I dont like sourness in a beer. I dont like 99 out of 100 sour ales, wild ales, lambics or fruitbeers. But after tasting the Cantillon Kriek, which was way better and way more balanced then other krieken or lambics, I was very curious about other Cantillon brews. To other raters a 3.1 may be a low score. I found this beer to be pure sour and very very well balanced, but just too sour for me. I dont dislike it, but its just not my style. Still: very recommendable this beer, even if you dont like sour ales, lambics etc etc.

bhensonb (14606) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
375 ml. bottle. A nice Bret type aroma combined with honey. A sour whiff. The color is a light orange gold with a white head that ringed. A bit thin bodied. The carbonation is very mild. The flavor is primarily lactic sour. There are varying fruit notes, to accompany the earthy, Bretty, funkiness. Could be old mushrooms or sweat sox. Very interesting. Not an everyday drink, I think. Refreshing in an unusual way.

Tmoney99 (14000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Cork and cap bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that diminihed quickly with fair lacing. Heavy fruity and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Heavy tart sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. This is a standout beer for a select few.

Scopey (13557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle at the Rake, shared with Duff and Reakt. It pours hazy golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is sour white grape, juicy fruit, lemon and skunky. It tastes of juicy white grape, lemon, lime, red apple, grass, and a little soap. It is quite light bodied and has a fruity tart finish. The sweet-sour balance is spot on. Yum.
