3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy, yellow colour and a thin head with an aroma somewhere between a barn and old tennis shoes. The flavour comes across with an interesting sour note, and surprisingly tasty considering the aroma

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy amber with a short, bubbly white head. Aroma is straw, funky yeast, flowers, tart fruit notes, leather, grass, earthy notes and hints of sweat. Taste is bigger sour fruit notes, leather, earthiness, soft grains, light straw notes, flowers, funky yeast and sweet malt notes in the background. Body is light with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Pleasant dryness throughout as well. Finishes with more sour fruit, grains, funky yeast, wet leather, earthiness, dried fruit, flowers, light grass and soft malt notes. Didn’t expect this to work as well as it does. Nice!

Pours hazy, effervescent orange gold into a tulip. Significant off-white head slowly recedes leaving craters and spiders. Sweet lemony and sour grapefruity citrus aromas. Dry with tart lemon and sweet meringue upfront turining to mild, tart grapefruit and marshmallow finish. Nice blend of saison and lambic.

375ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, light amber color, with a big white head. Aroma is funky, a little sour. Medium on the palate with fine carbonation. Flavor is sour, yeasty, with a tart, dry finish. More sour than saison for me.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL capped bottle poured into a Melbourne Bros glass. I pop the cap, pour the beer, and signature Cantillon fills my nostrils. Despite 10% Cantillon its mostly wild and sour barnyard on the nose. I can smell if for a long time. Color is slicked golden with a medium-thick head. Flavor however is a tease. There is Cantillon but its overwhelmed by the Saison. This makes it come off as a buttery lambic, just not as wild or sour. So, basically I wish there was more Cantilllon and less everything. Its almost like honey and lambic mixed. Medium heft with a sticky feel. Its almost like a tease-jerk, why play with me like that beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of some basement, light funk, straw, dust, light herbal notes, a touch of lemon. Interesting. Pours hazy light golden, whispy head and lace. Flavors of lemon, dust, light herbal notes, lightly funky. Clean tartness - moderate but nice. Easy drinking and very flavorful. Good stuff.
