3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at Moeder Lambic. Pour is a peachy yellow, mostly transparent with a thin off white head. The nose has a touch of lemon with a nice dusty funk to it, cob webbs and light leather, more lemon with some golden fruits faintly weaved in at the end. The taste is extremely dusty and funky, very old bookshelf. There is some tart lemon that comes in as peaches, golden fruits and some floral bitter hops present themselves behind in order. The body is light, very gentle, soft carbonation and rather dry in the finish. Funky is the focus, age may add some fruit as this is probably a newer oude lambic.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Orange coloured and very clear. Tiny white thin bubbly head that soon fades. Aroma is very sour, bit of lemon and lots of stinky funkiness. Lovely taste, sourness and almost vinous, maybe a bit of wood too, or was it my imagination. Touch of citrus. Very flat and soft in the mouth. Finish is mellow and fruity. Lovely!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From draft at DHVL. Together with The Troch and Mort subite.
Pours yellow, a bit more head then the others but dissapears pretty quick.
No carbonation. The typical Cantillon lambik taste, I really miss the soureness in their lambik, it has almost none. It is cellar, old hops, dusty though.
Not the best lambik of all 3, I prefer Mort Subite. An easy one for blind tasting though.

Sample at the brewery from Jean. 18 month old lambic that was completely still. It reminded me of the geuze obviously except the palate was thinner and there was less complexity. Though it was still a great tasting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the brewery, pour is a nice pale yellow, the taste is much lighter in souriness then blended gueuze. I would definitely have liked a bit more life to come out. But it has a light souriness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2yr old, draught at GBBF 2011. It pours flat golden yellow. The nose is sour farmyard, soft fruit, light spice, cider and wood. The taste is hay, grass, wheat, tart lemon, tangy lime, grapefruit, white grape, cheese, wood and mouth-puckering sourness, with a pleasant dry-tart finish. Light body and next to no carbonation. Massively drinkable and thirst-quenching.

Bottle from 4th May, 2010. Poured a pale straw colour with a fair beige head. Great lemony sour aroma with some barnyard mustiness and barley. Lingering lemony sour flavour, barnyard funk again and a backbone of barley and honey. Superb!
