A: pours light yellow with a big head. Head dissipates slowly and leaves lacing on the glass.
Ar: fruity and sour dominate. Apricots are unmistakable.
T: apricot fruit and sourness dominate the flavor. Possibly the best sour beer I have ever tasted in my life. The perfect mix of sour tartness with fruity sugar to create an amazingly balanced experience.
M: very effervescent. Bubbly on the palate makes an otherwise thin beer more full bodied.
O: amazing. Had this beer at the brewery which only added to the overall experience. Love it. Balanced yet nuanced. Every sip presents something new.

4.29/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.
