Excellent to see a 75 cl bottle of this bad boy on a Bruges beer menu for just a hair over 10 euro on a November visit. Convinced the wife she needed to try this vs. always getting the raspberry she loves so much.

A-Bottled 28 Aug 12, this beer pours dirty golden with a ringing of white foam with a lot of lively carbonation.
S-That typical Cantillon smell-funky. Aromas of barnyard, horseblanket, just a very subtle hint of apricot. Not as much fruit aroma as you get in the kriek or rose.
T-Very tart-the sourness definitely hits you up front. The apricots are there in the finish but as in the aroma they are quite weak, in a fresh bottle I expected more.
M-Typical Cantillon
O-Yes definitely a Cantillon beer and no doubt fans of the brewery will like this brew but for my money I think either the standard gueuze or a rose de gambrinus is just as enjoyable if you are looking for eithe a straight gueuze or a fruit lambic and don't see the hype associated with this beer...other than it is hard to get.

'13 tastes like a moldy, juice-soaked carpet, but '12 and '14 are on point. DON'T AGE THIS BEER. Your enamel will thank you

750ml bottle poured into my cantillon glass .

A - Poured with a good white head which then dissipated over time to reveal a cloudy apricot colour liquid.

S - A funky sour smell . I get a nice apricot smell.

T- Insanely sour on the first sip but this really grows on you with each sip thereafter. I nearly cant taste any apricots because of the sourness

M - Very smooth mouthfeel that is very dry.

D - for me à little bit to sour , but its à awesome brew

Appearance: muddy light golden brown, with a small white head, thick, broken lace, and a modest scattering of foam on the surface.

Aroma: Tart aroma of vinegar, sharp cheese, sour hay, and earth. While this sounds unappealing, it is not, somehow.

Taste: Profoundly sour, puckering, and astonishingly dry. Somewhat like lemon juice, and white wine vinegar, with earthy notes thrown in. Nonetheless, the reaction to this cornucopia of typically unappealing flavors is to take another sip. The finish is very, very tart, with a ghostly herbal hop presence. The apricot notes are present, but quite subtle.

Mouth feel: Smooth, very soft, pleasant, almost unexpectedly so,

Drinkability/notes: Like blue cheese, most definately an acquired taste, but once acquired, there is a profound attraction. A beer and a style that must not be missed. A friend commented that is very much like a Brut Champagne. Discarding one's preconcieved notions of beer is the best way to experience a lambic for the first time.
