thedm (5163) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 28, 2006
This bottled brew was sampled at the RateBeer gathering at Dick’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que. It poured a fully diminished non-existent head and a body of light orange brown color. The aroma was tingly hoppy and oh so lambic like. The mouth feel tingly and sour from start to finish. The flavor contained sour malty farmhouse notes.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2006
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 (11376) - 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!

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
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!

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2006
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.
