Cantillon blows my mind. Pours a rich deep opaque straw hue. No head. The apricots really shine through. At first it smells like a trad. Gueuze, but then underneath it all a sweetness and hazy jamlike smell appears. The apricots fade into the flavor which is like a subdued Gueuze with small notes of sweetness. More sour than anything I’ve had by Cantillon. Exceedingly sour. Exceedingly awesome. G-rat

Bottle (from boxbeers). Pours hazy golden with whiteish head. The small head stays. Aroma is classic Cantillon funk, sour, fruity, sweet, somewhat floral. Flavor is sour, fruity, peaches, apricots, plums, citrus, soured pickles, funk, touch of bitterness. Overall: great, but I enjoyed the fresh (non refermented) version a lot more. Fresh one was a lot more fruit forward, than this.

Mocno zbalansowane i mocno morelowe, tak można generalnie określić to piwo. Ogromnie dużo jest w tym piwie świeżej moreli, która właściwie totalnie dominuje to piwo. Odpowiedni stosunek kwaśności i dzikości pozwolił w tym piwie na totalną dominację moreli. Szczerze nie wiem co więcej o tym piwie napisać, co absolutnie nie umniejsza temu piwu.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Flaska från Rom. Disigt gyllengul med liten vit skumkrona. Frisk doft av syrliga äpplen, aprikos och mousserande vin. Syrlig, torr, frisk och lätt sträv munkänsla. Smak av syrliga äpplen, aprikos, citrus, druva, vitt vin och nektar.

From a shared bottle at the brewery. Pours a hazy, dull gold color, with a small, bubbly head. Bright apricot aromas, with some leather, cardamom, flowers, and butterscotch. Sweet and fruity, with just a light tart flavor. Light body, acidic, crisp, and clean. This is a lovely lambic. Just enough fruit, without being overbearing. Delicious.

4.2
beskid (338) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2017
2017 edition on tap at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. Aroma is light sour, barnyard, apricot, gooseberry. Taste is sour at first, then sweeter with every sip, apricots come out and balance greatly the rest. Some light herbal-woody notes in the end.
