250ml on Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels (€3.70):
Definitely an interesting beer from Cantillon, I can only assume this one is a good beer based on the reviews online but it's definitely an acquired taste & one that I wasn't quite ready for when I tried this one. The beer was quite light & flat with a light body as well, overall the beer was dry & earthy with a sourness throughout & quite a lot of tart flavours too. A new style that I'm glad to have tried & perhaps I'll get to sample another like this at some point when I'm next in Belgium but I can't imagine it's a type of beer I'd pick up very often sadly.

On cask at Moeder Lambic, what a joy!

Appearance is dull hazy gold with a big bubbled head, leaning still.

Smell is spritzy sour citus, sweet cereals and a little baby diaper

Taste has a real fruityness comes through the funk, resulting in a robust yet extremely balanced taste, enhanced by the soft mouthfeel of the cask. A little salinity as well, almost gose like, and very clean (save the wild funk). An indisputable world classic for a reason, amazing.

From a pitcher at the end of the tour at the brewery.

Pours a semi clea yellow, with no foam to speak of.

Smell is funky and lemony with some acidity.

Taste is mildly sour and funky. Slight hint of bitterness. Very crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel is almost flat and thin.

Really great to try the base for the Cantillon beers, and it's of course delicious.

Poured from pitcher at the brewery in August 2017. Pours a nice yellow with a small and quickly dissolving head. Nose is funky, earthy, a bit sour, and a bit of horse saddle. Taste is nice - sharp and sour, with some funk. Mouthfeel was dry and medium bodied.

From a pitcher at the brewery, 18 months old. Very clear yellow. Extremely still. No head whatsoever. Fruity, sour, wooden nose. A bit abrasive sourness as first, but then very wine like with the wood and white wine grape flavors. Slightly syrupy. Semi-dry. Very good sipper, and an absolute pleasure to try.
