3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jar @ the brewery, Brussels. 5 months old. Rated on 28.2.2013.
Had this after the brewery tour. Pours a cloudy yellow colour and a white foamy head. Aroma of very raw and pungent lemon zest, grapefruit and surprisingly strong grassy notes. Flavour is also very raw and citrusy with even stronger grapefruiity notes, white grapes, grass and lactic acid. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a sharp, citrusy, bitter finish. Raw and aggressive as expected.

At the brewery. Almost clear golden liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of lemons, grain, apples, barnyard and minerals. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of lemons, apples and funk. Light to medium bodied with no carbonation. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass @ Cantillon from a pitcher. Hazy light amber served still with just some small bubbles around the edge of the glass. Aroma is musty barnyard, damp earthy oak, vinegar and some bitter citrus peel. Flavor is super tart, sour and acidic with a tiny amount of malt sweetness and bitterness. Light body and no carbonation. Very odd beer, served room temperature and still takes a bit of getting used to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy yellow with a fairly large white head. Aroma of mild barnyard funk, a little citrus zest and some moderate horse blanket. Flavour is very citric, sour and also incredibly bitter, with loads of dry citrus zest, incredibly potent mouth-drying hops, and mild funk. One of the most bitter lambics I’ve had. Finishes dry, citric and bitter. Good stuff, but not among my favourite Cantillons.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Sample at Cantillon brewery. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, no foam, no carbonation.
Nose: oranges, pineapples, apple, grains are very prominent, barnyard, rather sweet as well though.
Taste: starts rather fruity but goes very dry afterwards. Very bitter, lots of grains. It has a large dry out effect, it’s somewhat sour but compensated nicely with the amount of sugar remaining in this beer.
Altogether a very nice drinking beer with a balance between sourness and sweetness.

Sample @ Cantillon brewery. The guy pouring it mentioned this was ’eleven or twelve months’ old. Slightly hazy golden pour with a moderate bubbly white head. The nose is sherry, some tart apple and raspberry fruits. Lightly wood. Nice soft earthy flavors. More apple, hints of caramel, mildly dry wood in the finish. Soft sourness. Super drinkable stuff. Good.

On cask at Moeder Lambic. Pours slightly hazy yellow/orange with a lofty white head. The smell is grapefruit, citrus, lemon...nice nose. The taste is a little must, lemon, mild pink grapefruit with a slight malt sweetness. Light in body and a little slippery with only a hint of effervescence. Great stuff!
