Countbeer (5309) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle: Served in a flute: Vintage 2011 (just couldn’t wait any longer). So, now it is time to rate this one. Jean didn’t let me buy this one in his shop, but luckily I found it somehere else. I hope he trusts people to sell his nice Lambics to and take them home to share it with friends or drink it alone with time rather than to keep them at the brewery, ah well who am I to say so, the man must have his good reasons. More medium than bigger sized, lively and fairly quick fading harsher foamy white head on top of a an almost almost clear yellow colored Lambic. The last filled glasses are good hazy, beautiful equally hazy, looks really nice and even seems to taste better. The aroma’s are a sublime mix of mostly flowers and wood, with some good hints of wild yeast, burned rubber, citronella, manure, wet old cellar and a slight hint of sulphur. The flavours are marked by the typical Cantillon sour wild yeast notes with nice earthy tones, there’s stone, tractor tire/rubber, yoghurt, flowers, wet cellar ish, straw, old dried hops and hop flowers, rope, dust, a hint of abricot and a dry touch to it. Well balanced and tasty. Low to slightly medium carbonation, soft sparkly mouthfeel at first than it turns a bit dry, a good medium body with a slightly fuller tint and a texture between watery and creamy. Very well balanced, easy drinkable and that smell with those flowers, chapeau! Another really good beer from Cantillon!

Simply put, delicious. There is a white pepper taste along with the elderflowers which actually taste Green still. I was thinking the elderflower taste may have calmed down a little but it is still potent after a year in the bottle and creates a green apple pucker. Herbal brett, lacto other lambic style sour notes come together well and play perfectly with the flowers. I was not expecting to like this as much as I am right now.

75cl bottle,2012,from Belgiuminabox.Shared with Saun.Poured a hazy golden colour with medium white head which faded quickly.Immediate aroma of elderflower with grass,hay and lemon following soon after.Taste of elderflower straight away with grass,lemon,hay,slight barnyard all in there too.Very tasty and interesting lambic done in the way only Cantillon do.Would love the oppurtunity to try this again after 5 years maturing or so but found it impossible to wait for even 5 weeks!Very nice.

A hazed gueuze with a thin white head. In aroma, loads of lactic acid, flower water, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice lemony gueuze with light mint leaves, lemon juice, delicious. At the REAL gastropub, Zwanze day, Dec. 1 2012.

Aroma: very floral and herbal, grass, hay, lemon, some earth and funk. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, white head dissipates to a ring fairly quickly, some spotty lacing. Flavor: strong herbal notes, berries, cut grass, crisp citrus, some hay and funk, moderately acidic, light malts and a touch of wheat. Light body, medium carbonation, dry and crisp finish. Interesting brew.

Bottle split 3 ways at Prohibition Pig. Nose is floral, dill pickle, lemon, kiwi, and musty funk. Taste is nicely tart with a very unique lightly melon sweetness and a floral bite. I really like this guy.
