rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2007
Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Immensely sour aroma with gastric juice like citric acid. Low on the fruits as always with Cantillon with ripe citrus/grape peel. Very hardcore Lambic.

2005 bottle, thanks rickgordon!
Shady golden color, white head. Sour apricot scent, marvelous. BillieMaria said "sweaty feet" where my reply was "if my shoes smelled like this I’d sleep with them next to my pillow!". Huge dry sour taste that lingers forever, I love it! Very sour mouthfeel, no bitterness.

Cloudy orange color, fizzy white head. Sour fruity scent. Very sour, mouth puckering, gut punching, apricots taste. Amazing! Puckering mouthfeel, no bitterness. Amongst the most sour beers I’ve ever tasted.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle. A yellow hazed color with a white head. Sour, barnyard, citrus and the expected gueuze aroma. Sour yet smooth with a smoked fruit flavor and an apricot finish. Thanks to the bachelor party crew for this one!

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Wow!! Very very sour, and this is from someone who loves Rodenbach Grand Cru. Strong apricot...make that hugely strong apricot, slight vinegar and green apples. Complex aroma, with hints of cheese. A winner.

TheEpeeist (3281) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
25.4 oz bottle. Bottled in 2.004. Foggy gold with a touch of white froth. Some sediment in the bottom. Sour lemon and yeast with emergent apricot. Unfolds just beautifully. Taste is more sour than nose. Initially tart lemon with hints of pineapple. Apricot remains. Fruitier as it warms. Faint carb, medium light. Finishes with a pleasant pucker and woody peach pits.

toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - MAY 22, 2007
750 ml. thanks to padrefan, Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of everything sour, lemons, apricots, and grapefruit. Flavors of the same. No really my style.

fordest (1964) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2007
750 ml bottle shared with Padrefan. Lots of sour apricot aromas. More apricot in the flavor. I usually don’t think of apricot as a sour flavor, but it went nicely. Very very good.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
750 ml bottle from O’briens. Very nice mirky orangish golden color with a huge white frothy head. Very tart, sour, and very dry mouth feel. Very little sweetness. Very good lambic.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours a weird cloudy straw/orange/gold with virtually no head. Pungent sour aroma along with some yeast. The flavor reminds me very much of biting into a lemon. Totally sour which completely dominates the flavor of this beverage. There were some grassy flavors in there as well. If there’s anything else going on with this beer, I can’t detect it because it is being overrun by the sour flavor. Thin, unappealing mouthfeel.

ABUSEDGOAT (2323) - California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Got over a $10 discount because the guy at the register couldn’t find this one in the system. Kick ass. Hazy orange with a small head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is dominated by tart lemons and has notes of barnyard action, lighter fruits, more acidity and a light malty sweetness. Medium to light body, enjoyable but not great... like most of the Cantillon beers for me.
