henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2007
Bottle from 2001 - Orange golden slightly hazy body, big bubbled white head; Great deep warm a little greasy nose, not as fresh as your usual Lambic, aroma: wet oak and horseblanket are the most predominant elements, sugared rotten apples and some fresh green fig peel behind, way back there is something fresh like green apples and orange juice and peel; The body has an almost oily texture, (almost) no carbonation, but lots of fresh fruity and lactic acids, it is actually a little bitter as well; It finishes very long, starting a bit slow almost thin, but soon evolving with a very balanced amount of lactic acids, again a small amount of bitterness, it has lots of aroma, more aged then fresh: overripe pear, overripe apple, cowshit, wet oak. Very special, I dont think I have ever smelled the "classic" lambic/geuze (horseblanket, cowshit etc.) notes as clear as in this beer. I poured a glass from some hight, like with a Spanish cider, and it actually brought some freshness to the beer.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2007 My favorite Cantillon so far (12 sampled as of January 2007). This is funk at its most mellow, at its most refined and certainly at the height of its glory. Pours a murky, oily looking beige/orange with not a hint of carbonation. Aroma is a knockout: gargantuan oak barrel, peaches, Vermentino grapes(awesome), grapefruit juice, lemon, pepper, leather and plenty of Brett. Barnyard funk of a lighter variety than as with typical Cantillon(or is this typical Cantillon?), I suspect because no carbonation is forcing it upward and out of the glass. The flavor is just as rich and outstanding. warmer now, more profound barnyard and sour notes arrive with a twisted fruit and noble hop character. Also detected are substantial lemon oils and a throttling oak taste that punishes and carresses my mouth all at once. Palate is as smooth as could be but for the funky bashing my taste buds are enduring. Finishes with a steady lingering sour ness that only subsides if I drink something else. This is definitely not a beer for the faint of heart or uninitiated of palate. Older versions have proven even more exciting and refined. Bad Ass.

worldbfat (8) - USA - JAN 18, 2007 does not count
This is the first lambic Ive ever tried when I wasnt already lit, so I decided to pull out all the stops and serve it to myself in a "clean" juice glass while watching Black Dog on AMC. It combines the woody, wine like aroma of Black Dogs Patrick Swayze with the crisp and surprisingly refreshing sourness of Black Dogs Meat Loaf. That makes it a winner in my book.

bb (8914) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Bottle. Smber beer with no head. Funky aroma with some oak. Very low carbonation. Low malt and nice sour flavor - not overly sour. Some earth, citrus, oak. Nice palalte cleanser. Refreshing. Nice tartness. Oak and tartness are the main components

demitriustown (1188) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2007
750 ml Bottle via trade with WeeHeavySD (Thanks!). Pours a cloudy orange/amber color with no head whatsoever. A very fruity aroma, lemon, grapefruit, apples, and a sharp acidic twist. Flavor is wonderful. First, the brew comes off with a sharp acidic flavor then softly mellows to an oak note that is quite appealing. The citrus and acidity linger throughout but are not overpowering at all. Palate is nice and dry but surprisingly refreshing. Overall, This might be my favorite Lambic yet this is definitely a winner in my book. Cheers!!!

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2007
75 cl bottle from 2005. Hazy deep golden with almost no head at all. Acidic, lemony aroma together with wood. Lemon and woody flavours, very acidic, great complexity! Medium to light body and flat as is expected. Simply great!

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Corked and capped 750 courtesy of and consumed with gputty. This little gem completes my 71 styles - whoopee!!! Ahem. Now then. Deep gold with absolutely no head or carbonation. Acidic, sour, slightly musty nose. Sour peach and white wine notes. Sour, tart flavors, acidic, peach, white grape, lots of flavors assaulting the tongue. Mellows out once fully warmed, and the stanky barnyardy musty hay aromas really come out. Wow, very good! Just hard to really get a handle on.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Capped and corked 750. Pours a dark, cloudy yellow with no carbonation. Nose is sour, barnyard and wood. Flavor follows. Very interesting and tough to dig through, but a pleasant experience.

thornecb (5736) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Cork says 2005. Pours bright gold into a tumbler. No head -- looks like day old piss. Sharp, sour apple and oak. Dry and puckering but very flat with a lasting blue cheese finish.
