Bottled 75cl. Horse blanket throughout. Complex. Apricot most present in the finish. Some dandelion sneaking in late. Delicious.

tommann (2861) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours hazy gold with a large head. Aroma is sour and cheesy with a little peach. Taste is sour and cheesy peach to start. Not too intense. Touch of peach. Slightly watery mouthfeel.

SarkyNorthener (2388) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle shared with Richthevillan, cheers Rich for this top beer. Slightly hazy amber beer with large head. Aroma of apricots and some lambic notes. Taste is fruity sherbet, apricots, some cheese, light lambic action and zesty. Palate is a little chalky and a touch of oil. Excellent.

Vintage 2013, vieillit 1 an. Très sour, bien acidulée et le goût de l’abricot est parfaitement équilibré avec les saveurs. Amertume très courte.

bastarda (116) - Freiburg, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2014
Most kindly shared by Oldmanriver and with bartlebier and Bierle. Aromas of ripe apricots, oak and vanilla, mingled with a tender tartness. The taste is even more complex, something so rare. Bringing on an apricot universe, zooming into all stages of an apricot’s beautiful and simple life, from almost still green with this blackthorny sourness via its juicy, sweet and mouthwatering sourish heyday over to the near jam-like overripe stage with tartness being softened by the onset of mildly decomposing spots. Wonderful!

drsandman (403) - New York, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a lightly clouded yellow gold with light fluffy white head. Aroma is apricot heavy, must, light lacto, orange, farmhouse, peach. Flavor is apricot city, med sour, fairly tart, dry.. Very fruity. This is an extremely beautiful beer.

bigda83 (284) - Jamestown, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Looks marvelous. Aroma was very odd to me. I was expecting some fruit burst with apricot, but it was more like a vinegar and sour beer smell. Taste was almost dead on to me for a standard sour. I got some hay, barnyard funk, and tartness to it. I’m not sure if I was just expecting more, or my tastes are off, or I drank a bad one. Not bad, and sours don’t bother me, but I was thinking this would be 100% different. Light body and well carbed.

andrew_drinks (112) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 9, 2014
Draught at Borefts. Considering the way the kegs are being butchered at the bar, it looks good - clear, pale, slight head. Aroma of peach skins and old-school homemade lemonade, and a bit of the farmyard. Flavour is lemon juice cut with effervescent peach, fizzes off the palate into long, sour and dry finish. A wonderful beer, classic lambic imbued with the essence of peach.

Yorker (1351) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
Corked 75 cl bottle @ home (2014 vintage). Pours hazy yellow with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are lemons, apricots, lactose, and a little funk - with a slightly dry finish.

artmcd8 (1787) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2014
On tap at Capone’s 2014 Black Friday. Pours a completely cloudy orangey yellow without a head. Aromas of apricots, sour lacto aroma, slight farm funk. Taste is at the upper end of sour for a drinkable beer. Medium light body and medium light carb. Really enjoyable. One of my favorite Cantillon beers althought it was a tad bit overly sour.

ciocanelu (101) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 26, 2014
Cloudy orange with frothy white head. Smell is fruity with just a bit of funk. Taste is quite tart with some nice stone fruit notes. Medium body with very good carbonation making it very easy drinking and refreshing. Definitely one of the best fruit lambics.
