Bottled 26 December 2017. Slightly opaque deep gold pour with white head that quickly dissipates leaving a solid ring and medium spotty lacing. Lite earthy funky/dry hay nose; some floral hop notes too. Sour green apples/pear notes; grassy; lite acidity. Medium lite body; lite carbonation; lite astringency. Lighter and more easy drinking than other Cantillon and 3F Lambics. I enjoyed it and would definitely recommend!

one of the best beers ever with flavors of buttery soaked oak and grassy lemon wood with slight tartness. This beer is as refreshing as delicious. Just wish I didn't spill half of it.

Pours a foggy, murky orange-straw with a finger and a half of off-white foam. Aroma is light bread and wheat with a subtle sour twist, with herbal and citrus hops behind. Flavor profile is light bread, wheat, barley, and oak with very subtle and delicate notes of herbal, citrus, and floral hops. It adds a slight complexity to the subtle base beer. Mouth feel is still, with a medium thickness. There is a light chalkiness to it. Overall, superb beer between the well crafted base lambic and light hop additions.

Served in a bulb glass from a 750mL bottle.

Cantillon is always such a breath of fresh air after a lot of American wild beers. So refined, subtle but full of complexity. If only it was easier to get.
