yespr (31235) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2008
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet fruity apricot aroma with that classic Cantillon horse blanket note beneath. Flavour is dry citric with a mild apricot sweetness. Goes extremely sour and acidic. Dry finish with a firm citric bite.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2004
an unclear orange beer with a small head. The aroma is of sour milk. And so is the flavor, though combined with notes of peach. It has a very dry end. This is not my favorite fruit-lambic.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours a hazy, pale amber with an almost completely absent head. Sourish, fruity nose. Medium body with a marked, vinegary sourness. Not too sure I can pick up the apricots though. Sour all the way through. 291006

joergen (20861) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2005
Cloudy orange colour with a small head. Aroma of sour milk, abricots and unriped fruit. Sour flavour dominated by unriped fruit with notes of abricots. Slightly bitter finish. One of the first lambics I’ve had, and I’m not used to the sour flavour yet. Interesting.

oh6gdx (20395) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2007
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white sparkling head. Aroma is concentrated sourness along with wood and fruits. Flavour is very much the same with some slight fruity notes lurking behind the sourness. Dry to the extreme.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2002
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Dark yellow, hazy, no head. Aroma of citric acid. Lightly fruity, mostlt sour. Firm maltiness, some apricot and syrup in the finish. But still - this is hardcore lambic, and just on the border of what my stomach can possibly accept.

Typically sharp and dry but not enough to induce puckering! Apricot is subtle but there. The finish is more sour.

fiulijn (14777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2004
Bottled in 2000, 4 years old
Hazy golden color. Vinegar, mold, wood, cellar aroma. Harsh, astringent, woody; the fruitness is not easy to perceive.
