4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mamouche ’14 vintage
Pours a clear, sun yellow color, with a small white head, producing a ring of lacing.
The aromas reveal flowery green pepper, wild honey and dandelions among a well pronounced barnyard funkiness. The beers sourness is easily recognizable on its own, while it blends really well into the dough flowers, without overpowering their nuances, highlighting the beers subtle qualities. Produces a certain wine gum aroma, without turning sweet at all, exhibiting old hops and dusty malts.
Has a lower carbonation, with a slick finish among a pleasantly light bodied beer, with a nice tart refreshing mouthfeel to it.
The taste offers dusty malts among leather and a lemony tang, among matured grassy hops and a brett infused tartness. This foundation gets lended more depth by the addition of young green pepper, wet flowers and a whiff of wild honey. Pushes the flavors into a slick dryness, while featuring a unique blend of flowers and herbs, with green pepper tying the taste together. Finishes with a lemon peel infused sourness, creating a dry crispness, together with earthy malts, showcasing slightly toasted green pepper in the very back end of the palate.
This is a very unique beer, as it creates an unforeseen melange of great flavors, ranging between flowers, honey and fresh green pepper, blending together to a fantastic lambic. It tastes very refreshing, while it reveals a lovely depth of flavors, which makes this a gulper and a sipper at the same time.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of strong elderflower, light barnyard and doughy honey notes, incredibly inviting. Taste is lots of elderflower, nice bitterness and a peppery harsh horseradish like tearing as it goes down your throat, bitterness is almost like wood bitterness, this has beer seemingly has more oak character than other Cantillons, and to me is also among the best fruited with Lou Pepe’s.
