Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2005
Draught at Akkurat. Loads of cognac, prunes and raisins in the aroma and in the flavour. Notes of apples. Very sweet and mature. Dry finish. The high alcohol content is slightly noticeable in the aroma but very well hidden in the flavour. Not much sourness. Very interesting and original. And tasty.

omhper (19243) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2005
(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.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
Hand bottled from draught.
Hazy copper colored with no head of course. Vinous aroma with sour apple notes, not as tart as the ususal Cantillon. Some toffee and wood in there also and salty hints. Slightly alcoholic. Flavor is rather white wineish. Dry and sharp with a tart edge. Fruity with a grapefruity finish. Flavorfull and biding. An atypical Cantillon lambic, less tart, but still very nice and interesting.

joergen (20589) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
Cloudy orange coloured with a small head. Aroma of wood, sherry and grapes. Acidic flavour of wood and grapes. Reminds me of a dry sherry. Not as acidic as most lambics. Nice and interesting.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Nice aroma of fermented apple juice, grapes, lots of wood and hints of aged cheese. Hazy orange colored body, no head at all and completely still. Some sourness and tartness, but not as sour as other Cantillons, good grape flavor. Very balanced.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
Golden appearance. Sweet and acidic. Woody flavour. Dusty and fruity. Sweetness and sourness is well balanced in this good lambic.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma has a strong alcohol presence - no wonder with 9% ABV, and also notes of wood and apples - but they can’t hide the alcohol. The flavor is sweet - yet acidic with notes of grapefruit, alcohol, and apples. Not as sour as other Cantillon products.

FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2005
Thanks to Jacob Lövenlund bottled from draught. Cloudy orange coloured with no head or carbonation. Fresh, sour aroma and taste of apples, yeast and wood. A very soft and well balanced lambic.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
Pours a dark hazy brown. Aroma is sweet grapes, with some woody, funky notes to it. Taste is tart, and surprisingly sweet. Not much acidity. Totally different from any other Cantillon lambic i’ve had, but still a very nice experience. Thanks to Jacob Lövenlund for sharing this gem with us
