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.

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.

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!

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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Light yellow colored with hazy appearance. Little vanishing white head. Sweet apricot dominates this nice lambic sour aroma, some pineapple and raspberries also present. Medium bodied, biting palate. Flavor is also nicely soft with apricot and fine sourness, aftertaste lasts with sweet sourness still. Easy to drink good lambic.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - OCT 18, 2008
Clean bright yellow with a little nice white head. Mellow funkiness, malty, barnyardy, with a subtle apricot/peach. Extremely sour.

GABF 2008, Dr. Bill’s tasting. Pours hazy light yellow with an average, fizzy, white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw), light hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with notes of grapes and wood. Medium bodied, mineral texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Pours golden apricot with no head. Nose is alcohol and apricot. The flavor goes more tart apricot with a dry finish. A sweetness in the middle comes through.

Pours hazy peach color with some fizzy white bubbles on top that quickly disappear. Aroma is lovely and complex, very smooth. Peach (though Iím sure that is the apricots, I donít know what an apricot smells like), oak, vanilla, some citrus (orange, lemon.) Taste, whoa. Whoa. This is so peachy, and sooo so sour, I can feel my cheeks puckering relentlessly way in the back of my mouth. This is pretty acidic, I think I can already feel my stomach churning a little bit and I definitely feel it in my chest. But still... I absolutely love this.
