    #4800 - wish list. Very musty aroma. Grapelike undertones. Lots of funk. Body is more acidic than the St L. Flavor still has a little lemon, but also sweet musty grapes and barnyard. Good stuff, though maybe a little too much coin for a "good" beer.

    Burnt orange, quick burst of carbonation but no head. Expected barnyard funk on the nose, sharp and edgy yet inviting. Tartness up front with notes of lemon, grass, hay, and a faint sweetness from the grapes. Truly superb.

    Bottle: Poured a bright golden yellow color lambic with a small pure with bubbly head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of horse blanket with light green apple acidity and light tart finish. Taste is a well balanced mix between some tart notes with light oak and some horse blanket and soaked leather. Acidity is well balanced but muscat grapes are hard to noticed but could have dropped the acidity level since I seem to noticed that there is less acidity then in a regular Cantillon product.

    Yet another great Cantillon product. Aroma was white grapes, musty, acidic with the usual nut-check barnyard aroma. Flavors were suprisingly soft for a Cantillon, with the muscat grapes demanding attention with the other flavors bouncing around. It has the usual Cantillon calling card flavors but it's not quite as mouth stripping as say..the regular gueuze. Very enjoyable and worth every penny.

    Pale, orange-gold color with decent carbonation but no lasting head. Aroma is has a bit of cheese to it. Musty. Flavor is very acidic; tart and sour with lemon coming out in the finish. Leaves you puckering and desperately wanting more. After several sips I began to detect a grape sweetness up front, followed by some wheat. Medium-light body makes it very easy to sip quickly. Very refreshing. I hand carried this bottle all the way from the brewery about 8 months ago, and kept it properly stored. If only the brewery was a few thousand miles closer!

    Bottle. Cloudy orange with a hard fought for slim white head, soon gone. Aroma is tart, sour grapes, oaky and barnyard. Flavours are tart, sour, barnyard, sour grapes and quite acidic. Light bodied and low carbonation. Very good.

    Orange colour, small white head. Wonderful deep aroma of grape-peels, old cheese, grapestones, grapefruit and lemon-peels with a note of cask. Dry tart flavours of grapefruit, grape-peels and hay. Fruity tart finish of green grapes and wood. Simply wonderful!

    Yum, almost the whole 750ml to myself, woohoo! Who woulda thunk it? Not me. But, heck, I enjoy these lambics these days. Excellent funky, tart, wheaty, and fruity aroma and flavor. The flavor had just a touch of the muscrat grapes behind the main lambic flavors, really a good showing. Refreshing, moderate body for the style, but refreshingly light overall. Appearance was typical, hazy pale yellow and hardly any carbonation.

    Man they can put some tart in there poured a cloudy orange color no head. Aroma was yeasty and musty. Flavor was hard to find cause of the tartness. apples and grapes.

    07.29.05 750ml bottle. I don’t know if this was a bad bottle; I just can’t tell sometimes when I’m trying a new Cantillon. The pour is murky gold with a crazed foam fading quick but leaving a sticky lace. Aroma is an almost overwhelming blast of sour milk, sulfur, wet leather, horrible cheese. Above all that is a positively out of place and grossly overdone blanket of bad chablis drenched in butter. Luckily most of the buttery assault seems to get left at the door. Flavor is mild enough, sweetish for a Cantillon, fruity, not maddeningly sour as it’s toned down by the fruit. There’s plenty of funk and cheese, some leather, grapeskin astringency. The smell of this stuff was just too much for me to handle.
