Bottle. Creamy off-white but very quickly disappearing head. Hazy orange body with lots of yeast sediments. Oranges grapefruit acidic aroma. Powerful vinegar grapefruit not just acidic but in fact sharp and sour fruity flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste. DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2008

(3/11/08) Bottle at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Bottled in 2006. Slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of apricots, bretty funk and some citrus. Very dry sour flavor with some apricots and some lemon in the finish. Medium-bodied. Very good. 7/4/8/3/15=3.7
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 Bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy orange gold with disappearing head. Yep, it’s got apricot on aroma, with some funk. Pretty well carbonated. It’s an odd mix of sweet apricot fruit and a full on dry sharp lemony lambic. The aroma is what? Funk and sweet apricot. Really acidic sharp finish. Not sure that I like it that much. Nice in mouthfeel with sharp stewed apple. Very dry on end. Well made, nothing wrong with it, but not for me. 2.6/5 previous rating was from when I was an idiot. On tap at Borefts 2014. Amazing love the fruit and sourness. Just beautiful. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Clear golden body with a medium frothy white head. Yeasty aroma wtih apricot, fruit and lots of horseblanket. Very sour apricot flavor with fruit and some horseblanket. Very light body with moderately high carbonation. DenverLogan (1213) - LA, California, USA - MAR 10, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 I’ve tried this many times, generally with some years of aging. Yeah...this is the bomb I’ve had many Cantillon’s and been to the brewery, and this apricot funky sour masterpiece and the Lou Pepe fruity concoctions rock Cloudy copper-apricot. Giant aroma of sour, funky apricot. Taste is mouth puckering but delicious in the sour arena ... barnyard and horse blanket, acidic, apricot and other tart fruits with just enough sweetness to keep it intriguing. Ages well.

bottled in 2004, drunk in march 2008. pours a hazy cloudy straw honey color, with a thin white head that fades quickly. oh my what a smell! abundant sour apricot--dominating, but not overpowering--sour funky cantillon yeast, lemon zest, and a very light honey malt. very light apricot taste, some lemon, some pale malt, but oh dear me that’s sour! some grapey notes kick in here and there as well, maybe some grass and some must and some vinegar. finshes, guess what? sour! light sweetness, i’d call it dry, but my mouth waters so much after that it’s hard to tell. very acidic. light body, with a great texture from the carbonation. great stuff. the apricots are there in just the right abundance, and there’s a ton of acidity and sourness, but enough complexity to keep it from being one-dimensional. i put a lot of money into it, but i’m quite glad i did. the smell reminds me of the trolli gummy hamburger buns, if anyone knows what i mean.

Bottle 75 cl. Small white head, deep orange/yellow colour. Good looking. Nice aroma of apricots. The flavour is very acidic/sour but is some how balanced by some sweetness in the finish. Jerre (3386) - Waregem, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2008

Pours a hazy peach color with a white head. Aroma is fruity, cheesy, funk, brett, and some oak. Flavor is fruity, malty, funky, cheesy, with a dry fruity tart finish. Another good beer from Cantillon but not my favorite. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma is tart and lactic, with nice accent form the apricot. Flavor is very tart, making my lips pucker. Apricot is present only in the background. Long, dry, tart finish. Great Lambic.
