snowcrash000 (209) - Cologne, GERMANY - APR 20, 2018
Pours a hazy, straw coloration with a tiny, fizzy head. Smell is dominated by sour funk, with some apricot and just a hint of citrus zest coming through as well. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by barnyard funk and hints of apricot and citrus. There's a light estery yeast note and a certain earthy and slightly spicy note to this as well. Finishes very dry and acidic, with only a little sweetness coming through, and another mouth-puckering dose of tartness. Medium body and carbonation. I really didn't feel that this has a very rich, fruity apricot note to it all, maybe it's the vintage (2017, I believe). The apricot is there, but quite subdued and overshadowed by the strong, funky sourness and citric acidity. This is a very nice lambic without a doubt, but highly overrated in my opinion, as it is neither especially subtle nor complex. Still, probably my favorite by Cantillon, which is in no small part due to the moderate carbonation that isn't as overdone as in many of their other offerings.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2018 Smells fresh, a bit soapy and some yeast. Tastes fresh with several layers - carvonation, sourness, some dried apricots. Very nice refreshing sour beer with fruity notes

Taboada (1721) - Compostela (Galiza), SPAIN - MAR 28, 2018
Tap. Half pint. Tasted on the 17/03/2018 at "NaparBCN", Barcelona (Spain). Hazy golden colour with a low to medium beautiful white foamy head. Aroma of apricto, lacto, tart and barnyard. Taste is sour with strong presence of apricot and tart. High carbonation, extremely well balanced beer with a medium dry and sour finish. Next one please!

craftbeerbob (12) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2018
Bit of whale, not the finest Cantillon I've ever tasted but a fine, fine beer nontheless. Aroma is balanced funk and apricot the taste is that refined subtle funk (which the brewer is so well renowned for) with a suggestion of apricot
