Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows funk and horseblanket, melon, elderflower and lemon rind.
Similar flavour; more funk, elderflower, grassy and spicy hops, peach and apricot.

older bottle, hops were faded and basically non-existent. Overly bitter, distracting from the sour/funky base.

Pale rust and big fading loose white head. 3.75
White vinegar nose with some peach and flowers. 3.75
Saltines, a whack of sour, lemon twist, and lots of tangerine hops. 4
Lime curd finish and lingering tartness with some chalk.
Medium, sharp, dry but smooth. 4.24

Labeled as Cuvée Saint-Gilloise and dry-hopped with Hallertau, not Styrian Goldings

Dose of funk but real citrus hops, too. And I’m liking the sherbety Lacto feel. But somehow I feel like Cantillon is out of their comfort zone. This is not hugely distinctive - Jandrain-Jandrenouille do better when it comes to marrying farmhouse flavors and big hops. The bottle suffered from being the last in a long night, and it is well put together like everything from this brewery; it’s just not capturing the magic for me. 4
