Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2005
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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2005
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 Iíve had.

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
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.

Hazy orange yellow with fast disapearing white head. sour and sweet aroma with notes of citrus. Taste is sour with note of apricot.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2005
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. Whereís the apricot? Tart and sour aftertaste of lemon-peels and hay. Good but not the best Cantillon.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2005
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 Iíve had, and Iím not used to the sour flavour yet. Interesting.

leaparsons (8163) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2005
Cloudy orange with a small head. Aromas are sour, musty and cheesy. I can smell the apricot behind the farmyard aromas. Flavours are very sour, perhaps the most sour Cantillon I have had. Musty as expected. Has lots of lemon juice notes towards the finish. Dry and sour on the palate. Another excellent Cantillon brew.

GregClow (2902) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Hazy orange colour with a tiny wisp of a head. Aroma is funky, cheesy & sour. Very complex flavour, similar to the regular gueuze but with more sour fruit notes. Very tart and dusty tasting, with nice apricot notes in the middle. The flavour changed as the beer warmed - I can only describe it by saying that the warmer it got, the "older" it tasted. I havenít had enough real gueuzes and lambics to completely get my head around them, but I know what I like, and I liked this a lot.

Brewtopia í05. Yellow body with little head. Sour aroma, apricot nose.no apricot taste how ever, but not bad eitherway.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2008 Bottle... Spring Brewtopia 2005... This beer rocks!... This is just a touch darker than freshly squeezed lemon juice and just about as sour. Donít really pick up any of the apricot. Tastes and smells like lemon juice aged in oak. Lively carbonation. This is the most sour beer I have ever had. Kicks La Folieís ass on the sourness scale... sorry New Belgium. Cabbage Patch Kids are honey-sweet compared to this. My nose and ball hair tingle each time I take a sip. I love spontanious fermentation. Liquid fun!
