2010 vintage poured on tap at hamiltons tavern. Pours a nice, golden staw color, hazy, no head. Only a few specks of foam hang around. Nose has soft apricots, belgian yeast esters, hay, and a pinch of sweet fruity candy. On the tongue it follows suit, sour apricots, dry, yeasty, in the middle thru the end Im reminded of an easy saison. Finishes with a dry champange feel. Although not very heady, lots of carb bubbles come thru in the mouth. No bite. Not overly sour, only slightly puckering. I am very excited to have tried this. It has been a huge want for me and it makes me even more anxious to land a bottle of it. Thanks santa.

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.
