KansaiBeerLvrs (3557) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle poured into a small tumbler at Dolphins Higobashi 2015 Zwanze Day Event. Bruocscella 1996 was a dense cloudy orange gold with a soft aroma & body. The taste is great, mild lemon cake tartness, funk and spice. Super mellow and drinkable. I wish I could’ve gotten more this was great.

AirForceHops (4993) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle poured at Novare Res, murky gold color with no head at all. Aroma is rotten lemons, dusty yeast (horse blanket), oak.

Well, if you love sour lambic so this should be "your jam". For me it’s so sharp it is nearly to much. Mouthfeel is very tart and sour with a huge dry sour oak finish. Pretty intense.

Chalumeaux (567) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Poured from bottle at Novare Res light brown gold with minimal head. Aromas of tart funk with sour fruit and sour wheat. Taste follows aroma. A decent beer.

WillRunForBeer (1694) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle pour at Novare. Brown gold with no head. Aroma has a balance of yogurt and barnyard funk, sour wheat, red fruits. Nice and soft on the palate up front, then the tart cherry yogurt, barnyard funk tastiness takes over. Finish is super dry raspberry/blackberry. Flat.

Mesjasz (355) - Lodz, POLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Bottle, fresh 2015 bottle. Almost clear golden color, no head. Aroma is barnyard, leather, grapes, gooseberry, dry white wine. Taste is medium sour, dry, light tart with some sweet notes. Flavor of lemon, grapes, funk, light vinegar. Aftertaste is dry and light tart, flavor of bitter grapefruit and lemon. Light body, watery texture, flat carbonation. Not best Cantillon unblended lambic, but very nice and complex.

Dégustée en compagnie d’Espion. Aucune mousse à l’exception de quelques grosses bulles égarées et éphémères. Ce lambic véritable et authentique est doré et fort appétissant! Vapeurs acides et vinaigrées, fruitées qui tendent sur le raisin vert et la pommette. Le liquide est mince et on goûte le lambic pour ce qu’il est vraiment : plutôt granuleux et fruité. Au corps très agréable, ce lambic est facile à déguster même pour les non amateurs du style!
