TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
25.4 oz bottle. Bottled in 2.004. Foggy gold with a touch of white froth. Some sediment in the bottom. Sour lemon and yeast with emergent apricot. Unfolds just beautifully. Taste is more sour than nose. Initially tart lemon with hints of pineapple. Apricot remains. Fruitier as it warms. Faint carb, medium light. Finishes with a pleasant pucker and woody peach pits.

toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - MAY 22, 2007
750 ml. thanks to padrefan, Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of everything sour, lemons, apricots, and grapefruit. Flavors of the same. No really my style.

fordest (1994) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2007
750 ml bottle shared with Padrefan. Lots of sour apricot aromas. More apricot in the flavor. I usually don’t think of apricot as a sour flavor, but it went nicely. Very very good.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
750 ml bottle from O’briens. Very nice mirky orangish golden color with a huge white frothy head. Very tart, sour, and very dry mouth feel. Very little sweetness. Very good lambic.

beerbill (3411) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours a weird cloudy straw/orange/gold with virtually no head. Pungent sour aroma along with some yeast. The flavor reminds me very much of biting into a lemon. Totally sour which completely dominates the flavor of this beverage. There were some grassy flavors in there as well. If there’s anything else going on with this beer, I can’t detect it because it is being overrun by the sour flavor. Thin, unappealing mouthfeel.

ABUSEDGOAT (2393) - California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Got over a $10 discount because the guy at the register couldn’t find this one in the system. Kick ass. Hazy orange with a small head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is dominated by tart lemons and has notes of barnyard action, lighter fruits, more acidity and a light malty sweetness. Medium to light body, enjoyable but not great... like most of the Cantillon beers for me.

thornecb (4403) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottled in 2004. Pours a cloudy pear into a tumbler. Bright white head recedes to skim surface. Pear, brett and apricot aromas. Sharp, sour aspirin and sulphur turning to ever so slight apricot. Finish leaves me smacking my lips.

skortila (4514) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2007
Aroma of aprikots (not too much) and citrus. Hazy, yellow-orange coloured with a thin, white, lasting head. Taste is quite sour/tart with citrus, aprikots, yeast and some oak. Quite a nice balance for a beer so sour. Refreshing palate. Well brewed.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2007
Slightly clouded orange with a small white head. Not too much apricot in the aroma, surprisingly similar to the gueuze... perhaps a tiny bit of dried stonefruits. Nice tart fruity flavour, light dry apricot... perhaps some sweetness towards the finish, which combines well with the brilliant cantillon acidity. Could have been better if I drank it sooner, seemed the apricot was well on its way out (2005 bottle). Bloody good though.
