Hands down the finest lambic named after a woman’s nether regions. Reeks of an apricot tree - bark and all. Tastes of stone fruit and fruit stones. The funk is a given.
But this one is not that puckering. Don’t get me wrong - it’s sour. But on a scale of one to five, one being mild empuckerment and five being total facial implosion, this is about a 3.5. Time has stripped the fruit of its tartness.
A little past its prime.
One of the greatest beers that I have ever had, and certainly one of the greatest sour lambics ever. The pour is cloudy golden yellow and the aroma is funk and yeast. The flavors of this gem explode. Sour, tart, funk, musty with hints of fruit. This beer had so much flavor that my words are not doing it justice. Incredible. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Appearance: Pours a cloudy pastel yellow gold with a very shiny white film for head.peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Aroma: Lemony, apricot and musk.
Taste: Lemon, apricot, light wood.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, puckering.
Overall: Hard to describe, but very complex and very tasty. I didn’t get as much apricot as others have reported.
Bottle pour at Stone Sour Fest. Light, clear yellow in the glass. Minimal foam hugging the side of the glass. Subtle sour and apricot aroma. Huge crisp and dry sour, tart, and round dried-fruit apricot in the taste. Precise finish with distinct sour/tart reverberations. Excellent.

stone sourfest. Cloudy orange with thick white head. Nose is apricots and light fruit, hints of tartness. Flavor is full-on peach lambic, somewhere between sliced apricots and apricot syrup, sweet tarts pop up in the middle, finishes dry. Smooth creamy texture with prickly carbonation. Delicious and quaffable, great sweet-sour mix on this lambic!

Might be one of the best beers i’ve ever had, i’d quite possibly punch my mom for another drank. A brilliant beer, very sour and tart, puckering at times, the apricot levels it out a little and gives it another dimension of flavor, drinking a 750 by myself would be well worth the impending ring sting. j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a gorgeous deep apricot gold with a large white head. Lovely sweet apricots, fresh and delicious. Has that wonderful Cantillon funk with acid and vinegar notes popping through. Wonderfully tart, light vinegar over smooth apricots. Lingering acid and vinegar on the finish. tgncc (3135) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Hazy gold color, hints of orange, white head. Aroma is of barnyard, musty, some apricot and other light fruit, vinegar. Flavor is sour, some fruit. Light carbonation, thin to medium in body. The finish is vinegary sour. Decent. charlotte (5394) - rødovre, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle.Hazy golden colour with large white head.Aroma is good fruity with taste of citrus,wheat and hops,high carbonation and slight sweet acid flavor less sour then many other Lambic beers. Eructoblaster (4274) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle - 375ml. Beautiful hazy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Sharp, robust hoppy/fruity aroma with herbal and yeasty hints. Its strong taste carries apricot notes and ends with a long, sharp, dry, sour finish. Very good Lambic.
