Glad I was able to cross this off my list. Thank's Cory!

Pours a slightly hazy, almost milky, orange hue. It's really resembles peaches. There is an of white head that sits around a half finger size for the entire drink. Tart, acidic, funky, unripe fruits on the nose. You can tell it's going to be delicious. It tastes similar to the nose with a slightly sharper carbonation than I'm used to with other Cantillon beers. You could close your eyes and take a sip and feel like someone liquified the skin of a peach. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect. I would like it just a tad more creamy, and a tad less sharp. This is one of those beers that deserve the hype. It's worth it.

A-Pours a milky peach juice color, almost like a Bellini. Head is a frothy mass of yellowish suds.

S-Apricots almighty. It smells funky and tart but there is also a bit of fruity sweetness as well. Dried oak which makes me think of aged white wine.

T-Puréed apricots that are both incredibly tart and lightly sweet. Sour! Overripe apricot, underripe apricot and perfect apricot. Hay and dried out grass. Funky pale fruit. Highly acidic with some malt vinegar flavors. Excellent.

M-Creamy but yet still light. Puckering sourness that sticks to the tongue. Endless aftertaste. High acidity. Tannic.

O-I can see why this beer is so highly sought after. Easily one of the top three Lambics I have tried. What a goddamn treat to try this beer. An beer that can absolutely change the way anyone views beers, regardless of their previous experiences.
