A treat to experience on tap @ Spuyten D. in Bklyn. as part of their Yeast fest of a week ago. Pours soft, cloudy tangerine, with a minimal off white head, with minor lacing. Funky, fruity nose. Moderatly sour brew with a slight nod in the flavor profile to the adertised apricots. Long lasting sour/bret notes linger and linger in the mouth. Pleasantly sour and soft. Very tasty stuff, delicate and complex on tap. World class lambic, go get some.

A 25cl pour into a La Chouffe tulip glass, consumed at Belmont Station's unofficial PuckerFest in July 2007 (from notes which I just rediscovered).

A: Hazy, golden honey/orange, with a healthy amount of small carbonation crawling up the curving glass. Initially almost 1-finger of fizzy snow-white head, fading quickly to a thin ring and scattering of swirling film.

S: Quite tart aroma, musty and full of pithy citrus. The sweet/sour apricot smell builds and rises with each swirl of the glass. Smells a little dirty and earthy, very fitting for a tart lambic from the masters at Cantillon. One either loves or hates this fragrance; personally I couldn't get enough of this funky, yet mouth-watering, nose-tickler.

T: Bracingly tart/sour at first, filled with lemon and apricot and a undertone of musty natural yeastiness. A pleasantly light sugar sweetness trails down the back, lending a nice balance to the otherwise harsh tartness. Hints of woodiness in the lengthy finish.

M: Surprisingly low carbonation in the mouth, this is smooth and even somewhat viscous. Leaves a coating and acidic tanginess, which keeps the tongue curling and the saliva flowing.

D: A wonderful sipping lambic, with a bold tartness in aroma and flavor and long-lasting memorable mouthfeel. A little like a quenching, pucker-inducing lemonade, ideal for a summery day. Low ABV at 5%, but this isn't really a style you'd want to drink much of. Expensive ($6 for this pour) but worth it, and one I'd love to have again. Recommended!

From tasting notes when I had this on draft. Pours a hazy yellow, orange color without much head at all. The aroma is bright stone fruit and lemon. Not getting the funk I expected. Taste is bright, tart lemon with apricots, more earthy than funky. Mouth feel is medium bodied and crisp making this very drinkable. It still needs time to develop some more complexity, but still excellent.

2013, 75 cl

A-pours a murky yellow with a two finger wore head that dissipates fast

S-oranges, apricot, wet grass, lemon peel

T-Orange peel, tart, rice

M- tart but not overly sour, goes down smooth and leaves a nice orange after taste.

O-delicious but a bit hyped. I love me some cantillon but I don't the fruit to be very subtle. Delicious nonetheless but the price tag is rather high. Will drink again!
