(75 cl. Embouteillée le 16 mai 2011) Un beau corps doré bien trouble. Une tête blanche toute en largesse. Un nez qui est très floral et très pimenté. Unique! On est aussi très collé aux soubresauts habituels de la maison. Comment ne pas aimer la signature Cantillon? Donc, au-delà des délicates fleurs et des piments broyés, une salve bien nourrie par les citrons et par la douce folie des microbes. Les saveurs sont aussi dominées par les fleurs aux pétales épicés et par un aspect rustique tout à fait charmant. Des notes aigres qui s’épanchent sur ma langue et des notes surettes qui grandissent avec intelligence. Les instances citronnées qui prévalent dans le premier verre sont accompagnées un peu plus loin par la franche et jeune camaraderie des raisins blancs. L’impression que laisse en bouche ce liquide est mené par une main de maître: le corps est sculptural tandis que le pétillement est soutenu. Et la texture, une caresse pour la langue. Difficile de faire mieux. En finale, une ode aux notes poivrées et asséchantes. Franchement, un pur délice.

On tap at Moeder Lambic St Gilles a few weeks ago. From notes, Pours transparent and gold with a small white head. Nose is grassy and a bit hoppy but I know this is from the elderberry flower. Bit of sour peak through in the form of lemon and vinegar. Great floral boquet overall. Tast is sweet up front but gives way to a sour and bitter finish. Long lasting aftertaste. Soft. Subtle. Wonderful on tap, but I think I prefer the bottle with some age.

From notes. First reviewed 1/23/2012. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. 5/16/2011 bottle. This looks a lot liek a gueuze. A light golden straw color, transparent everywhere and even more clear at the edges. A soft floral sweetness dominates the aroma, with a soft funky back. Lemon zest, white pepper, and some biscuity malt provide support. The flavor starts and stays tart, with an overlaying flowery sweetness. There is a lemon zest sourness that closes out the flavor. Lemon tartness and some floral funkiness dominate the flavor, but it works out well, unlike Iris. The body and carbonation, like the appearance, are standard Cantillon. Medium, slightly creamy carbonation, and a medium body. I was pleasantly surprised by this; I was expecting something similar to Iris, which I did not like, but instead it was more like a slightly floral Classic Gueuze, which is great. I would drink this again for sure.

draft @ moeder lambic. Floral herbal aroma. Pours golden blonde with a white head. Floral notes come out first with a strong tartness with citrus and pineaplle notes. The herbal flavors balance the tartness quite well. Excellent!

Thanks to dimenhetfield for opening this. The nose has a distinct chili pepper smell and was also floral. The taste mixed those same things with a nice tartness. Very unique. Not like any other sour I’ve ever had.

Bottle split amongst friends. Been wanting to try this for some time now. Very pleasant aroma. Hints of flowers and sourness. Flavor wasn’t in your face sour but just enough to make you pay attention. Great beer from Cantillon.

MOLA_DK (263) - DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is dominated of elderflowers, some funky notes in the background. Not as tart as many lambics, weird oily-like texture (not unplessant). Elderflowers in the taste aswell.

Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/12/2011. This fruit lambic pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is funky, tart, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied fruit lambic. The malts are fruity and sweet, funky and barnyard with some oak. The hops are earthy. The funk, must, barnyard, tartness and sweetness are equally blended in this beer. Lively carbonation. Expertly layered. WOW. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

This poured a semi cloudy yellow colorw ith a white head. Aroma was light funk, grass, herbal and earthy notes, and soem flowers too. Flavor was medium tartness, light funjk, and then an onslaufght of a strange herbal character, must be the fruit?

Had this at Ratebeer’s Horny Devil Pittsburgh Winter Tasting 2012. Big thanks Justin Lithy! I never thought I would have the chance to have this beer clear my lips and so for this opportunity I am very grateful. Big tart farmy aroma, typical cantillon. Clear, almost pale lager in appearance but has a little orange in there. No head. Has a meaty mild friendly olfactory. Easy titillating fun on the taste buds. Easy and nifty to say the least. A very refined limbic at that. Is not over the top and is friendly to sip. Goes down the hatch with a happy feeling. A very good sour co2 feel that I really enjoy. Unique in its after taste. Smooth fine sizzle. Overall a really cool beer experience and I have lithy to thank for it.
