Bottle very generously shared by PWoods. Thanks mang!
Pours a very hazy, cloudy light orange in color. There's a nice half inch of white head forming on the pour.
The smell is pungent. Almost to the point of being off-putting. Stanky gym socks, old cheese, and a little bit of earthy skunkyness. The smell is so strong, you begin to question whether or not you want to take a sip of this thing.
Taste is incredible. Very sour/tart. Lip puckering sourness. Very nice apricot and light fruit flavors. Absolutely wonderful.
After time, the smell starts to come around and become much more approachable.
Very puckering tart in the mouthfeel, with the perfect amount of carbonation. This beer is absolutely amazing. I couldn't help but to think how much this compares to Isabelle Proximus with each sip I took.
I'll definitely be buying some of these bottles to throw in the basement. Outstanding.

August 2013 bottling. Teku glass.
A: Pours an apricot-tinted straw color, with a generous finger of fine, foamy off-white head. A solid cap sits on the surface for a good few minutes. Very good clarity and some champagne-like bubbles.
S: Sweet apricot flesh, hay, some nice supporting spice character (oak, cinnamon, and vanilla frosting-like), apple cider, and a moderate dose of earthy barnyard. The apricot is deep and very well integrated, but by no means dominant, which may be a plus or minus.
T: Bretty earthiness up front, with mild apricot, just a touch of tartness, finishing bone dry (with some of the tartness carrying through) with more earth/herbal notes, as is common to Cantillon. The flavors are well integrated and interesting but pretty restrained.
M: Medium body and medium-high, slightly sharp carbonation.
O: Highly drinkable, nice subtle flavors, and good complexity. Though it’s tasty, I don’t quite understand the fascination with this beer. I’d prefer St. Lamvinus or LP Kriek by far.

On-Tap at Northdown Cafe in Chicago
Served in a 10oz snifter
A - Light golden straw color with a little bit of opacity / murkyness. About 2" of Soft fluffy white head
S - Funkyness, a little barnyard, apricot and a nice citrus acidity
T - Nice sour acidity, not too sour though. The fruit is not overpowering, its subtle but nice. Not as amazing as I was let on to believe, although very good.
M - As expected for a lambic, pleasantly fruity, but slightly dry, nicely carbonated.
Overall - I'm very glad to have had the opportunity to try this on tap. This is a world class beer, but I am surprised at how closely this compares to other American sours I have had. I do think this beer is slightly over-hyped after trying it, there are many American Wilds that rival this that aren't in the top 50 IMHO.
