4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 Bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy orange gold with disappearing head. Yep, itís got apricot on aroma, with some funk. Pretty well carbonated. Itís an odd mix of sweet apricot fruit and a full on dry sharp lemony lambic. The aroma is what? Funk and sweet apricot. Really acidic sharp finish. Not sure that I like it that much. Nice in mouthfeel with sharp stewed apple. Very dry on end. Well made, nothing wrong with it, but not for me. 2.6/5 previous rating was from when I was an idiot. On tap at Borefts 2014. Amazing love the fruit and sourness. Just beautiful.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Iíve tried this many times, generally with some years of aging. Yeah...this is the bomb Iíve had many Cantillonís and been to the brewery, and this apricot funky sour masterpiece and the Lou Pepe fruity concoctions rock Cloudy copper-apricot. Giant aroma of sour, funky apricot. Taste is mouth puckering but delicious in the sour arena ... barnyard and horse blanket, acidic, apricot and other tart fruits with just enough sweetness to keep it intriguing. Ages well.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottled in 2004, drunk in march 2008. pours a hazy cloudy straw honey color, with a thin white head that fades quickly. oh my what a smell! abundant sour apricot--dominating, but not overpowering--sour funky cantillon yeast, lemon zest, and a very light honey malt. very light apricot taste, some lemon, some pale malt, but oh dear me thatís sour! some grapey notes kick in here and there as well, maybe some grass and some must and some vinegar. finshes, guess what? sour! light sweetness, iíd call it dry, but my mouth waters so much after that itís hard to tell. very acidic. light body, with a great texture from the carbonation. great stuff. the apricots are there in just the right abundance, and thereís a ton of acidity and sourness, but enough complexity to keep it from being one-dimensional. i put a lot of money into it, but iím quite glad i did. the smell reminds me of the trolli gummy hamburger buns, if anyone knows what i mean.

Bottle 75 cl. Small white head, deep orange/yellow colour. Good looking. Nice aroma of apricots. The flavour is very acidic/sour but is some how balanced by some sweetness in the finish.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
