Bottle at Higgins in Portland, OR. Aroma is highly unusual. It almost smells like a baby diaper. Some tartness and fruit comes through, but the poo smell is there. Cloudy medium gold, no carbonation (which makes sense because it’s unblended lambic). Flavor is very mellow, but that aroma just makes it very difficult to drink.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
Flat golden colour. Nice barnyard funk in the nose. Refreshing white wine flavour in the start, long and acidic balanced finish. Tasty fruit notes.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2005
Bottled. RBESG -05. Clear dark golden. Barnyard, apple and cheese aroma. Flavour is unripe apples, acid. Very flat. Very good!

Savad (58) - Den Bosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2005
2001 vintage. Had it in June 2005. A shock! Bad shock. Does not taste or feel Cantillon. Hope it’s just this bottle: infected or wrong handling. Gives a leather and dusty aroma. Peach color. Looks dead, has no appeal. A tee-leaf in the flavor at first. Dusty wood in the finish. Dusty and plain mouthfeel. Some astringency.

Sigmund (5120) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle, vintage 2002, RBESG 2005 Grand Tasting. Golden to amber colour, no head. Overwhelming barnyard aroma, hints of lemons too. Sour flavour with lemony notes.

750 mL from ClarkVV. Pours hazy orangy gold with no head. Oak and musty malt, yeast (straw) aromas with fruity lemon notes. Sour and tart lemon acidic mace flavor with musty oak notes. Light and fizzy palate, almost chalky.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2005
Hazy pale yellow, no head. Citric, sour yeasty nose. Acidic citrus/grape flavour with some notes of unripe fruits. Has a complex sweetness too in finish.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2005
Bottled @RBESG’05 (vintage 2002)
Yellow, a bit hazy, no head. Sour, lambic nose. Sour, earthy, "refreshing". "Basic" high-quality unblended.

Kevin (2084) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 7, 2005
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.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2005
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.
