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.

Bottle @ cantillon. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of green tea, oxidized hops, herbal, like an old dipa, barley, dried fruits. It’s a mess.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Decent to solid. Ish. Amirite guys? I missed Zwanze Day ’13 due to a severe case of scheduling confusion, but i tried this recently and the results were there. Would drink this again, for sure. Just enough horse blanket and funk to keep it on the radar. Love it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Cantillon. Clear copper with thin white head. White raisins, rye, light spices, basil, green leaves. Sour with syrupy sweetness and hoppy bitterness. A bit too many strong flavors in the palate. Body is thin to medium. Carbo is very low. The bitterness, sweetness and sourness are a bit struggling to go along well. The bitterness leaves a bit of a stale finish.
