3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly murky dull straw coloured body. Aroma of limes seems to jump out of the glass. Lots of citrus in the taste, grapefruit, lemon and lime, not as sour as I expected but that probably made it drink better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium amber and orange color. The aroma is slightly sweeter than I expected. Flowers, limes, a hint of vinegar and barnyard all all present. There is also some old musty cheese and leather. Interesting aroma that is more earthy than fruity. The taste is very leathery. Not nearly as sour as I expected. There are limes, and some light piney hops. This is dank and musty. Very interesting twist on the style. I prefer a little more tartness in a Cantillon.

750ml. bottle. Nice golden color with a medium white head. Aroma hit me from three feet away. Typical Cantillon aroma.
Musty, tart, slight metallic, wet leather. Very dry on first sip, sucking all the moisture from my mouth. Becomes less and less dry with each sip. Tart fruits abound, along with some straw and a touch of hops. Very nice.

pours a cloudy medium gold color. small head and just a little bit of lacing with a bitter and fruity aroma. Strong vinous notes in the aroma and palate. The flavor is very tart and warming with slightly musty hints in the aftertaste. Another great Cantillon!

2001: Pour is murky orangey brown with a big off white dense head...smell is indeed tart with some funk and apples...quite sour up front, turning surprisingly bitter toward the finish...quite tasty...but a lot hoppier than Iíd anticipated...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Year 2000 bottle. Orange/brown with a big rocky off-white foam. Aromas are typically Cantillon in its farmyard character - tart, musty with some cheesiness. Flavours are lemon with grapefruit bitterness (and lots of it). Lacks the mustiness of the aroma which has been replaced by a zestier citrus bite , a good level of sparkle and a crisp sharp pine bitterness. Not as jowl jangling as the true lambics but this is still another good Cantillon.

Not what i expected, very similar taste like orval, pine-tree taste, grapefruit and a small hops flavour.

Bottle @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph. Edition 2000. Very tart aroma, with big notes of fresh grapefruit. Hazy orange beer, with a big foamy white head. Loads of grapefruit in the flavor, very tart and quite dusty.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, label said 2000, cork said 2001. Vinegar, oak and very fruity aroma. Golden/amber color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet start, pretty soon an aggresive sourness comes in followed by a nasty bitterness. The flavors are also less fruity than the aroma. Pretty thin actually. Didnít like it although Iím into lambic a lot and this comes pretty close.
