    Cantillon Grand Cru Bruocsella Lambic Bio 2007, bottled: 20 October 2010, at l'Autre Oeil in Aylmer, QC. Pours a hazy golden colour with hardly no head, as not carbonated, so no lace. Sour nose with grape and apple notes. Flat wet mouthfeel. A little sour, but mostly watered-down, so not a sour bomb, but quite refreshing. Looks more like freshly squeezed apple cider at the last pour, pretty cloudy. Taste of gooseberries with some hints of wood. Quite interesting for my first of this style. Finally done all styles available for the time being.

    Aroma is strong and fruity, mainly apple with a little pear, and has a pleasant woody undertone. It pours a rich, and bubbly to the point of being hazy, golden orange; there was not much head, but I have had this bottle for a while before realizing it was an unblended lambic, a style I have never had before. Fruity flavor is more like a cider, or even wine, than a beer, but still quite tasty and pleasing, with an undertone of green wood and a sour apple bite. Texture is very smooth, yet a little edgy, leaving a fruity, woody and rather tart finish.

    Somewhat hazy golden yellow. Flat, no foam at all, somewhat sparkling. Aroma is complex bouquet of sour fruits and flowers. Taste is somewhat sour; apples, pear, unripe prumes, complex. Aftertaste is dry, little sour. (Velp 201303)

    I'm always amazed at the term 'unblended lambic' because whatever is in my glass and the bottle is most certainly blended. A pale orange-gold pour, no head, no effervescence. Earthiness and muskiness make up the aroma along with tart fruit. Flavour is very sour with just the right amount of fruity funkiness.

    wow, what a beer- takes a bit off time for your senses to used to it .. Pours a almost flat yellow .. . aroma and taste - wet wood, with light touches of oak and a sick horses sleeping blanket .. . quite amazing how i didn't care for it at first, to loving it when i was finishing it... A cool beer and happy to have tried another unblended .. . Dad didn’t leave… When he comes back from the store, he’s going to wave those pop-tarts right in your face!

    Grapes, some green apples, vinegar. There’s a solid funkiness from whatever bacteria live in the Cantillon brewery. This was my first Cantillon and so I was girded for some mouth-puckering sourness. Unfortunately for me, this version is of a relatively mild sourness for a tart Belgian. I mean, it has a strong vinegar note and citric tartness, but it didn’t quite knock my socks off, like I was hoping for. It has certain qualities comparable to an unflavored kombucha. Flat. Drinkable out of interest in the different and odd but a bit disappointing really. I could see it becoming an acquired taste if I had easier access.

    unblended lambic aged three years in oak. after a couple Cantillon beers, I'm just not seeing what the fuss is about, ESPECIALLY for the price! aroma is muddled lambic/sour notes, like I've had before but watered down without the usual pleasantries. below avg. it pours flat - no head. no carbonaion provides a watery mouthfeel, and since the flavor was also watered down vegetal sour, acidic...this just isn't a good beer, for any price. sour, but not too much. cidery, but barely. this isn't delicate, it's just dull. almost all lambics i've had have been better. I'll give one of their krieks a shot, then i'm done with overpriced overrated cantillon.

    Pretty average here in terms of Cantillon. I've come to really adore the puckering dry sourness that I associate with Cantillon. This was a nice beer, albeit a bit boring for them. The aroma was lemony, horsey and quite suprisingly fruity. The flavor is almost delicate for Cantillon, which seems odd just typing that. Lemony, oak, citrusy twang, and funk. Not really up to Cantillon's famous sour power, but still a very nice beer.

    This unblended lambic pours a hazy orange yellow color form a 750ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is sour, tart, yeasty and fruity. A medium bodied lambic. Tart, citrusy and lemmonish. Touch of barnyard and funk. Some hay and still a lot of citrus. The carbonation is greatly subdued. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is very crisp and extremely dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

    (2002). Orange, hazy colour, no head. Traditional Cantillonish nose, only sourness. Flavour is enourmously dry sourness and wooden hints. Totally lovely. A good one!
