On tap at Brouwer's on 5/26/11 poured into champagne glass.
A: Pours a cloudy light orange color with thin white head, no lacing left around glass.
S: Really bright with ripe, tart apricots in the forefront, some funk, earthy and citrus notes are detectable beneath the powerful apricot aroma.
T: This is fantastic, really tart with lots of fruit from the apricots, sour with not much sweetness. Like the aroma there are some funky and earthy flavors that go along perfectly with the tart fruit. My favorite lambic I have had to date.
M: Very tart with moderate carbonation, finishes pretty dry.
O: I really love this, the apricot goes along perfectly with all the funky, earthy flavors and sourness of the lambic. Absolutely delicious and highly drinkable, another incredible creation from Cantillon.

Pours a golden orange honestly it is the color of an apricot. The beer has a big head that leaves some lace. The aroma is lots of barn-yardiness, but with a lot of apricot fruitiness in there as well with some both clean and dirty laundry. The flavor smacks you in the face right away with apricot, fresh, delicious apricots. The beer is very very sour. It's also really dry with a dryness akin to say a brut. The fruitiness continues with some lemon rind earthy on sour notes. Dominantly this beer is packed with sourness and apricot flavor. The palate is fizzy but remarkably full and easy to drink. Just one damn fine beer.
