2014 bottle. Little hazy orange color, almost no head. Super funky aroma, leather, horse blanket, barnyard and all that wild stuff. Also small vinegar note.

Very complex beer, give lots of plesure and fun. One of best.

Batavi (122) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 1e Cantillon, die ik proef, Gueuze 100% Lambic Bio, uitgeschonken in Cantillon degusteer glaasje. Goudgele, honingachtige iets troebele kleur, met kleine en dunne witte schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt, een dunne ring van schuim blijft op het bier drijven. De geur is bijzonder, witte wijnachtig, bierkelder/barnyard, hooi, citroengras, zelfs ook kaasachtige aroma's. De smaak is complex, de eerste tonen zijn behoorlijk zuur en kort daarop vrij bitter. Door de behoorlijke carbonatie heeft het iets weg van brut champagne, maar dan met meer zuur en bitter erin. Tonen van citrusfruit; citroen, limoen en grapefruit. Witte wijnazijn en wat houtige tonen, met een zeer droge en subtiel bittere hopfinish. Fraai en erg mooi gebalanceerd Gueuze Lambic bier, ik ben benieuwd naar de andere Cantillon varianten die ik ook nog in het wijnrek heb liggen. De Gueuze blijft een bijzondere biersoort en deze Cantillon is een perfecte keuze voor de liefhebber van deze artisanale bieren. Een bezoek aan de brouwerij staat zeker ook op de planning als ik in Brussel ben.

ruigo (1512) - PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2015
37.5cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Sour, brett and acid citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is a multi layered experience with tart notes and some acid feeling. Overall, a good lambic.
