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.

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 Reviewed on: 10-15-2010

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.

Bottle shared by footbalm. Pours a clear yellow hue with a small white head. The aroma is mostly like a sour golden ale. The flavor is unexpectedly mellow, mostly sweet dry earthy champagne, almost no sourness. Unusual. Not my thing.

on tap at maxs. transparent gold, creamy thin layer white head. Odd blend nose, light fruit sweetness with cranberry, some wheat and light grass. Flavor is stronger saison, the dry grass and pepper prevalent. The cantillon Brett and acidity contrasts with the dry saison grass, comes off like fizzy fuity pebbles in the finish. Like the attempt and certain elements, but brett too prominent.
