Bottle @ Cantillon. Large fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Good lacing. Light cloudy golden colour. Aroma was lovely dusty, barnyard (or like the Cantillon building aroma), tart like notes with hint of champagne, unripe fruit, vinegar, leather. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and heavy dry texture. Moderated sour notes, hint of sweetness maybe from the younger lambic that was blended in. Light dry and sour finish. This was the way to experience the Cantillon brew. Belgium 25-05-2007

Trade from Ross, thanks man! Pours a rich orange color with white bubbly head that fades quickly. Very effervescent like champagne, the brewer makes the same comparison on the label and he’s 100% correct. Aroma is very sour with a slight aroma of burnt plastic, some slight apple and citrus notes which play beautifully with the intense sourness. Taste is amazing with light apple and citrus flavors, mustiness, and wood notes. Very sour with with light tartness, this beer is completely well balanced and very complex. Damn I love Cantillon.

My friend tell me to drink this "Belgium" beer and I try drinking it because I like Belgium beers. But this is too light. Is this Belgium lager or Belgium Ale? I think lager it must, because of the sulfur and rubber. Why not cleaner like real Belgium beers!
