[Vintage 2004]. Pours orange into the glass with a small low head. Sour and flowery aroma, dominated by perfumed hops and a bit of sweat. Nice balanced flavours, wood, grape, pine and lemon being present with a sour-acid ending. csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 July ’07 tasting. Orange gold color with a light head. Aroma of horseblanket, hay, and light citrus. Initial taste is honey, citrus, leather, and earthiness followed by a tart acidity and hops bitterness along with earthiness and citrus.

I shared a 4 year old bottle of this with JB from Boulevard last night and I was reminded how wonderful it is. The beer is dripping with wonderful brett flavors and the extreme sourness I was bracing myself for, since this is Cantillon, was not there. It was sour, but pleasantly so. Thanks JB!
Amber pour with a big white head. Aroma is lemon citrus and funk. Flavor is strong leather, woody tobacco, lemons, earth, funk. Very sour finish. Interesting. garthicus (2933) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 9, 2008

375 ml bottle from south bay drugs. Vintage 2004. This one pours a cloudy orange-gold color with a small white head that rapidly vanishes. The aroma is strong and complex with citrus, grapes, thyme and some funk. The flavor is wonderfully tart and sour with lemony citrus, grapes, sweet malts and a light spiciness. The mouthfeel is silky smooth with lively, prickly carbonation. The finish is long with lingering sweetened lemon drops. Overall: This is a great beer for lovers of sour beer--very drinkable.

medium frothy off white head, nice golden pour with min carbonation, smells very fruity, kind of hops with a barn yard smell with a hint of lemon, very dry in taste something that sticks in your mouth not making it want more but making the taste longer.

Vintage 2005. I am still trying to get used to sour beers. Poured an orange haze with a big foamy head. Aroma is sour with a breath whiff of barnyard funk. This is sour. Every drink makes you pucker. The citrus edge comes through nicely. thewolf (12631) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2008

Pours a light hazy, deep yellow. A good, staying, albeit small, white head on top. Aroma is very musky, barnyard with some lemony freshness to it. Mouthfeel is extremely dry, it almost feels as if the beer never touches my tongue, but somehow floats a miniscule distance from my tastebuds. Flavour is not as tart as expected, the citric edge peeping through again. The dryness is extreme as well. Not terribly balanced for a lambic, I’d say.
This one must be off somehow, because I can only describe it as vile. Aroma and flavors are both way off. Funk in the aroma - and not the good funk that you get from some wild yeast strains. I’ll try it again when I get the chance. I like to give brewers the benefit of the doubt, but this one is just not good at all.
