Saeglopur (1434) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 17, 2015
750 ml bottled 24 August 2015, shared by Mmahut at Bratislava Tasting, thanks!
Amber, hazy body, with a medium, frothy, white head.
Aroma of barnyard, young cheese, sweet and sour apples, apricot, peach, some vinegar.
Tastes of barnyard, sweet and sour apples, pears, apricot, peach, berries, juice, some vinegar.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes very fruity, juicy, wooden, medium sour, with some more apples and pears.

Very tasty. Fruitier than other cantillons Iíve had, pretty juicy, with a well balanced sourness and just subtle barrel notes. The finish is just wonderful, with very long-lasting juicy notes. Propably my favourite Cantillon so far.

Simay (74) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 17, 2015
Dark orange foggy body with white head. Smells dominantly appricot, has a sour smell, has some citrus tones, some spices, has a slight pickles smell or fruit vinegar. Tastes very sour, lots of citrus taste, the appricot taste is not very dominant at first but the after taste is like appricot marmelade. Even though I am not a big fan of sour beer, I really enjoyed this combination.
