4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle #34 of 180, bottled in 2000 and consumed at Toronado, San Francisco. This bright orange lambic poured with a thin white head, eliciting a sharp citrus-like aroma. There is a delicate apricot flavor, with a very dry palate and a tart lemon finish. I have enjoyed many of the Cantillon brews, and this was my favorite.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange in colour. Apricot?! More like a big dry gueuze. Intensely dry, big sour mouthfeel. Mild fruity aroma. Very refreshing and morish, but hard to find the apricots there! Still tasty.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(on bottle) A vague sent here. The taste is also just sour, then, out of nowhere, the abricots sets in. Long finish of the same, the abricots makes this a very mild lambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled @ KØ 2005: Light golden coloured. Unclear. Medium sized white head. Abricot, light sweet sourness in the aroma. Has the typical earthy notes. Flavour as well is sour brilliantly held up by the sweetness. Some hay, tart and fruit notes. Ends on a fruity sourness and is refreshing and cleansing. Used this a twice as palatecleanser during the festival.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A typical Cantillon. Poured a lovely shimmering orange, smelled of lemons, acid and apricots, and went down like a shot of Drano, causing rumblies in my tummy. But while in my mouth, it was a nice mix of citrus, apricot, and lots of sourness. Could have used a bit more apricot to balance it out, but good nonetheless.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy light orange with a somewhat lasting white head. Aroma is light barnyard. Taste is tart as hell. Some apricot, brett and leather. As tart of a Cantillon that I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange-yellow colour without lasting head. Taste is of course sour, but with some mildly sweet apricot taste to balance things out...still new to this style and find it quite challienging, but I think this is the best one so far.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange-yellow colour, low dissapearing head. Acidic aroma of lemon peels, leather and barnyard. tart and very sour flavour of orange skins, hay and lemon. Where’s the apricot? Tart and sour aftertaste of lemon-peels and hay. Good but not the best Cantillon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange colour with a small head.
Aroma of sour milk, abricots and unriped fruit.
Sour flavour dominated by unriped fruit with notes of abricots. Slightly bitter finish.
One of the first lambics I’ve had, and I’m not used to the sour flavour yet.
