3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Long time want, I finally stumble across this one. Pours a orange, with huge frothy white head. Aroma is a little weird with sour candy, barnyard and pepper. Taste is light sourness, candy sweetness and a weird peel or grassy bitterness. Too top it off, it is way overcarbed. Hard too drink and not very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden ale with a speedy dissipating white top, leaving just a little ring of the same. Smells of must, some funk some lemon - nice nose. This very much reminds me of cuvee rene from lindemans on the nose. The flavor is mildly sour, with funk and some grain and a little bit of lemon pith in there as well. Light bodied with some moderate carb and a good dry finish. Good beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle split by Ajax. Hazy gold with bubbly carbonation. Aroma is nice, tart fruit, lacto, and hints of a flower character and light yeast. Jeez, will the flavor be as good as the aroma?
The answer is yes. The Lambic influence is mild, gives a light tartness that gives the flavors a nice complexity. Zesty yeast, tart fruit with the mild flowery character that I found in the nose. Adam told me the price he paid and I was not surprised but because of the high cost I could not see ever enjoying this on a regular basis. However, if money was never an issue I would buy a case of this.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
2014.07 - 75cl - gekocht in ’open baladin’ Rome - daarbij afgegaan op de vermelding ’lambiek cantillon’, een persoonlijke favoriet (en het eerder geproefde geweldige ’rubus’bier van dezelfde brouwer, schept bijzonder hoge verwachtingen) - gusher ! troebel oranjekleurig bier, weelderige witte schuimkraag - neus : bijt in uw gezicht, onaangenaam (of is er een probleem met deze specifieke fles ?) sterke geur van gist en het fruitig zurige van de lambiek - mond : start lichtbitter, beetje bloemig, de lambiek van cantillon komt er vervolgens deels door - hoge verwachtingen die voor mij niet ingelost worden. echt zonde van de verknoeide lambiek, dit heeft totaal geen zin.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Stubby 11.1 oz bottle into a wine glass. Picked up last year and the code is LS3713, so possibly a September 2013 bottling? Pours a hazy amber body with an absurdly sudsy white head. Nose is stone fruits, grass, a light spice, and some funky musk. Earthy and deep. Taste is clean and refreshing with the saison notes of lemon, stone fruits, and grass balanced out by the funk and mineral quality of the lambic. Lightly sour and lactic, keeps you coming back for more. This is a really awesome blend.

This is a very good blended beer. Nose has some saison smell to it. It’s nice and tart, with some slight citrus. I could drink this everyday.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle shared with Chad. Aroma is dull cellar funk, grass, and rubber. Pours dirty blonde with nice carb and a small head. Taste is moderately hoppy with grass notes, some slight pez/bandaid funk, and dull cellar notes. Easy sipping and nowhere NEAR as funky as I was expecting. I could knock these back indefinitely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Paul! Hazy deep gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of Brett funk, saw dust, almonds, lemon peels and oak. Flavor is similar with a sweet tart ending. Not too shabby.
