Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Hazy pale yellow with a small and creamy white head. Lovely funky aroma of barnyard, horse blanket etc etc - very Bretty indeed. Very light-bodied, low in carbonation, dry fruitiness, lacto and Brett with an edge of detergents. There’s vague fusty notes as well. Ends very dry and lightly sour. Absolutely no traces of what’s today categorized as a Belgian Wit. 280910

Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, and horseblanket. The flavor is sour with notes of lemon, brettanomyces, horseblanket, and wood, leading to a tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

brokensail (16053) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy pale golden-orange color with a surprising amount of white head. S: The nose is sort of odd, but I expected that from this beer. A blend of musty funk, green melon, and witbier spiciness. A surprising amount of malt character, though it’s of the soft and pale variety. T: Everything about the flavor of this beer is mild; not at all that I expect from Cantillon. A subtle mix of spice, sweet malt, and very light lactic tartness. The funk is there, but it’s just sort of wet with a bit of a dusty cobweb feeling to it, though I don’t know how I would have ever tasted on before. M: The body is light with a very soft and subtle carbonation. D: I was sort of caught off-guard by this beer. While I’m aware of how this beer was brewed, I was expecting much more of the usual Cantillon lambic character to come through...perhaps with age.

spillata al machesiete... forse una delle birre più beverine che abbia mai bevuto... l’aspetto richiama molto una blanche ma al naso ha un profumo floreale citrico molto sour e leggermente speziato... equilibrio incredibile! è estremamente fresca e dissetante con un acidità perfetta che la rende ancora più gradevole...
