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 (1822) - 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 (540) - 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.

yourilevesque (906) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
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!

rusos (374) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle. Aroma acetic, vinegary, some fruity notes. Taste medicinal bitter in the begining, then come woody, sour, winey notes. Sour aftertaste. Complexly good, but the begining is not very pleasant.

Paigeturner (101) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Love this style and brewery for sure. Green apple and sour light fruits. Light so light carbonation which made this so drinkable. Nice finish of oak and barnyard and some wet hay. Wonderful.

altonbrownd (4817) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Amber body with golden hue. Lots of green apples and citrus in nose. Taste is lemon, citrus, green apples. Quite sour. Unfiltered texture. Too sour for me.
