UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Oh sweet Jesus. Bubblegum, apricot , candy. Just vivid. Unlike anything I’ve smelled before. Murky unfiltered gold. Unassuming. Puckering sour apricot, slight vinous wood, sweetness after the swallow. Just an amazing beer, but yoi already knew.....

From a shared bottle at the brewery. Pours a hazy, dull gold color, with a small, bubbly head. Bright apricot aromas, with some leather, cardamom, flowers, and butterscotch. Sweet and fruity, with just a light tart flavor. Light body, acidic, crisp, and clean. This is a lovely lambic. Just enough fruit, without being overbearing. Delicious.

beskid (271) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2017
2017 edition on tap at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Aroma is light sour, barnyard, apricot, gooseberry. Taste is sour at first, then sweeter with every sip, apricots come out and balance greatly the rest. Some light herbal-woody notes in the end.

Pours a hazy orange yellow color. Notes of apricots, champagne vinegar, faint funk, yarn, and something green.

samsomuk (121) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2017
Keg at Moor Beer Co, Bristol on Zwanze Day. Pours a hazy gold with slim white head. Aromas of funky farmhouse with plenty of apricot. On the taste it's tart yet incredibly fresh with gooseberry, lemon with more apricot. Light bodied, fine carbonation, dry & fruity finish. Presumably the 2017 batch, it was tasting great

beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2017
Restrained stone fruit sour aroma in a hazy golden pour. Surprisingly sour given the massive apricot treatment (300g/l?) but subtle hints of rich fruit take the edge off in the end.

explosivedog (1508) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 On tap at Carwyn Cellars. Pours gold. Apricot, white wine vinegar, sweet apricot syrup, little herbal, minerally, peach skins. Nicely carbonated. Incredible.

Stoned99 (1650) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
750ml 2014 bottle shared at epic Cantillon tasting. Aroma: apricot, peaches, nice citrus. Stone fruits. App: orange, medium white head leaving great lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, juicy, fruity, dry acidity finish. Overall: just amazing! I'm in love. This is so good! Juicy fruity sour. This is mind blowing. Extraordinary.

Troebel goudblond/perzikkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: fruitig, gist, een weinig brett, perzik op sap. Smaak: licht zoet, fruitig, perzik, zacht zurig. Mooi in balans. Matige koolzuurprikkel. Lekker!
