Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Body is gold with no forming head. Sour, horseblanket, almost a watermelon like aroma to it along with grapefruit. Taste is watery with the normal Cantillon initial sourness with some lemon. Palate and beer is just to watery.

IrishBoy (3960) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 3, 2006
2005 vintage; Nose of tartness, barnyard; Gold color with little or no carbonation; less body and not as sour as the Iris we had last week; flavor shows the acidic side of things with some small apricot like notes.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thanks to the Dewbrewers for sharing this beer. 750 ml. Bottle. Pours clear pale orange with a thin head and weepy lacing even though there was no sign of carbonation when the cork came out! Aroma of vinegar, wood, and malt. The taste is almost the same but with a very dry wood finish. Great beer!

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 I think this is my favorite Cantillon. Pours a dark golden color, still, no carbonation. A mild flavor for Cantillon, but it is unblended and aged for 3 years! A tart sourness, some oak in the flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Rating #900! and popping the cork on #69 of RBís 70 beer styles. 750 ml, "Bottled 2005." Well, the only common beer with a "900" in its name is Camo 900, so letís do this instead. Besides, itís symmetry: my first rating was Capitol 1900.
Pours light yellowish brown, looking a bit like apple juice. No real head, but some pinprick bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Smell is pretty nice. I expected lots of sourness, but more cidery notes with a bit of wood. But taste is where the sourness comes in. Real brett sourness, no acid used here. Somehow a bit rubbery, then more of the crabapple cider. What else? Some butterscotch, mown hay thatís actually tripping my allergies. Yep, there are those stale hops, and a big barnyard character. Reminds me of that Berliner Weisse toward the end.So what do I compare this to, if itís likely the only unblended lambic Iíll find outside of Belgium? Itís certainly a pleasure to have discovered and enjoyed this puzzle, so Iíll count my experience as part of the rating.
