Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2006
Bottle shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy. Deep red, small white head. Wow - aroma is so strong - funkiest one yet tonight on a night of funky aromas! Sourness, yet malt there too - someone at the table mentioned fruit skins, Iíll go with that...Taste is very sour, lots of grape skins. Big lingering sourness. Thin but adequate mouthfeel. A really nice lambic - and very drinkable.

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - HogTownHarryís bottle. Hazy orange-pink colour, no head. Lovely mellow funk aroma with fruity wine notes. Flavour - dry, tart funkiness with notes of lemon juice, wine & horseblanket. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 Not the best from this brewery. Poured a ruby color almost no head no lacing. Aroma was of funk stright up barnyard and sourness. Flavor was much the same. refreshing beer but not as good as i wanted it to be.

HogTownHarry (6293) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Bottle (750ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow andI tupalev, my bottle via trade with Boutip. Murky red-ruby, smallish white head. Smells like a sour lambic - funky and fruity, sour, oaky - nice - fruit comes out more on warming, nice grape character on warming. Solid body, very astringent, sour and carbonated. Nice - very drinkable.

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 Cantillonís 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 wasnít complex and didnít 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 Iíve had in a long time,worth 20 + bucks,? get a friend to buy it first

DonMagi (5595) - 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 (5746) - Plymouth, 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.
