Poured a corked and capped 750ml into a Cantillon tumbler. This beer pours a ultra hazy Orange with a 2 inch cap that quickly disappears into just a thin line around the inside of the glass. Just a hint of soapy lacing lazily slides down the inside of the glass. The aroma is funk and apricot. Wet grass and damp earth. Grapefruit pith layer with apricots. Fantastic stuff. The flavor is spot on apricots. Underneath is lambic funk. Old closets with damp earth. Citrus pith with crab oranges. All wrapped up with fresh apricot. The mouthfeel is spot on. Fresh and crisp and finishes bone dry. Cantillon really knows how to make faNtastic beer. I truly wish I could buy this year round.

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.
