2015 version aged for one year. Light tart beer with some champagne quality though without the bite. Nice mild tartness. Apricot comes through a bit. Certainly one of the best lambics I've ever had.

Drank at the brewery. The bottle was a year old, and if the apricot had faded at all, it would be hard to tell. Also, had a fresh bottle afterwards generously handed out by Jean-Pierre to each table. It had yet to undergo the secondary fermentation, so was obviously quite different. And while not as great as a normal bottle, it was certainly interesting.

On tap at Haven Gastropub on 09/01/16.
Cloudy orange with a thin khaki head that remains as a thin ring and leaves spots of lace. The smell is of unripe apricots with subtle vinegar tartness. Thetast follows with sour peach and earthy, oaky tartness. Medium texture with moderate carbonation. Simplicity at its finest.

2016 Boise stone fruit tasting on 8/27. 750ml bottle pours out a cloudy pale golden, small airy head. Big blast of apricots, Belgian yeast notes, and some other funk. Taste continues with more of the same

750ml bottle poured into wine type glass; hazy orange color with foamy white head; great carbonation. The apricot hits the air immediately and tart fruitiness hits the nose. I am not a fan of Lambics but this is a well balanced beer. Sour and fruit is nurtured by the carbonation for an very enjoyable Brew! I would drink this again.
