3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled in 2001. Pours a reddish orange. Very effervescent with a bubbly orange head. Aroma is very leathery and flowery. Itís sour but there are sweet notes hiding in there. The taste is sour-sweet. Definite sour fruit, more leather and some cardboard along with some lighter earthy notes. Very carbonated mouthfeel and not nearly as sour or acidic as the Fou Foune. Rather smooth lambic, actually, but this may be due to the fact itís at least 3 years old. Nice!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: strong sourness, some mint, honey, pine, rose hips and other flowers, as well as a very sweet smell.
Appearance: murky brown in color, cream colored head.
Flavor: very sour with large minty bite (similar to the toothpaste they give you at the dentist). Some limes, lemons, and floral flavors, as well as, a certain chalkiness. Not as sour as their other beers.
Palate: very smooth, slightly chalky, full-bodied, sour aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, snifter. Hay, light bread malt (M); herb hop aroma (L); horseblanket, cobweb yeast aroma (M); some lemon notes with hints of wine, oak, and vanilla. One of the less aromatic Cantillons I have had. Deep golden body with a tall, foamy white head that is quickly diminishing. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a lightly bitter, heavily acidic finish. Strikingly less sour than other Cantillon brews. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: quite different from it's brothers and sisters, but in a pleasantly suprising sort of way...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light brown/orange color.Small off white head that had a decent hang time.Nice fruity aroma with a fairly sweet/sour aroma coming through quite well.Whoa,this baby really starts out sour with a mild fruit taste and a mild bitterness that slowly comes on as it passes through the pallate.By far this has to be the most spur brew i've ever had,with a good hop presence.Very unique and well done.but since this my first unblended i don't have a refrence for a bad one,but this i like.Thanks to Nexxus for sending this fine brew my way.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours with a golden orange body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is very tart and vinious with a touch of wood and some musty notes. The flavor is also very tart and vinious with oakey wood notes and a slight mustiness. Medium to full bodied and very dry.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned, 750ml 2002 bottling. Amber, good white head and spritzy condition. Lemony citrus nose with a slightly perfumed edge and low barnyard lambic notes. Sweet in the mouth with a trace of caramel and a polished citric tartness that somehow remains smooth. Quite a moderate level of dryness in the mouth with more citric notes and a long lingering funky barnyard note that hides behind your teeth for hours.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark orange coloured, small head. Nice gueuze aroma. Flavour is very soft though. Quite bitter finish, very unusaul for a lambic-brew. I prefer a regular gueuze i think.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2004 Cloudy orange color, short head. Quite normal gueuze aroma, the usual stuff i would say, nicely balanced. For a cantillon it has a quite soft tartness in the taste, but the palate is very extraordinary: very hoppy and bitter and not the lingering tartness. I like the lingering tartness more...

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
2001 bottle. The head was average sized, off-white with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The nose was rank...it reminded me of animal urine. The body was carbonated and hazy with a yellow-gold hue. The flavor was sour and fruity and there was no lacing. This is by far THE WORSE lambic I have had so far.
