markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle generously shared by the Tampa Crew. Pours a still yellow color. Nose is oak, vinegar, funk, lemon, and some tartness. Flavor follows with oak, mild vinegar, some sour citrus, some funk, and big tartness. Light in body and very complex.

Was really looking forward to this as I needed the style tick but it did not come out well. Tasted off right away and basically somewhere between unsweetened juice and wine. Not sure if this is how it should be but not nice. Smells of Apple, bubble gum, cider and wild berry. Orangy pink.

(2015 batch) Really bad for cantillon, tastes like bad sour cabbage. A bit bitter. Weird aftertaste. SHAME!

Bought @ Hopduvel. Grand Cru Bruocsella 2014. Bottled 25 August 2017. Aroma is lactic, yogurt, fermented white grapes and a tad vanilla. Funky! Taste is yogurt, old soaked oak, apple, fermented white grapes, muscadet. Mouthfeel is great, a tad wry, a tad yogurt and oil. Oily filter on the lips, very nice.

Vynikající a velmi zajímavá zkušenost. Znalci lambiku ví. Skvělé po všech stránkách. Naprosto originální, nemám co víc napsat.

mariuspoenari (2969) - 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.
