Bottle shared by atom. Hazy, orange apricot color. Not the prettiest lambic. A good amount of apricot present in the aroma. Tart, slight bile character, maybe a it of moldy cheese. Wow. This may be my favorite fruit lambic. Loads of apricot flavor, slight acidity towards the finish. I love the balance and the big apricot flavor.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Classic Cantillon fruit lambic, with real Bergeron apricots to which the label playfully refers; yellowish and hazy robe, powerful aroma with all the Cantillon funkiness one can expect, very fruity from esters as well as apricots, barnyard, sherry, sweat, sour cream, taste very Cantillon - in other words, lots of ’neige’ citric acid, lots of lactic acid, lots of funkiness, uncompromisinly sour yet very complex, woody, very dry, with the apricots shining through nicely. One of their many masterpieces.

poech73 (178) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Sample@Quintessence 2014. Lambic fort effervescent, court en bouche dominé par des saveurs de macarons acidulé. Le nez fruité développe des effluves d’amande, d’abricots avec une amertume herbacée. En bouche la bière est trop effervescente. Son malt fromenté est assez doux, mais immature au point d’exacerber les sensations acides de l’abricot au détriment du fruit mais moins agressif que la Kriek tout en laissant sur le palais un doux sirupeux peu amer sur des notes minérales. A faire mûrir et à regoûter plus tard.

2008 bottle. Aroma: Pear, chardonnay, sour apricot, Medium-intense tartness that evolves. Flavors: Tart pear, apricot fruit, vinegar, bitter apricot and ume skins. Lingering blend of tart fruit on the finish. Comment: Very special and great mix of slightly viscous aged nectar and vinegar.

Hazy orange/yellow pour with a white head. Light citrus and apricot/peach aroma and some tropical rain. Flavor is sour apricot/orange. Pretty damn tasty.

Hophopper (12) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2014
Pale gold colored beer with a little head. Aromas of apricots and salt. Taste is very sour and salty, but while warming up turns over to a subtile sweet apricot tastes.

Bottle thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Aug 2013 bottling. Very cloudy, pale yellow-orange pour with a small foamy head that fades very slowly. Aroma is pretty funky with lots of yogurt, damp basement, and citrus-y fruit. Taste starts with a bunch of sour, acidic citrus fruit. Doesn’t really taste like apricots but it’s definitely citrus-y. Lots of oak and some vinegar too. Sourness is moderate, strong tart finish. Love the soft but fizzy carbonation. Really good beer but I thought I was gonna like this more than I did since it’s a favorite for a few of my friends.
