thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle at the 2011 Zwanze Day at Stone. Pours a mearky orange with minimal white head/lacing. Aroma is strong gym socks with minimal sour aromas. Taste is more funk than sour. Minimal at best sour taste with some faint fruit that tastes much more aged than it is for a year old bottle. Mouthfeel is lacking as the carbonation is very light. Overall, one of my least favorite Cantillon offerings to date. Seemed very mild.

SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle. Crazy wild flower, herbal, green grass, rustic. A touch of plastic. Lemons. Herbal, rustic lemon wheat beer with some green apple yogurt sourness. Touch of solvent is a tad offputing, but pretty enjoyable overall. Saisonlike. Nice.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
(Bottle) Pours pale light hazy golden with a white head. The aroma is woodsy and citric up front with undertones of mold, white and black pepper, alongside a light fruity touch. For a Cantillon this beer is quite low on brett and lacto. Rather one-dimensional compered to other Cantillon beers. The flavor is dry and medium acidic with almost no bitterness. Citric, woodsy, light spicy, crackers-like and light moldy. The mouthfeel is tart and a but watery with near medium carbonation. Citric and woodsy finish. Light bodied.

thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2011
(75cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber, lasting white film of bubbles. Nose of tangerine, gueuze-like, currants and moss. Taste of tangerine, lightly tart, oats, a bit of salt, tangerine and a delicious linger.

4.3
Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2011
The aroma is light earthy and sweet with almost candi sugar notes. It pours golden with a light amber orange hue. The flavor is earthy and yeasty with the same base flavor as Mamouche without the elderberry flavors. The ending is dry and light and not as tart as you would expect from Cantillon.

Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
750ml bottle from the brewery thanks to beerpirates.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with small white head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Great funk with oak sourness and acidic notes. Great barnyard profile with notes of mushrooms, basement and brett. Nice oak too. Nice green apple tartness. Stinky feet.
Taste : Light acidity with nice wheat. Nice oak with nice funk. Not as complex as the nose. Nice finish with wheat, oak, funk and nicer citrusy tartness.
Palate : Fizzy carbonation but a bit weak. Almost quaffable.
Overall : Great complex nose. Nice funk. Not as sour as the regular Cantillon. I like the balance that comes from the added wheat. Great acidity on the finish. Nice oak all around. Very refreshing and rather drinkable for a lambic. Think this will age nicely. Awesome drink.

4.1
piscator34 (2529) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of lemon, horse, wet wood, and faint floral kitchen spice. Typical Cantillon flavours of lemon curd, old wood, and herbs, along with a raw wheat berry note. Unique on the palate as it has a moderate dose of lambic acidity that goes with a soft yet refreshing witbier like texture. Very charming in its subtleties, and super drinkable.
