750mL shared by csbosox, thanks Chris. Bottled 21 Aug 2006 so it is still pretty young and comes off as that. The pour is a beautiful apricot color (really there us no better way to describe it), thick looking. Aroma is full of thick and fuzzy apricot skins. It is very natural and fresh smelling, just love it. And yeah, other lambic things going on but the apricot is awesome. Taste has lots of puckering apricot with the lambic. Very funky and dry. Well I am not talking much about the lambic parts cause its Cantillon and as this beer the really sour and dry aspects will grow. With age I have experience this may be the most sour of all the Cantillon brews.

750 ml bottle shared by csbosox. Bottled 21 Aug 2006. Pour is cloudy, very hazy, orange white - looks like fresh squeezed orange juice. There is a lot swirling around in this glass. Not too much of a thin white head. Aroma of yeasty tart / sour apricot. Behind the fruit, I get musty oak and wet earth. Engaging nose, but fairly fruit dominated. Taste is bright acetic sour, very alive and fresh apricot flavor. The yeast character is also assertive and large. Funky, dirty, earthy. This is big bright and acidic. Nice balance of flavors, more balanced than the nose suggested. Quite puckering. Thanks for sharing this one Chris.

750ml, bottled 21Aug06, with thanks to csbosox! Pours a super cloudy, dirty yellow golden. Nose is lots of apricot, with some sour grape and light funk. Flavor is puckeringly sour, yet retains the apricot and light funk. A bit too much sour pucker for me on this one but still interesting. Thanks for sharing Chris!

Aroma is a bit sulfurous, lots of apricot, and funk and blanket and mineral. Taste is apricot and punchy, blanket, oak, and barnyard. Leaves soft and sweet, but still sour and approachable. Finishes a bit too sweet. Needs some crispness. The wheatiness is still too present in the sweetness. I get a bit more sulfur and cheese out of this. Holy shit, I want some bleu cheese with this. Very stellar. Needs 5 years at least.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2009
Don’t give up after the first whiff or sip. Hazy, light orange coloured body with minimal head. Fairly sour after the first sip and second and third but as you drink more and also let it warm up it really grows on you. Apricot and lemon and a bit of peach in the taste also the funk . Good beer.

jfb (5785) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 28, 2009
(bottle, 2007) pours a hazy golden colour with a foamy white head. zesty, fruity aroma of apricot pulp, straw, candied sugar and barnyard. flavour is sour apricots and light funk with a sweet bready finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation and a tart fruity finish. nicely balanced, not as intensely funky as other examples.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Vintage 2003. Pours a hazy orange golden body with a thin white head. Loads of lemon and lactic acid, its actually a dam big acid bomb, the apricot is very much subdued in the end. I had heartburn by the second sip, i was the only one to finish this, i hope i just had an off bottle or vintage. 3.2 Draft 2010. Pours a hazy golden body with a light bronze body with a scant white head. Mildly tart fruit tones and light wood hints. Fruity with hints of cots and lower acidity then last time. Still not my favorite. 3.8

A nice treat from a recent tasting. Poured a cloudy gold with a white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of tart fruit - apricot. Taste is pretty tart and dry with some other fruit notes coming in. I’m not a big apricot fan (aside from beer) and this has plenty of other complex features to distract the apricot. Mouth is well carbonated and full. FInish is tart.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 21, 2009
Tap @ Akkurat. Nice hazy orange with quickly vanishing white head. Apricot found mainly in aroma, which is sour and fruity. Flavor is mostly sour, as it should be. Crispy feel to go with the sourness. Extra refreshing but leaves your mouth dry and wanting for more. Different but enjoyable.
