3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
37.5cl bottle from ølbutikken, bottled 2005, tasted feb. 2009, 3-4 yrs old.
clear red with a sall slightly offwhitepinkish head that lasts for a minute.
aroma of blue cheese, barnyard, sour beer, red fruits, grapefruit juice, the barnyard and cheese way less agresive than the lambic vinesomething i sampled earlier today.
very sour flavor, well balanced, i get sour, citrussy flavors, wild yeast. aftertaste is a bit less sour, ends dry.
quite to the point and very sour i miss some other flavors than just sour. perhaps lambic is just not me at this stage in my beer upbringing. comparing to others i’ve had, this one lacks breadth in the flavor mix. it is very sour very balanced but not much else.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout lambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 2002 bottled. Reddish pink color, firm head. Typical Cantillon aroma. Oak, lemon and sone honey. A hint of grapes, but certainly not very apparent. The grapes are really there in the flavor. Rubber, oak, and grapefruit. Honey, some yoghurt. A gentle sourness in a fine lambic with a vinous character. Not the best Cantillon there is, but still a great beer.
nov 2012 bottle, tasted July 2014. Red color. Grapes, grape peels, citrus and oak on the aroma. Well rounded sour flavor with grapes, remaining tannines, oak, grapefruit. The complexity is there, the fruit is there. Great beer.

Bottled: Reddish coloured. Hazy. Light reddish head. Wood, sourness, light barnyard and loads of berries in the nose. Flavour is quite sour with a light sweet touch to balance. Quite acidic and dry. Raspberries notable. Ends on a very dry fruity sournote. Quite drinkable and interesting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The color is like raspberry juice and the head is nice and pink. The aroma has notes of barnyard, sweat, basement and wine. The flavour has notes of moderately sour grapes, sweat and basement. I’m not fond of this style. 2406
