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.

Sample@Quintessence. 3 years old aged. Bière quasi plate offrant un nez fleuri, boisé avec une fine acidité développant des esters alcooliques. Le corps est fort boisé, soyeux voire même un peu mielleux avec une amertume moyenne assez acre à la fin.

Drank at the bruery. 18 month old. Good stuff! Pours almost clean amber with almost no head. Aroma is just clean! Very rural and tart. Moldy oak, leather and weak barnyard. Really natural and nice aroma. Taste is gentle and tart with notes of citrus, oak, weak vinegar and a nice dryness. No carbonation suits this beer. Very romantic and idyllic beer to drink year round.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 18 months old at Cantillon. Dark golden with no head. Deep grains with very bitter lemon peel, follow by a sour slightly acidic fruitiness and a strong bitter woody finish. Didn't expect it to be so bitter, but this is pretty good for a non carbonated beer...

From barrel @ the brewery. Pours slightly hazy light amber with barely any head at all. Clear, vinous aroma with touches of yeast and dust. Moderately dusty onset, leading to intense vinous notes and estery touches. No carbonation. Lingering vinous aftertaste. Good.

On tap as Single Barrel 1-Year Lambic at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Golden colored with no head. Bit spicy and fruity and extremely sour. Intersting, but I’m not sure I’d order another one.

On tap @ CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Golden orange, flat as flat can be. Scent of kumquat and sourdough. Taste is a citrussy sour, not as funky as a gueuze but more brisp and refreshing. Short finish and aftertaste. Worth a try but not earth-shatteringly complex like a blended lambic.

Tap. Pale golden body with a small white head. Aroma of brett, barnyard, funk and caramel notes. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carbb. Sour arom that ends up dry and tart. An excellent Lambik.
