mariuspoenari (2850) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2017
Clear amber pour. Completely still. Cantillon funk clearly identifiable: horse blanket, soft barnyard funk, overripe apples, with additional notes of honey, citrus, vinegar and brett. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, no carbonation. A very nice unblended lambic, I am liking it more than I was expecting - I think I am starting to enjoy unblended lambic much more than I used to.

kaserov (874) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 4, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, ligeramente turbio, con mínimos restos de sedimento y sin capa de espuma (solo unas cuantas burbujas enormes que se disipan casi al instante). Carbonatación inexistente. Textura acuosa. Aroma ligeramente ácido, a fruto rojo, limón, madera, cuadra o pocilga (no se me ocurre mejor forma de expresarlo), heno. Curioso aroma, supongo que por ser una Lambic Unblended. Muy apetecible y especial. En boca entra ligeramente ácida, con algo de dulzor residual, pero mínimo. Mucho recuerdo de fruto rojo, limón. Madera presente. Final ligeramente ácido donde se nota más la madera. Escaso postgusto ácido. Muy interesante.
