Thanks to Aaron and Paul who opened bottles with me recently. Review from notes.

A: Pours a golden peach color with a small white head on top that leaves a thin ring on top. Minimal lacing, very thin on the glass.

S: Great combination of tartness and light peaches and apricots. There is a little bit of lemon and oak with a bit of mustiness. Smells fantastic.

T: Great tartness, not overly sharp though. More apricot and peach with a little lemon and white grape underneath. A little bit of funk mixed in.

M: Light to medium bodied, extremely easy drinking.

O: Glad to have finally tried this one, was definitely a treat, and one of my favorite beers.

Bottle shared with Damico at Torst. Pours a pale orange yellow color with white foam head. Aroma of peach, funk, and slight vinegar. Has a sweet tart taste with gentle notes of peaches and perfect foamy mouthfeel. Great body for the style. A big thanks to Damico and a great day.

Brewed aug 25, 2011. Poured into Duvel tulip glass on Jan 22, 2012.
Re reviewed 2nd bottle from same brew date on March 31, 2013

Appearance 3.5/4
Hazy honey yellow with a ¾ inch of an effervescent white head.

Aroma 3.5/ 4.5
Mild sour lemony funk, with notes of sweeter candied apricot. As it warms up, more fruit; but not that overall aromatic with regards to fruit aspect

Second bottle I tried had much more intense apricot aroma with still aspects of funk notable.

Taste 4/ 4.5
Relatively moderate sourness with undertones of lemon and some mild earthy funk. Finishes with a very tart aftertaste. Don’t get a lot of fruit, just a hint of sweetness midway through on the palate.

Sruprisingly second bottle had much more apricot presence even though drank at a much later date. Definitely way more enjoyable and more of what I expected.

Mouthfeel 4.5/ 4.5
Moderate carbonation. The beer is moderate to high sourness with fair amount of puckering ability.

Overall 4.5/ 5
Presentation is clean, somewhat crisp. However, I was expecting more from this, based on the hype. The apricot presence is very subdued with my first bottle, but way more fruitiness in second bottle. That being said I found this beer very easy to drink and enjoyable.
1st bottke-But not my favour Cantillon offering. Also given the price ($28 Canadian), I’m not sure if I would seek out again, given that I could find other offerings.
Consider trying.

2nd- significantly better experience strangely. Now u understand the hype as this bottke had great sourness but also tins if apricot flavor. Definitely wish I had more.
Higky recommend
