I donít know what I expected, but I found complexity and some bright, fulsome fruit flavors that were awesome in this sour, dry acidic incarnation. Pours a translucent gold with a very active but disappearing white head. Incredible aroma of bright fruits, not just apricot but also nectarine, tangerine, orange, peach, with lighter notes of ginger and catty funk. Sour flavor, lemon with tart nectarine and apricot. Quite acidic, semi-dry, and only slightly musty in the back. Fun to drink. I should have expected it to be this good.

Corked 2006. Pours an opaque nectarine/creame colour filled with particulates and forms a swirl of white foam that clings to the rim of the glass. The aroma is certainly tart, with a funky bouquet of fruits, mostly apricot and barnyard. The nose is less abrasive than a gueuzeís, but still pretty pungent. The flavour sour and salty, with vibrant overtones of strong acidic citrus, but not so acidic that it resembles acetic acid. The apricots are very subtle. Musty yeast, acid and funk mask most of the apricot. The palate is tingly and soft with a drying finish.

&50ml bottle, says 2004 Vintage on the cork!Nose is funky with tartness and light apricots; lightly hazed and apricot colored with a small white head; flavor is sour, but not like a guezue, complemented by a very light taste of the apricots. Wish you could taste a little more apricots though!

Woosh! You wanna talk acidity, here it is. Funky aroma that is fruity, citrusy, with a touch of horseblanket. I canít tell that the fruitiness is apricot. Flavor is hard acidity, bordering on acetic, biting sourness, leading into a semi-dry finish. Fruitiness swirls in the background, again not obviously apricot. Some lemony citrus is present, possibly an illusion due to the acidity. Cloudy yellow color, fizzy, soft palate.

bottle, bottled in 2001. Cloudy orange colour, tiny head. Very sour indeed, which comes as now surprise however, flavours of apricot, slightly hoppy.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 First tried at the Seattle International Beer Festival and then at the brewery in 2004. Hyper-tart apricot sour with considerable depth and complexity, good carbo level, and some pit bitters too. Beautiful beer.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Re-rated in 2012. On tap @ Patricks. Hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Nice funky aroma with fruit and particular citric fruit. Flavor is sour acidic and somehow a bit sweet at the same time. Itís not to funky but everything from a real lamic is present in a rather balanced way. Fine body and pleasant in aftertaste. A nice one for sure.

750 ml bottle tasted in 2007. Pale, hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma is really strange, sourness with a hint of mild vomit! Flavor is sour with sweet peaches. Not really balanced in my opinion. 2-3-4-3-6
