Beer5000 (6381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2009
Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Hazy reddish body with a disappearing pink head. Aroma is acidic, barnyard and fruity. Flavor is sour, young fruit, wood and tart. The finish is long and acid. Delicious and relatively mild to be Cantillon.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2009
very good lambic, definitly unique but the geuze funkiness remains. Very impressed with this and like it a lot. pours a clear reddish purple pink. funky aroma and dry pallate with a pure inviting finish.

Tmoney99 (14284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.

sebletitje (9954) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2008
courtesy of tpd975. Pours reddish with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is lughtly sour and vinegar with some oak - wood in teh nose. Taste sour and yeasty with fruits that help the beer gain a very red wine like mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but the whole feel was really enjoyable.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2008
rbesg07, bottle opened at west brewpub. a welcome relief from the west beers. clear pink, rose and rusty tea aroma, slightly cidery, hints of sherbet, not as intense as the other lambics sampled at west

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tpd975. Pours a still clear deep redish copper. Aroma is vinous with red wine vinegar, rotting citrus, spicy brett, and oak. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and moderate to strong amount of acidity. Very good.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Courtesy of the Otown December Tasting. Bottle. Pour was a nice light plum color. Aroma of soured red wine vinegar. Flavor was OMG!!! Sour sour sour. Honestly, it was over powering and so hard to detect other flavors. I definitely detected the wine, and some grapes, and that was about it. Not a fan of the sours. Sorry!!!

Altra straordinaria gueuze di Cantillon, non saprei come descriverla da quanto era buona; bottiglia da 75cl smezzata al Duca con Andre che il miglior seguace del lambic.
