Douberd (2968) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
(Cantillon Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru) Bottle 750 ml, served into a Cantillon tumbler, ABV 5% Golden orange colour on the body, a bit hazy, no actual head, just some bubbles forming, laving a thin line around the glass after they pop. Nice aroma, wine notes, sour apples, some wood Nice taste too, basically follows the aroma, quite sour but not as much as I expected, well balanced. Tart and dry on the palate, medium thin body, low carbonation. Tasty.

Saeglopur (698) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 15, 2015
750 ml bottle shared by Cuso. Thanks!
Orange, hazy body, with no head.
Acidic aroma with funk, sour fruits, like green apples, dough, some pepper.
Sour, tart taste, with about the same aromas, also salty and overall with a very well balance.
Quite light mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes sour, tart, salty.

Very good! Quite raw, but still with a great balance. Pretty complex of course. Overall enjoyed this a lot, but not the best Cantillon Iíve had.

Yellow and hazy pour, absolutely no head. Funky toes, blue cheese /barnyard aroma. Oily on the tongue and flat. Taste follows suite, that barnyard funk, only slighty tart. Probably a good example of an unblended lambic beer. Probably not the most score shattering loon but it has its place on the sun too

Gurthnar (2615) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Aroma medicinal brett, light bubblegun, very light fruity, peach maybe. Hazy orange colour. Rather flat. Taste initially shocks, but mellows with second sip. Soft bretty medicinal notes, fruity, rather tart than sour. Peach. Quite good, but there are better.

tectactoe (2944) - Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Bottle: Deeply hazed amber & burnt golden color, not much head (as expected) just a few mild bubbles on top. Aroma of sour lemon, sweat socks, horsey funk, wet hay, acidic stone fruit, & some faint yogurty lacto. Notes of funky cork, cheese rind, & wood near the end. Sour lemon & apple skin flavor, lightly acidic. Notes of sour lacto, hay, cork, funky driftwood, & some horse sweat. Hints of white grape & stone fruit. Cheesy, funky, woody, dry, sour. Flat, oily mouth feel. Really nice, but not in Cantillonís upper echelon.

mecafilo (129) - Perugia, ITALY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a bright orange colour, small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma has notes of leather, barnyard and basement aromas, very nice because itís not overwhelming, as it usually happens with lambic beer. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, medium sour. Medium body, watery texture, flat carbonation.
