4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 Tasting at my place. Thanks for another great Lambic share from Maakun. Bloemig, bloesem, berm bloemen, fluitekruid en grassen. Druiven. Verder uiteraard zuur en paardenstal. Pride & Prejudice: the Beer. Backlog from 2015/05/26.
Quintessence 2016. Hazy pale golden with thin white head. Cow parsley, celery, nectar, floweriness and nutmeg. Very light sour, salty. Medium body, minerallike. Very supple. Nice feeling, great taste.

(Cantillon Vigneronne) Bottle 750 ml at home, served into a Cantillon tasting glass, vintage 2014. ABV 5%
Bright yellow colour on the body, nice haze in it, with almost one finger of white thin head on top, collapsing fast.
Aroma of white grapes, quite fruity. Very inviting.
Taste is nicely sour, with white grapes, peach, again quite fruity, old wood.
Medium body with soft carbonation, pretty tart on the palate.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light hazy straw. Nice white foam on the edges of the glas.
The nose has apples and lemon, some hay, some candy apple, yellow raisin and even a hint of apricot. Awsome nose
Taste is light fruity with elderflover sweetness initially turning mineral and turns lemon bitter. The hint of fruit in this lambic is brilliant. Mouthcoating and long lasting, dry aftertaste. I got maximum sourness and acidity in the aftertaste which was great. Love this one!

Bottle at Frank’s. Thank you whoever brought. Nice big white grapey sour. Tons of acidity, maybe it’s just the other sours we’ve had before this one but pretty intense. They’re starting to blend together at this point but I’d like it on its own for sure.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled @The Festival in Florida. Aroma: loads of green sour apples and lots of acidity notes. App: hazy straw, no head. Taste and palate: light body, soft carbonation but tingling, dry sour finish. Overall: awesome. Great palate. So dry that I want to get another sip to quench my thirst.

A+ the white wine grapes with a lambic base is one of best combos in my opinion. A guy named Vinnie in Cali does a great job too. The grapes add a perception of sweetness to balance out tart. The light oak and funk was as well perfectly balanced with the sourness. A stranded island beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Straw gold with white head at first, then quickly nothing. Aroma is full of white grape, lemon, melon rind and the signature Cantillon wildness. Taste is sour, juicy, quenching. Balanced as usual. Great from start to finish.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pours a yellow golden color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has some light fruit, but a lot of acetone to it. Taste is sour and fruity, though very dry, and a bit of wine to it.
