3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Degarth for this bottle. The pour is a hazy dark orange with a thin white head. The aroma is vinuous with light fruit hints and definite sour scents. The palate is full, and more sticky than most lambics--with great carbonation. The taste is a ton of sour that socks you in the face--this coming from a guy who considers this his favorite style--so it is definitely sour. Lots of wood flavors and maybe a hint of apricot--but not much at all. The sour is a little too much throughout, and the other flavors donít present themselves strongly enough to make this as enjoyable as most Cantillon products.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Many thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing this fairly expensive bottle with me, thanks Brian! Poured a small white head, fair retention with spotty lace. Seriously hazy, gold, glowiing yellow colored brew. Nose is large, leathery, bretty,fruity with peaches, green apples apricot? and citrusy notes hiding in there also. Body is light, tart, sour puckering mouthfeel. Lots of funkiness here, wet leather, some oxydation and peachy flavors climbing out from underneath it all. Dry, tart, fruity and over the top! Sour, tart, WOW !! Cantillon, Whao....

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 2006 Vintage. Hazy straw-amber beer with no head. Slight tart aroma with some indistinct fruitiness. Nice refreshing tart flavor with funk, dust, apples, citrus and ending in apricots. Tart/sour lingers with a bit of that apricot fruitiness. Medium bodied. Great flavor in great balance. Not as dry as other Cantillonís Iíve had and thereís a bit of sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange with zero head. Sour slightly floral aroma. At first there is a slight hint of apricot in the nose and the taste but it is not something that overwhelms you. Sour and bitter taste dominates as a lambic should.

Bottled at Cantillon on public brew day. At first I feared this would be not good. I soon changed my mind.. Still canít believe how this can actually be more sour than their other stuff.. Itís like theyíve taken their Cantillon sour-amp and turned all the way up to... eleven

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Unclear, yellow-orange with a small, white head. Barnyard, yeast and citrus, mostly lime, in the aroma. The flavor is lemony and sour with yeast. Thin, very astringent beer with a dry, dusty feeling. Itís nice, but maybe too thin and sour. Rating: 8-4-8-4-16-4. 061028
Bottle, 75cl, at Esbjerg Beerfestival. Itís a hazy, orange beer with a minimal off-white head. Barnyard, lemon and other funky niceness in the aroma. Slighlty rubbery flavor, with barnyard, horseblanket and lots of lemon. Bonedry, astringent and sour mouthfeel. Lemony finish. Almost lip-burning dry, maybe a bit one-dimensional lemony, but sure lovely. 091023
