3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to Nick for popping this Cantillon! Cheers! It pours clear deep gold with a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up tart citrus like lime notes, hay and some earthy mustiness. The taste is straight up citrus lime, grapefruit acidic tartness and wet horse air funkiness. This has just enough non tart and non acidic notes to keep it interesting for me. Refreshing brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear yellow pour, spotty carbonation, and an aroma of very sour funky lemon. Thin body of lemon funk, very dry aftertaste. Not too sour on the flavor and quite refreshing. Very nice beer, I could savor a bottle of this all by myself.

A: Slightly hazy yellow with minimal head and some spotty lacing.
S: Distinct Cantillon aroma. Barnyard funk and witbier. Wow - really interesting and intriguing.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy yellow appearance with a nice, white head. Very earthy, barnyard fruity, tangy, floral yeasty, lightly minty/herbal aroma. Very inviting aroma. Somewhat musty, farmhouse, refreshing and dry, earthy/floral, light clementine/lemon, yeasty flavor with a dry finish. Flavorful and super easy to drink. Moderately tart. Very refreshing. Would be an awesome session, summer ale if it was more available and cheaper.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, man I am not sure who sent this to me but thank you. Split 3 ways. Pours a thick muted golden color, kind of thick with medium clarity. Aroma is awesome, I love it perfect mix of lambic and wit. Lots of funk and a bit of acid meld with a thick wheatiness. Yeasty malt with whole lot of funk. LOVE IT!!! Flavor is good but no where near as good as the aroma. Its kind of thinner with more acidity and less of the Belgian wheaty yeast. Leaves a lingering slight sourness. I love the aroma, very nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to Eugene for sharing - hazy gold pour - soapy lace - smells fantastic - interesting mix of honey sweetness, lots of tropical Brett notes (pineapple, mango), some melon, very mild lacto and aceto notes - flavor is much drier than the nose - starts with a punch of lactic tartness and light aceto acidity - gets much more mellow through the middle, tasting more like a tangy, citric wit, bordering on a Berliner Weisse - moderate oak on the tail end - finishes with notes of tropical fruit and another rush of acidity - great beer.
