Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Lightly vegetal, apricot aroma. Flavor was slick, powerful sourness, with only light fruit. Sharply acidic, almost piercing. I poured my wine glass pour into a traditional Cantillon tumbler and it became a much different beer. Though it was just as bracing, the intensity of the aroma and sourness died down, at least a bit. Still, it was a tough beer to put down. Reaffirmed my belief though that all but the smallest samples of lambic should be drank from the traditional tumblers.

Vintage bottled stored by me for 4 years. Hazy orange colour with yeast strands. Malty aroma with notes of nuts, acid and fruit. Acidic flavour with notes of citrus, some malt and sweet fruit. Didn´t age as well as you could imagine.

On tap at Spuyten Duyvil Brett Fest. Pours a light orange with a small white head. Aroma of sour apricot. Flavor is of sweet apricot, maybe some cream cheese (?). Light, hardly sour, very fruity, and quite excellent. I had this in bottle awhile ago and was unimpressed, but this draught version really wowwed me. Awesome and refreshing.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2008
pours hazy gray head, just around the ede. tastes lemon rind, grapefruit rind. really dry and sour mouth drying like a wine with far to much tough tannin. a bit over the top for me.

did not get a chance to get it at the brewery so i was happy to see it on tap at the brett fest. nice stone fruit and funk aroma. not as dirty or rough as expected but that is not to say it is fruity.

750ml bottle sent as an extra from pepsican. thanks andy.... cloudy light yellow orange pour with a thin fil of soapy white head.... nose was primarily funky and tart with citrus-like notes. hard to pinpoint the apricot-ness but it could have been mixed in there with the other fruit..... flavors of tart and citric acidity, extremely sour and vinegary. mild carbonation and average mouthfeel....just a touch too puckering in my mind but would def. want to have again.

750ml v. 2003. All shades of classic Cantillon funk on the nose with underlying notes of rotting sweeter apricot and peach skin. Pours a hazed gold/copper with a very thin ring of a white head. Flavor is very tart and acidic. Plenty of horsey and barn flavors. Moldy basement. Earthy, cheesy, yeasty funk. De-lish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes wih a beautiful harsh and dirty acidity and the smallest touch of moldy fruit.

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet fruity apricot aroma with that classic Cantillon horse blanket note beneath. Flavour is dry citric with a mild apricot sweetness. Goes extremely sour and acidic. Dry finish with a firm citric bite.

Sampled at BDR’s tasting and shared by BDR. Pours a hazy golden blonde brew with a thin fizzy white head that quickly dissipates to a film top. Aroma of barnyard funk, tart apricots, peach and some lemon zest. Taste is medium bodied, lots of carbonation, sour (naturally) with flavors of tart soft fruits, peach character, yeast, and some herbs. Finish remains tart that lasts a while after the finish.
