4.28/5  rDev -4.7%

From a 375 ml bottle (dated June 2012) into a tulip.

A-The brew is a solid golden color with a slightly cloudy appearance. There are a few bubbles visible, but the one-finger head of white foam drops pretty quickly to a thin cap and then to a collar.

S-The scent is pretty strong with an earthy funky note up front and vinous acidity in back. I detect a fair amount of white wine vinegar here.

T-Like the smell, the taste is funky and earthy up front. The sour notes come in later with green apples and white grapes and a long, long finish that reminds me of good vinegar.

M-The feel is light with a persistent carbonation that manages to be both crisp and soft feeling at the same time.

O-This is another solid offering from Cantillon. It is well-balanced and the long finish is pleasingly tart. Although I may not rate it as high as my favorite gueuze, Golden Blend, I would happily drink this all day long if my stomach could handle the acidity.

4.64/5  rDev +3.3%

37,5 cl bottle from 31 August 2012 into a tulip glass, produced a compact white head, resedes to a layer of foamy film and good lacing. Colour is a bright orange gold with no visible carbonation. 4

S – an immediate sourness edge, grapes, honeysuckle, full of tart berries, unripe blueberries, a dry floral aspect. Souring malt also comes through, granary mill. Wow, this has an amazing array of sour, fruity and complex notes woven together. 4.5

T – a sour sweet lemon, dry fruitiness with a pervasive tart sourness, raspberry, sourness everywhere! But also lots of floral and fruity notes, green apple, earthy pear, a strong yeasty funk, with hay and some horseblanket, very dry toward the finish, mouthpluckering tartness and dry barn. Good full long finish. Balance is steller, just enough sour prickle to coat the palate but enough fruity yeasty character with floral hops to make a very tasty beer. 4.75

M – A light start leads to a big fat sour presence that leaves a tart coating, almost candylike, and slides down so smooth, little detectable carbonation it is very zesty though and lively. Drinks excellently with a nice prickle to it. 4.5

Worth the hype I would say, Cantillon makes outstanding beers, and are turning me around on lambics and sours! This is surely one of the finest out there with deft complexity and balance. Definitely one to savour and sip, a very pleasing all-round experience. 4.75
