Boutip (6397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy golden color lambic with a large enough foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light barnyard notes with some light tart notes as well which are offset against some wheat malt notes. Taste is lighter then expected with nice notes of barnyard and tartness with some wheat malt. Refreshing factor is great with nice drinkability. Acidity is not a factor and probably one of the only Cantillon that could be deemed a session beer. kbutler1 (1381) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Bottle. 2010 bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden straw color with a slight white head. Pretty muted aroma with notes of floral and barnyard. The taste is pretty low key as well by nice and easy drinking. Nothing extreme by any means. Light mouthfeel with some good carbonation. Somewhat lingering bitterness by other than that pretty clean ending. No really overally sour, more like a Berliner type sourness. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Really interesting beer. Big brett aroma comes out swinging. Aroma would lead one to believe it tastes tarter than it is; it’s only medium light tart as of now. Subtly spicy, all from the yeasts, apparently. Quite nice. Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle, with courtesy of Jakob, very appreciated! :-)
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head.
Aroma is mild, dry grape and fruits with leather, wood and earthy notes.
The flavour is nicely balanced, smooth and fruity with clear parallels to a witbier, but combined with pleasant notes an characteristics from a geuze (dry grape, apples, wood and leather), which compliments each other very well, and makes it very drinkable and refreshing.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Hazy pale yellow with a small and creamy white head. Lovely funky aroma of barnyard, horse blanket etc etc - very Bretty indeed. Very light-bodied, low in carbonation, dry fruitiness, lacto and Brett with an edge of detergents. There’s vague fusty notes as well. Ends very dry and lightly sour. Absolutely no traces of what’s today categorized as a Belgian Wit. 280910

75 cL bottle, courtesy of kappldav123. Pours hazy orange to yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and dry brett, slight leathery and spiced. Fruity, mild acidic and dry citrusy. Lingering fruity, floral and mild hoppy. Brett, bitter and fruity finish. Nice one. Ungstrup (37890) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, and horseblanket. The flavor is sour with notes of lemon, brettanomyces, horseblanket, and wood, leading to a tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2010

A: The pour is a cloudy pale golden-orange color with a surprising amount of white head.
S: The nose is sort of odd, but I expected that from this beer. A blend of musty funk, green melon, and witbier spiciness. A surprising amount of malt character, though it’s of the soft and pale variety.
T: Everything about the flavor of this beer is mild; not at all that I expect from Cantillon. A subtle mix of spice, sweet malt, and very light lactic tartness. The funk is there, but it’s just sort of wet with a bit of a dusty cobweb feeling to it, though I don’t know how I would have ever tasted on before.
M: The body is light with a very soft and subtle carbonation.
D: I was sort of caught off-guard by this beer. While I’m aware of how this beer was brewed, I was expecting much more of the usual Cantillon lambic character to come through...perhaps with age.
