thanks dr. bill and sick_girl282 for these bottles. It’s a cantillon, of course i’m going to love it!!! it smells like musty horseblanket with a slight citrus undertone. the taste is absolutely phenomenal with the perfect sourness and horseblanket flavor! dry and delicious to the last drop. i can’t wait to visit the brewery!

Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s sour and tart with a nice barnyard note and a touch of lemon. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

FoolishMortal (987) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2005
2002 vintage. Large foamy white head atop a hazy gold color. Wet rotting vegetation, must, and horseblanket aroma. Bracing sourness that wraps around dusty cobwebs and barnyard flavors. Sourness lingers in the finish, with dried horse manure characters. Mouthfeel is medium light and dry.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottle. Amber beer with a thin white head. Sweetish malt aroma with a lemon/tart finish. Tart flavor with some sweetness at end. Lemon/grape/green apple fruitiness. Refreshing and dry finish. Not nearly as sour as other Cantillon beers I’ve had.

willblake (2632) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2005
09.01.05 375ml bottle, cork date 2003. Paler orange-golden pour with only a trace of head. Aroma is woody, citrus, burning grass, and barnyard. Interesting ashy notes all over the palate, otherwise acid with a blast of sourness. How does that make sense? Juicy pockets of lemony acidity linger around the mouth. Lots of complex grass flavors: dead, old, mulchy, fresh cut, dandelion and clover.

Tasted this at the Cantillon Brewery, Brussels. Have to confess it wasn’t my all-time favourite. Colour was light, slightly cloudy with a small head. Aroma of apples and vinegar. Taste was very sour and had a bitter aftertaste, more grapefruit than hops. People tell me it’s an acquired taste.

Robe blonde légèrement voilée. Arômes de liège. Saveurs sûres et acides de pomette. Subtilités intéressantes au niveau des saveurs aigres.

Thanks Chuck! Poured from a 12 oz bottle all over Chuck’s laptop... I eventually got to sample this beer after he was done cleaning. The aroma is very strong. Mostly, it smells like leather. There’s also some sourness to it that initially hides the leather aroma until you get used to the sour. The leather smells like one of those nice supple leather jackets that are $500+. Anyway, the appearance is a very hazy straw gold color with a thin white head ring. The palate is fizzy and almost comes off as REALLY salty. The flavor is a very sour grape and apple with some leather undertones. Kinda has a flavor that reminds me of nickel as well.

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2005
12 oz w/ cork and when I popped it I popped it all over me and my craptop. a orangish color w/ a small white head well laced, visible carbonation cloudy color and the head is short lived. First scent is barnyard/horseblanket then some very sour cherries and leather and a little grapefruit and an odd sweetness in the finish too great complexity here. Palate is highly carbonated fairly well couted. Flavor is sour/tart cherries some more sour some grapes too an acidicness that makes my mouth almost sweaty. A good beer as far as lambics go, but still an odd style from my viewpoint.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 16, 2005
bottled in 2001-pours hazy yello wit ha big white head. big vineous, funk, horseblanket aroma with notes of sour grapes, lemon, seltzer water and green grapes. fizzy palate as expected. lots of sourness from the brett. I bet this was a good vintage to sample this beer. I have a bottle that im going to age for a while. A pretty decent lambic in my book.
