PotjeBier (2749) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2016
Glass @ the brewery, from a jug (presumably straight from a barrel). Copper color, hazy. No head. Aroma’s: sourish, funky. Retronasal it’s sour, yoghurt/lactic, some funk and wood. Flavor is moderate sweet, moderate sour. Light bodied. Finishes slightly dry, with some grain and a hint of bitterness. I liked it.

Tap at moeder lambic. Pours a hazy orange with a lasting bubbly white head. Aroma of vinegar, soy sauce, citrus, caramel, melon. Taste is of vinegar, caramel, dried fruits, butterscotch. Soft oily, slightly sticky mouthfeel, little to no carbonation.

The_Osprey (6631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Nov 2015 - Unknown dispense, poured from a ceramic jug at the Cantillon brewery. Hazy dark orange, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet syrups, biscuits, light sourness. Body is medium, smooth, light carbonation. Taste is light vanilla, red berries, smooth, apple, very light sourness. Not too sweet, which is often what lets the style down.

From notes on 9/15/15. On Cask at Moeder Lambic. Poured a light color, almost like a pilsner. Big sweet taste. Hints of apricot maybe? Very good.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2016 Sweeter than any other Cantillon i’ve had and among the most interesting. Brownish in color and very drinkable.

tricksta_p (3626) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2015
From tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussel. Aroma of tart fruits, ripe citrus, some sugary notes, some malt and caramel. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate sour. Body is medium. Never thought I’d say it, but this is a decent Faro.

simont1 (582) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2015
Smell of blue cheese, mold, light barnyard, citrusy, a bit burned sugar. Taste is overly sweet, a bit of citrus, and clear blue cheese. Not really my favourite.

MrOrla (2311) - Odense C, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
Cask At moeder. Pours hazy orange with faomy white head. Aroma tart, funk, quite sweet, sugary. Taste is quite un complex, with a very sweet ending. The huge amount of sugar, blocks the real good things beneath.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Different from all the other Catntillion flavors. Very good but different. Tart with toffee sweetness. Had many times but odd. Still great. Pours dark garnet with no real head. Predominantly sweetness with the tart that did start to balance it out. Finished leather and earthy.

PhillyCraft (5979) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Pours hazy golden with medium white head that has rather large bubbles to her. Notes of sour funk, malt, sugar and cream. Medium bodied. Too sweet for me but was still enjoyable considering the producer.
