UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Bottle. Very good looking hazy peach appearance with lots of fluffy white foam. Light barnyard smell, many fruits in this aroma hard to spot the apricot precisely. I get apricot, orange, lemon. Acidity is present, but light by the standards. Palate is fizzy up front but there is something flat and sticky about this beer that makes is not quite on par for mouthfeel. Had this beer several times since my initial rating, having each time a mixed bag of experiences. The most recent time was the 2013 vintage bottled at Cantillon and on draft at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, the same day. Very hazy pale gold pour with thin creamy white head. Aroma is so intensely fruity, bright bright apricots, mild Cantillon funk with a sweet fruity flavor, marmelade, apricot jam. Delicious.

Bottle750ml. Sour,nice head, looking for apricot. Not exciting for me but good for someone else. You have to drink it at the end of a party, otherwise you will need time to taste other beers. It is Cantillon!!

Unclear orange of color with a white head. A sour aroma with fruity notes. A flavor of fruits, sour and weak barn.

pours a yellow orange with small white bubbly head. aroma is very sour with lemongrass and apricot coming through. drinks very tart with tons of lemon, hay, apricot, and oak. very puckering and drinks like a very sour lemon aid with apricot added. i think more time on this would meld the fruit and the sour a little more. still very good.

2008. On tap at Capone’s. Pours a cloudy orange color with a frothy white head that clings to the side of the glass desperately. Aroma of apricot, peaches and mandarin orange. Flavor largely of apricot, with a sweet peach and orange ending. Serious funk and tartness. Nice beer.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Hazy nectar pour with a beautiful white frothy head that lingers amazingly. Aroma is explosive with peach and apricot nectar with backnotes of nectarine, mandarin orange, fresh pressed apple cider, and mild funky farm notes. Flavor presents itself in the form of super tart funken nectar-cider with acetic acid and huge peachy apricot notes. It really just makes me want to smile- yes I have a shit eating grin on right now. Tannic oak and musty barnyard present as well, allowing for further proliferation of the nectar oriented notes. Palate is bracing, rude, lacerative, and amazing. Mouthfeel is slippery, full, and billowy with fine bubbled effervescence. I’m blown away again...

I’ve had this about 4 times since, and it just keeps getting better...drink it fresh!

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Murky orange pour, nice 1 finger white frothy head. Aroma is beauteous; holds lots of fruit; apricot, nectarine, orange; smells like the fuzzy skin of a peach. Also notes of funk, and a touch of granny smith apple. Flavor unleashes a full assault of tartness on the tongue. Vinegar, apricot, cider, and acidity run rampant throughout the duration of the flavor. Palate is astoundingly rude; I had to brace myself for each sip, but I reveled in that difficulty. Wondrous lambic, but certainly not for the faint of heart. Rerate 2/7/12 at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont in DC. Bottle from the 2011 batch, so much fresher than my first bottle of this stuff. Much more vibrant fruit character, and so much more balanced. Truly Outstanding.

Apricot in color, with a tiny ring of offwhite head. Aroma is essence of apricot and peach.. A fuzzy peach skin smell if thats even possible. A tad of funk as well in the nose. Flavor is Abrasively tart with peach vinegar. The Rudest Cantillon Ive Ever Had. not incredibley complex but perfects what it does. The peach is fuzzy and not cloyingly sweet with an awe inspiring presence of tart funk. Fuck...Yum..

UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 Bouteille de 750 ml, chez David et Catherine. Merci Denis ! Arômes de lambic avec une touche d’abricots. Robe saumon et trouble, effervescence assez faible et peu de mousse. Très intense en bouche, on retrouve des notes de pommes vertes, les abricots, une touche de blé et la signature caractéristique du lambic. Finale très sûre (lactique et citrique) et très longue. Une très bonne bière, mais tellement sûre qu’elle doit être bue tranquillement et en petites quantités. 3.8 Bouteille de 750 ml, édition 2010, bue lorsque vieille de quelques mois. Incroyables arômes d’abricots frais et de levures sauvages. Le lambic est présent, mais les fruits dominent. Belle robe légèrement rosée et trouble, peu de mousse et effervescence assez active. En bouche, les abricots sont bien présents et très frais. On retrouve également de belles notes citronnées et de paille, ainsi qu’une délicate touche de céréales. Finale très longue, lactique et citrique. La fraîcheur du fruit dans ce lambic est vraiment incroyable! 4.3

Bottle. Poured clear orange golden color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart apricot & yeasty aroma. Medium to full body with tingly sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy funky fruit flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.
