Thanks Todd. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. The nose is tart, yeasty, major acidity, mild apricot, funky. The flavor is super tart and acidic, some phenol, musty background. Tart/acidic palate.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 375 ml bottle, 2010. Amazing apricot nose, much more than any bottled version of this I have had. Lovely deep fruity nose, with manure, apples, light spice. Lovely sour apricot flavor. Brilliant body. Wow, this is good. Probably kept in th efrig the whole time, because this is so fruity. Great.

375 ml bottle from 2008. 3.7 Light amber-tinted gold, like ginger ale. Head goes quickly to lace. Aroma of apricots, lemons, horse blanket, grape. Big acidity, yet smooth and soft. Lemon, citrus, all kinds of fruit, lactic acid, and enough sweetness too. Not exactly one of my favorites of theirs, but very interesting and nice indeed.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2009 Bottle opened like a pandora’s box by ajm. Please God, tell me this was infected. Smells absolutely vile -- like human remains or the worst baby diaper you’ve ever changed. Other than this smell, there was no sign of infection, though, so (to my disbelief) we actually consumed more than half of the bottle! Anything for a rating, right? Pours a hazy apricot color with a trim white head. Tastes of soured apricots, seeds included, wood, and mold. ROUGH. RERATED: On tap at Hop Leaf. This is way better when it’s not infected :) Pours apricot in color with a frothy white head. Smells uber funky. More lemon juice than apricot, but certainly balanced in its assult. Glad I got to try this one again.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Massively disappointing because this bottle was infected and the nose was like diapers and rot. The flavor, while there, was certainly interfered with. The juice of the apricot was present and nicely soured but it was all I could do to make it out. Will try another bottle if able.

2008 Bottle. Pours straw like with a thin white head. Lovely apricot jam aroma, with that classic Cantillon musty funk. At cellar temp this is shockingly sour, but finishes jammy with rich butter notes.

Thanks to Kevin and Karen for buying and sharing this one. Really tart up-front, as it warms you get some of the fruitiness towards the back-end. I enjoyed it all-told, but it was almost a little too astringent for me.

750ml, 2008, pours with a beautiful orange color fading to yellow at the bottom of the glass. Virtually no head, just a ring of carbonation around the glass. Apricot flavors at the front, tart, but not overwhelmingly so... green tomatoes, sour apple, Hints of peach, berries. Wow, great lambic.

On tap @ Toronado. Pours a cloudy glowing orange color with no head. Tart nose of apricot, citrus zest, and a bit of Belgian funk. Taste is medium on sourness, vinegar and dry apricots. Finishes with some oak and a faint sweetness.
