Just had this beer 2011 vintage 750ml and boy was I impressed with this one. Now I know why people are always looking for it. This beer pours a beautiful orangish color with a small white head. The head was the only part I was expecting more from. The smell is huge vibran apricots up front followed by a tart funky slightly barnyard smell. The flavor is again huge on ripe apricots with a nice sourness and funk in the finish. Not to acidic just right on the acidity. The mouthfeel is light and juicy with the apricot flavors well carved and overall an amazing lambic. Just outstanding.

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.
