Started the year off right with my first ever Cantillon. Fou demolished my already high expectations.

A - Pretty orange hue, thick dense white head.
S - WOW, slight funk but huge fruity presence.
T - WOW AGAIN, I have been building up my cellar and my palette trying the very best I could excluding Cantillon so I would truly appreciate awesomeness when it happened. Well it did.
M - Honestly I have to admit that the mouthfeel of this beer and what I would imagine all other Cantillon taste like, may be the best part about this beer. Smooth creamy full.
Overall - I debated for a good two days before the new year whether I wanted to crack this open or save it, glad I opened it to enjoy the creamy fruity deliciousness.

'15 from the bottle. Pours like peach juice with half finger off-white head. Smells of oak barrel and apricot. Taste is much the same. Apricot and fruity tart. Finishes with a wine oak. Feel is like a mimosa. A thicker juice with a strong but not overbearing carbonation.

a rating below 4.5 in any category means that you should either not be drinking this stuff or you aged it for way too long.
drinking a 2015 release. picked it up in November. stored in my cellar for the month. served at cellar temp.
perfect laced head well after the pour. great head upon pour. looks like liquid gold. sensational.
nose is pure lambic with a hint of cat piss and mango.
taste: as others said, not an apricot bomb, which is what makes this amazing. the lambic blends with apricot perfectly both on the front and the back of the tongue. you can taste them separately or together. it pairs so well. on the tart scale, it's high up there.
i wouldn't age this at all. it is perfect as it is now.
