Hazy peach-y with a clean white head that wants out. Aroma is sourness, slight fruit (I wouldn’t say that it is apricots) and a general citrusy feeling. Swirling the glass easily revives a creamy head that leaves some nice lacings. Taste is medium sour with a refreshing acidity. Some apricot flavors do show up and even more as it warms up (HINT: drink it close to room temperature, my cold room is just too cold during the winter months and I started drinking at maybe 8-10C and it is just too cold). I swear that I get a nice apricot skin mouthfeel/flavors now and even some pits. A really fun fruit lambic, one that grows on you as you drink. I’m @ 4.1 right now but I might have to edit this rating before I reach the bottom of this bottle. Yum!

Great fresh apricot nose. The beer starts very great smooth. Lots of horse blanket, soft fruity apricots. The sourness is very moderate, wood. Extreme full bodied, soft and intense horse blanket in the aftertaste. The fruit is hidden, but still there. Great stuff!

Orange color with solid foam layer. Apricot and/or peach nose. The taste is sour and apricot fruity with a nicely balanced carbonation. Just nice. Sour and dry aftertaste.

For me one of the best Cantillon"s. 2015 vintage from cask @ moeder L. A lot of apricot in the aroma, mild sour and sour apricot peach vanilla finish. Bottled version at cantillon (first botteling) Apricot is less present, comes more in when served with yeast, finish is apricot jam. Also had a glass from the last botteling, with more ripe apricot, this is going a lot towards Apricot marmelade/jam. All versions were exeptional

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 Een ’vier’ is misschien ietsje te hoog gerated voor dit bier, Vond hem in het begin wel héél zurig, op het einde werd het beter. Edit: moet mijn mening echt bijstellen, vandaag een tweede fles van kunnen opendoen. Gewoonweg perfect.
