Draft at Max’s. Hazy hay colored pour with little carbonation and thin sliver of a head. Vinegar funk and yeast on the nose. Sour and fruity. Very dry and sour flavor. Tart with a touch of fruit on the fnish. Crisp and refreshing. Very enjoyable lambic. mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Draft at Max’s Belgian fest poured straw color. Great yeasty aroma with slight fruit. A bit of apricot in the flavor. Also, reminds me of sour lemonade. Nice lambic. bconley (352) - Fern Park, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Draft at Redlight. This is WAY too easy to drink. Really nice. Sour and tart. Light body. Not terribly sure what apricot is supposed to smell like, but I liked the way this smells. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2011 Thanks to whoever shared this at the sexual chocolate release. Hazy bright gold pour with thin fizzy off white head. Apricot aroma. Leather, horse blanket, apricot, and mango. Very tart, dry, crisp and refreshing Betty (236) - Walgett, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2009
Beautiful very hazy appearance. Stinks of apricots left out in a puddle. The label is for sure my favourite label ever - a moonscape with an apricot planet rise! Very similar to their Geuze to taste but with some very obvious apricot. Another fantastic intervention from the masters. Oh - this stuff is available at Plonk in Canberra - too great! Thanks guys.

750ml bottle 2007 vintage $22. Beautiful golden color, hazy. It smells like apricot or peach pits, slight bit of hay, really excellent aroma. Taste is sour apricots, peaches, lemon. Very sour but it doesn’t get in the way at all, delicious flavor. The apricot aroma is really my favorite part about this beer but overall this is probably the best Cantillon I have had thus far.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. Cloudy orange pour with little to no head. Sour vinegar, sour apple, dry tart aroma. Sour apple vinegar dry tart taste. Very mouth puckering sour. While I am not a fan of this style, very well done. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a headless blonde. Aroma is much like Cantillon’s gueuze, funky, tart, didn’t pick up much hint of the apricots. In flavor, tart, sour, apricot comes through towards the end of the palate, some hints of fruit pits. Dry and puckering. Not as much depth as the gueuze, but excellent. darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Draft at Redlight Redlight. HUGE thanks to Brent for getting this what I am guessing was pretty expensive keg. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Nose is sour apples, mangos, peaches and apricots. The flavor profile is very complex. Tart up front with some hay, funk, lemon juice and mouth puckering sour finish with the apricot coming through at the very end. Expertly crafted. This is the most sour Cantillion I’ve had. BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Draft at Redlight REdlight. I truly did NOT want to try this as I am NOT a fan of sours. THe pour on this was very nice. Murky peach pink color. The aroma was actually very nice, kind of like sour apples and sweet tarts. The flavor was very tart and tangy. Almost reminded me of fruit spoiling. I am still not a fan, however, this one, if tried regularly, could have probably converted me.
