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!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 2003. It’s 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 it’s 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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a really nice looking amber-orange in color with a light and fizzy white head.
S: Plenty of acidity and green fruit notes. I pick up apples and grapes with some lemon. A strong oak aroma with a somewhat subdued funk.
T: A nice tartness up front with some fresh sour apples and lemons. The back end is actually a bit bitter with lots of oak and tannins. A bit of must and leather finish things off.
M: The body is medium with a fair amount of carbonation, especially for a lambic that is so "young" in the bottle. A nice acidity and dry finish.
D: Not my favorite of the Cantillon beers, but still really nice and better than many American sours. A really pleasant beer to sip on after watching the Sharks beat the Wings.

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

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 Aroma has hops, oak, yoghurt, honey, mango and apple. Full bodied beer, almost thick. Not too sour taste in which I detected hops, yoghurt, citrus, oak, pineapple, pinetree and mango. In fact too much to describe. Amazingly complex lambic beer. With every sip you discover more tastes and aromas. One of the great beers of this world!
2000-version, tasted 12.07.06: dark golden color, clear. Lasting creamy head. Flowery and earthy hops and grapefruit in the aroma. Grapefruit flavor with a deep earthy and again flowery hopcharacter.Oily mouthfeel. Well matured and eased down sourness. Oaky aftertaste with ash. Astonishing beer, deep and complex and o, so delicious, The rating is well deserved.
