Pours hazy amber with no head. Aroma of moldy oak, a clean tartness, sour goose berries, funky notes and some delicate floral notes. The taste is tart and dry with notes of dry wood, vinegar, funky notes, floral notes, sour goose berries and just overall very harmonic beer. Really delicate.

Sampled from a bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Very cool to try this! Golden pour. Getting some apple, and plenty of funk. Fairly soft overall. Very nice.

falco242 (277) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Funky and barnyard and a good sour flavor on the hay and bready flavor. So good. Really hard to benchmark something like this, but worth it to share with some friends who love wilds and sours. Where The Wild Beers Are!

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Thumbler glass. A: Pours an orange clear color and no head is formed. No lacings are formed or left S: Very fruity. Strong notes of white grapes and appels. Vinegar. Notes of sweet grains, Lambic yeasts and wood T: Surprinsing in the mouth. Slighlty sweet grains upfront. Again, very fruity with strong notes of white grapes and apples, mainly. Vinegar tartiness. Lambic yeasts, a little bit metallic. Good notes of oak and a bit of hops bitterness in the very end. An authentic Lambic but quite smooth for a Cantillon, I mean, not sour like their Kriek Lambic, for example M: Light body. Very low carbonation. Slightly sweet and fruity aftertaste followed by mild sourness O: Good drinkability. Not the best Cantillon Iíve had but still a classic. Recommended [ BA Review @ 1/19/2013 ]

On tap at Borefts 2014. Comes a mostly clear golden orange with no head. Aroma of fruit and funk. Taste is tart apples, funk, wood, and spice. Very good.

"unblended lambic aged three years in oak. after a couple Cantillon beers, Iím just not seeing what the fuss is about, ESPECIALLY for the price! aroma is muddled lambic/sour notes, like Iíve had before but watered down without the usual pleasantries. below avg. it pours flat - no head. no carbonaion provides a watery mouthfeel, and since the flavor was also watered down vegetal sour, acidic...this just isnít a good beer, for any price. sour, but not too much. cidery, but barely. this isnít delicate, itís just dull. almost all lambics iíve had have been better.

Lukasmh (174) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours intense clear orange golden with no head and no carbonation. Aroma is cantillon funk, brett, barnyard, acid tart apples and some wood. Taste is pretty sour and clean. Vinegar. Watery feel due to the lack of carbonation. Dry oaky finish along with astringent tartness.

Vestergaard (394) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
75cl bottle. Pours clear orange amber with no head at all. Aroma has lots and lots of oak. a little vanilla, and then lots of tartness, herbs, sourness and funky yeast. Taste is pretty sour. Lots of vinegar, balsamico, dry oak, bittersour funk, barnyard. No carbonation and an almost sticky boddy. Very pure!

Alexanderdahl (11) - DENMARK - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy and golden. Aroma of crisp, fresh apples. Very lightly carbonated, making the sourness step up so much more. Sour, but balanced! Nice!

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
At Eurhop festival in Rome-ITALY, on tap. Color is a golden/orange, a bit hazy with almost no foam. Mild refreshing sourness in the nose. Mouth has acidic pungent feel and aftertaste, very thirsty quenching. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
