Pours a hazy peach color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, cheesy, funk, brett, and some oak. Flavor is fruity, malty, funky, cheesy, with a dry fruity tart finish. Another good beer from Cantillon but not my favorite.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma is tart and lactic, with nice accent form the apricot. Flavor is very tart, making my lips pucker. Apricot is present only in the background. Long, dry, tart finish. Great Lambic.

mkgrenwel (602) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2008
beautiful sour acidity and sweet fruit. Juicy apricot washes all over the tongue. Strong sourness everywhere, but aided by a real sweetness balancing it. Sweet at the initial sip. Champagne like light effervescent palate. Feels full in the mouth, but light and refeshing. Another incredible summer beer, easy to drink and refreshing, but comlex and vary tasty. Does have slight hints of Belgian barnyard funk, but it is hiding pretty well. Just about as good as the style gets.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 750, bottled in 2004. Pours a crystal clear yellow hue, virtually no head. Aroma is most noticeably sour, with funk and apricot in the background. A little more funk in the flavor, but sour still dominates, the apricot really kicks in on the finish though and lasts awhile on the palate. Again, very sour, even for a Cantillon, but avoided anything vinegary. Solid brew. 7-4-8-4-14 6/7/08, on tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Aroma starts off almost cheese-like, then transforms to robust apricots upon warming. Flavor entirely tart apricots, almost hot/spicy tart. Not as overwhelmingly sour as from the bottle. 8-4-8-4-15

Poured a hazy light yellow color with small white head. Tart citrus and horsey aroma. Big acidic citrus and tart flavor. Clean finish. Yum yum.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow in color with a thin white head. Oh so wonderful aroma of Cantillon yeast and funk with a touch of sweet from the fruit. Taste is jaw puckering excellence. Flavors of barnyard, funk, slight apricot, but overall just a ton of sour and tart. I found this one more acidic then most other Cantillons, but it wasnít horrible. Of all the Cantillons I have had this one tops the charts in tartness and I love it. I want more.

Yves (2525) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2008
Cloudy yellow colour with small white head. Strong sour aroma with a hint of sweet abricot. Full sour diminishing palate finishing off strong bitter and fruity. Itís not the beer to drink all night long but just one is heavenly.
