3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Super hazy, burnt yellow body with a white-ish head that fades quickly to a thin, albeit lasting collar. Aroma has that lovely, signature Cantillon critter funk. Mild lactic acidity, funky barnyard, some sweat sock funk, dry wood, light floral & botanical notes, a small hint of yogurt, & a bit of citrus spritz. Taste has lots of soft woodiness, critter funk with a touch of barnyard & sweaty horse funk. Nice lemon sourness, very mild acidity that snaps but doesn’t burn, citrus, & moderate jock strap funk. A touch of mildly herbal & floral notes coming through the funk every now & then. Dry, woody finish with tons of that lingering funk.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate funky, cheese, feet, and lemon. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. The finish has light-moderate cork, light sour lemon, lemon peel, floral notes, and a touch of oak. It’s light bodied with light carbonation. Overall, it smells a lot better than it tastes.
