Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a headless blonde. Aroma is much like Cantillonís gueuze, funky, tart, didnít pick up much hint of the apricots. In flavor, tart, sour, apricot comes through towards the end of the palate, some hints of fruit pits. Dry and puckering. Not as much depth as the gueuze, but excellent.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. HUGE thanks to Brent for getting this what I am guessing was pretty expensive keg. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Nose is sour apples, mangos, peaches and apricots. The flavor profile is very complex. Tart up front with some hay, funk, lemon juice and mouth puckering sour finish with the apricot coming through at the very end. Expertly crafted. This is the most sour Cantillion Iíve had.

Draft at Redlight REdlight. I truly did NOT want to try this as I am NOT a fan of sours. THe pour on this was very nice. Murky peach pink color. The aroma was actually very nice, kind of like sour apples and sweet tarts. The flavor was very tart and tangy. Almost reminded me of fruit spoiling. I am still not a fan, however, this one, if tried regularly, could have probably converted me.

Bottle with da boys. Pours a hazy yellow. Sour and fruity. Hints of vinegar. Berries. Some red currants aromas. Medium body. Hints of black pepper. Dry mellow sour finish.

Bottle seem to be leaking a bit when uncapped. The pour is deep day-old moisty piss yellow with a white bright head. The apricots stands clearly in the nose together with wet straws and something like apple-vinegar. The taste is round and mild combined with some ass kicking sourness if it makes sense. The fruityness is perfectly combined with the sourness. The palate is nice and fizzy with a finish that are very well balanced with a not too sourness together with a buttery sweetness. One of the best cantillons Ive had balanced-wise

Funky sour dried apricot aroma. Flavor has a superb balance between the fruit and acidity. This is quite tart, however, and delicious. Distinct peach skin notes on the finish.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 2, 2008
Botella. Huge thanks Warren for sharing. Pours a hazy golden peachy colour. Lovely tart fruity apricot aroma. great filling mouthfeel. The flavour is really so pleasantly sour with abricots and stable. Great fruit lambic indeed.

Travlr (20853) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2008
750 ml bottle. It had a light, thin white head that held for longer than other lambics, and the taste was more sour that their other fruit-based lambics and gueuzes. Very full, creamy taste, with little to no sweetness. A winner!

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2008
2007 bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a bright, hazy yellow gold with a moderate size fluffy white head that lingers as a ring and swirl for a while. The lacing is minimal. The aroma is quite sour, with lemons, apricots and a bit of funk - barnyard, hay, etc. Quite a bit like lemon juice combined with some vinegar. The taste is even more sour than the aroma with a massive acidic lemon kick up front before a little bit of fruity sweetness in the middle, but then back to the massive sour presence that attacks the taste buds and makes the lips pucker in the finish. The palate is light and dry with a tingly carbonation presence. Wow, this is a seriously funky and acidic lambic that is pretty harsh on the taste buds. Very tasty stuff.
