Unde (970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Hazy orange beer with nice head on top going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has lots of apricot and other sweet fruit notes, then some sourness and yeast. Taste has sweetness and apricot, then moderate sourness in ending. Medium body and medium carbonation. A bit juicy feel because of the apricot.

On tap, Moeder Fontainas. Hazy orange colour with big white head. I guess quite young this one, usual superb funky Cantillon base but have to say beyond a sweeter hint than is perhaps normal I wouldn’t have said apricot especially.

mateuszk (2512) - Poznań, POLAND - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours light orange, bit hazy with no head. Aroma is mix of peach and barnyard plus just a bit of barnyard. In taste medium to low sour, peachy. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, peachy, dry and medium sour finish. After few years peach was still quite strong, the beer very fruity and tasty. Best peach lambic/beer I had.

My favorite Cantillon bottle. I am a sucker for peach and this one does it for me.

solidfunk (8296) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Finally got a hold of this after failing in two consecutive Snallygasters. Apricot and orange peel. Some grapefruit. Hazy orange pour with decent head. Tangy finish. Very good but underwhelming considering hype. Tap at Sovereign.

Ysok02 (1264) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2016
Un Lambic impressionnant tant par sa robe...abricot... que par son nez qui allie des notes de lambic à celles de l’abricot frais mais également confituré. La bouche est tendue, acidulée, puissante, longue et complexe. Une bouteille impressionnante. Un régal de fin de soirée.

copestx (173) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2016
Many bottles and finally draft! My favorite Cantillon. Light body, perfectly balanced with a nice acidity and fruit. Never too sweet. Belgian yeast. Dry fruity aftertaste. Heaven

DCLawyer (2787) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle at Sovereign. Hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma is fantastic funky barnyard, yeast, vinegar, fruit. Taste is very tart and acidic fruit and yeast. Fantastic lambic, with my favorite funky aroma to date.

anstei (1691) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 1, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Tap an bottle vintages 2006 & 2016 at Erzbierschof Zurich on Zwanze 2016. Lots of apricot, the bottles more so than the tap, but the latter one opened a bit more over time. Light sourness and tartness, a bit sweet and rather fruity. Iron, too. Medium body, low soft carbonation. Long apricot palate. Turns drier and lighter with age, with an increased complexity but also a bit more citric sourness. Absolutely stellar.
