4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Labeled 2003, bottled 2005.)
Dark golden/orange colour with a slight haze. Ok head. Typical lambic-aroma, maybe a little more subtle than ususal. The taste starts off sourish with a little sweet background but it soon gets reisiny hop bitter, very hop bitter. Quite unusula fot a lambic but I liked it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of my secret santa. Pours copper/red with huge white head, made of tiny bubbles. Huge sour lemon, slightly tart aroma. Flavor has the same lemon sour, but also some red fruit maybe, cherry? Body seems more oily than the Cantillon’s I’ve tried. Very well done. Can’t go wrong so far with these guys.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Label says 2003. Best by 2015.
Cloudy orange colour. Almost completely still, except for the cream top when poured. Aroma is bit subtle, though rich. Gastric juice, wood, unripe apple, berries. And notes of fresh hops. Something smooth and creamy about the aroma. Flavour is very tart, still not very astringent, and there is a slight(!) harsh bitterness/dryness in the end. Woody dry, and tart. Not overly sourish. Enjoyable but something is missing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Obvious aour and tart aromas with some barnyard, but I also get an unusual creaminess hiding in the background. Pours a cloudy dull orange with a big white head with decent retention. Don’t recall ever having a Cantillon with this big of a head. I find that unusual creaminess ever so slightly up front with the usual sour and tart finish and a touch of woodiness that lingers into the aftertaste. Much better than the 1900 Bruscela.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 (Draught@Pikkulintu) Hazy amber with no head. Tart aroma with cherry and dried fruit. Malty, very nicely tart flavor with slight oakiness and oud bruin style. Also a bit orvalish. Almost medium body with flat carbonation. An enjoyable mix of Belgian ale, Sour Ale and Lambic. (Bottled, was 7-4-7-3-14=3.5) Very hazy, orange color with a small, tight head. Somewhat tart, fruity and earthy aroma with some hops. Tart, quite acidic flavor with a strong lactic acid finish and somewhat bitter hopping. Medium-bodied, sour and acidic palate with soft carbonation. A nice, earthy brew, but with quite much acidity. Interesting, but not as good, as the regular gueuze or lambic.

Bottled. Hazy orange coloured. Classic lambic aroma with notes of wood and horseblanket. Grassy and hoppy notes in the flavour and even some bitterness in the finish underneath the sourness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Orange golden colour with a poorly lasting head. Aromas of grapefruit and horseblankett mixed with earthy hop notes. On the palate there is loads of acidity but also more bitterness than usual for a lambic. Very complex. As allways a superb brew by Cantillon.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 the aroma was a sour smoke, but seemingly not acidic. it poured a cloudy dark apricot color with no head. the taste was undescribable, since i didn’t know what any of it was. i should remember not to inhale when i drink this beer. it grows on you as it warms up. but not a lot.
