tectactoe (3075) - 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 Cantillon’s upper echelon.

mecafilo (134) - 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 it’s not overwhelming, as it usually happens with lambic beer. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, medium sour. Medium body, watery texture, flat carbonation.

Jur (449) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2015
Draught @ Wildeman, Amsterdam. Clear orange amber. Smell like piss (ok!). Restrained funk, sour, light blue cheese. Fresh, balanced, but niche.

Broncowaldon (123) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Excellence, green apple, cherry sour cherry tart oaky goat cheese funk. Unreal balance of all the above in a wonderful example of an unblinded lambic

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from Sean, bought at De Molen. Clear yellow, no head. Sharp sour nose, bitter cooking apples. Flavour is mellow sourness. Soft carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel. Finish is mellow, applejack, amazing.

RickTheRick (563) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
Dorée à l’aspect embrouillé évident, aucune mousse se forme lors du versement, laissant ainsi croire que la carbonatation sera assez faible. En fait, elle est inexistante et c’est tout à fait normal pour ce type de lambic. Malgré tout, une certaine rondeur est appréciable en bouche, la texture étant un peu grasse même. L’acidité est délicate et le funk est léger. Céréales et fruits jaunes s’amalgament dans un breuvage hautement rafraîchissant au nez poussiéreux et fermier.

Warped_Silver (120) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours dark yellow and hazy. Aroma of mild funk grass and floral. Muted compared to most cantillon. Taste of oak predominance. Mildly floral citrus, grapefruit, good but blunted. Thin mouthfeel. Overall ok. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
