ruigo (1462) - 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.

Rosslew (310) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2015
Beautifully aromatic with a sourish lemon tickle up nose. Undoubtedly tart but not harsh and there is some citrus sweetness later. But it tickled the tongue. To be shared. Oh so good. 3std drks, 750bottle, 5% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted a sample at the brewery in Brussels. Zesty, earthy and woody on both - the nose and the palate.

BOSSbrewer (2522) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle (375ml) at Porch Nite thanks to Raith which he purchased at the brewery. Pours a clear yellowish with a very thin head. High carbonation. Aroma is lemons, tartness, slight hay and lemongrass. Flavor follows and is lemony and quite tart. Finishes really dry. A very nice beer.

Moss,sourness in aroma. Strong almost citryssy aroma. Amber color on light side. Tart sourness in taste bit of grapefruit peel. Mold maybe also. Refreshing. Difficult layers of taste. Gets better after few sips.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. The pour from this 750 mL bottle is a hazy golden yellow color with a smaller white head. The aroma is pretty damn good. There is a lot of sour, Brett, and some lemon or citrus on the back end. The flavor is much of the same. It’s really sharp and tart with some grapes in there with the lemon. I am also picking up some apple peel. The mouth feel is a little light, and the carbonation doesn’t seem like it’s up there as high as it should be. The aftertaste is lingeringly sour and fruity. This is a damn good beer. Wish I had more Cantillon
