’09. Bottle at Moeder Lambic in St. Guilles in Brussels. Golden yellow color. Medium white head. Lacy. Smells sour but somewhat similar to the lambic from the same year (I am also drinking it right now). ARoma is also nice citrus fruit of lemon. Head starts to disappear at the end. hits my mouth puckering but then balanced out perfectly by the sweet apricot. Wet finish also balances out the dry sour start. Finish is super long and leaves a balanced sour/touch of sweet. I get a lot of lemon through finish as well. Touches of light light caramel come through early. Really really a gem.

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 (1336) - 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 (1777) - 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.

Yellow hazy with rich white head. Sweet fryuity aroma. Sour lambic taste with rich fruity taste on background. MIld sourness remains.

Vestergaard (452) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2014
Last bottle at Fermentoren Aarhus. Had this a couple of times under less good circumstances. Pours cloudy yellow-amber with a small white head. Aroma has lots of both acidic and more ripe apricot and some peach as well. Funky yeast, slight vinegar and dry leather. Taste is very bitter and sour up front, but turns more sweet and fruity, and ends off with some more bitterness. Very fruity. Prominent apricots, and reminds me of a Danish skyr-snack with apricots. Sparkling, fresh body. Really a lovely lambic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GlasgowTAD (126) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle at home 2014 vintage. Aroma is barnyard funk, hay. Foamy white head thats quite active on an, unsurprisingly, apricot colour body. Taste is medium sour, medium tart with hints of sweet and apricot on the short finish. Lovely beer and well balanced, not overpowering in any sense.

toxichop (393) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
P: Hazy orange with a thin white head that sticks and never leaves. S: Lots of oak, barnyard smell, loaded with apricots, tropical fruits, floral yeast and a bit of wheat. T: A ton of apricots that coat your entire mouth like freaking apricot syrup, you get that oak, yeast, wheat, some sugar but the apricots just dominate with greek yogurt tartness to finish it all. M: Really light with soft carbonation and light sourness. O: An apricot sour beer with nothing odd, just damn good.

Bacterial (1710) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle shared with my lab, put cashed form the brewery a few weeks ago. Some liquid between the cork and cap, which I though was a little odd. Hazy yellow pour with a slight Amber orange tinge to it. Nice nose, fruit and a bit of funk. Sour, but not highly sour. Nice apricot in the taste as well.
