CamdenD (1116) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 31, 2005
Tasted like beer vomit. Acidic and almost undrinkable. Almost. Had it on tap and well, I suppose I could make a tap of this too. Feed me too much beer, let me vomit into tank, pressurize tank, put tap on, serve. You get more "Grand Cru." My Grand Cru!

Lubiere (11170) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
2002 Bottle. Golden lambic with no head. Nice sour aroma with notes of honey. Restrained sourness in mouth, with light horseblanket notes. Light bodied. Nice puckering effect. Sampled at Quintessence Cantillon 2005.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 4, 2005
750ml bottle from Puzzl. Pours a beautiful orangish color, as if a mango imploded inside the glass, very minimal white foamy head. Nose is very fresh, nice hints of fruit, some grass and outdoorsy notes. Flavors of ripe fruit, nice and juicy, some yeast, hay, grass, and a smooth clean finish.

Shared with SuIIy, pours out beautifully. Appearance is of a poured mango, very beautiful. Taste is delicous, very sour and delicous. My first unblended lambic, and I am a big fan. Thankyou my bestfriend SuIIy, much love.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Bottled 02/2005: Murky body and virtually flat; corky, sour, fruity aroma with hints of oak, peaches and plums, some funky attic mustiness; disarmingly sour, initially, musty medicinal fruitiness reminiscent of sour Granny Smith apples marinated in Listerine; the finish is better than the initial taste, with lemon, and yeast, but the sourness just overwhelms the palate; astringent and acidic, of course, and something one must grow accustomed to, apparently.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2005
Pour is hazy orangey amber with a still appearance and no head...smell is sour and funky which I expected...taste is slightly sour with lots of apple...I donít think this is as refreshing as a regular lambic due to the stillness...interesting though...

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy orange with a spare diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma is very sour along with some burnt rubber and some fruit. The flavour is extremely tart & citrusy -- itís definitely an acquired taste and Iím afraid Iíve got a ways to go still as I found this quite hard to drink.

Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry & tupalev - courtesy HogTownHarry. Hazy orange-amber with a very still body and no head. Aroma is very sour and funky, with some serious band-aid/medicinal notes - really nice. Flavour is agressively tart and acidic off the top - it was almost too much for me, and I usually really like lambics & geuzes. I got into it more after a few sips, but I found it lacked the complexity and character of the other Cantillon beers that Iíve had. I think I wouldíve appreciated it more on itís own rather than in the middle of a several hour tasting session. At least it cleared those awful Glenora beers from my palate...

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Poured a still amber, withi a grainy cloudiness. Aroma of acidic grapes, apricots, some funk, and a bit of sweetness underlying it all. Taste is tart up front with farmhouse funk with some bitter dried apricot in the finish. The body is surprisingly full. Overall Iíd say this is not the most pungent Cantillon Iíve had, but is actually quite easy drinking and agreeable. NIce.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2006 Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and Hogtown Harry, courtesy of Harry. My first unblended Lambic I think. Dark yellow, with a bubbly little head - almost looks like it was poured from a cask. Intense sourness in aroma, with some burnt rubber thrown in (thanks Harry for articulating that). Nice sour taste - very citrus, even banana like. Not tartness, all citrus and very dry. Really nice to sip, but not overly complex. Thanks Harry, a real treat.
