011 Thanks to whoever shared this at the sexual chocolate release. Hazy bright gold pour with thin fizzy off white head. Apricot aroma. Leather, horse blanket, apricot, and mango. Very tart, dry, crisp and refreshing

Beautiful very hazy appearance. Stinks of apricots left out in a puddle. The label is for sure my favourite label ever - a moonscape with an apricot planet rise! Very similar to their Geuze to taste but with some very obvious apricot. Another fantastic intervention from the masters. Oh - this stuff is available at Plonk in Canberra - too great! Thanks guys.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2009
750ml bottle 2007 vintage $22. Beautiful golden color, hazy. It smells like apricot or peach pits, slight bit of hay, really excellent aroma. Taste is sour apricots, peaches, lemon. Very sour but it doesnít get in the way at all, delicious flavor. The apricot aroma is really my favorite part about this beer but overall this is probably the best Cantillon I have had thus far.

dchmela (2822) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Cloudy orange pour with little to no head. Sour vinegar, sour apple, dry tart aroma. Sour apple vinegar dry tart taste. Very mouth puckering sour. While I am not a fan of this style, very well done.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a headless blonde. Aroma is much like Cantillonís gueuze, funky, tart, didnít pick up much hint of the apricots. In flavor, tart, sour, apricot comes through towards the end of the palate, some hints of fruit pits. Dry and puckering. Not as much depth as the gueuze, but excellent.

darkguardian (727) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. HUGE thanks to Brent for getting this what I am guessing was pretty expensive keg. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Nose is sour apples, mangos, peaches and apricots. The flavor profile is very complex. Tart up front with some hay, funk, lemon juice and mouth puckering sour finish with the apricot coming through at the very end. Expertly crafted. This is the most sour Cantillion Iíve had.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Draft at Redlight REdlight. I truly did NOT want to try this as I am NOT a fan of sours. THe pour on this was very nice. Murky peach pink color. The aroma was actually very nice, kind of like sour apples and sweet tarts. The flavor was very tart and tangy. Almost reminded me of fruit spoiling. I am still not a fan, however, this one, if tried regularly, could have probably converted me.

Bottle with da boys. Pours a hazy yellow. Sour and fruity. Hints of vinegar. Berries. Some red currants aromas. Medium body. Hints of black pepper. Dry mellow sour finish.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle seem to be leaking a bit when uncapped. The pour is deep day-old moisty piss yellow with a white bright head. The apricots stands clearly in the nose together with wet straws and something like apple-vinegar. The taste is round and mild combined with some ass kicking sourness if it makes sense. The fruityness is perfectly combined with the sourness. The palate is nice and fizzy with a finish that are very well balanced with a not too sourness together with a buttery sweetness. One of the best cantillons Ive had balanced-wise
