A friend brought this over to our place as part of an epic tasting on Saturday. Thanks Jason! Following review based on notes taken at that time.
4oz. sample poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Hazy, straw yellow body with a loose, fizzy, white crown. Nice retention.
Smell: Squashed, overripe, apricots. Nothing else. This is the most pure apricot smell I've encountered since my childhood, when we'd have cardboard boxes of apricots sitting on our back porch in Fresno. Transcendental!
Taste: Apricots and lemon juice are the only two flavors that really come to mind. Sweetness appears at the onset of each sip, but heavy-handed tartness and acidity quickly take over afterward. If you're a sour lover, this one's for you!
Mouthfeel: Very tart and acidic, so much so that it's tough to pick apart the rest of this beer's attributes. Moderate-to-high carbonation, I think, with a light body.
Overall: Epic. Certainly one of the best sours/lambics I've ever had, and one of the best smelling beers I've ever encountered as well. This beer deserves it's reputation. Track it down!

Glad I was able to cross this off my list. Thank's Cory!
Pours a slightly hazy, almost milky, orange hue. It's really resembles peaches. There is an of white head that sits around a half finger size for the entire drink. Tart, acidic, funky, unripe fruits on the nose. You can tell it's going to be delicious. It tastes similar to the nose with a slightly sharper carbonation than I'm used to with other Cantillon beers. You could close your eyes and take a sip and feel like someone liquified the skin of a peach. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect. I would like it just a tad more creamy, and a tad less sharp. This is one of those beers that deserve the hype. It's worth it.
