pintbypint (3267) - Edmonton, Alberta, - FEB 25, 2012
750ml green bottle, corked and capped. Bottled August 2011. Hazy, deep golden pour, white head with big creaminess and long retention. No lacing. Tangy, sour, musty but sweet nose, apricot-peach fruit notes with lambic vinegary-sweaty tang. In the mouth the beer has nice acidity, balanced by fruit sweetness. Tangy and sour end, dry with lots of acidity. Beautiful lively tight prickly carbonation, medium bodied. An excellent fruit lambic, one full of acidity and sourness, but nicely contrasted by the apricot fruits’ sweetness. Very lucky that this beer has crossed my path, it’s a must try. Rating #1500.

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 (1926) - 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 (5174) - 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.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Birra fresca, estiva piacevole. L’aroma ricorda quello della frutta estiva appesa raccolta: pesche, albicocche non ancora mature, limone. Nel finire una nota di cuoio. Equilibrio magico tra acidità e dolcezza. Corpo medio e buona secchezza.
