2009 bottling. 9,0% alc/vol. 750ml brown bottle shared with friends. Clear amber with a white head. I really like this peachy nose, apricot candy. Some acidity on the nose. The fuzzy peach taste is very interesting. Easy drinking, light and refreshing. This is a classic to be, way better than the kriek.

(Vintage 2009) Une mousse vanescente sur un liquide la robe cuivre et lgrement voile. Un nez bien construit, la fois souple et percutant. Des parfums dabricot et de fruits tropicaux au profil lgrement suret. Une prsence feutre de notes rustiques. Un souffle charg de douceur. Des saveurs agrables, un rappel de lt dans cette mer de neige. Des fruits du verger et des fruits tropicaux. Des fleurs touches par les microbes. Des notes surettes, lactiques et boises touches par des notes douces. Un rel plaisir. Une bouche de moyenne dimension avec une effervescence juste et une texture lgre. Une finale parfume par les abricots et les fleurs surettes.

Tap at Cascade. Pours to a golden body with a white head. Aroma of sour apricots and tang. The flavor is most definitely earthy apricots with a crisp sour kick. Sweet tangerines. The palate is nicely crisp and sour. Subtle oak.

blomster (289) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle, 2009 vintage. Big gusher. Murky amber pour, fluffy white head. Aroma of citrusy brett, mint, flowers, fruit. Taste of sour apricots, tropical fruits. Sour finish, but still quite sweet. A really good sour, too bad a bit was lost to the angels due to the gushing bottle.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Pours a copper orange color with a thin white head and a decent lace left behind. The nose is overly sweet and simple seeming a touch artificial. Candied sugars and spearamint tickle the nose as appricots take over and dominate. The taste is sugary and minty, lots of appricot roll over the tongue. Very little integration as the mint, sugars, and fruit dont seem to have a defined roll. This is overly sweet with a creamy syrupy feel, prickly carbonation in the back, and a touch wet and oily.

Silphium (3196) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Murky medium orange body, just a few cream-colored bubbles at the surface. Beautiful apricot nose, funky, earthy and fleshy with bitter pit too. Pulpy, tart apricot puree body, sour, sharp, tart, and funky. The sour bite accentuates the apricot. Very nice.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2011
2009 vintage, watch for gushing. Rusty golden color, darker belgian. Aromas are faint apricot, some sweeter sugar notes. Palate right off the palate is sour up front, but the apricot fruit flavor is not overpowering, not cloying or sweet, a bit big in the finish. The sour edge goes down as you continue to sip, and more of the apricot shines through. Very full bodied. I think however is that this could use more time to get even better.

On tap at Cascade Tasting Room with mcberko. Pours a clear golden yellow/light orange. Aroma of apricot, with slight tartness. Flavour of sour apricots, tart, chardonnay, orange zest, and some soap. Dry, tart, really nice.

mcberko (16598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at Cascade Tasting Room, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of pretty much only apricot and some tartness. Flavour is immensely complex -- where to start -- apricot, tangerine peel, chardonnay, lemon zest and a soapy quality. Finishes dry, zesty and soapy. Very intriguing.
