4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2004 bottle shared @ Spuyten Duyvil for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours a brickish orange color with a puffy white head that quickly settles. The aroma is fuller than most other Cantillons, with the hop character balancing out some of the typical funk and some clear contribution from the malts in a form of almost like toasted rye bread. On the palate, the tartness dominates, but the mouthfeel is rich and there is a crisp zing from the hops. Cool beer.

Dull hazy orange gold, creamy medium sized head eventually stabilizes to a thin layer. Aroma - lambic, funk, dried out hops. Quite dry, and rather mild. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Highly drinkable.

375 ml bought at the brewery, bottled 2010. Pours orange, not a lot of retaining head. Of course it’s sour, but not to any extreme levels. Rather, the sourness is made up of many different sour flavors such as lemon, vinegar and green grapes. Has some floral notes too, and a present, but light, bitterness. Excellent lambic, served well as my birthday treat.

Hazy copper with no head. Aroma of wheat and white grapes, very pungent. Taste of dry white wine, grain, funk... About a dozen things I can’t even name. Fantastic.

Old bottle bought at a dodgy store. Popped the cap, saw rust. "Flat beer for me" I thought. Popped the cork, and, three seconds later - gush! Lost an ounce or two to that. Damn. Inspection of cork revealed it to be a 2000 bottling. Aroma of sour. Starts sour, but much "lighter" than regular Cantillon - I can taste some fruit along with the sour. Sourness wanes as it goes, and it gets almost pleasant by the end of it. The usual barnyard detrius flavours, a trace of hops. I'm still not completely cold on lambics, but I enjoyed this one the most so far.

Bottled 2001:No life in cork removal.Gloden oarnge,with a milky,medium sized head.Fresh aroma of oak,must-spicy yeast,and grassy hops.Palate is spritzy and watery.Little to no malts followed by a woody,acidity with a very dry,lightly hoppy finish.Malt backbone is really lacking with the sourness that is presented.Really loses body in the drinking process.

Cantillon Friday Night Tasting Session, Providence RI
Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Nose of barnyard funk, mostly musty and slightly dull. Wood lingers in the background. Initial taste is very sour that swarms your mouth as you begin to pucker. Citrus fruits and oak are mild. Finishing with a lemon rhine bitterness that is very dry. The palate duration seems to be stopped in its place, quenching for more. Medium body and definitely interesting.

Bottiglia 75cl, ordinata su birraland e bevuta a casa.
Ambrata con schiuma fine e persistente.
Meno acida di una lambic comune, molto amara e luppolata sul finale, equilibrio fantastico.
