Sampled at the Cantillon brewery, Brussels.
Sample was 16 mounths old. No head. Solid golden color and almost perfectly clear. Wood, pepper and stable aroma. Dry and a bit tart. The taste is like a mix between still cider and dry white wine but with a small bitterness. Fresh.

Old wood wet towels and huge light fruity tart aroma. Taste of tart cherries and lemons with background of wood and yeasty gym socks. In a good way of course :)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at La Soirée des Brasseurs. Clear golden with no head. Aroma is cheesy, barnyard and a definite woody presence. Lactic tartness is pungeant, wood and some lemon. Nice palate, very dry and no carbonation, you really can appreciate Cantillon’s lambic. Drinks very well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(18mo from ceramic jug at the brewery, July 25 2015) Pours slightly hazy medium gold with no head. Aroma has tart crabapple, cider and white wine vinegar, wet basement and mulch, some wood, old hops come through a bit with hay. On the palate, moderately acetic, apple vinegar and skin, a little citrus, maybe underripe peaches, oak fairly prominent towards the finish. There are dried leaves in the finish, softly medicinal, funk is dry and dusty. Aftertaste dry and lightly bitter, light bodied. Pretty damn drinkable unblended lambic, maybe a bit more time to get woody would be nice. Think I actually prefer it to the regular gueuze though, in small pours.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice really golden color. Bubbly white head that soon vanish. Funky tart green apples, some vinegar and oak in the aroma. Medium body and a quite flat carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Sour tart green apples, fruity, vinegar and oak in the flavor. Not the best from this brewery, but quite nice a summer evening.
