2012 bottle bought at Julio's Liquors, MA. Cork splits but I manage to get it all out without it disintegrating into the beer.

A: Gorgeous head, delightful foam. Below it is very pleasantly honey-colored.

S: The unmistakable Cantillon funky horse blanket is there, but only just. It's far more subtle than the gueuze or kriek. A little touch of sweetness in the aroma, but not much. Beguiling.

T: Only slightly sour, which was surprising. Slightly tart, with a lovely apricot hint. Very well balanced with delicate complexity.

M: Light carbonation, very well matched to the taste.

O: A stunning beer. 750ml of heaven.

Bottled 8/2011
Pours a deep clear golden color with a huge white head that slowly dissipates but remains a cap on the top. The aroma is quite tart with lemons and sour apricots dominating the nose. A solid hit of funk and light plastic phenol round out the nose. The flavor is fruity with apricots with a lemony tartness and hints of sour cherries and plums. A solid hit of horsey funk round out the flavor nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart puckering mouthfeel. I think I'm going to go against the grain on this one a little bit here. This is a fine beer and I enjoyed it, but I can't see what all the hype is behind this one.

2012 release.

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.

Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. No vintage reported. Poured a glowing, full hazy, bright orange with powerful carbonation and a thin but persistent white head leaves swathes of lace. Nose is amazing geuze character: bright citrus, lemons, tropical melons, sweat, salt water. Taste is full sour with amazing fresh fruit character though one specific fruit is impossible to pinpoint. "Apricot" is not necessarily evident as much as some medley of tropical melons and tangerines. Some slight eggy suplhur character comes in and out but does not detract too much from what is a massive lactic body that is zippy on the palate. Very refreshing, very sour. Can’t wait to crack some vintage bottles. 9/20/2010 9/4/8/5/16=4.2

750mL 2011 bottle. The fresher this beer is, the better. More of a juicy Yellow Bus style peach nose with fuzzy skin and rich juice. Taste is not quite as aggressive. Really nice- not one I think is worth to hoard but rather to crack open immediately.
