3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at CPK, London. Two-year old version. Pours clear gold, no head. Good tangy nose, hints of butter, bread, grass. Light sweet with some sturdy sourness, light apples, grass, light tangy fruits. Light bodied with very, very fine carbonation- it’s almost flat. Very clean, tangy finish, some mild tart berries, light grassy hops. It’s a tasty well nuanced beer. I actually don’t get much the distinctive, grassy/earthy Cantillon character, but it’s still good stuff.

From bottle (I think) at GBBF. Thanks! Hazy orange, still, no real head. Aroma is dirty and lemony, dried apricots, tangy sourness. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apples, lemon, dry and sour, punchy sourness with a tangy, boozey, harsh finish. Bit acidic for me.

Cantillon lambik on tap at Moeder it was a fairly clear gold with a soapy white head. The taste was sharply sour and metallic giving me lemon tartness in the finish but I felt it needed more age. Jonge 3 while a few days later at the brewery I had the 18 month old version - it was way way better. It was a bright clear gold. The taste was lightly tart with a bit of the horsey Brett. Oude 3.9

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
