750 mL bottle, 2012, poured into a snifter
A- A hazy golden copper color with a two finger white head.
S- Wow, apricots, barnyard funk, sour.
T- Sour! Apricots and more apricots, lemon, funky finish, touch of oak.
M- Smooth, crisp, light body, dry finish.
O- A fantastic lambic with plenty of apricot and very sour. Pricey but worth every penny, I can't wait until I get to try this again. Could be more complex, but with how fruity and sour this is it work.

Bottled 28 August 2012
Appearance is at first fizzy settling into a golden orange with only a wisp of foam.
Smell is dank and deep. Obvious apricot with only a hint of sour if you search for it.
Taste starts bright on the tongue followed by a wave of apricot nectar and then perfectly balances sweet and sour at the end. Somewhat dry, the fruit acidity leaves the mouth watering for more.
Mouthfeel is a bit slicker and chewer than I expected, in a good way.
Overall this is an easy review...two words sum up this beer: well-crafted and delicious.

Bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. A hazy orange golden beer with a moderate white head. The aroma is very fruity, filled with peach and apricots and a clear sourness. The taste is very well balanced and very fruity (apricots, peach, a touch of citrus). This is a wonderful lambic, near to perfection and a must drink for every lambic lover.

Big thanks to Lauren for sharing this at a tasting!
A: pours a cloudy golden color with fine bubbles coming through, but not much head, and no retention.
S: bright smelling with lemon, apricot, and peach. Some good funk is in there, but it doesn't come through too much.
T: again with a slight funk, but mostly sourness and fruit flavors like peach and apricot. The acidity is delicious, but certainly not the most sour out there. Barely a hint of sweetness.
M: bright, acidic, thin but coats the mouth well so that you can feel it for a while.
O: most excellent lambic, so happy to have tried this finally. It's not overwhelmingly flavorful, but delicious and balanced for my tastes.
