4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottled 2006. Fresh apricot aroma lends a very complimentary character to the tart and the wood. Hazy yellow with a clean sustained white head. Fiercely tart, young fruit and a punch to the jaw. Reminds me of the first shock I got when I first drank Iris. I can get the fruit of apricot, the juice of lemon, and the shock of kumquat. Sun scorched driftwood. I actually don’t like this to be alcoholic. I want to remain completely sober while I drink this.

Thanks to Redlight for getting this on draft. Pours a golden orange. Aroma is dusty and fruity. Flavor is fruity and amazingly sour. Incredibly easy drinking for as sour as it is. Not too sweet, though with a good amount of fruit.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Max’s 72 Hour Belgian Fest – Hazed golden amber, thin wispy white head. Deeply funked sour apricot and cheese aromas rest on soft undertones of old wood. Sour tangy apricot lemon flavors balance very well on the oak and funk notes. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, sour finish. Cantillon does no wrong in my book. Would be great on a hot summer day picnic...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Max’s. Hazy hay colored pour with little carbonation and thin sliver of a head. Vinegar funk and yeast on the nose. Sour and fruity. Very dry and sour flavor. Tart with a touch of fruit on the fnish. Crisp and refreshing. Very enjoyable lambic.

Draft at Max’s Belgian fest poured straw color. Great yeasty aroma with slight fruit. A bit of apricot in the flavor. Also, reminds me of sour lemonade. Nice lambic.

Draft at Redlight. This is WAY too easy to drink. Really nice. Sour and tart. Light body. Not terribly sure what apricot is supposed to smell like, but I liked the way this smells.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful very hazy appearance. Stinks of apricots left out in a puddle. The label is for sure my favourite label ever - a moonscape with an apricot planet rise! Very similar to their Geuze to taste but with some very obvious apricot. Another fantastic intervention from the masters. Oh - this stuff is available at Plonk in Canberra - too great! Thanks guys.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle 2007 vintage $22. Beautiful golden color, hazy. It smells like apricot or peach pits, slight bit of hay, really excellent aroma. Taste is sour apricots, peaches, lemon. Very sour but it doesn’t get in the way at all, delicious flavor. The apricot aroma is really my favorite part about this beer but overall this is probably the best Cantillon I have had thus far.
