brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2010
750mL 2007 bottle at Max’s on Broadway in Baltimore. Pours a hazy, cloudy yellow with a bit of fluffy head. Aroma is very tart and acidic, with some yeast. Taste is initially dominated by tartness, fading a touch to a balance between acidity and tartness that is somehow balanced by a somewhat dry apricot flavor. Finish is very bitter, with apricot and citrus peel.

gyllenbock (8690) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2010
Bottle, vintage 2005. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Typical aroma of Cantillon, tart with earth, grass, citrus, dry. Unfortunately, almost all the fruitiness was gone, still a descent beer. Next time I will try a newer bottle.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2010
Shared this with my wife at the Delirium in Bruxelles. Golden with a white head. Really sour aroma with notes of dust. Champagne-ish palate. More sour than any peach. Really sour and surprisingly bitter.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 ’09 pours hazy gold-orange, crackling thin white head. Tart, wheaty nose, bracing sourness and acidity that masks any consistent fruit. More peach in the flavor, still lemon, must, and light barn with a strong, Biting acidity in the throat. Of course its damn good, that’s Cantillon, but it’s a little simpler than typical for them. I’d also prefer more fruit here.

Had this a handful of times, never understood the love, then had a bottle of unknown vintage (DAMN!) thanks to Brad... alongside Beatification b2 as best beer of the night (30 or so samples). Amazing fruit depth tucked in behind the lambic, makes my memory of Blabaer too sweet.

Viper666 (3283) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2010
Bouteille 750ml (2009), courtoisie de JulienHuxley. De couleur dorée-orange et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées sauvages légèrement aigre (abricots, léger de limes, notes de pêches) aux notes terreuses avec des notes herbeuses et des petites traces boisées (fût de chêne et bois humide). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture aux petites notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées sauvages moyennement aigres (abricots, notes de pêches, traces de lime et de pommes) et très légèrement terreuses lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute de faibles traces de fromage vieilli puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût herbeux (herbes mouillées) avec un léger regain d’aigreur fruitée. Post-goût moyen et aux petites notes sèches, moyennement aigre de levures fruitées (pelures d’abricots et de pêches, notes de zest d’agrumes), avec des notes herbeuses.

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Bottle from doodler- thanks scott! Pours a hazy golden orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of earth, must, lemony herbs, grassy wheat zest, lactic acid. an old world musty basement lemon earthy sourness with some light fruit character. Awesome all around. refreshing, complex, tasty, earthy funky sour. Fruit is much more present as it warms. Could be a bit drier, but otherwise, everything you could ever want out of a beer.

pineypower (3249) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Pours a cloudy light orange color with a 1 finger white head. Tart and sour aroma with some notes of light fruit and some funk. Taste is tart, notes of some funk and light oak make an appearance, as it warms the apricot comes out more and you get a nice blend of tartness and fruit. Once again another great beer from Cantillon.

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2010
Appearance is orange. Aroma of tart and funk with hints of peaches. Taste is sour with sweetness from the apricots that compensates quite well. The fruit doesn’t really come threw as expected but still an amazing beer.
