4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Combination of citrusy hop and typical brett/sour ale funk. Interesting and pleasant.
Appearance: Long last, white head. Light amber color, good clarity.
Flavor: Sourness is present, but finishes with a little hop bitterness. Somewhat sweet-sour, with some oaky tannins in the finish. Complex, lovely.
Palate: Sour, but not overpowering. Not harsh, but very refreshing.
Overall: Excellent brew, interesting and trailblazing. I could see many homebrewers trying this, I think I will.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 2003. White creamy and astoshingly high and lasting head for a lambic. Hazy orange body. Acidic dry horseblanket aroma. Mild more lemon than grapefruit flavor plus cheesy notes. Definately different. Dry mouthfeel and short aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
CT V. Aroma was of sour and some funky, horsey, breadiness, with some cheesiness coming through. Flavor was pretty tart and sour. Not to bad but I struggled to drink a lot of this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well this didn’t start off good... the cork had soaked completely through and started to rust the cap. It looks and appears to be salvageable though. Light golden color with a massive head. Subdued sour aroma with an almost hay loft quality. A little flowery. The sour comes roaring back in the flavor. Very dry. I think the fresh hopping is noticeable. The bitterness is quite outstanding. Oddly enough, it tasted really wrong the first few sips. But now about half way through my glass, this is really quite tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Columbus Tasting V: Ugh unblended lambic. Hazy copper color with a white head. Aroma sour and funky, some yeast. Flavor, tart, sour funky, some lemon, acidic. A little sweetness, but not much. This was a lot better than I thought it would be.

Sampled at Columbus tasting. Poured murky light orange. Tasted like sour cheese to me! Very strange brew indeed, although, not nearly as bad as I was expecting!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well after rating number 2000 I guess the Columbus crew felt I should finally complete my styles so Sliffy and Puddintane and Beervirgin72 all brought a bottle of this - Thanks! - Pours cloudy amber with a slight white head. Aromas of swiss cheese, hay, and some grass. Flavor is cheese, sourness, a little candi sugar, and a touch of oak. Acidic and sour on the palate with a dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small fizzy white lasting head, spare lacing though. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (earth, musty, leaves) with notes of cask and wood. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and an astringent finish. Average duration, light acidity, moderate acidity and heavy bitterness. Damn, Cantillon makes a TRUE Lambic.
