3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass at the brewery, from a bottle. Chalkboard states 9%. Hazy, dark orange. No head. Nose has sweet, baked apple. Some raisin. Missus thinks buttery fruit cake. I’d go along with that. Lots of depth. Taste still retains the lambic tartness. More of the fruity sweetness. Plenty of body. Quite drying. Finishes sweet and sour. Tasty beer.

The experimentation is awesome. And there’s some good horse blanket here. Perhaps this one needs some time. But so far this one is confusing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Cantillon. Pours a hazy (though clear in Another glass) amber with a small, White head. Aroma is barley wine malty, lots of english caramel, pickles, vinegar, vanilla, caramel, funk and leather. Taste is sweet, but with very bitter orange peel, acidic yeast, funk and just lots of caramel. Fairly well balanced, but just a little weird mixture. Flat carb and oily body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle pour @ Cantillon Brewery, Nov 14 2015) Pours hazy dark copper with a tiny ring of whitish bubbles. Aroma of fairly sweet caramel with soured hints, dried fruits, citrus peels, oxidation, musty wood, some hints of hay and phenols, alcohol quite apparent. On the palate, again mostly sweet with sour/tart and alcoholic notes. Caramel, honey and dried fruit barley wine notes, old hops, oxidation, oaky, light vinegar and funk. Palate dries a lot, softly bitter oak, oxidized and a bit cardboardy, grains. Lots of alcohol on the finish. Fairly full mouthfeel. It’s a weird one, a bit of a non-integrated mess. Very pleased to try it but I don’t think it totally came together. Wish I’d had Goldackerl to know what a high-density lambic could be.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Glass at the brewery. Hazy amber deep orange brown colour thin collar of bubbles. Sweetish caramel aroma. It’s an interesting mix of sweet and sour. Quite arresting. Flowers. Dried old hop flowers So interesting. Complex but hit you in the face at the same time. Wild. Would I want more than a glass? Maybe over a long evening. The finish is outrageous . However all I can taste is the Carignan from before.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Cantillon, Brussel. Aroma of wood, malt, some caramel, sweetish dried fruits, some alcohol. Flavour is rather sour with a hint of sticky sweetness. Body is medium to full. Quite heavy and a bit boozy, a different Cantillon. Not as easily drinkable, indeed a Barleywine take on Gueuze.
