roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Available by the 75 cl bottle at D’s six packs and dogs in Edgewood, east of Pittsburgh, PA. Vintage 2003 bottle. In Rochfort chalice, beer is an orange-golden, slightly cloudy liquid with no head, no carbonation, but seemingly appropriate. Aroma is of sour aples, pears, white wine acid, old foot, band-aid, musty barn, bundled hay, cheese, and cobwebs. Flavor is sour, tart, a velvet coating the mouth, puckering, citric acid, acidic fruits, ends moderately, or perfectly dry. Not really familiar with the style, but oh, what a wonderfully different beer experience. Sampled at cellar temperature.

radiomgb (2364) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005
Bottle. Cloudy golden-yellow in colour. Pours with no head. Stunning aroma with lots of sourness, must, grapes and flower petals. The flavour was musty, some old cheese, apple skin, startch, very sour. Refreshing acidic saliva-inducing mouthfeel, medium-light body. The finishes lingers on and on. Wow, it doesn’t get much better then this.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
Couleur blonde dorée, presque translucide. Acide, citronné et signé par les levures sauvages au nez. Les délicieux arômes nous font aussi penser au gazon jaune séché par le soleil. Quelques notes boisées, meringue et typique brettanomyces. Toujours dans le département de l’excellence, cette version en fut semble moins expressive et acide en bouche que la version en bouteille. Facile à boire et plutôt accessible pour une Cantillon. En fut au Moan And Dove, 21 Mai 2005.

(vintage 2002, bottle) Dark golden, low creamy white head. Complex and acidic aroma of oak, wood, cork and salt. Flavour is acidic, woody and cheesy, small notes of leaves. Sourish and salty woody finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2005
Aroma is the typical funky, barnyard, wet blanket. Mellow yellow, has a small custard head. Flavour is a distinct tart fruitness. Very dry, light bodied, in spite of the difficulty to swallow this tart, acidic concoction, leaves You begging for more! My first unblended lambic, Yumm!

Hazy gold w/ relatively low carbonation & small, frothy white foam. Tart, acidic barnyard aroma w/ sharp cheese & leather notes & a light oaken, vinous quality. Light-medium, acidic feel. Very dry, tart, leathery acidic flavour w/ barnyard notes, a light fruitiness, & an earthy woodiness.
