Keg at CPK, London. Two-year old version. Pours clear gold, no head. Good tangy nose, hints of butter, bread, grass. Light sweet with some sturdy sourness, light apples, grass, light tangy fruits. Light bodied with very, very fine carbonation- it’s almost flat. Very clean, tangy finish, some mild tart berries, light grassy hops. It’s a tasty well nuanced beer. I actually don’t get much the distinctive, grassy/earthy Cantillon character, but it’s still good stuff.
Keg 2 Ölrepubliken. Hazy burnt golden pour. Very pleasant cheesy funk. Grapefruit citrus. Basement funk. Very easy to drink. GTAEgeek (2426) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Sample of 15 month lambic, poured from a jug at the brewery, after the tour. Pours a clear, golden color, with no head. The aroma is lemon peels, yogurt, leather and a bit of musty attic, and white bread. Off-dry flavor, with a bit of tartness and light funk. Medium body, with an acidic, thick feel, and no carbonation. This is a fun, and illuminating experience, but the beer itself isn't great. Flat, funky, and sharp.

15 month old, at the brewery. Great woody beginning. Sessionable, smooth. Not too funky, fresh, not too sour. Very deep with fruity fresh parts, wood and horse blanket. Fantastic. Mortlach (2511) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 23, 2017
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Giallo antico, torbida, schiuma praticamente assente. Al naso sentori di pasta lievita, limone, mela grattugiata, stalla. In bocca è delicatamente acida, morbida, vinosa, leggermente tart. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Un po' timida. Klimaet (3022) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2017

Brussels Trip. Backlog. Leather, barnyard, wet wood, hints of yellow fruits, vinegar. Light sour, heavily tannic. huineman (730) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2017
Tasting at Cantillon of this Bruocsella-to-be, aged only 18 months, from a pitcher directly out of the barrel. Pours slightly cloudy pale golden, some green hues. No bubbles, no head. Aroma is quite high: honey, quince, peach, cider, green apple, candy, bread... Taste is bone-dry, zero carb. Pungent, sour (indeed), not a hint of bitterness. Long finish with hints of green chili pepper. Quite good, if you ask me.
