Woosh! You wanna talk acidity, here it is. Funky aroma that is fruity, citrusy, with a touch of horseblanket. I canít tell that the fruitiness is apricot. Flavor is hard acidity, bordering on acetic, biting sourness, leading into a semi-dry finish. Fruitiness swirls in the background, again not obviously apricot. Some lemony citrus is present, possibly an illusion due to the acidity. Cloudy yellow color, fizzy, soft palate.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 First tried at the Seattle International Beer Festival and then at the brewery in 2004. Hyper-tart apricot sour with considerable depth and complexity, good carbo level, and some pit bitters too. Beautiful beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Re-rated in 2012. On tap @ Patricks. Hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Nice funky aroma with fruit and particular citric fruit. Flavor is sour acidic and somehow a bit sweet at the same time. Itís not to funky but everything from a real lamic is present in a rather balanced way. Fine body and pleasant in aftertaste. A nice one for sure.
750 ml bottle tasted in 2007. Pale, hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma is really strange, sourness with a hint of mild vomit! Flavor is sour with sweet peaches. Not really balanced in my opinion. 2-3-4-3-6

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ ōlbaren. [Huge thanks to Sk8viking for sharing this one] Small fizzy head that was quickly goon. Clear flat body with a golden color. Aroma was the classic Cantillon famous aroma. Other notes of vinegar, dust, soap like, fresh apple, raw fruit like feel. Hint of raw rubber and light barnyard. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation and dry texture. Moderated sour flavor with light fruity sweet notes. Sour and lingering finish. Very nice.

Draft at Belmont Station: Pours golden with barely a head with white bubbles. Very sour aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet and very very sour, i can just barely get some of the apricot in there but its so sour that takes over. Some musty yeastiness. Dry finish. If you like sour you will love this. Not balanced at all.

On tap! at the Belmont Station Puckerfest 2007. Beautiful beer, sour and acidic as all cantillon beer, dry and earthy/dusty flavors with a lingering dry apricot finish. Pours cloudy orange with a soft white head that falls quickly. The apricot in this beer gave the impression of sweetness even though the beer is still very dry.
