FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2012
On draft at Zwanze Day ’12 Chicago. Stupid good, funk frenzy with love on the side, perfectly tart and earthy with the refreshing characteristics of the best lambics ever.

Borefts 2014. Poured hazy orange, frothy off white head. Aroma of tart apricot. Light body, flavour as the aroma, lovely and tart, very refreshing and nicely balanced.

@Borefts 2014, Oranje/geel zonder kraag. Aroma van licht zoetje over een basis zuur. Smaken zijn matig zacht zuur(niet extreem) maar redelijke vorm van zoetigheid. ’tja veel van de lambic bieren smaken nagenoeg het hetzelfde deze is wat gebalanceerder, komt wat zachten en iets zoeter binnen.

rxeight (1334) - Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2014
2013 release. Very carbonated. Lots of apricot. Slight sour. Wierd finish, still apricot, but like the unsweetened part by the pit. Had this right after blabær, I’ll put them on the same level.

fkoolen (312) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
15cl tasting @ Borefts Beer Festival. Hazy golden, big creamy head. Apricot rounds of some typical big tard, vinegar lambiek-ness. Medium carbonation, prickly but creamy soft mouthfeel, good body.

slowrunner77 (3771) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"2011 batch - wish list cross off. BIG fruit aroma and flavor...definitely not subtle with the apricot, but it’s more than balanced out by the sourness that while not overaggressive, gets me in the back o the jaw after a few sips. light bodied and refreshing while also being quite tasty and complex."

On tap at Borefts. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Sour fruity aroma of apricot and wood. Taste is very sour fruity, apricot, wood, long sour fruity aftertaste. Very nice.

Maakun (657) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Hazy orange with small white head. Fruits pits, dry sour apricot, lots of sour grains with complex spicyness. Lots of wood too. Very deep sour with a light bitter finish. Pretty good stuff!

ruigo (1125) - PORTUGAL - SEP 22, 2014
On tap at Zwanze Day. Hazy orange colour and fluffy white head. Apricots and tart in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is dry with some sweet notes and a tart finish. Not so much apricots in the flavour. Overall, an interesting Lambic but no so complex.

BiiruBierBeer (177) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Smell is apricot and a bit of vinegar. Taste is very sour with lots of lactic and acetic sourness plus the lovely note of apricots that brings it all together. This is my favorite Cantillon that I have had.

Nische (732) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Pours hazy lemon yellow, fluffy white ring. Acidic lemon, apricot, cedar on the nose. Real light refined body with a super lemon sour tartness that’s drying on the finish.
