hazy pale orange. smell = equal parts dried apricots and shit. big sour juicy apricot taste fills your mouth and then tweaks into funky lambicity.

Sampled at Cantillon brewery: Pretty bloody good stuff, slight apricot sweetness in the start, but dry, sour and tart finish, tremendoulsy refreshing, and very well balanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled in 2000. Apricot and oak in the aroma. Very sour taste with oak, apricot, lemon, grapefruit. Absolutely no sweetness left. Long finish with lots of citric sourness. Brilliant beer!! Only misses the intense depth of a well matured geuze.

The aroma is amazing, light apricot, oak, fruity. Hazy, golden/yellow/amber colour. Small white frothy head. Very sour (almost too harsh), very oak and tart. Fruity. In the flavors the apricot is gone. Short finish, sour and dry.

Bursting with sweet fruit, then bringing in a great undercut of lambic tartness. Well structured.
