Not the usual, funky, barnyard Cantillon drink. Pours a very hazy, pale orange color with a creamy white head. The nose is very acidic, a sour fruit aroma, apricot with tart oranges and lemons. Light bodied with a tongue cleansing astringency. The apricot recedes in the flavor, returning in the finish, but shadowed by the sour lemon and zest of lemon, tart oranges, and a touch of straw. Nice dry finish.

Ratman197 (11234) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2006
750ml bottle poured a cloudy yellow orange with a small lingering white head. Aromas of citrus, muskiness, spice and light apricot. Palate was light bodied and tart. Flavors of lemon, some muskiness and hints of apricot with the glorious tart lingering Cantillon finish!

Tasted at the 2006 Pizza Port Belgian Fest. This fruit lambic pours a light yellow very hazy gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, tart, sour and dry. Touch of apricots. A medium bodied lambic. Malts are fruity, with a prevalent apricot flavor. Intensly dry with a nearly mouth puckering tartness. Very dry, nearly Berliner Weiss in tartness. Still there is a strong malt and fruity backbone under all that tartness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is tart.

Very sour in aroma, very cloudy with no head. This is a bitter beer that makes you pucker up but crave it more and more with each sip!

Sample at Indy tasting Dick’s BBQ 3/31/06 - Aroma has a sour soapy nose with lemon, apricot, and yeast. Pours cloudy muddy yellow with no head or lacing. WOW! Pucker up, this baby is sour. Lots of citrus, apricot, and yeast. Palate is very tart. Interesting and tasty.

Sweet apricot with tart notes. Cloudy and nectar-like. This reminded me of a bellini. Light straw color. Very tart and grapefruity.

(75cl Bottle. 03/2006) Delicious. Initial aromas are all funk just as you’d expect from a Cantillon -- all the distinctive Cantillon aromas are there. Hazy straw/orange. Expected barnyard flavors. Wonderful palate -- perfectly medium-full with lively carbonation and a long finish. Then I let this breathe ... about half an hour into it (I had left some in a glass) it was like smelling and eating an apricot ... amazing. This is a great beer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2006
2004. Hazy gold. Fizzy, white head settles quickly. Nose- musty, sour, spicy yeast and pungent, past ripe apricot. Same flavor. Very sour and a bone dry finish. Apricot is a perfcet choice for a lambic. Medium, balanced body. The best fruit lambic I’ve had.
