Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle 2003, at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Pours a hazy golden-orange colour, with a nice small white head. Aroma is very pleasant. Its dry, hay and grape with sweet gooseberries and notes of old humid cellar. The flavour is gooseberries and citrus but with a little to acidic aftertaste.

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.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2012
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

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at RBESG. First off thanks to Tom for making sure I got to try some of this extremely rare beer. Typical Cantillon funky and sour aroma in which I could not really detect any extra fruit added. Citric and very bretty flavour which although smooth and drinkable lacks a little ot that special Cantillon punch. All the boxes are ticked I’m just not sure I like the fruit which reminded me of Ocean Spray fruit juice that Sim drinks. Still an absolute pleasure as all Jeans beers are.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle during the first annual Chicago Sour Tasting. Bottled in 2005 thanks to Kan. Orange amber with small white, creamy head. Aroma is earthy, slight wood, slight sour, grapey, musty. Flavor is sour, woody, earthy, grapey, tart, pretty dried out. Medium and definite pucker to the body. Pretty great, a nice amount of acidity without being too much, interesting grapiness as well.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2009
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.

TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 9, 2006
Bottled, made from vintage 2003 lambic
Hazy amber pink color, small head. Sour, not very strong aroma with leather notes. Fruity , of course dry, flavor. Raw red gooseberries are there with earthy notes. Juicy and "easy to drink" - Cantillon.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 5, 2008
Bottled at RBESG - thanks to Patrick? for bringing it. A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and acidic with notes of gooseberries and a bit a lactic acid and cork. The flavor is acidic with strong notes of gooseberries as well as notes of wood, leading to a dry and acidic finish. The acidity prickles the palate.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
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.
