COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
How will a high fermentation beer ferment in the environment of a Lambic brewery where wild yeasts pervail? This old style white beer give you the answer. Ingredients: malt(60%), wheat(35%), oats(5%), hop (exact wording on bottle)

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 Transparent and lighter gold than Zw09, thin white head remains atop. Nose reminds of a very musty basement, dank earth throughout, and some wheat. Flavor is an odd mess, bringing potatoes, salt water, mushroom, and generally, the earthy quality of a vegetable skin. Soft body, salty throughout with a creamy wheat finish. Not a preference and not particularly coherent... bottles on 9/17/11 were very nice, husky, muted, very un-Cantillon mellowness, though not much signature or complexity like Fonteinen.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle shared at the 1st Israeli Sour Tasting. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of lots of barnyard, lots of fruits and a bit of leather. Sour funky flavor with some lemon and a bit of spiciness (some lemongrass) towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Good but not great.

zvikar (3372) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 7, 2011
At the sour tasting, thanks DSG, pours slightly hazy yellow with a nice head, aroma of olives, rotten leaves, pickle juice and floral notes, flavor is of acid, lemon, wheat, mint, balanced with moderate sweetness and light hoppy finish, medium bodied, very nice

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle… Lightly hazed yellow ale with a small creamy white head. Good retention. The bouquet offers a fruity, funky mélange of lemon zest, mild barnyard and light clove. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor presents fruity lemon and funky acidity. A semblance of balance is provided by aged, spicy hops. Tart, tangy, dry finish. Quite wit-like. Nice. Drinkable. Thanks to landhoney for sharing this bottle!

oj83 (12) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2011
Taste is swinging more to the sour lambic than a wheat beer. This beer surprised me, I thought this would be soft and round but turned out to be citrusy with a nice light sourness and some funk. Very enjoyable.

77ships (3735) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 75 cl. bottle split by two@WoSF 2011: hazy yellow with a white head, smells is sour dough hop & yeast, taste is wheat, wild yeast, hop, lots of funk, plenty of horseblanket, barnyard, and lemon medium body & carbonation, tastes exactly like what it is, a wild fermented witbeer, which is amazing & overall a great beer, lots of fun // tried it again at WoSF 2012 // this is evolving quite wonderfully, difference between Iris with which it shared some similarities last year is way bigger now // the bacteria have even most of the yeast away now & it is much clearer, sharper, interesting citrus, floral, barnyard unified flavour now, great stuff // curious as to how this one will evolve in the future // still like this one a lot more than most people seem to

Ernesto987 (3687) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 23, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Subtle complex aromas stilling around a quiet but present bretty prescense. Sour tart pretty flavor with tons going on in background. Amazing beer.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2011
The pour reveals a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma is funky, the brett provides aromas reminiscent of horses and stables, there’s also a lemon presence with wheat. The flavor has a solid dose of brett, it’s tart also with some lemon and wheat along for the ride. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. This isn’t what you’d expect from a Cantillon, but I find it really enjoyable and highly refreshing.

From December 2010 tasting notes. Bottle shared with shrubber85. Hazy straw color with a small white head. Lemon zest, barnyard / wet straw aroma. Tart wild yeast, lemon, musty, dry finish. Medium body.
