light orange color with almost no head. sour, skunk aroma with a noticeable woodiness. tart tast, not really sour, but tart. woody almost orange flavor with some lingering grape echos. a metallic pear taste also arrises in this. and the last taste of this had some weird chocolate like flavor in it.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of Pailhead. Light golden in color with no head. Very nice musty/sour aroma. Initial flavor is all sour lemon-esque, little vinegar through the middle, but fades to nothing quickly. A little thin. Underpar for these guys.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just a mellow cantillon sounress and oak flavour, but well done on that account. Went well went varied with a doppleback and a mead. Cloudy yellow with no lace. Medium mouthfeel with acid that was tolerable. tart, dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy brown body with no head. Nose-skunky, dough, malt, light lambic. Taste-skunky, tannins, woody, sour, earthy. Kind of raw tasting, but not bad. I would much rather have Cantillon’s Geuze.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pailhead. LIghtly hazy and golden colored. No head, no lacing. Prerequisite funky aromas. Flavor runs more sour than tart if that makes any sense. Dissapointingly thin and watery. Light bodied. Decent but not up to the other offerings from this brewer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
07.16.05 No head over a dark straw. grassy nose and light barn. Some wood, but not as much as I’d have expected from something aged 3 years in the cask. Still body. Refreshing but lifeless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Its yellow alright but its laden with a thin finish, some grassiness, some sour fruit which to me is the highlight of a very fine beer. I can still feel the acidic quality in my mouth days after tasting it. Thank you Belgium Comes to Cooperstown 2005. Rerate on 11-30-08: I love that woodsy musty oak apple-laden tinge I detect and my rating stays the same!

Bottle at Ommegang, 2005. Yellow, clear, no head, and little in the way of carbonation. Funky juicy sour aroma and flavors, typical of cantillon. Well balanced and drinkably delicious.
