UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013
2012-10-02, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 9-5-9-5-18=46
Cloudy light amber color with copper shades, and a generous compact head. The aroma is fantastic, with cellar smell, lemony acidity, and most of all a cheesy character that binds all together and adds complexity. The mouthfeel is very smooth; it has a nice delicate malt flavor, but most of all an evident citrusy character, mostly grapefruit and pink grapefruit; the acidity is very moderate compared to other Cantillon lambics; the final has a correct bitterness level and mild astringency.
Some Drie Fontainen was more complex, this is more straight forward.
2004-01-24, bottle; brewed in 2000, bottled in 2001, sampled in 2004, 9-5-8-4-17=43
Beautiful gold to orange color, persistent perlage, generous thick head. Wonderful aroma, biting: magnesia, wood, malt, dry flowers, hay, fruits. Difficult, astringent, pungent; sour, but with the necessary malt body. Strong sour and bitter end, fruity, like bitter oranges.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Jimmy’s No. 43 during a Lovullo Tasting Session. Pours amber-gold with a soft, lingering white head. Plenty of bread and yeast in the aroma, along with light fruitiness. More fruit in the tart flavor, specifically lemon and strawberry. Some mild hop bite in the tail. Very dank. Lightly warming with soft carbonation. I found it akin to drinking flowers, which may or may not be your cup of tea. Pretty good, to give a highly subjective summation

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Bottle. Amber, thin white head, sour lemon aroma, subtle funk and cereal aroma. Trademark mouth puckering from a lambic. Acidic, sour, and more funk in mouth and finish. I mean I do like it. Sourness has mineral/metal quality to it and grapefruit on the finish.. 4.3/5. Re-rate. Half bottle in La Brocante Brussels May 2013. fresh lively hoppy perfectly sour, lovely. Bottle from some place in Belgium. possibly Noel Cuveliers
It’s like licking a swimming pool wall (chlorine) that has been draped in hops, whilst having a horse shitting on it and an acidic mustard and white wine vinegar salad dressing drizzled over the top.
Intense and certainly not for the faint hearted.
For me I think this beer is better fresher

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dezent säuerlicher Antrunk, deutlich herb, was von der Holzigkeit zu kommen scheint. In Teilen essigähnlich, diese Säuerlichkeit nimmt im Mittelteil bereits wieder ab, bleibt aber dennoch deutlich vorhanden. Dieser etwas merkwürige Ton scheint mit der Zeit süßer und bekömmlicher zu werden, man brauch tatsächlich erst einmal Eingewöhnungszeit. Kein Bier für Jedermann!

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 there’s a rubbery touch to it that I don’t like. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 070526
Bottle, 75cl at Esbjerg Beerfestival. It’s 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
