750 ml bottled 8/30/13
Hazy golden color - hard to judge in the dim bar lights. Retains a ring of lacing on the glass.
Smells of fresh, sweet apricot and lemon, musty earth; sour
Taste is layered; fresh, juicy apricot, a bright lemony zing, moderate earthy funk. Fairly sour with only a touch of vinegar. The finish is long...the apricot keeps going ending in a very dry, slightly tannic and bitter end note. The apricot is integral; it adds so much but it never overshadows the underlying complexities of the lambic.
Mouthfeel is creamy; fairly active carbonation.
Overall: Incredible. This beer has so much to offer but so easy to drink. It's an intense sensory experience but has many subtleties to explore. One of the best beers I've had. Extremely expensive to order at a restaurant in NYC but worth every penny.

750ml bottled August 30th, 2013. Served in a Cantillon lambic glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange color with 1+ finger of a white soapy head that settles to a thick collar. Body is hazy but still translucent with some moderate visible carbonation.
Smell: Apricot, citrus, oak, barnyard funk, some acidity, apple skins with a slight herbal/earthy quality.
Taste: Lots of juicy apricot, mild funk, oak, lacto and some faint hints of lemon and green apple. Finishes dry with a lingering apricot finish and a mild lingering bitterness. Sourness is medium and a bit more restrained than some other Cantillon offerings.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with medium spritzy carbonation and a nice soft mouthfeel. Incredibly high drinkability.
Overall: Another really good offering from Cantillon. I can see why this is so sought after. I didn't find it to be the mind blowing experience I've seen it described as, but that's not to say it isn't excellent or worth seeking out.

My first Cantillon! Finally. Large format bottle from Tipples, capped and corked, with an Aug 30, 2013 bottling date. Cracked Feb 9, 2014. Pours into my tulip hazy apricot yellow with a very large fluffy and fizzy white head that dissipates relatively quickly. Aroma of apricots, lacto, yeast funk, dusty dryness. This smells both mouthpuckeringly dry and sour. Flavor is apricots up front and tart lemons, with another punch of sour in the middle. Finishes dry but soft with oak and apricots lingering with an extra lacto sour punch. Light bodied with medium to high carbonation. A yummy sour beer with lots to like. The fruit really comes out as this warms a bit so make sure not to drink it too cold. Keeps improving as I go here. very nice. Looking forward to trying my Kriek now.
