Fresh bottle (August 2015)

Pours crisp pale orange with slight haze. Huge stone fruit on nose with a touch of brett funk. Tons of apricot on the palate, with a soft acid bite and a subtle funk undertone. Fantastic beer. just wow

A definite want for a long time...Thanks to @byronic for the hookup.

Pours a not quite cloudy but not clear peach color with a very minimal head that disappeared quickly. The nose picked up the tart right away, and on the back end you could get the apricot. There was also earthy tones present, such as grass and a tiny bit of funk. The taste was sour/acidic right up front and then you get unripe apricot, with the sweetness of the apricot following much later on the very back end of the palate. Feel is medium with a prickly carbonation.

Overall, I enjoyed the hell out of this beer. My third Cantillon, and definitely the one I have enjoyed the most to date. The finish is fantastic and it is an easy to drink beer.
