Poured from a 750ml bottle into a wineglass at the Cantillon Brewery in Brussels.

A= This beer poured a hazed deep gold color and put up a 1" snow white head with every pour. The head dropped relatively quickly but left a nice ring behind.

S= The aroma was about 2/3 sweet apricot over 1/3 lambic character. Very beautiful in the nose.

T= Started off with a burst of sweet apricot flavor before the tart, funky lambic flavors kicked in. Nice dry oak character was present but not overpowering. The balance between sweet fruit and the sour character was just perfect. Finished bone dry and puckery, which inspired the next sip every time.

MF= Light body with a nice dry feel. Prickly carbonation was just right.

D= Off the charts delicious and drinkable. Rivaled the best sours I have ever tasted and one that I will be seeking out again and again.

What i really have to wrote here os that i am a sour hater. Is was at the Borefts beerfestival two weeks ago where Cantillon was with some brews. Had some sips of a glass from a friend. Not my thing....

This is a typical Cantillon brew. It comes a little yellow and a little murky due to the apricots. It is nicely carbonated. The aroma and taste have all the Cantillon goodness, though as usual this holds not true for every palate. The aroma is sublime like smelling a crate of ripe apricots. Later also the typical Cantillon lambic aromas kick in. Taste is a little more tart and less fruity than the aroma but still very much apricot. This is a great Cantillon with sublime fruitiness, if you can get this fresh.

From a bottle at Ebenezer's, not sure of the vintage.

Hazy peach-skin orange with a 1-finger or so white head that retains well. Amazing smell, pure fresh apricot pulp with some funk there as well. Taste has nice apricot/peach, not over the top but definitely not subdued at all. Funk and oak are there but kinda take a backseat, some lemon, bread/yeast and white wine notes there too. Smooth mouthfeel, not crazy sour, one of the more drinkable and fruit-forward Cantillon's I've had so far.

I got a pretty small pour of this and it was gone pretty quickly. Glad to have tried this, I'd like to be able to sit down with a bottle sometime.

Pours a lighter gold with lots of bubbles and a small wispy head.

Smells like ripe peaches with some barnyard funk going on as well.

Very light and crisp taste. Lots of smooth peach flavors balanced nicely by the yeast. Finishes with a slight tartness. Fantastic.

Light bodied with higher carbonation levels.

Been wanting to get one of these for a while and was not disappointed. One of the better ones I've had.
