did not get a chance to get it at the brewery so i was happy to see it on tap at the brett fest. nice stone fruit and funk aroma. not as dirty or rough as expected but that is not to say it is fruity.

750ml bottle sent as an extra from pepsican. thanks andy.... cloudy light yellow orange pour with a thin fil of soapy white head.... nose was primarily funky and tart with citrus-like notes. hard to pinpoint the apricot-ness but it could have been mixed in there with the other fruit..... flavors of tart and citric acidity, extremely sour and vinegary. mild carbonation and average mouthfeel....just a touch too puckering in my mind but would def. want to have again.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2008
750ml v. 2003. All shades of classic Cantillon funk on the nose with underlying notes of rotting sweeter apricot and peach skin. Pours a hazed gold/copper with a very thin ring of a white head. Flavor is very tart and acidic. Plenty of horsey and barn flavors. Moldy basement. Earthy, cheesy, yeasty funk. De-lish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes wih a beautiful harsh and dirty acidity and the smallest touch of moldy fruit.

yespr (33804) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet fruity apricot aroma with that classic Cantillon horse blanket note beneath. Flavour is dry citric with a mild apricot sweetness. Goes extremely sour and acidic. Dry finish with a firm citric bite.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Sampled at BDRís tasting and shared by BDR. Pours a hazy golden blonde brew with a thin fizzy white head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of barnyard funk, tart apricots, peach and some lemon zest. Taste is medium bodied, lots of carbonation, sour (naturally) with flavors of tart soft fruits, peach character, yeast, and some herbs. Finish remains tart that lasts a while after the finish.

mjs (5059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2008
(Bottle at Kaisla on 2008-02-16) Hazy and golden. Rather big head. Sourness and fruitiness in nose. Sour taste with apricots in aftertaste. Very good.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2008
Hazy golden beer with a small white head. Sour and fruity aroma. Dried apricots are hardly noticable. The same goes for the flavor: sour, fruity (citrus) and a dry sour finish. Apricots are agian hardly noticable.

downender (6718) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2008
2006 bottle from Hopduvel, Gent. Murky, opaque gold colour with no head yet plenty of carbonation. Musty, almost vinegary aroma of mushrooms, dried apricots and orange peel. Flavour was very astringent, with some more fruit, yeast and a very dry, sour finish. Not my favourite Cantillon beer by a long way.

Thanks to BDR for sharing. 2002 vintage bottle, pours a cloudy, yellow-orange body with white head. Funky aroma with sour citrus character. Incredibly sour fruit flavor makes this a difficult beer to drink. Once you get used to it a bit, the apricot, lemon, and peach flavors start to come out a bit. Medium bodied, mouth-puckering mouthfeel. Acidy, citrus finish.
