Enjoyed a 14' with friends by the bonfire. You get the full apricot, skin, flesh, and pit. A beautiful beer!

2015 cork.
My second time having it (previous was 2014). Consumed solo over poetry on a lovely spring afternoon.
Massive foam at pour fades to loose bubbles
The smell is apricots soaked in orange juice
Taste follows. Apricot is there, but it's mainly apricot skins. White grapes and orange pulp and tannins and some noble hop cheese? Or is that just the oak? Aggressively dry but not phlegmy. Apricot nicely present on aftertaste.
Rather full mouthfeel, which is where so many American approximations fall short.
Glorious!

Tasted along side a few other apricot sours, and this one showed quite well! Aroma is a smooth blend of fruity and floral, perfume like quality of fresh roses, some sweet apricot concentrate. Characteristic Belgian gueuze funk and undelying buteric acid, some lactic notes...some pepper. But oh so smooth and quite a treat. This one is clearly not a product of the Cantillon hype train...it is for real.
