4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled directly from a wooden barrel at Brasserie Cantillon.
Unclear yellow colored with no head of course. Dominating hoppy and grassy aroma with a nice fruityness behind the hops. It’s alsmost like smelling the hop plant!
Flavor is very hoppy with a nice sourness also and a dry woody end. Notes of grass from the hops as well and some grapefruit from the lambic. Really nice and quenching and a perfect way to really taste the characteristics of Cascade!

Hazy dark golden coloured. Loads of grapefruits and quite some citric hops in the aroma. Very hop aromatic and fruity (mainly citrus fruits) flavour. Very young. Finish is tart and hop bitter. Low carbonation level. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to MartinKubert for letting me try this at Cantillon Open Brewing Day. Amber body with not much head. Nose is unlike any "lambic" I’ve smelled before. Grassy and piney with obvious Cascade notes but it created an herbal aroma when mixed with this premature lambic base. Taste comes more towards the lambic arena. Sour fruits (citrus among them and not just lemon!), light banryardy notes, more herbal flavors, light wood and pine. Body is tart and acidic with a lingering bitterness. Finishes crisp and tart with more wood, pine, herbal notes and sour fruits. Different, indeed. Not sure how well this would go over as it seemed very different even as an experienced lambic drinker, but I appreciated Martin letting me try this!

Cantillon Open Brewing Day: Flat, hazy gold in colour. Strong grassy, citric hop aroma. Refreshingly dry and tart. Funky, citric lambic flavours blending with grassy, american hops. Reminded me of an american APA with a lambic twist! Cheers to the danes for sharing this!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled @ Cantillon Open Brew day: Golden coloured. Unclear. No head. Aroma of hops and herbs mingled with the tart sourness of the lambic is quite amazing. Very fresh. Flavour is earthy, herbal, tart and quite acidic. The fresh hops mingles great with the lambic base. Is refreshing and ends on a light bitter note. Great one.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Straw-gold to peach colour, hazy; no head. Pure grapefruit nose, C-hops, natural fruitiness of the hops reinforced by the lambic. Faint classic hops aroma. Mindblowing blend of young lambic sugars, sour lactic acid, wood, turpentine and pure C-hops flavour. Old books, incense. Light, refreshing and tart drink. WOW! This is revolutionary! More of this, Jean!
