4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with a friend. Pours clear golden orange with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves decent lacing. Initial aroma is quite strong, room filling with funky brett barnyard notes, woody tannins, brandy. Initial aroma is so strong there is almost a turpentine feel to it, but that fades as the beer breathes. Flavor is quite dry, lightly funky with some basement and horse blanket notes, but not overly so. Fruity, lots of barrel feel, with some cognac essence present as well. A lot of complexity in this beer.... Light body, fairly light carbonation, particularly for Cantillon.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 2007 bottle, big thanks to Bill for hosting. Hazy yellow pour with no head, aroma brought notes of slight cognac, white grape, nice vanilla, earth, slight horseblanket, earth, nice. Taste is a mix of cognac, earth, grass, cognac, into some lemon, nice grass, lemony notes, slight grain, finishing fairly tart, slightly dry. Wow this is complex and tasty.

Shared a bomber with Sherm1016 on Christmas Eve....Thanks!! Pours a hazy golden color with thin, quickly dissipating head. Nose is a hint of wet hay; hint of hops. Taste is a funky sour...just a bare hint of booze...maybe that’s the cognac...the cognac wasn’t otherwise evident. This was an excellent beer to enjoy...tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle, purchased at West Lakeview on Zwanze Day 2013, split with dwm1034 on Christmas Eve 2013. Pours a hazy light amber color with a thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma is funky, yeasty, some lemony citrus. Medium on the palate with light carbonation. Flavor is sour, citrus, lemon, some barnyard funk, maybe just a touch of cognac, maybe, with a dry, sour finish. The cognac barrel seems a little lost, but otherwise an excellent lambic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to my good friend sebletitje for getting me a bottle of this and making me a tasting event hero. Thanks again buddy. The 75cl bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a long lasting white head of foam. The aroma is typical Cantillon with tartness, acidic notes, yeasty soured citrus and a mild level of earthy basement. The taste has acidic notes, tart non acidic citrus and then more of an earthy lemon lime like quality. It gets a bit woody and yeasty around the edges and ends with a moderate pucker and dryness. Beneath those pesky notes is a yeasty funked up basement dustiness.

Bottle sampled @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Clear new penny pour. Dusty, leafy, musty, damp. Barnyard and wet hay. Lemony and moderately pungent. Tart unripened citrus and a hint of wood and cognac from the barrel. Cantillon can be a huge hit or miss for me...this was a hit. Big thanks to whomever brought it!
