3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handpumped @ Akkurat, Stockholm. 10 May 2005
Rich head, slightly hazy. Cheesy/sweaty aroma with touches of white wine. Matured cheese, mushrooms, nuts and some harsness from (probably) the "peel". Bark/cork notes and not very acid for a Cantillon. Really more a wine than a beer to me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) hazy golden appearance. Low creamy head. Vinous aroma of cognac, wood, forest and white grapes. Vinous flavourwith a strong cask character. Wood, cognac and muscat grapes in front with subtle but still refreshing sourness. Woody vinous and sour finish. Wonderfull lambic.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy reddish golden, almost flat. Woody cognac aroma. The nose is sweet, and it does have a vinuos character, like muscat grapes, but much less so than the Gueuze. Concentrated, complex and elegant. The low carbonation gives it a pleasant, soft mouthfeel and Cantillon’s acidity balances out the vinous sweetness - but still this is by far the least sour beer I’ve tasted from Cantillon.
