Had on tap at Ebenezer's Belgian fest. One of teh 3or 4 beers I took notes on before things got out of hand.
Poured into an Eb's snifter a pale yellow with some slight haze and a thin, quickly dissapating head. Aroma is definite Cantillon tart, sour fruit with some definite funk in there. FLavor is of the tartest apricots I could ever imagine. THis one is one of the most puckering beers I have ever tried. Very dry and refreshing, though. One is an experience. Interesting and very good lambic.

Rate from 2009.

2009 bottle served in a white wine glass at room temp. Pours a nice, slight thick orange-gold with a thin ring of white bubbles persisting. Beautiful nose full of peaches, apricots, slight funky brett. Really round in the nose. Like most Cantillon, it's fairly bracing and hard in the mouth. Really big peach, apricot presence. Full and round, vinous and white wine like. The fruit is great at this age, but a hard, slightly metallic age tells me this one would likely get better with some years on it. Very enjoyable, kinda like a slightly more acidic Duck Duck Gooze.

A - Poured into a snifter glass a hazy orange hued golden with a centimetre of white head that falls away fairly quickly.
S - Brett/barnyard funk with a vauge, but noticeable apricot underlaying.
T - Apricot with a lot of brett & barnyard character.
M - Light bodied, medium to high carbonation. Quite a mouth puckering, sour tartness.
D - Not something I'd drink heaps of but something I'd want to have on hand every now and then.
