4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My 2000th rating. Have had this bottle for about 5 months. Kept in my wine fridge. I’ve heard that the fruit fades on this over time, so time to drink it. The pour is golden amber, hazy, with a large light fluffy white foam head which dissipates to thin after a few minutes. Nose is delightful. There’s effervescent soda, sherbet, sour lactobacillus, apricot fruit, slight volcanic mineral note. It’s far more delicate, fragrant, light and more balanced than I expected. Really delightful fruit and sherbet nose. I had the fresh apricot Cantillon at GBBF a few years back and it was bolder on the fruit and more straightforward. This is lighter. Taste is sour lactobacillus, apricot fruit, apricot stones, tart sour. The sourness is fairly lip puckering, with just enough fruit to balance it out. Very clean sourness and tartness which is good. Soft and delicate on the palate. Finish is a tingling lactobacillus tartness on the back of the tongue and throat, soda water tingle, minerals. Subtle, clean, light fruity and bold sourness. This is a refined Cantillon, worthy of the reputation. Would like to taste it fresh to get more of the fruit.

che dire di questa birra, entusiasmante anche solo all’apertura del tappo, tutto l’aroma delle albicocche esce ed inebria il locale, il colore oro torbido, la schiuma densa e persistente.
Sia al naso che in bocca si ritrova facilmente la frutta utilizzata, sapida e saporita. un sorso da non dimenticare.

Draft. Musty yeast, apricot, malt and straw aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet-tart apricot, malt and typical Cantillon musty flavor. Nice body. As if CBS wasn’t enough, got to try this today as well.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 75cl bottle, 2014 (aug) vintage, shared by oldmanriver at his forced potluck post-Nikolaus tasting 12/2014. Fresh bottle radiating with what the fruit harvest had to offer: A cubist framing of all fruity and fresh fleshy aspects of apricot, carried by a dry & funky sour Cantillon frame: peel, flesh and pit represented in a brew so perfect and simple it becomes synonymous with unrelenting tradition, this Rhenian side of Franconia. - Will revisit aged.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une des plus acides. Légèrement huileuse. nez abricot et acidité. Le côté lambic de cantillon est relativement mis de côté par les abricots. Des touches de fruits type pêche également.
Trop acide, passez de goût de lambic.

Bottle shared with Richthevillan, cheers Rich for this top beer. Slightly hazy amber beer with large head. Aroma of apricots and some lambic notes. Taste is fruity sherbet, apricots, some cheese, light lambic action and zesty. Palate is a little chalky and a touch of oil. Excellent.
