Bottle opened by Douglas88, thanks for the brew mi amigo. You know, when you rate an Imperial Stout or an IPA you can draw from lifes experiences to describe the flavors or aromas.Hell, espresso, molasses, citrus, those are all things you can explain. But when a Lambic comes along and me being a city boy and never had a wet nasty horse blanket tossed drapped over my shoulders like Jeremiah Johnson might have, then how can use that as a descriptor? I do not know what the damn thing "smelt" like or even tasted like but it was a-fuckinging-mazing.

Lowenbrau (2201) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 26, 2014
750ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 27-12-2014.
Labeled as "Lambic Bio 2011". Bottled 6 October 2014.
Pours hazy deep golden with little vanishing white head. No lacing. Tart, grapy aromas. Light body, average carbonation, some crispy texture taht turns oily so quick. Taste is quite tart, a bit liveless, grapy, astrigent. Quite peculiar and enjoyable.

Zlotta (100) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2014
0,75 l bottle on Christmas Eve (bottled 6/10/2014). Slightly hazy, pale orange-yellow with almost no head. Only some small white bubbles that disappear quickly. Aroma of fermented apples and citrus. Sourish taste of fermented apples and citrus. Nice but not as good as expected. Medium sour aftertaste and a slightly tart finish. Thin body, fizzy mouthfeel, no carbonation. My first lambic which left me quite disappointed. I expected the aroma and taste to be more complex and intense. Still a nice beer but just too simple.

MotherBrother (767) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2014
Pours slightly hazy light amber, with no head. Aroma has citrus, slight horse blanket, earthy, wet hay. Taste is a tad sour, but nothing crazy.. average bodied, with slightly fizzy carbonation. but definitely less fizzy than the regular bio lambic.

Franckg (70) - - DEC 20, 2014
Vintage 2014. Doux arômes de lambics et de chêne. En bouche, le côté acidulé attaque le palais avec des saveurs de pommes fermentées. L’amertume est modéré et très fruité. Très spéciale mais un incontournable dans l’offre "régulière" de Cantillon.

milo91hd (138) - Lecce, ITALY - DEC 10, 2014
Bottiglia 75 cl del 2014. devo ammettere che al primo sorso mi ha spiazzato la totale mancanza di carbonazione, tuttavia una volta superato questo scalino le Cantillon fanno sempre bene il loro lavoro per gli amanti dell’acido.

Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Sample of both 2013 and 2012 bottles at (Hopp)Kurtkeller 016: Cantillon-tastic 01 on 10/11/2014. Slightly hazy orange-amber color with a thin white head that disappears quickly to a minimal outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart fruit and herbs. Light-bodied with flavors of tart green apples, mildly funky yeast and mild spice. The finish is fruity with a tart apple and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
