3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled - Swan & Rushes - Leicester. A mildly hazy bronze coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is dry, sharp and harshly acidic. The taste is puckeringly sour. dry as a bone, and tongue wrenchedly acidic. Sounds dreadful reading this back, but ooh itís good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2010 Bottle, 75cl corked. Unclear, orange pour, with a small off-white head. Rubber and citrus, especially grapefruit, in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy as well, mostly grapefruit here too, with cellar to follow. Nice, astringent mouthfeel. A really tooth-cleansing beer, quite nice, but thereís a rubbery touch to it that I donít like. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 070526
Bottle, 75cl at Esbjerg Beerfestival. Itís a hazy, golden beer with hints of head. Citrusy, horsey and barnyardish nose. Citrus, barnyard, horseblanket, sourness and a faint bitterness in the mouth, bonedry and puckering. A quite lovely and quenching beer. 091023

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle provided by csbosox at his tasting 7/3. This was my first unblended lambic, and it is definitely a memorable beer. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a thin off-white head. The nose is dominated by some serious funk. Sweat socks, yeast, and bready notes. Light to medium-bodied, tart and dry. The flavor was definitely superior to the nose: dry, sour, and neutral. It reminds me of sour apple absent any real sweetness; very interesting. Thanks again for breaking this one out, Chris.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
37.5 cL bottle (2003). Pours deep orange to amber with a little lacing head. Acidic and slight woody aroma, no sweat notes - nice :) Flavour has some distinct wood notes together with a nice sourness. Maltiness is identifyable beneath the sourness and in the finish. This maltiness makes the finish together with a woody/smoke note and bitterness. Nice dry, citric and sour. A floral note keeps lingering long after the finish - very interesting.

(2005) from csbosox. Enjoyed at the csbosox tasting 7/3. Pour is cloudy orange-yellow, with a very small white head. Aroma is a bit of a wildflower funk and bright citrus. Taste is very deep and complex, with earthiness, bright citrus flower and more of the funk.

750ml bottle provided by csbosox
Bright amber with some white head. Citrus aroma with some leather and cob webs. It starts of pretty fruity, then you get bombarded by a huge tart, acidic bitter slap in the face. Meduim body. This is rippiní up my stomach already.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: mm, leather, sour, musty, mushroom, vinous, enormous, brett, insanely good. White currants, horse. Taleggio cheese, unripe apple, lactic acid, acrid.
Appearance: cloudy, greytoned orange with white head in the same tone, although very little and peculiar (looks chemical and thick).
Flavour: oh, leather, sour, wheat malt... I can reckon a slight sweetness. Very special. Some salinity. Sour, but not at all very sour. Almost bitter.
Palate: smooth, lovely, bit ístickyí, thin, old and weird.
Itís really better on draft.

Absolutely heavenly. Sour and tart. Poured with like a Lambic should, lots of carbonation and a nice fluffy head which diminishes after a minute or so. What a refreshing beer. Great complex flavors with a long finish. One of the best Lambics out there. Cantilon makes some incredible beers!
