Another thanks to rudzud. Batch 1 , 2010

No head, hazy golden peach color.

Nose fresh apricot, nice funky sour lacto like funk, generic tart sour fruit and light berry notes, little stone fruit and put.

Taste semi sweet to start, then quickly turns to acidic funk, tart sour wild funk, stone fruit and little apricot like fruit, juicy bit sour. Nice juicy fruit with light bitterness. Finish is sticky little flemmy, mild acidic tart and mild stone fruit.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb, little acidic bite.

Overall pretty nice, tart lambic with little stone fruit and nice acidity, tasty beer.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear straw hue with a thin quarter inch head that leaves light halo.

S - Aromas of apricot and pit, nice light funk, definitely sour.

T - Taste is pleasantly sour, nice stone fruit, nice nice light apricot, good funk, light vanilla, barrel, really good sour tart funk.

M - Mouthfeel Is nice and crisp. Pleasant.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty. Nice and old and drinkable. Delicious.

Thanks to Lauren for the share.
This had to follow De Garde's Imperial Apricot Bu, so it had rough competition.

Golden-orange pour, moderately hazy, with a foamy cap of white head that fizzled out and held at a ring, leaving some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma of wet wood, stone fruit, soured grains, light funk. Taste of toasted grains up front, biscuity malts, woody, herbal, apricot was there, but not in a huge way, not very sour or sweet, just kind of benign, with a fruity essence, and a slight grassy funk. Light-medium body, crisp, dry. Drinkable enough, but a bit lacking in flavor.

what a beer, almost as sour as the mother funker, seriously puckery stuff here. pours a lackluster pale greyish yellow color, dense straw looking and sort of bland, with a head that bubbles a little on the pour but never amounts to anything. it smells sour as hell, lactic acid is all I really get. a touch of summer peachy pollen maybe, but that's all. at first all I taste is long, its all day long, I mean, five minutes from sip to finish, constantly changing, never dry like I expected and sort of hoped it would be. I get a bit of apricot in the middle there, all fuzzy and little and a tad under ripe, but the sourness and acidity takes over before I can really appreciate this. to be fair, its a 2012 vintage, and may have soured quite a lot since its release. I will have to try the peche to compare, but I have a feeling this is just an in your face sour bomb. I didn't dislike it at all, but its drinkability it limited for obvious reasons and both claystation and I forced the last of this bomber down. good work if you can get it, a front of tongue sour for the ultimate challenge. just good to me though, not stand out aside from its sourness.
