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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours with an apricot body that is a bit hazy. Pretty nice white head that draws down to leave a little bit of lacing. Nose brings some light peach notes along with honey, grass, and a little bit of earth. The taste is ever so mildly sweet and fruity, but gives way to some drier, earthy elements and just a tad of funky leather. Mouthfeel is dry and a bit light. Fairly unique, and drinks pretty well overall.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to Todd for sharing. Aroma is gueze like. FLoral notes, light acidity and muted dusty funk. Decent

This is not a Saison. Its at least its a Sour Ale and you could probably argue its closer to a lambic. Really cool cap on this....it is one of those ’sterile caps’. Its weird to open a bottle and get a cork pop but you get it with these caps. Pours a nice orange body, thing white head. First smell is 100% cantillon gueuze. I’ve had a few beers where they blend some lambic and they usually fall short . This is good. Its sweeter and fruiter than a gueuze but not cloying . Its not nearly as dry and very drinkable. It kind of reminds me of the Lindemans Cuvee Renee Gueuze. I would probably rather have a Cantillon gueuze but this is an interesting beer thats a lot fuller/rounded than a balls to the wall gueuze. One of best Italian beers I’ve had.
