750. Wow, I’m really not the right person to rate this. Pours orange-amber with minimal head; no visible carb. Smells sharply pungent; overwhelming barnyard and horse blanket; quite tart and citric. Tastes like lemon juice. And nothing else. BitBucket Jr sez "smells like athlete’s foot and @ss."

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Ever-so-slightly hazed bright gold, a scotch color that is deeper. No real carbonation... just some big bubbles. Aroma is abusive dry horseblanket, sour wood that would take the paint off a building. But at the same time, there is some hidden complexity as it warms that is hard to see. Some light fruit and honey. Very unique lambic taste. It has a bit of a stale wood component, quickly followed by a moderately sour taste. If you let it drift over your tongue, it gets very sour and woody. Pretty good. Trying not to get to jizzy on it... but it is good and mellow.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Pours to a flat looking hazy golden body. The aroma is sour cornflakes, but it smells really good. The flavor is sour like a geuze but not nearly as complex. The flavor is nicely sour. Funky wood and sour apples. So delicate and complex. Perfect mouthfeel. Tart, sour, smooth.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2006
pours a lightly cloudy copperish orangish off color no head at all. Nice sour aroma lots of wood notes definate horse blanket and touches of leather and a hint of smoke defiante berries although I couldn’t tell which kind. Palate is fairly avg w/ a nice cheek puckering. A nice full tart flavor nicely complex a great deel of bitter fruits definate berries and apples some light leather and wood notes very mellow flavor that was quite good.

Enniskillen (2045) - 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 (4085) - 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.
