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.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 2003 version.
cloudy orange, thick smooth offwhite head.
nice subdued sourish aroma, stable, hops. very delicate, complex and well blended.
flavor is sour, slightly acidic, hoppy, not much stable. quite refreshing, good terrace-in-the-sun-relax sour beer. [7,3,7,3,17].
75 cl. bottle stamped 19 mar 2013., tasted 29 dec 2013.
dark orange medium offwhite head. aroma is an intersting mix of fresh hops and sour lambic. the hops are sweet and flowery. flavor is pretty souirish, a little more citrussy than i remember other cantillons,and more citrussy than other lambic’s and gueuze’s, like if it was spiced with a citrussy herb. ends a little hoppy bitter. this is a complex, unconventional sour.

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, I’d say.
