Bottle from Belmont Station. Massively disappointing because this bottle was infected and the nose was like diapers and rot. The flavor, while there, was certainly interfered with. The juice of the apricot was present and nicely soured but it was all I could do to make it out. Will try another bottle if able.

2008 Bottle. Pours straw like with a thin white head. Lovely apricot jam aroma, with that classic Cantillon musty funk. At cellar temp this is shockingly sour, but finishes jammy with rich butter notes.

Thanks to Kevin and Karen for buying and sharing this one. Really tart up-front, as it warms you get some of the fruitiness towards the back-end. I enjoyed it all-told, but it was almost a little too astringent for me.

750ml, 2008, pours with a beautiful orange color fading to yellow at the bottom of the glass. Virtually no head, just a ring of carbonation around the glass. Apricot flavors at the front, tart, but not overwhelmingly so... green tomatoes, sour apple, Hints of peach, berries. Wow, great lambic.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2010 7/18/10 - 2001 vintage bottle, 2006 vintage bottle, 09 draft at Stone Sour Ale Festival 2010. Pours hazy yellow, white head, marginal lacing. The 01 is extremely tart and funky; hay, grass, barnyard leather, musty, very very puckery sour, grainy bread, oak, and there is still fruit in this! Apricots and light peach notes. The 06 and 09 get progressively more fruit and less sour and funk. I absolutely loved the 01, one of the best beers I have ever had. Thanks so much for the bottle share.
5/24/09 - On tap at Toronado SD ist Anniversary party. Pours a slighty hazy bright gold color, with no head. Flavors of vinager, apricots, bread, oak, leather, light sour fruit. Very tart. An excellent lambic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2009 Aroma of citrus, peach and grapes. Taste is super sour, tart, mouth puckering, delicious peach fruit flavors and acid. Man was this some sour stuff. Fresh this has more cheese to it than with age. Not as good fresh IMO. Averaged to 3.5.
