Really liked this beer.

Pours a nice gold beer. Nice head. Smells like funky yeast, apricots. Taste is really nice. This is the best apricot/peach beer I've had. It not only tastes like apricot, but it also tastes like apricot pits. The flavor is very intense. Body is on the thick side due to apricot puree (my guess).

4.5 Overall due to bottle variation. Some bottles are 5's, some are 4.5's.

750ml bottle 5,0% Abv.
Served chilled in a wine glass
Bottled in Oct 2013

Appearance: Vigneronne pours a lightly clouded bright golden-yellow with streaks of orange. A rough pour yields a small white head that fizzes away pretty quickly and doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. 4

Smell: Mmmm, this smells fantastic. The nose is chock full of fantastic Cantillon funk, with a touch of fruity grape that grows as the beer warms. Notes include: Musty basements, dry grass, old hay, some wood, lemon, tannic grape skins and tart white grape. 4.75

Taste: The flavour isn't quite as tart as I expected, but is nonetheless delicious. There is a moderate tart white grape character , combining with grape skins, a floral/medowy character, mustiness, green apple, lemon, some vinegar, dry grass and a little white wine. 4.25

Mouthfeel: The body is fuller than light and fairly typical for a fruited lambic, while the carbonation is of a lower level. 4.5

Overall: Another great fruit lambic from Cantillon and one I will buy whenever I get the chance. 4.5
