Pours a beautiful translucent straw-orange, with a fluffy white head. Kind of an apricot color, obviously. Nice lacing.
Smell is really big juicy, kind of peachy. Really big smell, don't need to lean towards the glass at all to get it. A bit of funk, but really the fruit takes center stage. This is unbelievable smelling, though. Apricot, peach, a bit of apple, slight funk and hay. Delicious. I want to live in this smell forever.
Taste is very similar. A bit lighter on the apricot and a bit bigger on the funk. Still, it's not very sour. It's got a nice tartness, but not much mouth puckering. Apricot is big upfront, gives way to lemon and granny smith in the middle and some funk in the finish. Really delicious.
Mouthfeel is fantastic. Light, dry, well carbonated. Goes down very smooth.
This is absolutely fantastic. Just delicious, and crazy drinkable. Putting down a 750 of this is no problem at all. Like a delicious apricot mimosa. Drink this.

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.
