3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The "F**k Yo Passport" Tasting. 375ml bottle, 2005 cork, into Cantillon taster.
Pours orange, white head, thick ring around the glass. Nose is pickles, very sour, oak, and then a lot more sourness. Flavor is just a palate-destroyer sourness, not much of the berries at all, some citrus in there too perhaps. Body is light, good carbonation, very dry.
This beer is insanely sour and overall one-dimensional...if you like them sour and don’t want to taste much less the rest of the day, you’ll enjoy this beer. Unique and glad to have tried it, but too hyped.

375ml Bottle with a 2005 cork.
thank you bearded guy in the bar at one pint pub for the opportunity!
this is the clearest of all the lambics i have ever tried! superbly clear in appearance and with a nice apple juice color to it. aroma was funky sour berry with a soapy smell like you just washed your hands with violets!? the flavor reminded me of the skin of berries, and of course the taste of lambic.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
05’ Vintage, bottle consumed at One Pint Pub. Clear orange/yellow pour with a faint white head. This is my second favorite of the three, and it was a real honor to get to try it. Big sour fruit aromas with undercurrents of oak. I have never tried gooseberries before, but can say the fruit dominates the taste. Tart, bitter, and sour with lingering berry and acidic notes. Just a masterfully crafted lambic with a huge berry character. Outstanding mouthfeel with good body a carbonation. Even with the overwhelming tartness of the berries, you do not loose the depth and complexity of the beer. Bravo.....

1 of 250 bottles, 2005... a lot like the currants, with the age on this the gooseberries don’t get to show off much, again very sour but not as much as the red currant... if you like really sour Cantillon this is for you

bottle, sampled at rbesg 07 grand tasting. exciting to taste such a rare beer. hazy golden and flat; not as tart as some cantillon beers; lightly woody, hints of dusty mulberry bush; light, slightly artificial seeming sweetness; still lively and enjoyable

375ml bottle from jeppe shared at sourfest #1... pours more orange than brown that the rest thus far with a thin soapy head... aroma had a decent funkiness alongside some acidic qualities... flavors were tart and acidic. off fruit comes through with the first sip which then gives way to its acidic nature. quick dry finish.

375 ml bottle. Finland.
Hazy orange golden colour with no head.
Sour fruity lambic aroma with fermented juice, mold and wood.
Very sour flavour with mold and fermented juice.
Beer brewed with gooseberries is quite unique.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with 05 cork from the First CST sample #3. Pours a clear golden with a fine white silky froth. Smells fantastic, sharp and dusty, acidic, touch of mold, woody, light formaldehyde, hint of tart berry. Flavor is a bit more harsh, rubber, dry eraser, fairly bitter, sharply acidic, long chalky bitter rubber finish. Smooth bodied with silky fine fizzy carbonation. Well made just sort of odd.
