3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange with small white head. Sour aroma with wood, hay and apple. Not that sour flavor for a Cantillon. Lacks bite but nice balance.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Unblended lambic. Haxy yellow colour with a big bubbly white head. Quite hoppy and very sour vinegar aroma with some sweetness. Flavour is sweet, then sour, very sour, and then dry. Quite a sour mouthfeel. A VERY different beer! One a real beer lover must try, no matter what.

Bottled 75 cl, vintage 2000
Chestnut brown, creamy off-white head. Strong aroma of leather and horse blanket. Earthy, tart, lots of "leather flavors". Not so sour than eg. FouíFoune.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Pours a light hazy, deep yellow. A good, staying, albeit small, white head on top. Aroma is very musky, barnyard with some lemony freshness to it. Mouthfeel is extremely dry, it almost feels as if the beer never touches my tongue, but somehow floats a miniscule distance from my tastebuds. Flavour is not as tart as expected, the citric edge peeping through again. The dryness is extreme as well. Not terribly balanced for a lambic, Iíd say.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2008 Re-rating at home, July 2007. 2003 bottle. Dark golden, with a small head. Citrus nose with grapefruit, lemon, some grass. Tart and with a hint of hop bitterness, unless thatís my imagination. Quite a malty lambic, with a good body. Tart and tasty finish and aftertaste.
Dec. 08 rating, 2003 bottle again: Oddly, very, very floral. I taste iris now... The cantillon character lays the ground, with hops definitely there, and malty sweetness, and it all comes together in something not unlike iris or daffodil.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 2003. Itís a fantastic orange golden and slightly hazy color and a nice, creamy head. The cork tells me that this one was bottled in 2002, and now itís November 2006. The aroma and flavour is acidic, not just acidic, extremely much so!! I do get notes of fruit too, but the acidity leads me to believe that it takes a much more hardcore lambic lover to cherish this one, than I am. 1704

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml. bottle; 2004 vintage bottled in 2006. Earthy sour aroma. Hazy orange apricot color with a white head that really left rapidly. Thin to medium bodied with very mild carbonation. The flavor is lambic sour. A bit like earthy green apple. Pineapple? The finish is dry and sour and bitter. Changes from sip to sip. The finish is lactic, and fruity. Something like sucking on a lime peel. Problem: It is what it is, and coming up with what it is not to describe it doesnít work. Good stuff. Very good stuff.
