2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 One of my least favorite Cantillon offerings, probably because it’s not a lambic and instead has this weird sweet fruit/bitter rind combo flavor that I couldn’t get into. Pass.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Redlight Redlight on 9/14/2013.
Hazy orange body. Pushing reddish. Thin collar. Not much of a head.
Acidic aroma. Very musty. A little wine-like. Malty. Seems like a slight burnt caramel aroma too.
Bright sour flavor. Wine flavors persist here. White wine. Oak. Malty again. The burnt flavors are replaced by bitterness. Grassy bitterness in the finish.
The bitterness is off-putting, as it is very strong. Not crisp like most Cantillon beers.
The bar is set so high for Cantillon, so it’s tough to objectively judge this. It’s good but definitely not up to the standards of a Cantillon fruit lambic.

Bottle at Cantillon. Aroma of barley, old hops and oak. Taste is dry and malty, bit like a sour barley wine, with old hops and lots of tart. Not the best Cantillon, but still interesting.

Bottle at Cantillon. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with herbal and funky notes. Malty flavour with a little caramel, fruit and funk. At the same time hoppy bitter and lambic tart, and it’s not working out well.
