75 cl bottle @ HBF’14. Bottled 27.02.2012, BBE 27.02.2032
Based on lambic brewed 23.02.2010
Aroma has earthy notes, farmyard notes, grapefruit and Cantillon house aroma. Flavour is tart and somewhat sour with cognac tones, grapefruit, some earthy tones and distant lactic tones. The cognac was present only on the first sip – after that the grapefruit notes took over. Not the most aggressive on sourness, but smooth and balanced. Very nice stuff.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a Light tan head. The smell is oak, sour and funk with a hint of booze. The taste is wood, acidic, citric, ending tart and dry. Light with wonderful carbonation....perfect. I think with a bit of time the taste will match the palate

Generously shared by t0rinbro. Thanks Bobby. It pours a pale gold color with a white head. The aroma is funky sour citrus fruit with some light barrel funk and darker fruit. The flavor has some cognac heat and nice complementary sour funk with orange and grapefruit. Good stuff.

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.
