750ml bottle from the 2011 vintage. Fresh bottle with the organic flower on it. Euro version. Opened this one up with vacax and jerz. Thanks for the tasting, again.
A - Light orange with one finger head and perfect retention. There were bubbles on the bottom of the glass. Slightly cloudy with a bit of chill haze.
S - Nose is all apricot and bacterial sourness. A touch of table sugar. Not very cheesy or funky. Really nice.
T - Taste is quite sour and very fruit forward. It's interesting how such a perfect balance could be attained. For one of the most sour beers I've had, this has tons of apricot flavor. Sourness and sweetness are perfectly in harmony. Acidity is quite high, but it's dangerously drinkable.
M - Mouthfeel is a touch thin but not watery. Carbonation is moderate and good for the style.
O - Glad I was able to procure so many bottles of this online. It's amazing and I don't think I will be trading any of these away.

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.
