Ungstrup (29482) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2007
My 1000th Belgian rating. Bottled. An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is acidic and tart with notes of grapefruit and berries. The flavor is acidic and tart with notes of grapefruit, lactic acid, and sour berries. Nice acidity. Thanks Patrick

oh6gdx (20619) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Bottled. Yellow a bit hazy colour, white big foamy head. Sea buckthornberry and hops + a bit of malt in aroma. Authentic Sea buckthorn flavour. I usually pick some 10+ litres of these berries every year, which kind of hurts on the hands .)

omhper (19663) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2006
[Bottled, thanks oh6gdx!] Cloudy pale yellow, rich airy head. Distinct citric Cantillon aroma with some perfumy soap added. Expectedly dry and vinegary with lively mouthfeel. I have not tasted these berries, but the berry character in this lambic is less evident than the one in Soleil de Minuit. It does however have an additional light fruitiness and a light bitterness.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2007
At One Pint Pub, Helsinki; vintage 2003, 4 years old
Hazy blond color; no head, but a thin foamy collar. Strong aroma, where the Lambic mixes with the persistent aroma of a French creamy cheese. The mouthfeel has probably been softened by the age; there is some round malt flavor, with strong citrusy character (mix of lemon and pink grapefruit), without being extremely sour (for a Cantillon, of course). The final as well is quite round, with a crescendo of astringency. An easy Cantillon; deep and pleasant, as usual.

Theis (13549) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle (Vintage 2005) at One Pint. Cloudy amber - white head. Nice high sourness. Wooden. Lovely wooden. High dryness. Gooseberries. Lovely.

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Vintage 2002, bottled 37,5 cl
Hazy orangy yellow, small head. Strong acidy and sour nose: earthy (cork) with barnyard aroma. As to expect: dry. Very carbonated, acidy sour flavor. Fruity, earthy notes are in the background, not much buckthornberry. Fruityness makes this almost enjoyably refreshing. Otherwise quite "ordinary" Cantillon. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
Re-rated, made from vintage 2003 lambik, bottled in 2005
Hazy golden, decent head. Sour Cantillon nose. Very sour, much drier than Cantillon Groseille à maquereau sampled just before this. Sea buckthorn is dominating the flavor quite nicely. (7/3/8/4/15 3.7)

Christian (11217) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2007
Yellow with a small white head. Barnyard aroma with some perfumed berry notes happening. Lots of that cantillon grapefruitish sourness, not a lot of berry in the flavour.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jer. Cloudy light orange color with a white head. Ooof. Rubber, plastic, and soda water aromas. Lots of salt, lemon juice, and a touch of grass. The taste isn’t much better and is actually quite watery. Fairly salty and rubbery. At least some decent citric qualities of lemon and kumquat. A touch acetic. Really disappointing.
