3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh out of the barrel at the brewery so it’s definitely "jonge". You can tell the difference in one that’s aged...this is very cloudy, and while it’s tart the flavors are muddled and it doesn’t drink as easily. It’s particularly earthy and dry. Carbonation is non-existent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Glass sampled from a pitcher at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow/brownish yellow in color with very little head formation. It’s pretty flat overall. The nose is lemon rind, must, barnyard, and some light apple. I can definitely tell the difference between this sample and the oude lambik on cask at Moeder. This doesn’t quite have the assertive acidity that the Oude lambik does and it doesn’t seemed nearly as developed. The flavors are softer, but unrefined in comparison. Light, dull mouthfeel that is a little watery and oily. Has a short to moderate finish. While this wouldn’t bet first choice when it comes to Cantillon, it was definitely cool to see the progression of their lambic.

Free glass from brewery. Pours gold/yellow and a little hazy with absolutely no head. The aroma is full of fruits and sours. Very fresh smell. Taste of sour apples, citrus fruits. Really sour tart tongue shriveling flavors. Smack!! Mouthfeel is thin and dry, like white wine with mild sparkling. Nice beer but too much like wine for me.

1 year old poured from the jug at the brewery. Hazy gold color, perfectly still with no head. Light, tart aroma. Light flavor that doesn’t overpower you. A gateway lambic. Classic.

On tap at Cantillon brewery. Orange, slightly hazy, flat. Bitter, dry (very), and a bit sour. Smells of horseblanket, sour. Goes down pretty easily. Prefer the blended gueuzes though.

Fra fat på Cantillon-bryggeriet etter rundtur uten guide: dette blir vel så ekte som overhode mulig.Ulikt det meste annet jeg har smakt, og attpåtil er det godt, ikke bare interessant! En unik opplevelse som jeg gjerne gjør igjen, og nå vet jeg hvordan man finner lettest mulig fram til plassen.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Cask at Fontainas. Deep, glowing orange-gold, tall, fime head. Lemon and grapefruit zest, leather, horse blanket nose. Biting sour and funk, grapefuit, leather, dust. Funky ass. Tiny sweetness. Rather unforgiving, clean, teeth stripping. Astringent and a bit too raunchy.
