11/7/07 From the bottle. Aroma is very sulfuric, sweet/sour with lots of fruit, mainly apricot, and earthy tones. Appearance is hazy light yellow with a low white head. Flavor is earthy forward, with very tart fruit, low fruity sweetness, complex and clashing. Mouthfeel is spritzy, medium bodied, and resiny in the finish. Overall, this isn’t terrible, but definitely lacks the smoothness or balance such a well reviewed beer should have.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a hazy pale yellow without any head. Looks a bit like apple juice. Aroma is musky, apricot, barnyard and a slight fruity tartness. Low carbonation, giving the beer a slight oily feel. Flavour is powerfully tart at first, slight oakiness mixing well. Very dry mouthfeel, but it is stunningly well-crafted the way the fruity apricot flavours abound after the tartness has subdued. Very nice. (and stunning for a hot Chili Con Carne)
7/2/9/3/17 = 3.8

Re-rate: Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Hazy golden with a lovely, white head. Sweetish aroma with a sh**-load of apricot and actually peach. Light carbonation, great dryness. Just top-class flavour, apricot, exoticness, tart, fruity and incredibly fresh. Just magnificent. 9/4/9/4/17 = 4.3

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white sparkling head. Aroma is concentrated sourness along with wood and fruits. Flavour is very much the same with some slight fruity notes lurking behind the sourness. Dry to the extreme.

Hazy orange with tiny head. Aroma is sour with citrus, abricot and woody notes. Very sour flavor with well hidden hints of abricot ;-) Lovely...

Huge thanks to mgumby for this one, thanks again Mike! My first one from these guys. Poured a cloudy golden color with a thin medium white head. The aroma was big of apricots, acidic sourness, and some funk. The aroma doesn’t prepare you for the onsluaght of sourness to follow. The flavor was all of sour apricots and peaches with the acidity and sourness dominating the taste. There is a good amount of funk in there as well with all the sourness. It was enough to make you pucker up from all the sour taste. It was medium bodied with a sour dry finish with a nice long aftertaste. I really enjoyed this one, am digging the sour stuff.

Pours a cloudy gold color with a decent white head. Smells of that classic Cantillon funk and acidity where you really dont get much else but that. Its ok, Ive come to expect it from these guys. The flavor is much the same. I got just the slightest little apricot flavor because the funk and sourness is so overpowering, its toug to pull out other flavors. Big cheek puckering acidity rules here, medium dry finish, with a lemony fruity aftertaste. Another great showing.

Thanks Mgumby! Huge apricot floral aroma, with some acidic sourness on the nose. Pours Peachy yellow. The flavor is awesome! Sweet apricots, sour peaches, apple skins, great horseblanket feel, with sour dry finish. The fruit flavor is so great. Man this is a great lambic. There’s almost a creamy mouthfeel in the aftertaste.

Bottle from BOE 07-10-07 Poured a wonderful murky orange colour and whilst quite fizzical there was no head. Aroma was tart but the apricots were definitely there. Tasted initially very acidic which took a while to wane but it did and then a strident fruitiness started to flood through with soft fleshy overripe apricots becoming more and more noticeable. This was a nice lambic but I felt that it needed time, initially I wasn’t so fussed but owing to it being a rather large 750ml bottle I noticed that after 45-60 mins later it started tasting so much better. With time the vicious acid bite at the start seemed to mellow a touch obviously that was the case of ones palate getting used to it but also I like to think that maybe a bit of air and the slowing down of that carbonation might have helped.

From a bottle poured a slightly hazy golden color. Nice tart flavor with all kinds of fruity flavoring.
