humlelala (1280) - - FEB 3, 2013
(75 cl bottle from Ølbutikken; 2012 Vintage) Pours a cloudy amber with medium, white head that diminishes quickly. Some regeneration and a little lace. Aroma is cidery with leather and fruit notes. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a tart finish. Flavour is bone dry and tart. Not as fruity as I would have expected for such a fresh vintage. Girlfriend says: "I don’t see why it’s one of the best beers. It’s like cider to me."

Bottle from Himmelriget. Hazy yellow with low white head. Quite high carbonation. Aroma of sourness, apricot and wheat malt. Taste is dry apricot, wheat, Sour with Sour aftertaste. Only improvement would be even more apricot or a supplement of passionfruit!

beerbaaron (1933) - Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle. August 2015 vintage. So well put together. Apricot is a part of the beer rather than ’something added’. Medium to high sour and tart. Moderate funk, mustiness. Semi dry. Nothing overpowers. Intricate. Excellent.

BuckeyeBoy (5483) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2016
750ml bottle pours out a hazy golden straw color topped with a small head. nose is amazing apricot lots of the classic cantillon funk barrel notes. Taste is more of the amazing funky barnyard lemon apricot notes. I love this one.
