Sometimes you open up a bottle you had intended for a "landmark" rating just because it is a beautiful day and the mood hits you. This is one of those times. 2003 bottling. Medium brown with a strong purple streak, very little head. Aroma is straight horseblanket, cheddar, and sour funk. Signature Cantillon, and in my opinion, fantastic. The usual piercing sourness is followed by somewhat more cheddar than I normally find in Cantillon’s brews, with a tannic finish that evokes grape skins. Great stuff.

I was hoping for more, but this was pretty straight forward, simple, and typical, although decent. The pour was ruby red, light haziness, weak initial head, no retention, zero lacing. The aroma was brett, barnyard funk, horseblankets, tart fruits. The flavor followed suit, but wasn’t complex and didn’t really feature grapes or any one single fruit. Mouthfeel was flat, acidic. Again, not that distinctive, but refreshing for a summer day at the beach.

Its so amazing to come from drinking Miller Lite to drinking a Lambic like this. Ipaid 25 bucks for this bottle,poured it in the glass and got the aroma of horse sweat and field hay aroma,and thinking this is wonderful. Taste was horse blanket and sour grape skins,very astringent,just the most interesting taste I’ve had in a long time,worth 20 + bucks,? get a friend to buy it first

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
The sweatiest cantillon so far. Aroma is wet hay and sheep, wit fruity cherry hints and some grassy hop too. Taste is unblended with nutty characters and the grapes are stubtle but there. Intresting but not my fav from cantillon.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Sprinkle via trade. Sour tart aroma with light grape and moderate woodiness. Pours a cloudy orangish-pink with a minimal white head that fades to nothing very quickly. Outstanding sour tart flavors with just a hint of grape in the background. Nice dry woody finish. One of my favorite Cantillons.

RichardGretton (4296) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2006
Bottle 2005. Dark red beer with a lightish head. The aroma is quite vinous, warm, spiced and cherry/strawberry fruits. The flavour is quite sour and bitter with a warm fermented mouth feel. Overall a reasonable beer.
