UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Very full body out of the bottle. Sour, sweet, wood, and tart flavors seem to swirl together at start, taste and finish. This is a very difficult beer to describe, must be tasted!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased for $5.49 from a retailer closing out a "slow seller." Bottled in 2003. Pale gold in color with the classic, fat-bubbled, white head with aggressive carbonation bubbles rising through the body. Aroma is absolutely inundated with acetobacters that almost take your breath away like malt vinegar sprayed on fish&chips. It is a challenge in itself and is classic Cantillon aroma. Besides that, there is some warmed honey, damp earth, and bubblegum. Flavor is bracing. It is tart enough to wake a person in a coma. The components of the beer-malt, wheat seed, and water are all there but are a distinctly different experience than the funky, tart yeast going on at the same time. Not as integrated as it could be.

1996 Vintage. Mid-golden with a light haze and a thin skin. Extreme sour aromas are acidic and wooden. Astringence in the mouth from the get-go. Huge tart flavor with a vitamin persona and mild alcohol notes. In certain instances, it seems that I’m starting to warm up to this style.
