5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Have had 2 of these. First was a 2001 bottle, second was a 2009 bottle. The 2001 was still amazingly sour. 2009 had much more apricot and a lot less sour. Both would be categorized as a couple of the best beers I have ever had, but the 2001 was worth it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the brewery. 2015. Hazy, dark yellow. Ring of dense, white head. Nose has apricot jam. Earthy, apricot stone. Malt sugars (or is it that because today is a brew day?). Beautifully fruity, with that tart undertone. Taste is lightly tart. Soft, fruity sweetness. Lovely, massaging mouthfeel. Finishes light tart and dry. Lovely.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This apricot lambic is just fantastic. The apricot character is not bold or strong, however its very soft and delicated. Sourness is strong but not too strong, very satisfying.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from 2013. Cloudy golden body with white head. Aroma is fantastic, apricots with nice balanced sourness and hints of malts. Taste is also fruity apricots with malts and some barnyard and sourness. Aftertaste is fruity sour with hints of bitterness. Perfect. This would be the perfect summer beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 75cl bottle all to myself on Christmas Day. Pours murky orange with fast receding head. Aroma is musty apricot with prickly wild yeast. Taste is sadly lacking in apricots; they are there, soft and mushy, but the bristly, thorny lambic character takes president with an acidic vinegary finish. I get the sense my eagerness got the better of me and this fresh bottle should’ve been laid for a while to allow those flavours to develop.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A perfect beer. Brilliant yellow/orange color and mild carbonation. When it’s fresh, the fruit is intense, but as it fades, the horse blanket dominates.
