I got this at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo NY.

Pours a yellow pilsner-like color with a bit of haze, even lighter than the gueuze. The head almost immediately becomes a thin film, leaving sparse lace trails behind. The aroma is tart with wet hay and lemon and a woody hint. The taste is immediately very sour with an acidic wave subduing my whole mouth. Sharp lactic notes are abundant throughout.

Very unripe apricots show in the middle, as well as the nutty slightly astringent taste of their pits. Fruit flavor is very meek compared to the sourness, but luckily the brett, pedioccocus etc fair better. there are lots of farmy, earthy, musty notes all over the place. Cereal and tangy wheat flavors lie in the background. The finish is full of lemon rind sourness. The mouthfeel is medium with light carbonation.

Another fantastic Cantillon beer. It needs more funk and depth to be among the best. Still is ethereal stuff.
