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 that’s 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.
