Poured at the Brussels beer fest in August 2017. This is the 2017 vintage (not refermented). Pours a golden yellow, which is opaque. Surprisingly little carbonation, although that could have been the pour. Nose is peaches, smooth, creamy, slight caramel, and orange creamsicle. Taste is sooo smooth. Peaches, slight sourness, a bit of funk, and quite sticky. Citrus peel is there, but not prominent. Almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy. Overall, an amazing beer.

2016 bottle at Cantillon Brewery in Brussels, Belgium.

Clear yellow-light amber appearance with a big amount of light foam head upon pour. Aroma is wonderful! Aprical galore and there's no mistaking it. If you like apricots, this will deliver on the smell AND taste. Apricot's are abundant with mild barnyard funkiness as well. Sour as well but not overly tart, and very mildly sweet. Out of all the Cantillon beers I've had, this one is the most sour to me. Feel is mostly smooth with a mild sour bite at the end. This totally lives up to the hype and is one of my favorite sours, not just from Cantillon but in general.

Well this is my official 1000 beer rated and I saved this gem for this occasion

2016 vintage drank from tulip
Look: beautiful hazy golden yellow color with a 1 inch white Champaign type head
Smell: a ton of apricot, some earthyness and funk throughout
Taste: it's the perfect blend of funk/sourness and amazing fresh apricot... the apricot is all ways present and delicious
Feel: amazingly drinkable, semi dry, medium carbonation and a light yet full body

Overall this is a real gem... insane flavors and complexities... a must try for any beer lover.

This was an absolute delight. So much apricot, glad I got this on tap as it tastes extremely fresh. The smell is incredible and it's super tart. It leaves a bit of a sour aftertaste but it doesn't linger for too long.
